This simple family style diner restaurant has long been a favourite for many years. I always make a point to drop in when travelling between Victoria and the Comox Valley. A few highlights include friendly personable staff, daily soups made from scratch, quick efficient customer...service, and traditional family style meals served piping hot. It’s gets busy at peak times but, you won’t be disappointed.More

Great diner food, but excellent other dishes. Friendly service/atmosphere. Have been for lunch on numerous occasions and have never been disappointed. Reasonably priced breakfasts. Nice oyster burger & snrs selections.

Family styled diner right out of the 60s. Decor is dated. The menu is extensive. The service was quick and friendly, the place was clean, and the prices were good. The food was not fabulous, but the portion was enough, and it was good home...cooked style cooking. Many customers were coming in to pick up orders and the parking lot was full, always a positive sign for a restaurant.More

The curried chicken is always the best. 0.5 beer and an extra curry sauce. Nice piece of garlic toast. The ambiance could use a bit of attention but the food is great. Period.

We were heading north on a Monday and wanted a decent lunch. Found it here. I have driven by many times and noticed the parking lot often has cars. Now I know why. Good lunch, excellent efficient service.

Curried chicken was dry and over cooked. Curry combo with tasteless prawns that were mostly batter. Veal cutlets were burnt and dry. Very little sauce on the curry dishes and at $19.50 they wanted another $2.25 for more sauce. Told the server who was apologetic...but did nothing about it. Portions have gotten smaller over time and the prices have increased substantially. Owners do not care at all.More

Would have gone for breakfast but note not open till 9...am. I would recommend except if you want a drinkMore

I decided to try to the almond chicken as my first choice wasn't available. This was by far the worst meal I have been served. The dried up heavily deep friend chicken was served on a bed of dry rice with pieces of almond on...top. No flavor, no taste, nothing on the rice-it was dry too.. this is the same dish they serve with curry so I guess the curry covers this up -- but this plain dish should be forgotten. I've given three stars as I think a lot of the menu is good.More

Great traditional diner food. Easy access from highway. My husband had the traditional 2 egg and bacon breakfast. I had darn good Eggs Benedict. Noticeable coVid safety procedures in place.

After more than 50 years of dining on curried chicken, both at Mom's Restaurant and the Haida Way, sadly, I will no longer eat here. Yesterday, I stopped for curried chicken on my way home. The curry sauce was flat, almost tasteless, consisting of garlic,...curry powder, and strangely, bacon grease. I don't believe it was chicken, but baked, sliced turkey that became too dry with the additional cooking. None of the wonderful recipe I am used to. Goodbye.More
