Have had late night meals here a few times before. The service is fast and efficient, though not so friendly, but what do you expect for these types of restaurants. I think its a pretty good value, i usually get some sort of noodle soup with dumplings.
Food comes out pretty fast, and its always good. I admit that i haven't tried many of their items, mostly variations of some sort of noodle soup. I have also tried their jellyfish with chicken, pretty good too.
Clean, but standard and sparse decor.
Wouldn't mind eating here in the evenings if i'm hungry and looking for a cheap meal.
I stumbled across this place by accident. Saw the words "congee" on their sign so stopped by. There's no decor, no style, no ambiance, service without a smile and they take cash only. But if you can get over those, the food is good. I usually drop by when the staff are eating their dinner around the table at 9 o'clock; I wish they'd ask me to join them as it looks good and I'll never know what they're eating. But instead I order noodle soup or friend rice or gailan and those are always good. There's probably a few other as-good chinese resataurant in the area but I like this place. Apparently there's another place with the same name on Kingsway; not sure if they're related.
Visited during the week at 9pm and able to order off the late night menu. 2 pages and some good choices. Had fried rice - bit on the wet side, shanghai noodle-good for a catonese restaurant, fried pork intestines - good, clams - small but tasty, honey spareribs - good and some greens. Overall, service was a bit spotty and nothing really about the ambiance. Would go again for a quick bite. Value was just ok as the dishes were a bit on the small side.
Dropped car off for repair and needed a place for lunch. Choice between Royal Oak Sushi and Au Wing Kee. Finally I made a right decision. Curry beef brisket on rice and a beef brisket noodle in soup. Both dishes were very good. Service was excellent. Price was awesome $11.00 plus tax. Place was very clean and they have parking in the back. A return visit is a certainty
I find it hard to find decent chinese food, especially in the burnaby area, but this place is pretty good. I was here with my dad and we both had noodles and they were pretty good. Service is typical "chinese style", drop off the menus, take your order and if they're not too busy, pour some tea for you. I've also ordered take-out here, the rice dishes and chow mein dishes are pretty solid too. Their open pretty late too, I think like 1 am.
Whenever I find myself needing a later and/or lighter than usual dinner, I think of Au Wing Kee. I often order wonton noodle soup with a plate of veggies with oyster sauce, or a bowl of congee. They always come promptly and well-prepared. I have tried the bigger dishes too, and their quality is also reliable. Very solid performance all these years. One thing, though, is they only accept cash.
The food is consistent. Personally, I enjoy the jellyfish. Overall, the food was pretty good and the service was fast. It is nice to have a few parking spots in the back as well, seeing street parking sometimes is difficult. Ambiance is alright, just like any other chinese restuarant. Run down but tastes fine. They will definitely be seeing me back.
This restaurant is consistently good with their food. They taste the same everytime. We always get their congee because they are the best we can get in town. They have anything from $3 deep fried squab, which taste awesome btw, to crap and lobster. One advice though, they are not that great with fried rice. Everything else they are very good.
They have limited wait staffs so when they get busy service might be poor. Parking is pretty limited too if it's peak dining hour.
With so many HK style cafe restaurants opening, it has given this place some competition.
Food was decent but prices aren't as cheap for the food quality we are getting.
There is a distinct smell of bleach each time I went there. Did anyone smell it? Finding a parking is a pain if u park there during rush hour 3-6 pm as there is no parking allowed on Kingsway during those times.
I would not go back there again as there are other options more appealing.
We dropped by for a late night meal as I was craving congee. My hubby ordered a chicken congee and I ordered their dace balls and watercress congee. We also shared a wonton soup. The food was delicious!! My hubby didn't care about their wonton, he complain that there were mainly prawns in the wonton. He prefers pork filling instead. I didn't mind it at all.
Personally, I thought their congee are better than Congee Noodle House, taste wise and selection wise.
I have no complaints about the service. Waitress was nice and service was prompt. Our tea cups was never empty.
Good value for your money. Lots of chicken in the congee. Wonton were big considering its mainly prawns inside.
Ambiance was decent. Its casual dining and its clean, at least in the dining area.
Definitely a return trip for their congee.
This restaurant is tucked away on Kingsway by Royal Oak. We like to come here for basic Chinese fast food such was wontons, chow mein, congee, etc. The food has a nice old style chinese restaurant quality to it - most CBCs love this. However, we found the portions a bit small. Everything else is fine. We would recommend this restaurant.
I've been going here with my hubby for a few years now and it's always been good food. The food comes out quick and the service is somewhat decent. Dont expect the waitresses to be friendly. They just want to get you your order and then out the door. We've never had to wait for a table at any time of the day. It's a good spot for a quick cheap meal.
We got in for an early dinner so we didn't have to wait to be seated. Ambience was fine, nothing special. We mused at which animal we were based on our year of birth and mulled over the menu. The menu, by the way, is enormous. So many options and specialties. They claim to be known for their Schezuan, so my uncle ordered that, and the rest of my family got typical Chinese grub: Chou mein, Sesame Chicken, General Tso's, etc.
I wasn't very hungry (unfortunately) so I got ordered the wonton soup and vegetable eggrolls. The soup was good (can't go wrong with wonton soup) and the eggrolls were ok, but next time I'll get pork. The veggie versions were about 70% paper noodles, 28% carrot, and a tiny mushroom thrown in to make up the rest. No cabbage, nothing else. If it weren't for the fried goodness on the outside and the sweet and sour sauce I would have thought I was cardboard stuffed with some cold cardboard.
Uncle said Schezuan was not as spicy as he would have liked, but otherwise good. I sampled the chicken dishes, they were delish, though, again, pretty standard stuff. Portions were huge, but the prices warrant that.
Overall, not bad. I wouldn't call it the best bar-none, but I'd go back.
