“Good Chinese in downtown Vancouver”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 11, 2014 via mobile

Went for dinner before the Canucks game (the one in which they snatched defeat from the jaws of victory-- 7-4 loss to Islanders). Excellent service, prompt delivery of hot food. Decent portions. Not a high-end restaurant, but it's not trying to be. Quality of food was very satisfactory and reasonably priced. I'd go back.

“Why the "No MSG" is not on their menu”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 5, 2014

I am a Chinese and very disappointed that real Chinese thousand-year food culture and cooking-skill are ruined by Japanese-invented MSG!! Such a shame!

I found couple reviews of this restaurant without MSG, but I wonder why such a good selling point is not on their menu.

More doubt comes from item no. N28 Spicy Stir-Fried Chicken or Pork Rice Cake. In Chinese, this dish has a sauce called "老干妈" which I know for sure contains tons of MSG. My question is: do they make their own NON-MSG 老干妈? or it's the 老干妈 with MSG?

Hopefully some one from this restaurant can answer my question.

“Not going to be my go to takeout spot”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 12, 2014

Had takeout delivery. Started out promising, friendly girl taking the order and prompt friendly delivery. Unpacked my order and noticed they forgot to include the pop I ordered and paid for. Oh well, it happens. Started with my wonton soup, which was probably a good thing and pushed my rating from a 2 to a 3. The soup was really good. But then I moved on to my "crispy" ginger beef. Definitely not crispy, in fact sorta soggy and very breaded. So dissappointing because I love ginger beef. Couldn't eat most of it. That coupled with the missing pop, will have me going back to Yopo Cafe for Chinese takeout.

2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 29, 2013 via mobile

Food and services are good. Reasonable price in downtown Vancouver. Been a regular during the last year. But got food poison after lunch last Wednesday.

“Quality Asian meal at an economical price.”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 19, 2013

We shared a well prepared noodle dish and a beef and vegetable dish with drinks for under $30 before tip. Noodle dish that we selected was hot in two ways. Ingredients were fresh and the blend both tasty and filling. Unpretentious atmosphere a pleasant change from pricer Vancouver dining.
