interesting place to eat

The only place in Tofino where you can enjoy a plate of chow mein and a big burger. My family and I found the place quite clean, with a really interesting cross section of customers -- from fishermen, tourists, first nations families and locals. Food was pretty good, and we got good value.

We live in Vancouver and this is the best Chinese food we've eaten. Everything tasted delicious and the portion sizes were really generous. They even catered to a fussy vegan in our group. Bravo!

Well when your hungover there's nothing better then getting some Gary's, C1 4 LIFE. It's fast, tasty, and you get almost two meals out of it. If your looking for a quick chinese food fix go here.

Gary's has become our first stop whenever we arrive in Tofino, after the long drive from Nanaimo...whether lunch or dinner, we always have leftovers for later in between our long walks on the beaches....midnight snack or brunch, you can't top Gary's for inexpensive and fab flavours!

My husband wandered arount Tofino looking for a reasonable place to eat dinner. And chose Garry's because of the variety and it was resonably priced. My husband had a beer and the salmon, he said it was the best he has ever eaten. I had chow mean and spring rolls, total cost with tip $40. Probably eat there again tonight.

We had a really tasty dinner Monday, March 30, in a little modest little restaurant tucked around a corner from a main street. The service was friendly and they offer reasonably priced Chinese dishes as well as other dishes like steak and chicken. My husband had a chicken burger (actual chicken breast) and fries. I ordered one of the Chinese... More

One of the cheapest places for us poor folks . Don't expect bread with your meal but you'll at least be full for under $20.

We had some pretty good Chinese Food here. Fast, hot and plenty of it. I had ginger beef, fried rice and prawns. My hubby enjoyed his sweet & sour pork, chop suey with rice. We will be eating here again before we head home.

Where do you eat dinner on a Monday in early January in Tofino? All the restaurant we wanted to go were closed. Gary's is small, on a back street and not the type of restaurant where you would expect to get anything other than very American Chinese Food. We got our order "to-go" and we're offered green tea while we... More

Customer service was awful from the moment we walked in the man was very rude to us and to a table behind us with 2 little girls and their dad. At our table of four barely any of us touched our plates as it was so gross. The rice was clearly burnt in the pot and when we brought up... More
