I always visit this place every time I am in Vancouver. From the outside it doesn't look special, not fancy. However, you would surprise on how many customers inside. The place is divided in two parts, the bakery in the front and the restaurant in...More

Walking around china town, saw a crowd. Got a few bakery type items to go. Not expensive and very good. Ate the pastries the next morning for breakfast and they were still good. Went well with hotel coffee.

A trip to Chinatown is never complete without a visit to New Town! Be prepared to wait in line as the lineup is sometimes out the door. Don't forget to pick a number or you won't be served. Service is generally fast but customer service...More

Stumbled upon this tiny unpretentious spot. Very very busy but lucked out and got seating for my husband and I. Terrific menu and wanted to try so many things. Food served very quickly, hot and very tastey. Staff friendly and patient with tourists. Will return.

Lucky for me I had a recommendation to New Town. It's not just for their bakery, but don't miss the apple tarts! The chicken mushroom soup and pork spring rolls with plum sauce made a great lunch on a rainy Vancouver day.

With the recent exodus of massive new building
projects hitting the neighbourhood, Chinatown; which
has always been one of the city's most vibrant areas;
is even more buzzing and buoyant than ever before.
Playing host to some of the city's best pan-Asian
cuisine, from fusion food to traditional home-cooking,
Chinatown has remained faithful to its roots as a
space which clambers with shop signs and welcomes
