“Won't return”
Reviewed 21 July 2014

This was by far the worst meal we had in Uclulet - Tofino. Everything but the fried rice was badly overcooked. Food had little to no taste. We asked about this restaurant at our condo after we went there and her response was that the food here is "spotty". Should have asked before we went. Not recommended.

“COLD PLATES AND COLD FOOD”
Reviewed 30 March 2014

The staff were very nice but the food on the buffet table
cooled quickly and the plates on the buffet table cold.
Too bad as the food would have been good if it was hot.

“What a shame..”
Reviewed 2 May 2013

My fiance who grew up in Ukee was very disappointed to see the Pen is now closed. That was the first place he wanted to go after our long bus ride up from Victoria. Due to the fire I guess its too much to reopen, saw it on sale on a real estate website. Such a bummer because my fiance said the lovely chinese family who owned it were awesome and truly worked their butts off 7 days a week. Sad to see it go but he says he will always remember those people and the amazing chinese food!

“Was the only place in town to get chinees food”
Reviewed 20 January 2013

The Peninsula Motor Inn to my knowlage was the only place in town of Uclulet that you could get Chinees food. Please be aware, THe Peninsula Motor Inn had a bad fire in the hotel part. This has left about 4 suites destroyed. Currently there does not look like there are any repairs being done. Since the fire the restaurant has been closed. Too bad! Although the chinees food was not the best as i have had better. Sometimes on the greesy side. A member of my family always liked to eat there. If the place ever re opens, we will probably eat there again. So again not bad place to eat. Never stayed in the rooms. THis was a low end motor inn. So you could not expect much, but then the rates also reflected this.

“Typical north american chinese food, well done.”
Reviewed 27 August 2012

Well done and surprisingly good!! We expected grease. But were pleasantly surprised to find just the opposite. Good quality here. Best in region including alberni for this type of fair. Excelent break from camp food. Oh yes. And nice warm staff at your service.
