If a busy, well lit, noisy, spartan atmosphere is not what you're looking for but great Chinese food at great prices are, then this is your place. Congee Noodle House is packed at lunch and dinner because it is good so come early to get a table. The place specializes in congee and noodles and I always have the shredded... More

A large bustling Chinese restaurant with tasty food. Extensive menu from the basic wonton noodles to the fancy live crab. Meat, vegetarian and seafood options are all on offer. Great for bigger groups to share a multiple section of dishes. Some of the best wontons in the city. They are big and plump with generous pieces of prawns. The one... More

This is a go-to restaurant when you are craving some decent tasting and decent priced Chinese food. There are many different dishes but some of my favourites are the wonton soup, cream corn fish, salty fish and chicken fried rice, and house noodles. You can't go wrong coming here for lunch or dinner. It is also great for big groups.

Call beforehand for a pickup, the place is always busy! The food is reliably tasty. Beef fried rice with lettuce, beef brisket, and green beans with meat are staples. The congee is good too! I have no photos to share because I ate it all.

Well, I have been given chances to this restaurant because the food is good. However, I really feel that they do not upgrade to electronic billing system with a hidden agenda. Every time I go, I check the bill. The price for each item ordered always $0.50 more compared to their current menu. One time, the cashier short-changed a dollar.... More

The menu is extensive and there is something for every palate. My favourites are the Pineapple Sweet and Sour Chicken, Spareribs with Garlic and Honey, Deep fried Shrimp Wontons and Green beans in black bean sauce and garlic. Oh yes, I'll be back!

Three of us decided to return to this restaurant for dinner after a year had passed. We were not disappointed. Being able to speak a little Chinese does help but in today's society, many of us Canadian born are no longer fluent. The menu is in both Chinese and English so you should not have a problem ordering. I'm sorry... More

My wife says better than max noodle house in Richmond. She had fish ball soup with noodle and I had satay beef with rice noodle. Not enough satay flavour but rice noodles nice and slippery.

I've eaten at the Congee noodle house 50+ times over the years, but never again. I dropped by recently for a quick bite late at night and my experience was a disgrace. I ordered cold milk tea to start, but it tasted horrible. I asked the server politely for another one...since it tasted off. The second drink tasted better but... More

We had heard so many good comments about the Congee Noodle House that we simply had to try it. Off-street parking is available in the rear (enter off of 8th Avenue) and remember that there is no street parking on Broadway during the morning and afternoon rush hours. The white chopped chicken (steamed) is excellent and the House Special Chow... More

Neighbourhood Profile
South Main
South Main, or SoMa, is a neighbourhood in upswing. Inhabited by young humanitarian professionals in converted lofts and studio apartments, what was once an industrial centre is now a wellspring of vintage and eco fashion shops, contemporary sawdust-floor galleries, craft beer joints, and basement acting studios. All set to an Art Deco background with a strong blue collar sensibility underpinning each new pop-up and foodie trend, SoMa is on the rise.
