This place gets very busy and there was a queue for lunch. Congee was thick and tasty. Noodles were HongKong style thin egg noodles and wontons were big with prawns. Would recommend this place.

This is an authentic Congee restaurant. The Sampan congee is so filled with goodies and worth trying. It's a pity the roast pork and char siew were cut too thick - but maybe that's what their customers like. The soya chicken was very succulent. After a week's fine dining on a cruise ship, this Congee breakfast was most welcomed and... More

This is a very unusual restaurant that serves noodle, congee, barbecue duck and pork, common fried Chinese dishes as well as fresh seafood such as crabs, lobsters, fish, prawns and clams (picked live from tanks). It opens very early in the morning till after midnight, and is always crowded (because the cooking is so good!!!) We come here regularly. --... More

I've been going to Congee Noodle House for over a decade, I go because the food is excellent Cantonese style food and a good price and close to home. Their bbq pork is always excellent and their congee is very good. I love the deep fried white minnow which you have to ask for during the day because it's only... More

What a busy place and the food speaks for the numbers here. You have to come here if you want value and taste together. The place is packed. Totally awesome.

This is my go-to spot for really good congee. I also find it hard to decide what to order when I go here because they have so many really good menu options. The BBQ duck and Peking duck is excellent. It's great to bring a bunch of people to this unassuming restaurant and order many items to share. The Budha... More

We were staying overnight at the Best Western Uptown, and asked for a "Chinese" restaurant. One of the staff said they had lunch there. We walked the 3 blocks & had a quality meal at a reasonable price. Old style Café. Good food, fair service.

The food was decent, however the service was not good at all and the waitstaff were not very friendly or attentive. It was like pulling teeth just to get water or condiments for the food.

Neighborhood Profile
South Main
South Main, or SoMa, is a neighbourhood in upswing. Inhabited by young humanitarian professionals in converted lofts and studio apartments, what was once an industrial centre is now a wellspring of vintage and eco fashion shops, contemporary sawdust-floor galleries, craft beer joints, and basement acting studios. All set to an Art Deco background with a strong blue collar sensibility underpinning each new pop-up and foodie trend, SoMa is on the rise.
