We stopped here for a late lunch. The restaurant is situated a few minutes walk from Dr. Sun Yat-Sen Classical Chinese Garden. Do not be put off by the outside tired exterior. Inside is a reasonable size, clean and cosy restaurant. We had the Shanghai dumplings and sizzling beef and ginger with some rice. The dumplings were ok and the... More

Great service in an attractive setting. Large portions and the flexibility to change things (I wanted tofu instead of pork on one dish). But when I tasted the eggplant szechuan-style, the flavor was just totally ordinary...kind of like the sauce came out of a jar marked "Chinese-ish for the taste-bud challenged." Maybe other dishes are tastier. I'm going to try... More

This one sits at the corner of Pender and Main in Chinatown, so is perfectly located for bus transfers or shopping. The food is quite good, and the ingredients are good for that price too. They have quite an extensive menu. The few times I was there they were not busy at all, perhaps because they're not as cheap or... More

I'd give it 3.5 stars if I could. The menu at Mitzie's is HUGE! If you can't find something there you like, then you're just not trying. The restaurant itself is pleasant; it reminds me of an old diner. We had a booth by the window so we had a nice view of the street and the goings on in... More

We were starving after walking all over Vancouver, and thought Chinatown would be great. Since it was Sunday, we were surpised a lot of places weren't open. We stumbled on Mitzie's and the price was right. We ordered a special that included the "house soup". Next thing I know, I'm being served a giant bowl of what looked like wonton... More

Looking for lunch and wanted a sit down meal for 6 adults. Only one waitress & very busy (even though it was 12:45pm) but she still managed to take care of us with a smile and helpful attitude. All meals were fantastic!!

Stumbled upon this restaurant whilst exploring Chinese quarters in Vancouver. Decieded to give it a try, as the interia looked good. We were not disappointed, food was excellent, service good and price very reasonable. Unfortunately we never had time to revisit it again, but would definitely recommend it to lovers of Chinese food

Mr. Jackie makes you truly welcome in this authentic Chinese restaurant located in Chinatown Vancouver. His establishment is quite large and can accommodate a lot of patrons. This is a sit down restaurant and I believe they offer take out as well. No Duck Sauce – Just Plum (Inside Joke between Me and Mr. Jackie) The Chinese food is cooked... More

Stopped In For lunch after walking around Chinatown. Picked this place because we wanted to sit at a table and rest for a it after walking all morning. Restaurant was clean and the waitress was friendly. Order many of our normal favorites and were very pleased with our food. Not greasy and very flavorful. Prices were very reasonable.

We loved loved loved the food! This is the only reason we are giving it 4 stars. Not greasy at all, and seriously the best chinese food you will ever eat. (this is from a chinese food enthusiast) however, our water glass never got re-filled, despite a staff member being only 5 meters away the whole time.

Staying in Chinatown

Neighbourhood Profile
Chinatown
With the recent exodus of massive new building projects hitting the neighbourhood, Chinatown; which has always been one of the city's most vibrant areas; is even more buzzing and buoyant than ever before. Playing host to some of the city's best pan-Asian cuisine, from fusion food to traditional home-cooking, Chinatown has remained faithful to its roots as a space which clambers with shop signs and welcomes diners to the table. More that that, it has a hip experimental vibe to it, with trendy pop-ups and catchall market shops. The biggest of Canada's Chinatowns, it is also home to an expansive Chinese garden whose manicured grounds inspire and delight, its ponds and pagodas drawing walkers in for an stroll. Take in the red streetlights, the playful awnings, and the upbeat air that suffuse this area.
