“Delicious Noodles”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 5, 2013

We stumbled upon this place jetlagged after a flight from London. The quality of the food is the best Chinese I have tasted. We came back 2 days later for more. It was the best food we had in Vancouver - and really good value too. and has been remarked by others, you can watch them prepare your dishes while you enjoy one of the excellent local beers on the menu. The waitress was lovely too.

“You won't believe the guy making noodles!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 27, 2013

The noodle making is a show in itself. Be sure to get a seat so you can watch the open kitchen, which is spotless. The fried green pea sprouts with garlic were excellent as were the noodle dishes. Even the bathroom was spotless. Small restaurant but busy and efficient.

“Good Food, Fun Show”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 5, 2013

It's fun to watch the noodles being made fresh and to watch the cooks right in front of your table. The food is excellent and the small but extremely busy place is frequented by locals, which tells you it is good. We shared the Lemon Chicken in Peanut Sauce and the noodles with Lamb Shank, both were delicious. I also had the Chrysanthemum tea. In a city of very expensive restaurants this was a treat of great food for a reasonable price of $24 for 2 people including tip.

“Hidden gem”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 22, 2013

Denman Street is so full of restaurants it would be easy to miss this narrow, unobtrusive, place but it’s definitely worth looking out for. Unfortunately, I only came across it on my last night. Simply delicious noodles and spring rolls, that you can see being made to order. Ridiculously cheap too. One of the best meals on the trip. Only wish I could have gone back for more.
