A great place for a fairly quick lunch...not the place to sit back and spend the evening, but the food is fine.

Great food, fun atmosphere and wonderful staff all made up for the fact that my burger cost nearly $40 dollars, add a cold one and a tip and you're leaving with one of North America's priciest burger & beer special! But again, considering where you are and that everything needs to be flown in from civilization, a worthwhile stop for... More

This place should be shut down, but it keeps going and going with the only place in Iqaluit to eat Chinese food. The place is falling apart and dirty (chairs duct-taped seats!) so you take your chances but the food is good!

This is also very good restaurant which serves a large number of Chinese cuisine and other southern delicacies. It provides many quiet gatherings and bring along guess and friends, and families alike. Very good restaurants to eat. There are buffets available which is very good.

The War Wonton is usually pretty good. Indeed it does need a total renovation. It's a staple in the community. Not clear how sanitary it is but we still eat there.

ALthough the hotel is closed for a couple of years the restaurant is still open to the public. There are a couple of house specials - for q uick bite try a Taxi Driver with french fries - for something more subtantial try Wonton soup with barbqued pork! Delicious

The Navigator in should be torn down. The floors are dangerous. The tables are on slants and even the chairs. It is an awful place to go. If you want the Chinese food... take out.

The whole building is scheduled to be demolished soon and thank goodness because the floor is not level and the place needs more than renovation, But the owners have plans for a more decent restaurant and I hope they succeed as I have had some decent Chinese food here in the past and Iqaluit needs a Chinese restaurant.

What can you say? It is a restaurant if you want average food at an above average place keeping in mind that your in Iqaluit. The look inside is one of desperation. It does not look like it's been cleaned or renovated from day one. It's just ok...
