Chinese Chicken spot
By michwilliams of vancouver (12 Reviews)
Submitted Monday, May 18, 2015 - 12:40pm [Dine in]

My roomie introduced me to this place last year and since then I’ve come back a couple of times for second and third helpings. Even my boyfriend approved of it, which is a good sign cause he’s very picky.

I would have to say eating in is much better than take out - I think the food comes fresher and faster, and the experience is better. There's a huge variety of dishes to choose from, but the ones that deserve all the praise are the chicken ones. You can't go wrong with a chicken teriyaki or orange peel chicken here.

Prices are a little on the high side for Chinese I would say, but if you are a foodie like myself, you won’t mind paying extra.

Really good, inexpensive Chinese food. I used to pass by this place quite often and would ignore it because it wasn't very flashy or full, but don't let the simple looks of this place fool ya. I prefer Timkee to most places because the dishes are authentic (the beef dishes are to die for) and there is an ample variety to choose from. I usually am a little wary of long menus because I feel that there can be a lot of dishes that are not well made, but I guess there are some exceptions. In other Chinese places that I go to I usually end up having to add a ton of salt before eating so that the food can taste good...not the case here. Not to mention that their take out service is pretty good. Tried it out a couple of times, very fast and friendly delivery guy. Haven't had any terrible mix-ups or bad orders yet.

Healthy, clean food option
By susanbeasley of Vancouver (6 Reviews)
Submitted Friday, May 22, 2015 - 8:58pm [Take-out]

We ordered from here last night and was delightfully surprised. Normally I am not one that strays for take-out, especially if it is not organic or vegetarian, but because my husband insisted I had to give in.

We got the spring rolls, tofu hot pot and mixed veggies with a curry sauce. It was fresh and hot. What was a relief was that the food did not have see excess grease floating around, which is quite common for Chinese cuisine. No msg on the food was also a plus. The bill came out quite inexpensive and managed to fill us so we were good to go. If I ever wanted Chinese take out, I would consider ordering again. In a city like this one where Chinese food can be found in abundance, delivering food that actually stands out can be quite the task.

As a student the value for the food was awesome! The service was very quick and fast but the only thing is that its a small restaurant so there could be a little bit of a wait. But other than that a great place to try some authentic Thai food.

Good Healthy Chinese Food
By brotherkingfisher of Vancouver (2 Reviews)
Submitted Friday, July 24, 2015 - 12:19am [Dine in]

Timkee Kitchen is one of the Chinese restaurants I keep coming back to. I typically order their pork BBQ, beef with broccoli and the chef`s best creation, Orange Peel Chicken. Surprisingly, they do not use MSG on all their dishes but still maintain the excellent, flavorful Chinese taste. It`s best to go to Timkee with family and friends because their portions are huge, enough for sharing. Service is friendly and casual but can be a little slow for impatient people. I would advice to either come during off/slow hours or simply getting some take-out.

Good Take-out!
By ericandkristine of Vancouver (29 Reviews)
Submitted Monday, May 4, 2009 - 6:27pm [Dine in]

My boyfriend and I decided to order take out as it was around 11pm and we were too lazy to cook. This place was a real life saver. The food was delicious- and at $37 for 5 entrees it was a real bargain. We ordered the House Special Chow Mein, BBQ pork, Chicken and Pineapple Fried Rice, and Chicken Balls, and free Wonton Soup. As we did not dine in, we could not comment on the ambiance, but the server on the phone was very nice, and allowed us to make the order even though they were closing in 20 minutes. (Not to mention, they had it delivered to us in less than 30 min)

The portions were large, and well worth the money. And with no MSG, the quality of their food stood out even more.

Good take Cantonese take out
By Kitsilanochef of Kitsilano, Vancouver (16 Reviews)
Submitted Friday, April 3, 2009 - 9:52pm [Dine in]

I order take out or delivery from here quite often, the food is good and good service too. I haven't actually sat in the place and ate there, they only have like two tables and its really gross looking, so delivery is definately the best option. Going to the restaurant to pick up my food kind of made me worry about the cleanliness. I'd rather try and find a cleaner looking place to order from, from now on.

My Favourite Restaurant

Submitted Friday, October 7, 2011 - 11:07pm [Dine in]

I have ordered many times from this restaurant from delivery. Today, my parents came from Calgary so I decided to take them to this restaurant for the first time. First, we ordered wonton with spicy chilli gralic sour sauce. The wontons were very big, juicy, and good. Next we ordered dai-ching prawns and szwchuan beef. Both dishes were very tasty and had a good amount of spice in it, very spicy. We also ordered a dish of vegetables which had a variety of vegetables. The food was well portioned and very tasty. The service is great. Even though it is a small restaurant, but it is well worth it for the quality of food. I love this restaurant and am never disappointed.

Great Lunch Deals

Submitted Friday, August 26, 2011 - 11:16pm [Dine in]

Decided to try this place for lunch, and it was such an excellent decision! Timkee Kitchen is a restaurant with yummy Chinese food. Today, I went with a group of 8 colleagues of mine and all of us were very surprised. The food was really good with big portions. For $6.25, you can get Ginger Beef, Beef Broccoli, Chicken With Cashew Nuts and a whole lot of other food selections on the menu with rice on the side and a spring roll. The service was good. The waitresses kept on returning to our table, filling our cups of water and tea. Though this place was a bit small, the food made up for it. Bonus point: No MSG!

Will definitely return soon.

Just wanted to write to say I had an amazing dinner at Timkee Kitchen. Delivery was very quick, in fact, it was faster than they said it would be. A lot of food for a great deal. I will definitely add them to my regular delivery list. Also found out they now offer ordering through Just-Eat, which I used to use in Toronto. Makes my order procedure that much easier, and I know it's quality if it's on Just-Eat. THANKS TIMKEE KITCHEN!

Tasty No-MSG Takeout Chinese Food
By whemedia of Kitsilano, Vancouver (3 Reviews)
Submitted Saturday, June 21, 2008 - 11:26pm [Dine in]

My partner and I have been ordering from this restaurant from some time now and have been quite pleased with the selection. Personally this is like a form of "Chinese Food Nirvana" as they rely on the spices and ingredients rather than Mono Sodium Glutamate (a neurotoxin used in most Asian food).

The other good thing about this place is that if you ask them to make adjustments they actually do it. Let's hope that they maintain their consistency for some time to come. Our favorites are the House Special Chow Mein and the Rock Salt Cod or Squid.

Just so you know, this place is really suited for take-out, though there is seating in the restaurant to give you the home-style atmosphere.

Great food, great value and fast delivery
By Marydunks of Vancouver (1 Review)
Submitted Monday, July 1, 2013 - 7:26pm [Delivery]

Delivery faster than a rabbit. More than enough food to fill the stomach of an ox

I am impressed. No other Chinese restaurant has ever gotten my order to me in 25 minutes.

I usually prefer quality over quantity when it comes to Chinese food , but Tim Kee Kitchen delivered BOTH. The chow mein has perfectly cooked noodles and some of them are crunchy from being stir fried! Yummy! I can tell the egg foo young is fresh from the taste and colour of the vegetables inside.

Best of all: inexpensive. I could feed a family of 6 with the food that I ordered!

I'm going to enjoy the leftovers for the rest of the week during lunch!

After just having ordered from Timkee Kitchen for what must be at least the hundredth time. I just have to reiterate how fantastic the food here is! I could never order from another Chinese place again. In fact, I disposed all of the other restaurant menus.

The Spicy Szechuan Style Beef and Chicken in Chili Sour and Garlic Sauce is so DELICIOUS.YUM!!!

One of the Best Chinese Restaurants in Kits
By kittykat20100 of kits vancouver (1 Review)
Submitted Wednesday, December 22, 2010 - 1:01am [Delivery]

Today, I've a good experience to order Chinese food. I just wanted to share my feeling for all my friends. Chinese food is very popular in Vancouver, I personally order delivery three times a week. Timkee was a surprise to me. I had sweet and sour pork, sweet and sour chicken ball, chicken chow mein and a small steamed rice. I think they did a great job. The food was very tasty. All dishes were big size and fewer oil. Especially, the sweet and sour chicken ball was fresh and when I bit into it, I could feel the juice coming out of it. Most Chinese restaurants that I have tried have a lot of dough in their deep fried items with tiny amounts of food. Plus the rice, was great. Again, when I usually order steamed rice from other restaurants, it is all yellow and crusty. You can clearly see that the rice isn't freshly cooked. But rice from this restaurant? It uses some beautiful jasmine rice and the colour is white, NOT a crusty yellow!!!

If you are too lazy to cook dinner tonight, I think this is the restaurant that you should try. :)

Worst Food Ever.
By username7000 of East Van, The Drive (1 Review)
Submitted Friday, April 5, 2013 - 8:14pm [Delivery]

I immediately regret this decision. Never have I had such horrible food, not just chinese food, worst thing I've ever eaten.
It smells bad, looks bad, and tastes bad. It was all mushed and dry and I'd say flavourless, but that would have been an improvement. I Had one bite of each dish I ordered and threw it all out.
Worst $50 I've ever spent.

Seriously the WORST food EVER!!!
By Carryout of Vancouver (1 Review)
Submitted Wednesday, December 8, 2010 - 7:33pm [Take-out]

We got sold by a flyer delivered to our house. Without checking for reviews we decided to check it out... a HUGE mistake on our part. It is seriously the worst Chinese food I've ever tasted. The shrimp and asparagus was underwhelming and the cod fillet was non-existent - there was more batter than fish in the dish. Don't bother with this restaurant. Terrible, terrible food.
