Refreshing twist on traditional Chinese, Szechuan and Thai Cuisine!
Ricky Yiu came to Canada from his native Hong Kong at 19 years old. Despite the challenges and vast cultural differences Ricky immediately loved his new country.
“I love Canada,” he said. “It is so peaceful and the people are so friendly.”
He worked in Toronto-area restaurants; both in the kitchen and front of house for 10 years with the goal to one day operate his own business. Five weeks ago, Ricky along with his wife Gigi, saw their dream become reality when they opened Amazing Chinese & Thai Cuisine at 676 Adelaide Street in Woodstock.
The previous owners were wanting to retire and when Ricky saw the restaurant he liked it immediately.
“I liked the small, bistro style and the space had been totally renovated within the past two years. It feels amazing so we kept the name.”
The décor is colourful, fresh and clean. It welcomes you to an amazing culinary experience.
Ricky downsized the menu adding Thai and Szechuan specialties alongside traditional Chinese fare. Everything is homemade, MSG-free and prepared with 100% vegetable oil.
House favourites include Pad Thai, Golden Curry Chicken and what is becoming one of Amazing’s most requested appetizers: Cheese Temptation stuffed with fresh cheese and vegetables. There is a wide variety of Combination Dinners for One and Special Family Dinners. Dine-In patrons receive the deliciously addictive Wonton Chips to share and for Pick up Orders over $40.00 receive a complimentary Garden Salad or Crispy Wontons.
Ricky and Gigi are new to Woodstock but have been receiving the Friendly City welcome.
“We really like Woodstock,” said Ricky. “It is very family-oriented and friendly. Our customers are positive, outgoing and we hope they feel like family when they come here.”
