This is one of the main places I used to go a lot when I was a kid. the Rice/Noodle with 2 toppings combination can be equivalent to 2 MEALS! Talk about value.
They also have help yourself to free soup and tea which is an added bonus. This is probably the best value for food in all of Greater Vancouver.
Prices back were cheap and still remains cheap now!
I still go back there for one reason. To fill my stomach for $5!
Not one of the nicest place to sit and eat, but at that price, does anyone care?
High turnover on food so guaranteed fresh dishes that haven't been sitting there for hours.
It is packed almost all the time and expect to get cut in line. But who cares, it's not like your dish will run out.
Kent's is like a combination of cafeteria style mixed with McDonald's production.
For under $10, you can feed a family for 4, which is a steal these days. However food is average at best as dishes are produced en mass. So expect some discrepancies in some dishes if the sauces aren't mixed well.
But can't complain and say will go there on occassion, only cause it's cheap and portion is huge!
