Kitchen on the Ridge offers a menu of classic Chinese cuisine as well as a selection Canadian dishes, including all day breakfast.
Living in Pitt Meadows we have tried several Chinese Restaurants. All of the ones we tried in our area were quite disappointing. This place was fantastic! The food was excellent. It was delivered hot and the portions were large. The food tasted awesome and it was not too greasy like most Chinese food we have had. The egg rolls were huge and yummy (they do not contain meat, but are still great!). The sweet and sour pork was served nice and crispy with very little fat or bones and topped with a delicious sweet & sour sauce. The chicken chow mein and beef chop suey were both very good also. The vegetables tasted fresh and were not overcooked. They were done just right (a little crispy, but not too hard or soft). The pork fried rice was awesome. Very tasty, but not greasy. My favourite Chinese soup is hot & sour. My wife is not usually fond of this soup. However, after trying Kitchen On The Ridge's hot & sour soup, she is now a fan of it! It was so good, but for those who are sensitive to spicy food, I would not recommend this soup to you. Most Chinese restaurants serve hot & sour soup, but it is never spicy and taste wise is so-so. Kitchen On The Ridge makes a great hot & sour soup that is actually spicy and has gigantic shrimp or prawns in it. Awesome, highly recommended! Another great thing about this restaurant is that if you order over $30 worth of food, you get a free pork fried rice. They offer a free dish if you order over anywhere between $30-$90. Great value, and service too! Apparently they offer all day Canadian style breakfast too. We have not tried this yet, but after having such a great experience we probably will!
Gotta say that they try really hard to make this place work. Its cheap but thats for a reason. The place looks like it was designed and put together about 50 years ago. Even back then there was better decor then what they have in there right now. Service really sucked. Not sure if they thought I worked there or what but I sat down at one of the picnic tables inside the restaurant and no one said anything to me for about 20 mins. I had some time to kill so I just played this out. Maybe they could win me back with some service. Well she finally got around to me and you know the service wasn't that bad. She was very nice and accomodating. The food was total crap though. Its more like Kitchen gone off the Ridge. Maybe my standards are pretty high but when I pay about $10 plus tax and tip for a sandwich I wouldn't mind having some comfortbale furiture to sit in and some better decor to look at. Hope the owner decides to update or else this may be heading out of the Ridge soon.
The pinnacle of 'Hole in the wall' Diners!! Luv it, Luv it, Luv it!!! Spent many a weekend there for breakfast. Haven't been there for awhile but the foods great! The service is amazing! (Thanks Jen, hope your still there.) And the rest of the staff is always courteous and awesome too! You just can't beat the value and it's clean!! Don't change a thing! Keep up the good work peeps!!
I have eaten breakfast at the Kitchen on the Ridge a few times. Bacon, eggs, pancakes, etc. Fabulous! Service is great. Courteous and friendly. Place is impecably clean. Value is great. Have not had cantonese menu at all. But for Saturday or Sunday breakfast, you can't beat it.
Had Chinese food here 3 times in the past month and a half.
Very impressed with how good the food is (Chinese Cuisine). Compared to many other Chinese Food Places in town, the food here is hardly greasy other than the deep fried spring rolls :P
The portions are HUGE!!!
The last time I ordered I was at my friends and it was 9:55pm we decided we wanted to get some chinese food. We had no idea what time they closed but decided to call anyway. He calls them up it rings for a good bit then goes to messaging. Just as he went to hang up a lady picked up. She took our order and said it would be ready in 25 minutes. We head over and the open sign was off, she let us into the store. As we waitied for the food to finish we looked at the store sign and they had closed at 8:30pm!!! They took an additional order just for us!! I couldn't believe it.
Fantastic service and a great experience.
Thanks guys keep up the good work!!
PS: The inside is a little older (doesn;t have the new tile fancy ikea look) but it is practical, tidy, and well laid out. I have no problem that a place does not look "Modern" as long as it is well kept which this place is!
