Description: This is a great little restaurant. It's exactly the kind of "locally know favourite" that wise Trip Advisor travellers are looking for. It's very reasonably priced and consistently good.

Foo is exactly the kind of place you hope to find on a visit to Victoria. The Carmel Chicken is amazing. The establishement is insanely small - perhaps only 10 chairs lining the window and kitchen. You can watch the young chefs concoct their fabulous Asian-fusion plates. Lots of sizzle, lots of flames, lots of flavor. Yes... I would absolutely come back. Only problem: very very limited seating. Might want to be prepared to order take out, and if a seat is available, then think of it as a nice bonus.

Some folks have said this place is overrated. Not sure how a hole-in-the-wall establishment can be overrated. Cheesecake Factory and Spaghetti Warehouse are overrated. Foo is very underrated, by definition of its teensy size. You really have to scour over Victoria's many small restaurants, and reviews, to even consider a visit to Foo. And for those that come, they will likely not be disappointed.

The food here is perfectly cooked and loaded with flavour. Butter chicken seems to be a local favourite butI opted for the octopus sald. Unbelievably tender and succulent. Not the least bit rubbery or overcooked. Braised to perfection.

Don't park in the lot adjacent to the restaurant. Use the street.

I have been here several times and never disapointed. The best thing on the menu is the caramel chicken. The pad thai is also very good....a departure from traditional pad thai, but good in its own right. Great place for takeout in Victoria! Grade: A

The food is OK, mostly noodles, a bit over priced. Foo is advertised as "Street Food" but the prices are not street food prices.

Foo Food - Asian Street Food - says it all - amazing street food - always busy - food cooked fresh chow mein brilliant. The food speaks for itself. There is outdoor seating adjacent to the building but view is road or car park but if you want good quality food at a very reasonable price then this is the place. Takes about 10 minutes to walk from the downtown bus station.
