“High quality Cantonese Food”

Harrison Chinese Restaurant
Cuisines: Chinese
Restaurant details
Reviewed 14 March 2014

I was staying at Harrison Hot Springs Resort and Spa and felt like having some Chinese food. At first glance, this looked like a restaurant that served bad Chinese-American stir fry food, but upon enquiry with the waitress/host, she said the fare was Cantonese with some Szechuan. I decided to give it try, ordered shrimp fried rice and seafood foo yong. For a restaurant outside of the urban area of Vancouver, we were pleasantly surprised by the authentic Cantonese cuisine we were eating. It was delicious and the waitress was very friendly. The food was served quickly, we enjoyed it immensely and I would encourage anyone who enjoys Chinese food and who happens to be in the small town of Harrison Hot Springs where there is not much to choose from, to give this excellent restaurant a try.

For us, even with so many previous stays in Harrison Hot Springs, this was a new-to-us dining experience during our recent (4-nights) stay. We were still a touch unsure what to expect when we chose to go there, but after settling in, meeting our server, placing our order, we were treated with very decently-prepared Chinese food, and what we thought was quite exceptional service.

It's a quite small place, with tables to accommodate four diners alongside the windows, and three larger, round tables, to the inside, to accommodate families or larger groups.

It was a Thursday, and rather early (just after 5pm) when we got there to dine .... there were three tables of diners when we arrived, the restaurant was full before we left.

We (three of us, two seniors) ordered separate dishes from the menu -- here's what we had: house special chop suey (crispy noodles, with a selection of veggies, a few prawns, and meats, and etc.), chicken with diced veggies and cashew nuts, beef and tomato, a bowl of steamed rice, and their Chinese tea. A good offering for the three of us, and very little of anything was left on the plates to go back to the kitchen.

The prices were a touch on the high side (but not unexpected for Harrison we thought), but we found the food well-prepared and tasty, and the service from kitchen to table to be quite exceptional (and I must single out the young server -- she must be commended for her most-accommodating manner .. and 'wow', can she do what she does!!).

We enjoyed our dining experience there ... and given a chance to do so, we'll be back!!

In Harrison Hot Springs I was expecting super high prices, but i was pleasantly surprised. For about 9 dollars you can get a 3 item combination plate. The food is pretty good too. The service is wonderful. I got take out and they were out of take out menus. The young lady taking orders emailed it to me right away. They also do delivery to your hotel.
This is definitely a place I will go back to. The chicken fried rice and fried prawns are really good.

If you need your deep fried fix with western style Chinese food, this is your place. The food is pretty good. The deep friend prawns are amazing. The bill can quickly add up, but when the craving hits... it's worth it. The service has always been pretty good. Eat here often and haven't had a bad experience. Mostly on take out though.

We were going to go to the Blackforest restaurant until we checked the menu at the Door. The prices seemed a little inflated so we took a chance and opted for Chinese. This is easily the best deal in town, food was really good and they put the hockey game on for us. Two of us fed with beer for less than 50 and enough leftovers for another dinner. Truly a diamond in the rough.
