How hard is it to find a good Chinese restaurant? I'm fussing quite hard as I have ate at a few in Victoria and they are all disgusting. This place, yes the same. Ordered a combo plate - with BBQ pork rice, which had chunks of dried pork - the sweet and sour pork, was old, cold and gross. The... More

I've eaten here several times and always enjoyed the food, but while I am always open to explore a menu, my dining mates have always insisted on the ease of selecting one of the pre-set menu options. Imagine my relief to finally eat with someone who absolutely rejected those choices. Instead we each ordered a dish for the table, and... More

Lunch buffet variety is quite good. Food is tasty, but wish it was less greasy and free of MSG. Service is very friendly. Price is reasonable.

Excellent service, the food was a tad greasy for me, but still yummy.Lunch is the buffet. There was no chicken at all. Mostly pork. Egg rolls were good. I love the cubed jelly.

Tired of the all-Cantonese Chinese restaurant with only a couple of other choices? Here is a bright super-clean excellent near-authentic Chinese restaurant in Esquimault (adjacent to Victoria). The staff have service perfected -- attentive and helpful and nice and funny without that hovering feeling. The first part of the menu is Chinese with English subtitles; the second part is English...

Family went there for lunch on Chinese New Year's Day. I was really disappointed in the place. I had gone there for dinner (menu only) so this was the first time with the buffet. There was little variety, mostly fried and greasy. Did not appear to have gone to any effort to make the day special. Most of the food... More

I love this place, It is close to work, the food is always good, and most days it is over the top for variety and flavor. I am not listing everything on the menu, but I have to point out some of the highlights. I particularly like the Deep fried white fish (Basa) and the prawns when they have them,... More

The food is pretty good with some interesting choices, getting a waitresses attention after you have been seated unless you ordered alcohol seems futile.

I have stopped by Raymond's many times and by and large the food is consistently "fairly good." There are usually a good assortment of foods and on the weekends they bring out the good seafoods. I really like the squid. My problem is not with the food it is with the ambiance, or should I say the lack of ambience.... More
