Living in Pitt Meadows we have tried several Chinese Restaurants. All of the ones we tried in our area were quite disappointing. This place was fantastic! The food was excellent. It was delivered hot and the portions were large. The food tasted awesome and it was not too greasy like most Chinese food we have had. The egg rolls were huge and yummy (they do not contain meat, but are still great!). The sweet and sour pork was served nice and crispy with very little fat or bones and topped with a delicious sweet & sour sauce. The chicken chow mein and beef chop suey were both very good also. The vegetables tasted fresh and were not overcooked. They were done just right (a little crispy, but not too hard or soft). The pork fried rice was awesome. Very tasty, but not greasy. My favourite Chinese soup is hot & sour. My wife is not usually fond of this soup. However, after trying Kitchen On The Ridge's hot & sour soup, she is now a fan of it! It was so good, but for those who are sensitive to spicy food, I would not recommend this soup to you. Most Chinese restaurants serve hot & sour soup, but it is never spicy and taste wise is so-so. Kitchen On The Ridge makes a great hot & sour soup that is actually spicy and has gigantic shrimp or prawns in it. Awesome, highly recommended! Another great thing about this restaurant is that if you order over $30 worth of food, you get a free pork fried rice. They offer a free dish if you order over anywhere between $30-$90. Great value, and service too! Apparently they offer all day Canadian style breakfast too. We have not tried this yet, but after having such a great experience we probably will!

My wife and I visited this restaurant as we were craving Korean BBQ. I was born in Canada and my wife is originally from South Korea, so we have eaten at many Korean restaurants. My first impression of this place was quite good. The interior of the restaurant was nice with lot's of space between tables, big booths and tables, and it seemed clean (the bathrooms are a different story!). Our server came to take our order, but they did not have any sam kiup sal (I don't know the correct spelling) which is what we were craving. We were disappointed but ordered the BBQ for two instead. When the food arrived, we were quite surprised how small the portions were especially for nearly $40. The meat was ok, and the side dishes were terrible. We constantly had to ring the service bell so that the server would change our cooking plate. We noticed that some food on the menu that we ordered didn't come to us so my wife asked about it. One of waitresses said "Canadians do not like that food so we substitute it for another". However, they didn't give us a choice, they just assumed that we don't like that food. Actually, we do like that food. Basically, we didn't get what we ordered, instead they served us whatever they wanted to serve. The servers kept asking other tables for refills of more side dishes, but we were never asked even once. We left without leaving a tip, which is something we rarely do even if the restaurant was sub-par.
