Yummy said my tummy, the food is very attractive and tasty. One plate served the two of us. We then took out food and sat outside on the patio area. Fun!

The food was of such poor quality it was inedible. The meat was tough and of poor quality. The sauces were did not represent any type of Chinese food I am familiar with.

This was some of the worst Chinese take away I've ever experienced. While served Nice and hot biting into the lemon chicken it resembled something that under no imagination could have been real meat. The beef was so tough it couldn't be swallowed. Not even the seagulls deserve this garbage.

I'm Chinese American and eat lots of Chinese food. The place is a step up from a Panda Express, it's nothing to write home about but if you need some Chinese food, it will do the job. I had steamed rice with string beans with meat (very good), and the honey glazed pork (just so-so).

We also had the spring tools which are very crispy and tasty , and the food is very... More

I was exploring granville island, and was craving some good asian noodles and i saw the words "chow mein" so i thought it must be good. I decided to get it with their sweet & sour pork. All together it was about $8, which is a lot compared to some other places in my opinion. I should've saved that money... More

There really isn't too many choices in the food court at the Granville Island Public Market. Some things just don't improve. This is a poor imitation of Chinese Food. The chow mein was a poor quality of noodles and was tasteless, the sweet & sour pork was stuck together and you can tell the outside was soggy. Prices are not... More

Good food and very reasonable prices, Gourmet Wok makes for a easy option for lunch while touring Granville Island. Located inside one of the market buildings in a food court setting, they provide the typical fast Asian food options while you take a break from all the shopping.

It's average asian bistro food. Not great, large portions, very fat and greasy, fairly pricy, fast service. The food is heavy and although you might be hungry and the portions are large, don't eat everything. You'll probably feel nauseous or even toss the cookies. However, it can be good in a very small amount, just to get the taste. The... More

Neighbourhood Profile
Granville Island & Fairview
One of the favoured neighbourhoods for a day out, Granville Island's packed theatres and art studios, hobby shops and book stores, restaurants and bars, all offer a plethora of activities and entertainment options, leaving no one bored. The highlight of the area is the Fisherman's Wharf, where the seagulls overhead and the smell of the sea invigorate its many visitors, some of who are there to shop the fresh wares at the public market, and others of whom have arrived to take in the eclectic atmosphere. A popular seafood destination, and Vancouver's leading spot for improv and amateur theatre, Granville Island is an indulgent, welcoming entertainment centre in any season or time of day.
