  1. Tried L's today for a late eat in lunch and enjoyed it very much. Nice little place....very friendly and good tasty food. We will be getting our delivered food from them from now on. I hope they are is a chef owner place, so I was told..don't let the storefront fool you as it is in a bit of a delapidated plaza.

      Thanks bobimken. I was hoping for at least one positive comment. No idea what happened to my Spell Checker but fortunately it seems to be working now.

        That's so funny. Beau and I tried delivery from them yesterday as well.

        We were reasonably impressed by the thoughtfulness of their packaging. This demands saying since care here suggests care elsewhere.

        The food was good by Chop Suey House standards. For those in the neighbourhood who knew Holima, the food's better than that was. Certainly better than any other Chinese restaurant in my area that delivers. The noodles lacked wok hay, possibly from starting from clean scratch. Hopefully that'll build with time and a well-seasoned wok.

        For sure, it's going to be our permanent go-to Chinese delivery spot. For dine in, we'll probably still go to Congee Queen.

        Bobinken, do you know how the dine-in experience compares with Congee Queen? Does L's happen to have a wine list good for something other than cleaning drains?

        1. re: Googs

          Congee Queen is much bigger but L's is very clean and comfortable. The wait staff is great...very friendly. I'm not sure that they serve wine as yet...we didn't order any. I think the food is way better than most Chop Suey type houses around me that deliver and certaiinly way better than Holima. I am getting a bit tired of Congee Queen's menu...I appreciate having a few different dishes to choose from.

          We went there for a late lunch so dined about 3:30PM and there were no other dine in customers ....can't tell you how the service might be if it was crowded but when we were there it was great. LOL There were a number of take out orders though. We ate in and thought everything was VERY GOOD. I think dine in food usually tastes better than takeout.

      2. Any info from people?? What do they serve, where are they, that type of stuff??

        2. L's has 15% off this month of April.

          1. Picked up some Hakka Chow Mein, Singapore Style Fried Vermicelli and Braised Tofu with vegetables about 3 pm. Then the world got in the way and I wasn't able to eat it until 7 pm after a few minutes in the micro. Still very good after that delay and reheating. As Googs said it is now the number 1 take out.

            1. re: Herne

              We had the Hakka Chow Mein too (among other things that were delicious) and thought it was outstanding.....yep, the number 1 takeout place now, for sure.

              1. re: bobinken

                We had the Cantonese Chow Mein. They packaged the noodles separately from the rest of the materials. I was confused at first, like heeeeyyy that's not my hot & sour soup (which is also good btw). Then I realized that makes the noodles crispy or soft depending on how long the two components meet. Very considerate especially since Beau likes his soft and I crispy.

                1. re: Googs

                  Went to L's for the third time and also had takeout from them again....PERFECT and consistently GOOD. They told me that many people didn't realize they had such a nice dine-in restaurant...thought it was only a take out place....they are such great people to deal with. They even changed up a couple of dishes for us. I think that they might also specially make up some items that aren't on the menu if they have all the ingredients.

                  1. re: bobinken

                    This may interest you then. L's Chinese Eatery is one of the not-so-secret locations for the run.

                    1. re: Googs

                      Thanks for the info....I wish I could make it.

                      1. re: Googs

                        Yep, we're going. I think it is a crawl rather than a run, or more of a waddle. :-)

                        We ate at L's a few weeks ago, and the food and service were great.

              2. L's now has their liquor licence...saw it on their FaceBook page.
