Broadway Chinese offers eat in, take out and delivery options.
Broadway Chinese serves whitey's favorites including chop suey, chow mein, breaded chicken balls, etc. The prices are very cheap and unfortunately, the food is barely edible. Avoid this place at all costs, my stomach still churns when thinking about it. Luckily, there is very little drawing in unsuspecting victims and most people will walk right on by. Small town Chinese restaurants have better, more authentic food than what is served here.
I ordered the lunch special. Beef Teryaki and a small wonton soup to start. They brought everything at once, so the main dish sat on the table getting cold while I ate the soup.
It hardly mattered as the Beef Teryaki was served on a stone cold pile of rice they must have made at dawn. The Beef instead of being tender strips in Teryaki sauce was small squares of shoe leather in a sticky glaze. Dreadful.
AVOID THIS PLACE AT ALL COST.
Not only did we wait 1.5 hours for our food, when it arrived it was cold and overcooked. It is absolutely DISGUSTING food for the prices they charged. The food looks and taste like crap, I still can not remove the taste from my mouth, let alone the smell of it from my house .Extremely poor customer service when we called to complain, both staff and manager were very rude. We were also informed that the delivery driver was rude to the receptionist of our hotel. I did not read the reviews on this place until it was too late. Please avoid making the same mistake I did and save your money as they will NOT refund you. I will not ever recommend this place to anyone.
Food is very bland. Ordered Ginger beef, vegetables and Chow Mein. Chow Mein was mushy, vegetables slimy. Ginger beef, orange in color and tasteless. ...disgusted! Walked away from 3/4 of my food, went home and made spaghetti instead.
The Chinese server and cook were inhospitable and as bland as their food and dining area. Bedside manners could use alot of work.
The food is quite good, and the service is friendly. The prices at lunch time are excellent. They make a very good Hot & Sour Soup that I must recommend. It isn't anything fancy, but it is worth the price you pay. Regular patrons keep coming back.
I don't understand why people have had such bad experiences at this place -- I think it's great! me and my family go here all the time and the woman serving us is always so nice and always brings my daughter a fortune cookie, which makes her day.
The food tastes great in my opinion and with such good prices too. In response to some of the other reviews, if some dishes didn't taste right to you then try something else! Just because the 'special fried rice' doesn't taste the way you like it doesn't mean the whole menu is bad.
If you're looking for a nice little place to have good, cheap chinese food, this is the place to go.
After going here for the cheap lunch special and being pleasantly surprised mostly by the price. The food was unremarkable but the options were abundant. I was then very surprised to see such scathing reviews and I am reviewing this place simply to set the record straight. I can't speak for take-out or dinner but for a SOLID LUNCH AT A GREAT PRICE this place is worth it.
This is a good Chinese place if you're looking for cheap and quick. It's not really a place to bring your family or a date, but it's a great place for lunch (2 different $4.72 specials that change daily plus a regular menu of lunch specials), and a quick beer ($2.50). When me and my boyfriend are just hanging around watching TV and have a craving for greasy Chinese, we'll get take-out from here. It's that kind of place.
The one thing going for this restaurant is the prices. Lunch specials are cheap, cheap and cheap. You can get away with ordering a lunch meal for under $5.00. This place gets crowded at lunch time due to the lack of restaurants nearby.
Food quality is rather poor. Don't expect too much. I ordered the Szehuan Beef and though I did not expect much, the food was so bad I had to throw away most of it. Hot and sour soup is one of the worst I have ever tasted.
Avoid this place if you can help it.
We ordered Take Out as this Ambiance is lacking in every single way; Ginger Beef & Szechuan Chicken, when we got home we found clearly GLEAMING RED Sweet & Sour Pork (maybe Beef), & some Bland Noodles with 4 pieces of White Meat + MAGGOT; we took the food back & requested a Refund; the Woman refused & then screamed her head off at her Delivery Boy/Husband/Lackey when he told her to give us or $16 back; she continued to refuse us & then threatened to call The Police, of course we were more than happy to wait; unfortunately they never did arrive (go figure), so now we are warning the entire Fairview Community, & allowing everyone in our Neighbourhood to see exactly what a Swift Fix for $5 bucks can really get you.
2.5 hours to get almost cold over cooked food...
Avoid this place at all costs...
Told they got busy...And not have a driver..It just left..That was 30 mins late.Call back 30 mins still not here...Sorry we busy and driver is almost there...wow 30 more min wait...
Driver shows up saying she the owner and because I ordered online and only put $1 on my credit card so drivers would not deliver..
Cynical. best way to describe the situation.
no way you could prepare "Chinese" food like this -- if you actually take pride in being Chinese, or had love/respect for the centuries of culinary Chinese arts. okay, yes, granted, this is pretty much a quickie dine-in/take-out joint, but still. this has GOT to be THE worst "Chinese" food prepared by actual Chinese people in Vancouver. there is probably better food in our jails.
take for example, the "special fried rice" -- a plate that, by even the leanest standards, can/should be judged. sadly, nothing special about it all. AT ALL. a few specks of meat here and there, bland flavour. RICE IS IMPORTANT. you don't treat RICE this way, especially if you're Chinese. to quote Chow Yun-Fat in A BETTER TOMORROW II: "For you, rice is nothing. But for us, rice is just like my father and mother. Don't !@#$ with my family." too bad these folks just don't get it.
"special fried rice", BTW, cost $9.40. ($9.40!!) considering you can have some pretty decent hand-pulled noodles in a variety of broths in Vancouver, Richmond and Burnaby for $7, this is an outrage, especially given how unacceptably POOR the rice is. i've also had their salt fish and chicken fried rice, which is basically Chinese-Canadian "soul food" (esp. for southern Chinese immigrants to Canada, mid-century), and it was terrible.
