I stopped in for a quick bite here. I come here at least twice a month. Their specialty is congeeut they also do BBQ and seafood. This place as survived among some of the old noodle and BBQ places that didn't. They take cash only and parking is limited. It is located on a major bus route though... read more

Vancouver has been known as the cantonese food mecca of North America ( those in Toronto and New York may argue) Naturally, I sought the recommendation of my friends in Vancouver on this century old tradition of congee and won ton soup( actually won ton and noodles) My friend circle spanned different generations and income levels, they do share their...

I've been on a bit of a noodle house jag recently, getting a feel for what is a very strong sub-specialty among Asian restaurants in Vancouver. This one is among the best. Located at the edge of Mt. Pleasant, on several bus routes, it has tons of walk-by clientele, and has been there long enough to have a strong following.... More

Great congee and great noodles. It tastes like a high-quality Hong Kong family restaurant and I don't think you can miss on the food here. The only obvious bad thing is that it's very out of the way for travelers to eat at. You can get off at Joyce Station and walk south for about 10 minutes but there isn't... More

I had a take out of bbq duck and honestly think about 70% of it was bone - maybe just an unfortunate cut but I would expect better from a restaurant with decent reviews. I won't be back

This is a local favourite whether it be for breakfast, lunch or dinner. Their congee, ox tribe and roast duck are the best. I have a few friend's who had their vehicles scratched while using their parking lot at the back so I prefer to stick mine in a parking meter. Cash only establishment!

I pass by this restaurant every day and it's always busy; so yesterday we decided to give it a try. We tried the BBQ duck with noodle and Eggplant with preserved fish and shredded pork hotpot; and both were really really good. I will definitely be back to try different things. Please be advised that this restaurant only accept cash... More

I have not been to Congee Noodle House in years, but somehow, my memory of it was a little skewed. I thought it was going to be smoky, hot and packed to the brim. It was none of those. The place has high ceilings, an A/C system that works (so fantastic in the summer), and lots of room for patrons.... More

I've been coming here for years and while the food is generally good, the service and attitude of the servers and cashiers have deteriorated over time. I recently ordered take out and when I went to pay the woman at the cashier barely acknowledged me. Granted she was on the phone with customers but there was no smile or even... More

This is our go-to cheap and easy meal. We always order the same thing... the Hong Kong style minced beef congee and it never disappoints. I'm always surprised how long it stays hot for when we get it to-go. You can leave it out of the fridge for hours and it still maintains a lot of the heat! If you... More
