On On Wonton House is a Chinese noodle house offering a varied manu of authentic cuisine.
I have ordered the "dinner for 1" combo B. I think that the chow mein is the best of the three dishes in this combo. The beef chop suey has too much sauce, the baby bok choy is often not trimmed properly with the hardened ends still on. The sweet and sour pork is hit and miss, some pieces taste good, some have a funny taste and are tough. The service is fast, but they can be pushy on the phone when you are ordering; probably because they are pretty busy.
I had to chuckle as I came across this other commentaries. The first time I was there was at least 8 or 9 years ago. A joke was that a friend of mine used to call it "No No" (On On spelled backwards) restaurant . I am asian, Canadian born and was raised by authentic home style Cantonese, and am very aware of the "Chinese Canadian restaurants" around the lower mainland, as my own parents ran one. I have to say, on my first visit. this is the worst Canadian Chinese food I have ever tasted. It was definitely bland and quality of non existent. I would much rather buy something premade at Safeway or Superstore. What's more amazing is that it is still around. But, then, most of the customers are non asian.
My family and I went there the other day, figuring it was later in the evening and everywhere else in the area had a huge waiting list. Boy, I will never go there again. Not only was the menu greasy but the furniture had been worn down so much It screamed replace! food wasn't any better, the sweet and sour pork was saturated in starch and grease. Think of it like trying to win the lottery, you just never knew which piece actually had meat. The fried rice wasnt' any better, we had to down it with the tea that we had because it was so hard it tasted like yesterday's and then some. Figuring we made a bad choice and it happens? I gave a tip when the bill came and shrugged it off as a bad experience, until i saw my credit card bill and noticed they charged me twice and both times a 15% tip. I called the manager and he downright refused to refund that, what kind of self respecting restaurant steals people's money? seriously!
Order from On On all the time in delivery. It may not be "real Chinese" food but it's the best I have come across for my pallete.
Good price, solid delivery, usually. Went in one day and didn't really like it as a resteraunt, so I'd recommend delivery.
