Alas, it's really just food court food. Stuff tends to get gummy and stale in the warmers as the afternoon wears on, and the place is simple, cafeteria style.
Good things about it include the fact that it's fast and relatively inexpensive. Staleness isn't an issue during the lunch rush, either.
A Go Platter is probably the best deal. You pick a type of noodle dish, a meat dish and a veg dish, and get the lot for about $7 including tax. And yes, they do allow substitutions. I tend to ask for a couple of Har Gow (shrimp dim sum dumplings) instead of veg. My mother would cry at the lack of nutrients.
Another good tip about this Go location is that they will let you order off the main Spring Rolls menu. You'll have to wait to be served, but this is a good way to get take out.
Also, there is plenty of seating, but the caf style nature of the place means there's no reason to tip and almost no waiting. And because more people use the main location, it's not hard to get a seat. (There's also an extra seating area upstairs that tends to be relatively deserted.)
All in all, while the food isn't really anything special, this is a good place for a fast lunch on Yonge. Easier, cheaper and simpler than the regular Spring Rolls in terms of trappings, but the same in terms of taste.
