Best Congee! And other Chinese favorites

This is my go-to spot for really good congee. I also find it hard to decide what to order when I go here because they have so many really good menu options. The BBQ duck and Peking duck is excellent. It's great to bring a bunch of people to this unassuming restaurant and order many items to... read more

What a busy place and the food speaks for the numbers here. You have to come here if you want value and taste together. The place is packed. Totally awesome.

We were staying overnight at the Best Western Uptown, and asked for a "Chinese" restaurant. One of the staff said they had lunch there. We walked the 3 blocks & had a quality meal at a reasonable price. Old style Café. Good food, fair service.

The food was decent, however the service was not good at all and the waitstaff were not very friendly or attentive. It was like pulling teeth just to get water or condiments for the food.

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

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. For fast... 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!

Neighborhood Profile
South Main
South Main, or SoMa, is a neighbourhood in upswing. Inhabited by young humanitarian professionals in converted lofts and studio apartments, what was once an industrial centre is now a wellspring of vintage and eco fashion shops, contemporary sawdust-floor galleries, craft beer joints, and basement acting studios. All set to an Art Deco background with a strong blue collar sensibility underpinning each new pop-up and foodie trend, SoMa is on the rise.
