Grand View Szechuan dishes up authentic Chinese Szechuan cuisine offering fresh seafood, meat, poultry, and vegetarian options.
I've been coming to Grand View for many years. They have the most amazing deep fried chili squid in the city (leagues above Szechuan Chonging). Light, super-tender and crissssssssspy! Their vegetables are always fresh and crisp. All dishes have a great sauces, none of which are the typical cornstarch goo mess. Light, spicy, flavourful - almost broth-like. The stuffed tofu with minced pork is amazing. Crisp tofu, tender pork filling, tangy tomato-tinged sauce. Also highly recommend the tangerine peel beef.
Thank-you Grand View Szechuan for being such a reliable friend.
Went here on a Sunday night (4 adults and 2 children).
Ordered Wor Wonton Soup at $9.95; Chicken Sauteed with Black Bean Sauce for $10.95; Sliced Lamb Family Style for $13.95; Prawns sauteed with cashew nuts for $14.95, House Special Chow Mein for $10.95, and steamed rice for the table. The kids and I had a coke each and the other adults had a total of 4 beer.
The food was very, very good. It came at the right time (soup first, then the rest of the dishes within a few minutes of each other (with the rice coming 2nd). We ordered mostly meat dishes - but they came with a nice amount of vegetables which were cooked to perfection. The spicy item (the lamb) was spicy - but not uncomfortable to eat.
The service was warm and welcoming, with quality checks and offers bring more beverages as needed.
It was a good family dinner and we will return.
went here as a couple, on a Saturday night. The restaurant had about 3 tables filled and we were the fourth. Seems like a neighborhood place as the staff remember customers names as they are picking up their take out. Ordered a few dishes and everything was fine. a little out of the way for us, so don't think i would go specifically for this place.
I've been eating at the Grand View regularly for 20+ years, at their old location on Broadway and now on Fraser Street. For me, it's the best chinese food in the city, and it's certainly the best in its price category. Service is fast and friendly, food is consistently good. Only complaint is that they're closed on Mondays.
After phoning the restaurant to confirm that their veggie menu had many items suitable for vegans, my partner and I went their for dinner on a Tuesday evening.
It's a small restaurant and looks like it's either new, or been refurbished recently. There's nice fresh paint on the walls, new looking flooring and new, clean bathrooms.
We ordered exclusively from the vegetarian menu and found the food to be quite good - with our favourites being the fried spicy green beans and the braised tofu and chinese mushrooms. The veggie dumplings were also nice. The deep fried wontons were just "ok" and so were the faux meat dishes. We had the lemon "chicken" and the sweet & sour "pork".
The waitress was very friendly and knew what vegan meant. I probably wouldn't go out of my way to go there again (it's quite far from where we live), but if I lived in that neighbourhood, I'd definately be going there again.
I just like this place. No frills, lots of selection, decent service, great taste and large portions. Not gormet, but good all around. The vegetarian won ton soup is awesome, spicy szechaun chicken dishes are good; seafood hot pots and prawn chow mein were great. Usually not too busy...service is not bad, but often have to wave them over to order because they give you lots of time. I haven't ordered anything I don't like here yet.
Was in the area and decided to drop in. The lunch special for $5.95 was outstanding and a great bargain. Kung-pao chicken,rice, tea and soup really hit the spot. I will surely come back certainly for the lunch special and maybe more.
Have been to this restaurant for the last couple of months for lunch. Went there with a co-worker once a week and has not disappointed. The lunch specials are numerous and the food all taste good. The cost of the specials are of great value as they start from $ 5.95 and up. You get hot & sour soup, and rice with your order. Service is always pleasant and the restaurant is clean. I have tried the chicken dishes as well as the beef, the chow mein and prawn dishes. All dishes were tasty, fresh and well cooked. I recommend this place and definitely will return.
A friend introduced me to this place last week and I dragged my b-friend there only days later to get some more of their amazing sizzling jumbo prawns and crispy skin chicken. Yes, they have the usual stuff on the menu- order from the chef's recommendation list to get some more interesting stuff. Good, spicy (but not TOO spicy) Szechuan food. The decor is warm and cozy- great paint job. Only problem- both nights I was there, the take-out orders were coming in fast & furious, which meant that diners in the resaurant had to wait a bit too long to place orders. But I can see why they're busy...and soon I'll be ordering some of their take-out for myself!
