I have lived in Oceanside for over 6 years and I am still trying to find decent, authentic flavoured Chinese food as this is not it. I do have to agree with JH Brewer's review that Chinese restaurants in the area do cater to a senior's palate which equates to boring, deep fried, sweet sauces, and don't like exotic flavours....

Small outdated Restaurant outside of Qualicum but the food was fantastic. We tried several dishes, Noodles with house sauce,beef and onion with ginger,s/s chicken balls, crispy pork and the crispy spiced wings. The Noodles were by far the best but all was good. If you happen to be around Qualicum then stop in for some great food at standard or... More

I'm a relative newcomer to this area and almost despaired of finding decent Chinese food until I discovered Westhill Restaurant. I only picked up one of their menus while camping at the Coombs Country Campground (another local gem). Wonton soup and egg foo yung are 2 of my favourites and I wasn't disappointed, in fact, I think the egg foo... More

After reading some more reviews (elsewhere) and the owners' advertising, we expected an interesting fusion of chinese, malaysian, thai and other south asian cuisines. But the menu (and almost all the food) is pure Cantonese and rather boring, though competently prepared. We commented on this as we left; the chef (a Thai lady) explained that they had to "dumb down"... More

Great food, great price at this highway-side Chinese restaurant. We loved the Wor Wonton soup that had many extras. This place has somewhat limited availability as it is only open from 4-9pm four days a week (Thurs - Sun).

The food here is good, I would describe it as truly unique. But they run this restaurant ridiculously for the hours/days of operation and furthermore they take longwinded, inordinately lengthy leaves of absence which leaves their customers utterly in the lurch. This is so often the case, that I have now totally given up on this restaurant all together. Don't... More

A quiet little Chinese restaurant beside Hwy 4 and only open over the weekend. It is small but comfortable. Food was excellent and unique ...very different presentation than most places. Likely no MSG...very tasty....good portions....lots of extras. Good for small groups.

Over the years we've been to the Westhill a number of times, and last weekend decided to go again. Nothing has changed, it's still spotless, the service is excellent, the food excellent plus, and the prices are really good! The food is always lovely and hot, very tasty and as much as a normal person needs. In fact I ordered... More

We hit this place on Grey Cup night. We weren't certain if it was open or not; it was dark and no one else was there. We were just about to turn around when a woman popped out andsaid to come in. Seems no one was out tonight due to the game on TV and we were the only people... More
