I have been to this restaurant a couple of times over the years and it has been a consistent decent place. I think the previous reviewer was way off or is some sort of "high falutin food snob" who was expecting a gourmet meal? nevertheless, because she is way off in my opinion. I have had the turkey dinner, hambuger steak and other entrees are they have all been fine. The portions are decent. Yes sometimes it gets busy and they may be short staffed so your wait may be longer but the food is decent.

Restaurants like Foo's are a dying breed. This is the type of Chinese Restaurant I grew up with that sadly no longer exists. Others that come to mind are the Dragon Inn and Renfrew Drive Inn and BC Royal Cafe. This is old style Chinese Canadian Food that is homestyle cooking. It's not fancy Hong Kong Style Chinese food but food that the earlier Chinese Immigrants pre 1967 brought to Canada. It is tasty, simple and unpretensious. Sure it's located in Chinatown and not "high class" but it's decent and fills your tummy. At my last meal I had the Lemon Chicken, Beef Chop Suey and Curried potatos and chicken. I especially liked the curried potato dish. If you go there you will notice alot of "older" Chinese people and whites who remember the "old" Chinatown of the 50's and 60's dining there because it's the only restaurant that still offers this type of Chinese food.
