Kan Yon Restaurant was a venue chosen for an early-lunch one day, during our 3-night stay in Hope last week. We had left the motel on a “lets find some lunch” walkabout — with “lets try to keep it ‘light’, and at a place untried...as yet”. Our choice, though a touch different from what we had had in mind at the outset, worked out quite fine, and we got to sample another dining experience during our stay.
We were warmly-greeted by the owner/cook (our server at that time as well) when we entered and chose a table. He was a delight, and provided some much-appreciated help with our ordering. We liked his attitude, and approach — mix, match, or whatever, and share - anyway was a go!!
We had wished to keep it ‘light’, and chose to order and share two of the ’one dish’ lunch specials — which included a fried rice, chicken, veggies, chow mein noodles, and such. And for the amount of food, it worked out quite fine. I added a cold brew - for a cool touch to start!
Small, family-owned and operated restaurant, warm & friendly service, serving up some “old-fashioned” western-style Chinese food — it was a fun dining experience.More
All foods well prepared and very tasty. Good variety and good service..soups are our favourite. Buffet on Fri, Sat & Sun, with many excellent choices. The War Won Ton soup is my favourite; could eat it every day.
We needed dinner on our way home, so we decided hope would be good. My wife wanted Chinese. I looked on TripAdvisor for a good Chinese restaurant in Hope. Kan Yon seemed to have good reviews.
Service was pleasant, good and efficient. The food was...soso. Chop suey was good. But Bbq Pork chow mien was all noodles. There were a few strips of bbq pork but not enough to call it Bbq pork chow mien. it was tasteless . We also order dry garlic ribs. The serving was large but they were not to my liking.
The place seemed clean. The men's washroom did not have soap or paper towels.
This was not the best food but not the worst.More
Stopped in Hope for lunch and found this restaurant. Really nice lady providing really good service. Didn’t realise how big egg rolls are. The lunch specials are a three selection combination that’s huge....even my husband couldn’t finish. Clean rest rooms and a good local experience.
Have enjoyed stopping at this friendly old style Cantonese/Western restaurant. They have over 300 types of tea as well. I almost always order the Wor Wonton Soup. Their wontons are tasty and they cure their own BBQ pork which is very lean. The menu has...a lot of the Chinese-Western favorites that used to be prevalent throughout small town BC and Alberta. Worth the stop before you continue your journey.More
