We ordered online at 3 o’clock for food to be delivered for six o’clock. The delivery was 35 minutes late. The food was not that tasty and was quite greasy. The chicken was tough and food quite salty, not very appetizing. Not a good Valentines...dinner. When I checked the transaction receipt I noticed that they charged me fifteen cents for the paper bag the food came in. How cheap is that? The delivery guy laughed when I asked him why he was so late with the delivery and he said they were quite busy. I actually phoned to find out why the delivery was so late. No apologies from the driver either.More

I don't think I've ever bothered to write a restaurant review on Tripadvisor. I most certainly have never styled my dinner to take a photo to share. However we were so impressed tonight with our New Year's Day dinner (delivery) that we felt we needed...to pay it forward for these guys. I've eaten so much bad Chinese and Chinese/American that my expectations are pretty low, but it's tradition for us to order it NYD. My son, a total foodie, had nothing at all negative to say. He pointed out that everything was properly seasoned and crisp. That they've obviously cleaned their fryer. The sauces are not just sugary liquid, but rather properly made with sour and tangy notes. That's a wow. The best part was that it all tasted like real actual food. Not homogeneous muck. Not oily AT ALL and left room for us to add soy sauce if wanted, not salty. Cooked literally to perfection, which I might even expect for in house dining, but for delivery? Fantastic. The AMOUNT of breaded chicken was double what we have had from other places, and not even close to soggy. And all of this on what I'm sure is a crazy busy night for them. 6/5 stars.More

Lum's recently returned to Dine-In and we were again able to enjoy our favorite Chinese food with friends. The prices have increased a little but the food is still worth it. Service always comes with a smile and we really feel valued.

I ordered almond chicken and a vegetable fried rice for delivery. I'm sorry to say this was the worst food I have ever eaten - truly. The chicken had hardly any meat but was covered in batter and deep fried; it was so oily. The...fried rice had no taste with a few pieces of broccoli thrown in. I threw the food out.More

We've tried Lum's twice now. It is simple, unpretentious Chinese Canadian food that is reasonably price. We'd definitely recommend it as a local Chinese restaurant.

We're travelling and had some complications with our address, but the staff at Lum's went above and beyond to find us. The food was great - tasty and good portions. We would definitely order from Lum's again.

My best experience with Chinese food outside of Metro Vancouver (yeah, we're kind of snobbish about Asian food with so many great choices). But this place has given me another reason to visit Victoria. It's true that most of the food is somewhat westernized, but...it's still very flavourful without that sense of things tasting of the same sauces one can get. If you want to experiment further, ask for some items off the "secret" Chinese menu. We had salt fish rice, salt & pepper squid, and tofu & seafood hotpot. All were excellent and all the dishes were a good value. It's a tiny place, with just around eight tables, something to keep in mind if you're in a big group.More

My family loves this restaurant. I'm vegan, and I was very limited with what I could order here. I didn't particularly think it was great, but there is a lot of food for the money.

After exploring portions of the West Coast Trail, Lum's made for a welcoming meal. The menu is varied with staples you would expect. It's no-frills in a good way with a focus on fresh ingredients and prepared according to family recipes that make Lum's a...place to seek for good eats.More

This small restaurant is in our neighbourhood and we go there when we feel like wonton soup and other Chinese dishes. The food is always good, service is also good and we always leave very satisfied.
