Good Chinese Food in Victoria - recommendation needed

Any good recommendations for Chinese food in Victoria? Doesn't have to be fancy, "hole in the wall" or obscure location recs fine.

    Many years ago the best place was Foo Hongs, on Fisgard.
    Now we like Szechuan Restaurant at 853 Caledonia Ave better.

    It's small and family-run so if it is busy, be patient! Yum. And inexpensive.

      We also like J & J Wonton Noodle House. I've never had a bad meal there.

        I always used to like J&J Wonton Noodle House, but I can't comment on the authenticity. I think the John's Noodle House guy is one of the original Js.

          John's Noodle House on Bay just East of Blanchard. In a Strip Mall, food is served up hot as it is prepared.

          My fave is the Spicy Green Beans, I have no idea what they are called on on the Menu, I am not even sure if they are on the menu (I first saw them on a Specials board. I also love the Chinese Broccoli, it is served hot and crisp.

          DH loves the Ginger Fried Beef and Ginger Fried Chicken, House Fried Rice.

            If you do try Golden City, do try the off the menu Cantonese food. Maybe they have Wo Choy (set dinners) which maybe interesting.

            I do plan to visit again next year but if Uncle is able we will meet in Richmond then. So at 90 I can only hope I will have many visits to Victoria.

            There is a good Chinese bakery for Hong Kong buns on the same street as Golden City (opposite side) just before the gate to Chinatown.

            Hope this helps, my cousin is like me we hat ruts in that we find a good eatery we stick with it until they change.

            If you want a hole in the wall than Tong Ho is for you.
