Fantastic Chinese BBQ. Crispy pork, soya chicken and greens - too much food for one person but too good to stop. Don't forget, cash only.

This restaurant is one of several restaurants located in the garage structure of the Real Canadian Superstore on No. 3 Road. Our group visited this place and got seated within 10 minutes (note: the crazy long line is for takeout; just go towards the door...and sign your name on the sheet for dine-in). The place is small and the seating is tight, so for larger groups it may not be the most comfortable. But the food makes up for the cramped quarters. Just make sure you know what you want to order, as everything afterwards happens blazingly fast: from the time your order is taken to the food arrival to the cleanup once you are done. Our group ordered several rice plates to share: piles of bbq roast pork, bbq pork (aka char-siu), soy sauce chicken, and roast duck. Surprisingly, the best item was the soy sauce chicken; it was cooked perfectly, very soft and tender, and very flavorful. The roast pork had the crispy skin, but the meat was a tad dry. The roast duck was a hit-and-miss, as some plates the roast duck was good and the skin was light and had the right amount of fat, while the other plates the roast duck was dry and the skin was dark and had little fat. This was a bit of a bummer, since the rice plates with roast duck cost an extra few bucks (due to the supposed duck shortage resulting from covid supply chain issues). The kids liked the char-siu, and it was definitely better than the average char-siu, but it was missing some sweetness to it that really good char-siu has. The soup-of-the-day was good (on that day it was lean pork shank with pear and white snow fungus), and came in a good sized bowl that was shareable with another person. Also another surprise was that the rice plates do not come with a side of veggies (needs to be ordered separately). The veggies are the typical Chinese greens, but it was a welcome supplement to the heaps of meat. Be sure you eat what you want off your plate, the servers are very quick and will take your dish away if you stop for more than 20 seconds. Overall, a decent and satisfying meal. Don’t expect a gastronomic revelation (as some Youtube/Netflix shows/reviews have made this place to be), treat it instead as a very competent and authentic place to eat good Cantonese bbq, and you won’t be disappointed. Parking is plentiful (rarity in Richmond BC strip malls) and is covered so you don’t have to venture out in the BC rain.More

Today's New Year's Eve , I lined up at ten o'clock in the morning to buy roast pork. There were around 40+ people in the lineup, I thought it was not too bad, it should be ready within an hour, but I was fooled, because...the store has so many dine-in and take-out, and they were given priority, so I waited for almost two hours, and I will not go again in the future, other BBQ places in Richmond don't have this problem, or it's not so outrageous that way this place treated those in the lineup for take-out. The BBQ stuff is average, nothing like other reviews' high praise.More

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
