The first 5 mins upon getting your order, that is when the meats tasted heavenly! Roast pork, duck, chicken and especially bbq pork - all breaks up so easily in your mouth. After that initial 5 minutes though, once food has turned ‘cold’, the meats...become harder to break. With the huge chunks of meats served, each bite becomes somewhat laborious. Same goes for the soup - really tasty initially but loses its wow after 5 minutes or so. By then you’d be starting on your mains and have to abandon the soup. Perhaps the meats should not be cut up into such huge chunks? That could help you eat more comfortably once the food is cold but you would miss out on the first 5 minutes when the huge chunks feels satisfying. I reached this restaurant at 5pm and saw a queue forming up. I went to queue but 10 minutes later, was told that queue was meant for takeaways (order to go). Fortunately there wasn’t a queue for the dine-in area so I could get a table as I walked in. Waited less than 10minutes for the order to arrive. Everything tasted good there - chicken, duck, roast pork, bbq pork, veg, soup and even the dark soy sauce (in a bottle) is a winner. Unfortunately, as I’ve mentioned earlier, past 5 minutes and when the food is cold, the magic isn’t there anymore. By then, I will say I’ve tasted better roast meats in other countries. Portion is quite large for an average Asian. Perhaps consider getting a plate with all the meats and then share with two persons? Of course, need to supplement with a plate of veg and maybe share a bowl of soup if possible. Of the meats, my favourite is the bbq pork. I can imagine some people preferring the duck and the chicken. The only nice part of the roast pork is the crispy crackly skin.More

This the BEST tasting BBQ you will find anywhere on this planet bar none. The service extremely quick and efficient. I travel often from Victoria, BC on Vancouver Island just for this experience. Do give this cuisine a try as you work through your bucket...list. Thank you Owners and keep up the good work! I hope to meet you folks one day.More

Very tasty, very quick, and affordable. We were looking for something exactly like this, but the place we choose online, was not open for a few more hours. So we went with the next closest place that was open. We were so lucky to have...found it, and will make it a point to stop in on each subsequent visit to Vancouver. Tasty big portions. Very simple, but exactly the taste you are craving. This is a cash only place, fyi.More

I can't believe how the taste of their barbecue duck has deteriorated. I used to love eating their bbq duck and roast pork. I bought a whole one last week and had it chopped up. To my disappointment, it didn't taste as good as before....The sauce that came with it was so salty. Price has gone up and the taste had gone downhill. I don't understand why it's still popular as can be. The owner should check this out as I am not the only one that's finding the taste isn't as good as before. Also, the sauce is now awful, too salty. I will have to start looking for another barbecue place where I can get better roasted duck and roast pork.More

I ordered take out food last week and I noticed that the person handling and cutting the meats were not wearing gloves. He was touching the meats with his bare hands. That was not safe handling of food, particularly in this environment of Covid 19...pandemic!More

I'd come back to Vancouver just to eat here! We ate dinner around 7pm, so most things were already sold out. We got what was left: the cha siu and the soy sauce chicken over rice. Both preparations were incredibly juicy and tender! The salty...ginger sauce on the chicken was the perfect accompaniment and I wish there was more. Even the rice was good. If you're feeling guilty about all the protein and carbs, there was one broccoli garnish to add a little green color and fiber. Note that they take US dollars if you're lazy like us and don't exchange money, though it's at a lower exchange rate when they give you back change (fair enough and well worth it!).More

Amazing spot under the Superstore in Richmond. All the food looks and tastes fresh! I highly recommend checking this place out, always go early as there is always a line. Their service is fast, so lines do move quick in the take out line. They...got a great assembly line so even with a line to the door it isn't the worst waiting for take out. I got the BBQ Duck and Roast Pork on rice. It's really good and I can't wait to come have it again! Heads up, this place is Cash Only!More

This little place is usually packed and has a line going out the door. They sell various different BBQ Chinese meat products. BBQ chicken pork and other things. It is served up fast and not very expensive. The staff was very helpful and calling me...a taxi and hailing it down what it arrived. One caveat, this place only accepts Canadian cash. I did not have any with me as I was planning on using your credit card and they would not accept my American Cash. They allow me with no collateral to walk up stairs to the store and get the cash out of the cash machine. Considering the busy neighborhood there were in I was really surprised that they were this trusting. This along with the taxi service I thought showed exemplary customer service. I would recommend this place highly to anyoneMore

The restaurant in carpark below the supermarket. Their sitting area was under renovation and only 6 seats were available in the restaurant. The food is very good but the floor of the restaurant is very slippery. The roast duck was exceptionally succelent.

Food is overrated; the char Siew is too dry. The service is bad especially the attitude of the waitress. She needs to learn to patiently explain to customers when there is a perceived queue cutting that she initiated. The place was recommended by a local...friend but it was disappointing. If not for the fact that I was there with my family and friends, I would have walked out if I were alone.More

First off this place serves up affine variety a chinese-style barbecued Meats. The roast duck, crispy roast pork and BBQ pork where all very tasty. I've been on the Southeast side from over brining but, hey, it's Chinese food. Two things that really put me...off about the place was the fact that the rice was overcooked and mushy. Simply inexcusable in a Chinese restaurant. The other was that the floor in the bathroom was so greasy I slipped and fell on my ass just trying to use the facility. It was so bad that I couldn't even stand still without my feet slipping apart. That too, is unacceptable. This would have garnered about a three star at best however the reason I'm giving it 4 stars is because the staff was absolutely wonderful. I pulled out my credit card to pay only to find out that they didn't accept credit cards. I said no problem I've got cash but it's American. They said that would be okay but they would give me a discounted exchange rate. Okay I thought until I reached in my wallet. I didn't have enough American cash to pay it either. All I had was a pocket full of Euros which they would not accept. They allowed me to walk up stairs to the bank machine what's chick about 30 minutes without leaving any kind of collateral and trusting me completely. I got back and paid and then one of the folks called me a taxi cab and waited on the street for it to arrive so I could get back to my hotel. I think this was going above and beyond. Another good thing was that it took less than three minutes to produce my order even though there was a line of at least 15 people. It seems, if you sit down and their restaurant they put your order at priority over the folks were looking for takeout. Just keep this in mind.More

Ordered a BBQ duck on rice and the duck not fully cooked. Complaint to the server and her replied was bbq duck are not supposed to be fully cooked. It's normally if you see blood! WTF!!! Will never go back again. BTW, the place is...actually very dirty, the floor tile is oily and slippery.

Great little hole in the wall place! The crispy pork was fantastic! What a find! The service was quick. The food was so tasty. No wonder there was a constant line of people ordering take out! Not a place to linger, though. Disposable dishes. Come...in, eat and leave. Great for a quick, tasty lunch on the go.More
