Walked in off the street and checked to see if they had beef with black bean sauce. They had it with chicken and they had it with shrimp but they didn't have it with beef. I asked the waitress if they could make it for me and they were quite accommodating. You can find beef with black bean sauce at... More

I had heard good things about Mars and finally decided to try it. The portions were indeed large, as others have commented, but pretty flavorless. Pan fried noodles were stuck together and had no spice on them at all - just oily. We asked for extra spicy on our other 2 meals, but either she did not hear, or they... More

This is actually the second restaurant my wife and I visited with this name in Vancouver. The food is excellent... very decent size portions and very nice people serving for a reasonable price. I really liked the atmosphere of this location which was small but nice looking. The booths are very comfortable. This will be on my list of restaurants... More

We thought we ordered here but in error ordered food at a different location. When we picked up our food the lady gave us a bag said it was our order, collected our money and sent us on our way.... When we got home and opened our bag, obviously it wasn't correct. We called to complain and was informed our... More

I've been coming here for years and the quality is still there. You get fresh, big portions of flavorful Chinese for very reasonable prices. The staff, especially the waitresses are very nice and helpful. Service is good, the restaurant is clean, prices are perfect and you get both quality/quantity with every dish. Great place for lunch breaks or family dinners!

We started ordering takeout from Mars back in 2000 and even with a change of ownership/management, it is still our first choice for Chinese. It has been said that "if you want good chinese food, go were Chinese-Americans eat". One of my friends has changed that to, "if you want good Chinese food, go where fat white people eat". If...

This used to be one of our favorite restaurants but it appears they have changed ownership. Food was "ok" but service was horrible. Found a hair in our food and tried to be discreet only to have the waitress raise her voice and say, "your hair, not our hair". The owner came over and tried to quiet her but offered... More

It's great...don't be thrown off by the strip mall location.....ALL of Vancouver seems to be housed in a strip mall layout. The food is high quality, tasty, fair priced and really clean clean clean. This is good stuff. We love the takeout, too....super fast!

Consistently good Chinese food. Every time I go there it's good. The menu is slightly limited but if you ask about something that isn't there they will probably make it for you. Blazin' fast service. Go in, step to the counter tell them what you want and in 5 to 10 minutes you're out the door with HOT food. There... More
