good dinner combo deal
By ballin_eater of Vancouver (34 Reviews)
Submitted Wednesday, September 2, 2009 - 10:12pm [Dine in]

Went to Kam Do for dinner with a friend. Felt like eating a lot mode from doing strenuous exercise.

Food: I ordered the legendary set dinner includes soup, garlic bread salad, sparkling pop, cold drink, baked italian seafood spaghetti and dessert. Friend had the chicken wing and bacon appy, cold drink, salad, bread, soup and baked spaghetti with turkey meat and dessert. Also ordered the gai lan side for a buck.

Value: My meal was around 12 and my friend's is $11. Very good deal as we cannot finish the main meal so basically 2 meals in one.

Verdict: Will come back again if craving for a heavy meal. A rating of 9 out of 10.

Best Chicken wings
By kangyun1985 of Vancouver (2 Reviews)

I personally don't particularly care for the HK style baked rice etc. but this place has tons of really large dishes to fill people up. But I must suggest this place to anyone who loves chicken wings as much as I do.

Their chicken wings is lightly breaded and deep fried. They are the sizes of the wings you normally get when you order wings elsewhere except you get the entire wing. No additional sauces are added. One order consist of 5 wings for a awesome total of $5.

Incredibile Value
By SteveFung of Kerrisdale (2 Reviews)
Submitted Wednesday, February 18, 2009 - 8:16pm [Dine in]

I just came here after a movie and boy talk about value. It's my first time going here and I did'nt expect the portions that came with the prices.

Only problem is that the food is a bit too greasy and it would be bad for your health if you visit this place too much.

Overall, keep up the good work Kam Do team.

Cheap food with good sized portions
By cypne of Richmond (3 Reviews)
Submitted Tuesday, June 26, 2007 - 12:53am [Dine in]

This place has a really good variety of choices, cantonese, western styles of food. They also even have an option to get a combo meal with free drink refills plus the drinks are filling, I can never get the second round after finishing my meal. The staff seems to change a lot so sometimes you might get the really helpful people or might get unlucky with the grumpy ones. This place is usually packed and it's hard to get parking if you go during rush times.

Great Value for money...if you donèt have a heart attack
By tsej of Richmond (15 Reviews)
Submitted Wednesday, December 26, 2007 - 5:48pm [Dine in]

There is probably no other place I have been where you can get better value for your money. But here is the downside, try the Mixed Grill and you will see. Its a festival of meat on meat with lots of cholesterol for growing boys and girls. Doctors love this place as well...it keeps them in business.

Just to set things straight
By connisseur of Richmond (1 Review)
Submitted Tuesday, May 26, 2009 - 2:55pm [Dine in]

This restaurant is not great because it is good value... Try the food...it is delicious. The line ups are because the food is great, not because it is good value. Even if it is great value. One BIG complaint...it is making me FAT! As for the cleanliness, it is clean where it counts...The Food and kitchen area. If you like lots of parking...may I suggest Aldergrove.

Always my first stop across the border
By gyozadude of Sunnyvale, California (9 Reviews)
Submitted Sunday, August 3, 2008 - 2:41am [Dine in]

Having read the other reviews, I can't figure out what the problem is with folks who complain about the parking or the so-so food. I live in California but come up frequently to Vancouver where I have a second home and Gum Do (Cantonese pron.) is the first stop I take the family to for grub. It's like family dining at it's casual best. No pretensions of being upscale. Shorts, sandals, khaki slacks and pressed shirt - all the same. You get your food and you can eat it your way. And it's okay if your young kids stand up and look over the partitions, making funny faces at other people, because their kids are probably doing the same to you. If you know what to order, this place rocks. There's something for everyone, young, old, Mandarin, Cantonese, Westerner, other. And parking? I just pay the looney or twooney for street front parking and avoid the fiasco out back which is a tragedy of any Asian commons; and best of all, I can watch my car and eat at the same time - a real man's dream! Here, the portions are man-sized. For someone with roots from Shandong province, I'm a VERY big dude and can eat a lot but this place fills me up, usually, most value menu sets are under $10 and include choice of milk tea, ovaltine, hot/cold lemon tea, etc. Dinner for 2 adults and 3 kids comes to just $30 CDN usually and that includes enough for shiu-yie (doggie bag for late night snack). So what's up with this website's price ratings? It's shouldn't be $10 - $20, but under $10. In addition, service by the all female staff and management is fast and efficient. It's so unbelievably cheap, I usually just give them $40 and that's the tip included. And where else can you get the best Lo-por beng in Richmond? I see visitors buying multiple big boxes of the stuff prior to a plane flight. We've express delivered these back to California and to Alaska for the desperate relatives who can't get their baked goods on a regular basis. Of all the restaurants we dine at in Richmond, this is one of the few that has not changed much in the 8 years we've been going here. The staff are still the same and they practically know our kids. We love Gum Do.

Decent place to dine
By healthy_eater of East Vancouver (1 Review)
Submitted Thursday, January 3, 2008 - 2:11pm [Dine in]

There's a variety of dishes to pick from. The price is decent based on the size of the dishes and the fact that most meals include both soup and drink. In some dishes though, there was too much rice compared the meat and vegetables, and the sauce was not satisfactory.

One thing they should definitely improve is the dirty mess at the back of the restaurant. The washroom is not clean, the floor is not clean, and the trolley containing dirty dishes should not be left standing beside the washroom door.
