Had lunch here - somewhat quirky place in a heritage building, serves Canadian style Chinese food and reasonable Vietnamese food. service was friendly and the other patrons seemed to be locals. Usually a good sign.

All I can say is if you're a fan of terrible Chinese food, you'll love this place. The lemon chicken is bathed in lemon pie filling and the chicken balls are slathered in dark red sauce which could double as bloos in a horror movie.

Long time restaurant with reliable quality. Good for take out as well. Speciality Vietnamese prawn in sauce dishes. Very basic 1950's set up.

Best Asian cuisine in Ladysmith...I would never even step foot in the others. Family owned business, very authentic, great people. I have been going here since I was a little girl. Never disappoints!

I have always had good food at this restaurant. It is far from fancy but clean and the people are friendly.

The fried rice was not fried and had cold frozen vegetables mixed through. the pork was pathetic right out of the frozen bag it came in, not prepared on premises I suppose.... More

The Wigwam serves, Vietnamese, Chinese and N. American food and on the weekends Thur, through Sunday they serve a lovely buffet. We find that their Wonton Soup is the best, most flavorful we have ever eaten. The very best is the Wonton with Noodles and vegetables. Yum. The buffet can be hit or miss, but we've found the food fresh,... More

This place was sooooo clean...we decided to try the buffet. Although not an overly large selection, the quality of the food was very good. Being a buffet ( and not busy), the food was not as fresh & hot as i would have liked. I will be back, but next time we'll use the menu. The buffet is $13.99. I'm... More
