Typical Chinese Food for Canadians

Decent choice and preparation of Chinese Food. Best place in Tsawwassen for Chinese Food. I think they try pretty hard, but the décor is lacking .... I think the ownership is serving "food" not a dining experience. Needs a makeover but the food is typical Canadian style Chinese Food ( about average... read more

Ocean Palace has a beautiful ambiance with linen tablecloths and is very clean. The hot and sour soup we had was good. The tofu with mixed vegetables was good, too, although with a heavy gravy. The seafood dish was not good as it was full of sugar and too sweet to eat. We mixed it with the salty gravy from... More

First time that we visited this restaurant and we were very disappointed. The restaurant was busy, but not full. We waited 20 minutes for the waiter to take our order, very frustrating, and then another 15 minutes to get our dishes. Food was average, nothing special and definitely not worth the wait. We will not be back.

Really excellent Chinese. The lemon chicken and egg plant dishes were exceptional - in Particular since I'm not usually a fan of eggplant or sweeter chicken recipes

They were not busy, only a few tables occupied. Service was very slow. 15 minutes to get order taken, another 40 minutes to get food. they give priority to phone in orders, even called in after you are there! Attitude of servers was not pleasant. Good food quality!

I'll start with the ''great's'': The food is pretty awesome, especially compared to the other low-rated ''Best Garden'' restaurant in town. Depending on what you get, we always love the chow meins, as they'll full of flavour & not too greasy. The chop suey's are also real nice. Also love the prawn dishes :) Nice quaint little atmostphere if you're... More

Never going back. The wait staff is rude and slow. The food is not as good as it used to be and takes too long.

If you want super cheap Chinese - this isn't your place. If you want crisp nice veggies and delicious meats, come on down. Pretty restaurant, linen tablecloths but when we were there, The owner was complaining about the kids playing soccer in the field next door among other topics. Get your food to go.

We visited early on a Friday night and got a seat before the crowds arrived. We had heard about this restaurant but had not visited previously. It is clean with tablecloths and decent china. The male waiter was barely civil whisking the little bowls away without even asking if we wanted to use them or not. The young woman delivered... More
