Yes, a couple of times a month I pick up supper there for the family. Last time was a couple of weeks ago. What info are you looking for?

Just wondering if they're still as good as they have been.

Yes, the food is still great! The only thing I noticed is they are busier. Which is great for them, just means longer waits at peak times for us! No big deal.

Use to like Wayne's but it was off last time I ate there..Another friend of mine found three BB's in his chicken chow mien not long ago...I find it a little disturbing that the front window is so dirty you can barely see out of it. Wouldn't take much to give it a cleaning, makes me wonder how dirty the rest of the place is if they can't even clean a window

How was it off and did your friend report the health violation?

Usually Wayne's is very fresh, vegetables seem to be crisper but last time I was there the food just didn't seem as hot or fresh as usual..Half my rice was hard and cold, just didn't live up to the standard I had gotten use to. Might have just hit them at a bad moment..My friend didn't report it as far as I know, wasn't really a friend as much as a coworker..young guy who spit them out and kept eating but I saw them and they definitely were BB's, no clue how they would have got there? Maybe out of some kind of processing machine?

Looks like that chicken was used for target practice at some point in its life. :)

My family traditionally orders from the Canton on Boxing Day. For whatever reason, it wasn't open this year so we got Wayne's instead. I wouldn't have known the difference if someone hadn't told me it was Wayne's.

I can remeber eating at a Cajun restaurant in Saint John, New Brunswick once and being as sick as you describe, but my wife, who ate what I did wasn't effected at all. It is impossible to know if it is food poisioning without samples and lab tests.

Be that as it may, you ate there, you got sick - your conclusion is understandable. I still can't eat cajun fritters.

Quality really dropped earlier in the year. Not sure what changed, but we haven't eaten there since Aprilor so. Thats a good thing by the sounds of it! Hopefully they can back on track because it used to be very good.

A Chinese food restaurant on St. Peter’s Road in Charlottetown was ordered in July to clean up its act.
Environmental health inspectors issued a health order to Wayne’s Chinese Takeout on July 4 at 73 St. Peter’s Road for eight violations of the provincial regulations.
It was cited for failure to have screen doors and windows to keep out flies, insects, rodents and vermin, inadequate sanitation practices, failure to protect food from potential contamination, improper storage of potentially hazardous foods, not keeping food at the appropriate temperature and failure to ensure employees were washing their hands before handling food.
Environmental health inspectors have a graduated system when it comes to flagging violations — warning letters, notice of intent to issue a health order and a health order, the latter of which requires the business owner to take immediate action.
“The screen door was missing so the back door had been left open with no screen there and several windows had damaged screens so the issue would be for the potential entry of pests,’’ said Ryan Neale, senior environmental health officer. “There are also many soiled surfaces throughout the establishment — floors, shelving, walls, things like that that had obvious dirt that had not been cleaned.’’
In terms of storing utensils, Neale said “it was haphazard and unsanitary storage conditions in the kitchen.” He added that many items, refrigerated or dried foods, were not covered.
The day the inspectors were there, rice had been left out. Neale said it was thrown out after inspectors flagged the problem.
“If it’s unrefrigerated for more than a couple of hours then there’s potential for bacteria to grow and potentially produce toxins that could make a person sick.’’
In terms of food handling hygiene, Neale said inspectors observed staff handling and preparing food and “in this case they felt the hand washing was lacking.’’ Inspectors also observed food preparation staff weren’t wearing hats or hair nets.
Neale said they did not receive any reports of anyone getting ill and within two hours of the inspectors flagging the eight violations, the four most critical violations were remedied. The back door, for example, was closed to compensate for the lack of a screen door.
“Those are the ones that could potentially make a person sick. Those critical violations were addressed immediately.’’
A followup inspection was done July 10 and the remaining issues had been corrected.
“We actually had an unannounced official-type visit to provide the ability for the operator to ask questions and to further educate the operator on any issues,’’ Neale said, adding that environmental officers will be back to inspect Wayne’s Chinese Takeout at least once every four months.
Wayne Chen, the restaurant owner, declined to comment on this story.
