My husband and I ate at Hon's on Robson Street last week while on vacation and it was easily one of the top five worst restaurants we've ever been to. The service and decor were decent, but the food was absolutely awful.
We started with the basic potstickers and to be honest, they weren't bad. By the end of the meal, we were wishing we had ordered more of them. Not that they were so great, but because everything else was bad.
I ordered the Fried Egg Noodles with Black Pepper and Beef Juliennes - which I thought the Fried Egg Noodles was a house special. God help them if it was! My dish came out first and my husband and I started eating it. The peppers and onions in the dish were fine, but the noodles were not that good and the black pepper sauce left something to be desired.
My husband's dish of Chicken with Vegetables and Broccoli Spears then came out. He tried it first and almost spit it out - it was that bad. I took a bite of the chicken and he and I both feared it wasn't cooked enough. It was very slimy and just didn't taste very done. We quickly stopped eating that dish.
We tried to eat more of my dish, but the noodles and the black pepper sauce just weren't good.
I was just shocked by how bad the food was. I had read reviews and unlike what many of them said, I just did not enjoy the food. And what surprised my husband and I was how crowded it was. And, it wasn't just tourists like us - but people who are from Vancouver and actually continue to come back to the restaurant. That's the shocking part.
Needless to say, we wouldn't go back and wouldn't recommend it to anyone else. Fortunately for us - there was a DQ right nearby and we stopped off for a blizzard. We needed something to wash the food down with!
