We had a reservation which grew in size unexpectedly and the Da Tang happily accommodated our increased numbers. Service was awesome, food was spectacular. There was a lot of variety in the vegetable dishes and they were cooked to perfection. The sweet and sour was...More

I ordered "Diced Chicken with Peanut in Spicy Sauce" from the menu. Nowhere on that does it say that the dish is mainly diced onions. Not only that, but there was little evidence of peanuts. While there was a good portion of diced chicken, it...More

We went to a wedding in Nanaimo and they had brought in many different dishes from Da Tang! Every dish I tried was awesome, good quality and quantity! Everyone there thoroughly enjoyed it! Highly recommend them!

Looks like we finally discovered the best Chinese food in Nanaimo. The wonton soup and dinner for four was excellent. Great flavours. A little on the pricey side compared to other places but definitely worth the value. Will continue to patronize this gem.

Very good ginger beef and green beans. Definitely caters to westerners in that it's not too spicy. That being said we don't have many authentic options in Nanaimo so for standard "western" or "white people" Chinese food this place is the best in the city.

With a menu that ranges from authentic (shredded jellyfish) to the more usual fare (almond chicken, sweet and sour ribs, etc) there is something for everyone, no matter how adventurous you are feeling. I recommend the Mu Shu Pork, shrimp egg rolls and the lettuce...More
