Windsor

Chinee Villa

Back in February of this year, I had a post about the Mai-Mai. The owners of the Mai-Mai it was discovered were also the owners of the east side’s Chinee Villa. A few weeks ago, I was out for lunch, and pull into the plaza next to the old Chinee Villa. The building is still standing with it’s lettering on the facade, but it’s been closed for a while. This question goes out to the east-sider’s on here, when did the Chinee Villa close?

I noticed that two businesses in the neigbouring plaza, like vultures, have scavenged the Chinee Villa sign for their own purposes.

Anyone with any memories of the place? On the Mai-Mai post, Scott Hughes asked a good question, what is this City’s oldest Chinese Restaurant?
