Wun-tun noodle house.
Mrs. C and I were craving a light dinner and she needed congee to clear up a cold, so off to Daimo we went. The restaurant was clean enough, including the w/c, and was pleasant if a bit plain. My beloved had congee with preserved egg and I had yin yang chow fan (honeymoon fried rice). The congee was reported to be of the right consistency and flavour, and the rice dish was also good, if not spectacular. Lots of shrimp and chicken, and the sauces were a little better than at most places. We also had dong café which was just fine.
Service was good, and the food was satisfying. Plus it was cheap.
The right meal at the right time.
Years ago, this place used to be one of the best noodle and congee places in town, but not any more. A friend had warned me about this, but I still went anyway because it was conveniently on my way and I was in a hurry. I was very disappointed. Nothing tasted like it used to years ago, when I last went there. They must have changed the chef. Even the meat in the noodle with soup was tough, rough, and hard to chew through. Among Chinese noodle/congee places, this restaurant is relatively clean, with good natural lighting, so it is comfortable in that sense. Service was "normal" -- you can't expect much from a place like this. However, with the food being such a let down, I won't go there again.
These guys are conveniently located at Granville and 65th... I was picking up the bride from the airport just before lunch and my tummy was growling, so I suggested we stop in... Service is quick and efficient... If you're looking for great ambiance, this isn't the place... There are always a couple of people on the BlueTooth or their cellphone cooking up some deal... Whatever... Civility has taken such a downturn in our society...
Daimo always has 5-6 lunch specials at 5.75 - 7-75, including a veggie option. It's not Daniel Bolud's asian equivalent cuisine... dishes like black bean beef on rice abound, but it's good, cheap and quick... (The holy triumvirate of restaurants). As well, they have a huge selection of noodle/wonton soups, congee and regular stir-fried meals. Don't bring your Visa or debit card, they only take cash... If you're in a hurry and happen to be in Marpole, this place won't disappoint...
come here often as we live in the area, food is the usual for this type of establishment. Food comes hot and fresh. As long as you know what to expect, this place does not seem to disappoint. the parking area in front of the restaurant entrance is small, i try not to park here as i don't want any dings in my doors. If you park in their parking lot be aware that the parking spots are tiny.
I've probably been here about 7 or 8 times. About 5 of the 8 times involved lousy food. It has much to offer and the prices are quite reasonable, but the food can be very bland, dry, and/or served in small portions. The place isn't horrendous; I would still try it again if someone twisted my arm, but I still wouldn't recommend it to others. There are so many other great Asian restaurants around, so this should be a last resort.
I live in White Rock and I get my husband to get me take out. I usually get the wonton soup (no noodles), sliced beef fried noodle and fish congee. I've tried other fried noodle dishes and the beef brisket but it wasn't great. I've eaten a lot of Chinese food in my life and their wontons and fish congee are amazing. Sometimes they answer the phone in Cantonese but just speak back in English.
Considering the convenience of the lcation (to me), I like this little restaurant a lot. Small place but relatively quick and friendly service. Excellent food considering the price. Aprking lot is small but always have parking on the side street.
This is a simple neighbourhood noodle house. I go for the won-ton noodle soup. They make it with pure whole 100% shrimp. It's great. The broth is standard and noodles are good.
The service is acceptable, as good or slightly better than you'd get in any other real chinese restaurant, which means you'll have to get their attention if you actually want anything from them. Lucky it's a small place so it's not too difficult.
I've tried a few other dishes, nothing worth mentioning or remembering I suppose.
Hello out there,
Just came home from the restaurant and I have to say I was quite disappointed. Out of the dishes we ordered One was bland, the other I didn't try, and the third dish was overly salty. I sent the dish back asking if they could fix it? remake it to decrease the amount of MSG or seasoning as well as maybe adding bland noodles to soak up the sauce? They didn't respond by letting me know what was happening, instead they rudely asked what dish I would want instead? perhaps there was a language barrier... I ordered another dish hoping to be satiated as I was hungry but then I recieved a burnt dish which you could smell. In the end, both the restaurant and myself decided it might be better just not to eat here. My friends finished their dishes and then I came home hungry and am cooking my own lunch :)
The ambiance is a regular chinese restaurant... loud and noisy.
Value is pretty decent as it's pretty cheap for a bowl of Wonton
The service as commented on was poor due to their rude replies and lack of customer service although I guess it was good that they offered another dish but for it to come back burnt is worse than overly salty.
And the food itself wasn't the best quality so Hope that supports my ratings...
If you feel risky :) go and try this place out... if you are hungry and want something yummy to eat... try any other chinese restaurant as I wouldn't recommend this place to my friends at all.
