Very good for a strip-mall Chinese food cafe. Eat-in and take out. Fast service. Do wish they had Mu-shu on the menu. Serves beer.

I have been here three times in the past 4-6 weeks. The fresh food keeps bringing me back.....but the service is horrible. All three times the servers have borderline ignored us. They take the order and that is about it, no follow up service. They are also not friendly or engaging at all. The food is good, like I said,... More

We really like the extensive menu at Mar's as the choices treat a variety of tastes - from light to heavy. The Mar's Deluxe Fried Rice is a hit with even picky eaters. The portions are generous so it is easy to split meals for a family. The Kung Pao Chicken is spicy, but more flavorful than hot.

We have been going to this local little Chinese restaurant for over ten years now and it still has some of the best tasting Chinese food in town. Most of the time we have takeout, but occasionally we dine in. The service is quick and friendly.Look for the daily specials written on a blackboard located in the front just as... More

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...
