The Victoria Dr. Mui Garden has got to be my favorite Mui Garden of all. They have a lot of dishes on their menu, but what I think will get you the most bang out of your buck is their 'Tea Time Combo' menu, which is served from 11AM till 6PM. Everything on the menu is around $7 and the portions are huge which includes a cold drink.
I highly recommend the BBQ Pork with XO sauce on Udon, the Spaghetti Bolognese and the Baked Cod with Corn on Rice. These three are definitely my favorites. They don't make them the same at the other Mui Gardens, and the chili oil here is to die for.
The service is decent. Most of the waitresses speak English, and they really try their hardest. Sometimes the place gets a bit busy (usually around lunch) and you might have to wait for a table, but it's worth it. The environment is much like what you'd expect from a HK Style Cafe-Restaurant: nothing too flashy.
Be warned though, your clothes will reek of the food you just ate when you leave.

i-Cafe is a really nice place to eat if you're looking for something a little higher class than your average HK Style Cafe-Restaurant. They charge more, but the place looks nicer and the food tastes pretty good. The service is alright, but the waitresses seem more like robots.
If you've ever had Baked Pork Chop on rice, you'll love the way they serve it here. Also their 'Japanese' inspired Curry Beef dish is amazing. It's basically fried rice wrapped in an egg omelette with curry beef poured ontop. It's very good. Try it.
Although, fair warning: some of the dishes are a miss. But most are hits!

Thai Son used to be one of my favorite places to go and have vietnamese food with my friends. But recently the place has really seemed less and less appealing. The service and the environment is pretty nice: the place is always packed full of people so it's quite nice if you like that kind of feel.
The food is only pretty decent. The Pho there is alright... they don't give you a lot of noodles, and the soup is not as amazing as it used to be. The rice dishes are good-- it's comfort food, but afterwards you realize.. the rice was kind of dry and the meal leaves you with a weird aftertaste that hints that there's maybe a little bit too much MSG put in there.
It's not that I won't go here again, because this place is nice and cheap-- but if you're looking for something better, you'll definitely find it elsewhere.

I've been to New Maple Restaurant a lot. The one thing I love to eat here is the BBQ Pork and Soy Sauce Chicken on Rice. It's a great deal, and it tastes great. I must say that they have the best BBQ pork around. I know that 'The Congee House' is just down the street, and I used to go there until I realized that New Maple had the superior BBQ Pork and Soy Sauce Chicken.
I admit not all the waitresses look friendly, and the environment isn't the best... but the service is decent and I love to eat here! I've tried the other dishes too, like fried rice and noodles.. they're decent.
The Chili Oil here (they sell it too) is the best I've had so far.
But trust me, the BBQ Pork and Soy Sauce Chicken on rice... the best I've ever had.

Pho Linh might not be really flashy, but as far as Pho places go... it's quite solid. Pho Linh is a typical tiny little Pho place, and they server every variety you can think of. The atmosphere is pretty nice and cozy during any time of the day.
The food is very good. They give a lot of noodles for the Pho and the portions are great. The rice dishes are amazing too. If you've ever been to a vietnamese restaurant, ate, and then experienced a nasty MSG aftertaste-- you'll be surprised because you won't find that here. (At least I didn't notice everytime I went).
The service is really good as well. The ladies who run the place came over to pour tea and actually try to converse with me and my friend. And a few times one would come over to ask us how the meal was going each time we ate there. They even asked us if the tea was too strong! Super friendly.
I loved this place. And I'll keep going back!
