Finally made it to Orchid Delight today. Tried a couple of times when they were in Burnaby, but for one reason or another, never did made it.
We ordered the Laksa, Hainanese Chicken Rice, Char Kway Tiao, Satay and Tofu Goreng.
Satay - forgettable, but the peanut dip is by far the best I have had in Vancouver. Lots of peanuts, unfortunately not much else.
Tofu Goreng - could've been better. Something is just missing in the peanut dip.
Char Kway Tiao was pretty good. Not too greasy and not too sweet.
Laksa - bad. I only taste lemongrass, and nothing else!!!
Chicken Rice - When I saw the accompanying dip that comes with the chicken, I regretted ordering the dish. It is something I would expect from a HK-style cafe, but not from one that claims to serve authentic Singapore food. The boneless chicken was crudely chopped and small in portion.
A bite of the chicken, I felt much better. A spoonful of the rice, I was impressed. The chicken and rice were actually good!!! I would prefer the soya sauce on the chicken to be a little less salty, and chicken to be more at room temperature, but that's nitpicking.
I rate the food between 2.5 and 3 stars.
Service: The lady server was great - friendly, efficient. The male server could have smiled a little more.
Ambiance: Well, yet another Malaysian/Singapore restaurant - banana trees, pictures of Singapore ... You get the idea.
Return? Very likely. The lunch menu is pretty small. There are a lot more items in the dinner menu. I have already decided what to order for dinner next time. Hopefully, they are as good as the Char Kway Tiao and Chicken Rice (except for the dip).
