From the outside, seemed like a typical Chinese restauarant catering to nonChinese. We went here to try based on recommendation of friend who said if we wanted to try authentic Chiu Chow then this is a must.
The decor is nothing spectacular, sort of like a typical western style cafe.
We ordered items NOT on the menu and had several Chiu Chow dishes. I guess it's because of the location, they had to cater to the people there so it was the basic fried rice, frien noodles, sweet & sour pork etc. So if wanted something authentic, you would have to ask the chef/owner in person.
Otherwise you would not know those dishes existed. We tried a mix of dishes on & off menu. The omellette, soup, beef fried noodles, crab along with the Taro dessert. Another time we came, we ordered a shark fin dish. Yes, to my surprise, it was on the 'off' menu. Most of the dishes were very good. Would definitely go back again.
In the Greater Vancouver area, there arent' many Chiu Chow dishes that are good, but we are glad we came to this place as this is one of the better places to have the authentic cuisine.
Don't expect a nice decor but if you want to eat good, make sure you ask the chef what is their off menu dishes.
