Although the dishes that I had were actually really tastey the service however was far from being good. One waitress was a real sour puss and acted like she was very put upon having to serve us. While I said that the dishes I ordered...More

I just moved to Nanaimo from Vancouver. As you might imagine living in Vancouver I used to have access to some of the most amazing Chinese (and other) take out. But since moving here and checking out a few places, Da Tang has been the...More

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

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.
