Getting into Castlegar after 9:30 it was one of the only places open. Ordered the chinese dinner for 2. It was hot and pretty good. Waitress was friendly and provided great service always coming by to fill water and coffee and asking if we need anything.

This place is ok but nothing spectacular. My husband was half done eating before my food came out and despite being kind of slow when we went the wait staff wasn't quick to offer refills on our drinks or to see if we needed anything. I don't think we will be back again.

Slow service has always been a constant. Then there is the sorry we know you just sat at the door and looked at our specials just to be told they are over. Like Hello...customer service, and then the entire staff is eating or gourging themselves at a regular table for all to see. These people need a lesson in service... More

After a bad experience a year ago, decided to try Chopsticks again. Result- Service terribly slow, no cutlery with the meal and AGAIN the appetizer shows up at the table at the same time as the bill. Really,,,I think they concentrate on the TAKE-OUT orders and ignore the tables. The family seated beside us had the same service. The father... More

Chopsticks food is plain and overpriced. Nothing special here just average food. The waitress's work hard though and service is always good

After being seated at an awful table with slightly better ones available (there aren't any 'good' tables with the way everything is crammed in there), and waiting 5+ minutes without even an acknowledgement that someone would be with us shortly, we'd had enough and walked out. Tired of overpriced, mediocre food in a loud restaurant. We went and tried Warren's... More

This restaurant is always a mystery to me as to why it seems to remain busy? I have given it an honest try for a local craving good hot Chinese food, and sushi. This last time we tried a tuna roll to start, it had a long black hair through out! All our 3 Chinese dishes had a tiny amount... More

We were 3. Our waitress was not very knowledgeable about the food served. My daughter had some Spring Rolls to start, 2 shrimp and 1 veg, all deep fried and very dry. Served on 2 plates ! with a sachet of, wait for it, plum sauce. My wife had a beef dish, which looked good but was not very tasty... More

When I moved to the Kootenays and was craving sushi, people kept directing me to Chopsticks, claiming that it was the best in the area. No, no, no! Super westernized "Chinese food"-- which means everything is deep fried & way too sweet. I've honestly had better in a mall food court. The sushi was the nail in the coffin for... More
