However for darrenkadish of Burnaby, you do. (No offence to anyone else, as the comment he made ' why the grass is greener ' is sadly from being ignorant about food. )
The Hainan chicken is free range chicken so don't expect it to be your typical big brested white-washed genetically altered chicken. So it might appear slightly yellow and wrinkled but non-mass poultry should look something like that. Hainan chicken is also marinated giving it a yellower glen than normal.
Do try the curries, and the string beans and skewers. The baked seafood rice is usually very good like most of the things offered as a mini meal set (11am-4pm) tend to be. Best of all, the order comes fast and with a drink of choice all within $4-8 (incl. tax and tips) if you get the mini meal.

They have over 100 items on their menu, and this location was the first to open in 1994. They've got the best curry I've ever tasted, try the beef brisket or the seafood curry if you're into seafood. The Hainan chicken comes with delicious rice that's been specially cooked for this free range chicken. Oh, this location probably has the highest standard out of the other branches. Order the stuff that's on the placemat it's their signature stuff. They've got one of the best French toast combos...well it's hard to screw up but where else can u get a drink and French toast for $3? Service is average, like most Chinese places, but the food's fast and tastes fantastic and at a very affordable price.

Scammed: They could do so much more but in the end you just feel dissapointed.

A few of my friends got some coupons to go to this classy high end restaurant. They get full points for creativity, you cook your meat on a slab of granite BUT, you come out smelling like cooked blood, they don't marinate the meats at all so it's really tasteless (I'm a sous chef and a few fresh organic herbs or lemon juice marinade would make a vast gustatory improvement, instead of slapping raw meat on a slab of rock and serving it to you). Service was heinous. We asked for a cup of coffee and the waitress had to refer us to the classy Caucasian waiter, and when more people came in for dinner our waiter promptly forgot about us. Dinner took 2 hours to serve up and when dessert arrived the chocolate pyramid was blissfully good, but the apple pie with the chocolate ice cream was crap. You could taste that it was a frost bitten 4 L bucket of President's choice crappulance. Don't get me wrong, I eat that brand at home, but at least the bucket sitting in my freezer isn't all frosty and I get a whopping 4L for under 10$. It's a pretty place to sit and sip old soured coffee, but I would definitely never go there again.
