I live in Gastown and for quite some time I've been hearing phenomenal reviews about this great new Chinese Restaurant from numerous accounts of my fellow neighbors. This past weekend I finally had the opportunity to check out this sleek resto and experience it for myself.
Let me just say that the reviews were on point and the rumours were true this place was fantastic! I made reservations for 6 and upon arrival this bustling restaurant was packed to capacity. We were pleasantly welcomed by multiple servers and the manager promptly walked us downstairs and into the "Emperor's Lounge" where they had a table waiting for our party.
The pretty server made recommendations on their Terracotta short rib and porkbelly sliders, Szechuan green beans, Shanghai noodles and Beijing fried rice. We added to the list by ordering the Seafood saga, prawn rolls, Prawn king tofu, potstickers and Red chilli tofu. The food was absolutely delicious, hot and full of flavour! To end our meal we ordered the "happy ending" desert, a warm tapiocca pie with a thin pastry crust with green tea ice cream and drizzled condensed milk... to die for!
Service, Food, and Vibe were all on point for a trendy and developing neighborhood like Gastown! Can't wait for my next Chinese food craving!

Yesterday I had the opportunity to have a wonderful brunch with my husband and three friends. I recommended The Well for its great tasting brunch menu, consistent flavours and fantastic service. Tho they struggled a bit yesterday due to an unfortunate reaccuring power outage. Despite the obstacle the staff handled the challenge with professionalism and kept the full house flowing as if everything was running perfectly. We'll see you again soon, keep up the great work!
