Although there are a few poor reviews, Cafe Loyal is a great spot to catch lunch! There is a great selection of Asian inspired dishes which are fresh and hot! If you've traveled in Asia you'll appreciate the ambiance, the speed of service and the price.
Check it out!

Yesterday I went with my friends to “Café Loyal”, a small Chinese restaurant at Bridgeport Road in Richmond. We ordered Mixed Grill (Steak, Pork Chop, Chicken Steak, Ham & Fried Egg with Black Pepper Sauce and rice), Free Ranch Chicken in Herb Noodle Soup and BBQ Pork & BBQ Duck on rice. I had the Mixed Grill plate. The pork chop was thin but ok. The meat of the steak was from low quality. The chicken steak appeared to be deep-fried instead of pan-fried and was also not the greatest quality. The thin-sliced ham was certainly also from cheap quality. Also, the taste of the Hong Kong-style coffee was not so great. My friend, who had the BBQ meat plate, agreed that the dishes were rather fast-food quality than a real meal in a common restaurant. It is certainly rather something to fill the stomach than to get an enjoyable meal.

My spouse and I came here for a quick lunch around 2:00 PM. When we arrived the restaurant was still half full. The restaurant has seating for about 50 patrons.

This restaurant is a self-serve cafeteria style. You choose meals from the LCD TV menu boards by number and then give your order to the cashier.

Depending on the meal, your meal comes with a 16 ounce drink including ice coffee, ice tea and Hong Kong coffee. There are other beverage options as well.

My spouse ordered the "L32" - $9 minute steak with pepper based brown gravy, corn niblets and spaghetti. The portion size of the steak was around 6 ounces and was tender. Taste-wise, it was okay with a slight peppery taste. She also had an ice coffee that tasted pretty good – slightly creamy and not too sweet. My spouse thought it was a bit on the sweet side.

I ordered the "L5" - $8 curry beef brisket with potatoes and rice. The brisket tasted okay and was somewhat flavourful and not spicy at all. I have had better curry beef brisket.

I had an ice tea which tasted alright.

Her meal included the cold beverage as did mine.

The total cost was $17. Menu pricing includes the taxes.

The food overall was okay as was the service – none to speak of because it was self-serve. Our order took less than 8 minutes from the time we ordered until we picked it up.

The restaurant is not a bad place for a quick, relatively inexpensive meal with the downfall being the lack of parking. I would rate the overall food experience – price, portion size, taste and atmosphere - 3 out of 5.
