If you like Chinese food and are looking for something a bit different then this is the place for you!
Food so tasty. Unlike any Chinese meal we have had - and we have had a lot!
If I lived in Vancouver this would be a restaurant I would frequent a lot.
Food was great, service was amazing - fun night thanks to service by Tracey !!
Excellent find in Chinatown. A bit like Boa Bei but more classically Chinese. Well with a visit.
Great food, great suggestions from server. Good service. Unique place!
Great food, service friendly but way too slow - especially at end of meal. Servers vanished for far too long. We sat waiting to pay for almost 40 minutes. Exact same thing happened both times I’ve fined there.
On our first night in Vancouver, we walked to Chinatown and dined at Sai Woo on the recommendation of our concierge. It was fairly early and the restaurant was mostly empty. We were greeted warmly and seated promptly. Our waitress explained the menu and made some personal recomendations. We had the prawn appetizer, then two mains. The duck lo mein was the most outstanding dish. The other dishes were very good but we loved the duck lo mein. We had the Italian wine that was on tap and found it to be very drinkable. We somehow missed the craft cocktails that were being made and may have t go back for them.
Great Restaurant with a beautiful interior decor. All our dishes were delicious, great flavors and presentation.
Found Sal Woo on Trip Advisor whilst looking for places to eat in Chinatown Vancouver. The reviews were very good and when we arrived the food exceeded our expectations. Vibrant atmosphere, good service, excellent chef who clearly takes pride in his food.
Sai Woo was awesome. Our only moderate issue was the food was very slow to come out. But when it did, it was fantastic.
I ordered fried noodle and added chicken to it. It’s the chicken that was disappointing . I suspected it’s a heat up of left over cooked chicken and threw to the noodles. Some pieces are still cold and some are over cooked. The worse is the chicken skin that were found detached. And the taste of chicken was also funny.
The waitress ended up giving us a dessert. The waitress was very nice, no complaints on her service wish the food can be better
Loved the atmosphere and great service. Had the chefs special and all the food was amazing- never tasted better food of rhis type anywhere- highly recommended.
Innovative Asian fusion cuisine, good service and great ambience were all there at Sai Woo. Definitely not your Chinatown greasy spoon (which I also love) but a refreshing change for the foodie evolution.
I and the family will be back. As close to Chinese food that we had in china as we can can find in North America. Dumplings were fantastic.
Excellent in all regards. Enjoyed happy hour discount apps
Absolutely delicious, creative fusion food in a beautifully decorated room. The cocktails are also fabulous, all in all a fantastic experience
Fantastic food - some of the best we have eaten and great service - thanks Andrea!
I was visiting from New York City. based on the reviews and my love of Asian food, I was excited to dine here. Sai Woo was pretty disappointing. While the ambience and the drinks were pretty good, the food was fairly bland. Items indicated as spicy not only weren’t spicy but had no flavor (I.e. The calamari dish).
I booked a table of 6 on OpenTable. It says on the confirmation 18% gratuity will charged for party of 8 or more. Only 5 of us showed up. When the bill came, the waitress informed us 18% gratuity is included. Then I told the waitress, we only have 5 people and she said but you booked it for 6. And, apparently they do charge 18% for party of 6 or more- which is not consistent with information on OpenTable. The overall service wasn’t too great because it seems like waitress isn’t passionate about her job. When we asked for recommendations on the menu, she wouldn’t really help us.
Good variety of dishes that are easy to share. Excellent service on a busy Friday night. Visiting from San Francisco where similar experience can be found at Slanted Door
This was the best fine so far in Vancouver.
Innovative cuisine .. amazing service especially if you sit at Tracey’s table.
Start out early and hit happy hour and stay til dinner ...
Black pepper beef/calamari / dumplings / scallion pancakes are all delicious.
Great for a date, a hangout, or a group dinner!
Extremely happy with the experience. Their happy hour is until 630, so we just made it in before the cutoff after work.
For drinks, we tried the lychee watermelon sangria (it was highlighted on the menu), and I would definitely order again.
We shared the spring rolls, kimchi pork dumplings, Korean garlic chicken and the duck confit lo mein. It was all so good, though the lo mein was a bit on the sweet side for us. The spring rolls were perfect with a light, soft middle and perfectly crispy wrap.
The atmosphere is perfect. It's dark but surprisingly well lit to give great ambiance. The music is at the right level, so it's easy to chat. The service was fantastic. I would recommend it, and will definitely be back!
Great Asian restaurant in Vancouver!
Sadie was our server and was appropriately attentive. Her food recommendations were spot on, every plate was outstanding. Overall fantastic experience!
The food was a Pan-Asian fare, but it knocked everything out of the park. The servers we had forgot some extra condiments we asked for the spicy noodles we ordered but the quality and taste of the Korean fried chicken, and salt and pepper chicken more than made up for it.
It's a bit dark so it doesn't let you truly appreciate the aesthetics of the food, but again the quality of the product more than makes up for it. A very solid choice when visiting Vancouver.
Had the chefs 4 course surprise special
Lo mein with duck
Tiger prawns with asparagus
Mousse chocolate cake w/raspberry and various caramels
Everything was outstanding.
Good food with a great cocktail list. Interesting dishes you won’t get other places.
Great vibe for fun asian fusion restaurant in Chinatown. Highly recommended dishes: pork spring rolls, garlic chicken, shaky vietmnamese beef, duck confut noodles. Our server was very nice—even gave us tourist tips for sightseeing in Vancouver. Creative, original spot.
One of the countless boring pan-Asian places that seem to be cropping up everywhere. Across the street is an authentic Chinese restaurant serving delicious food at literally a fraction of the cost. Bring your own bottle and cross the street.
Nice twists on traditional Asian dishes; and not just Chinese. Very tasty. Messed up the order a bit but were gracious and made amends.
Extremely tasty food using lots of wonderful ingredients. Fusion aspects meant we were able to sample cuisines we have not tried before. The decor of the restaurant is very stylish and waiting staff very helpful and attentive.
This was our first night in Vancouver and we wanted to go someplace great and special. We could not a have made a better choice! Tracy, our server, was warm, welcoming and excellent. The menu is unique and delicious! From the Goyza Shrimp to the house fried rice, the dishes we tried were a taste treat. A jewel in Chinatown.
From the service to the ambiance this is a gem in the heart of Chinatown. Simply every dish was delightful, and our server was amazing.
Very nice place, in heart of the chinese main street of Vancouver. Fusion chinese cooking plenty of flavours, staff present but not too much, prices corrects. A very pleasant adress
Innovative and excellent!
Great contemporary Asian cuisine. Delicious food. Outstanding service from our server Julie who made great recommendations and provided attentive service while interacting with us in a really fun manner that enhanced our evening. Fabulous decore and atmosphere. A real gem in Chinatown. Worth a taxi fare.
Another part of Vancouver's trendy chinatown scene, sharp decor with serious vibe . excellent for foodies, with service that is right on top of it. attentive and sincere management insures that everything is taken care of from arrival til departure. a good find
Great meal (as per usual) - Sai Woo is one of my favorite places to dine!
Excellent staff and value
Top notch from start to finish.
Food and service were excellent
Original and delicious
They accommodated our table of 3 so that we could have the chefs sampler menu which is normally for 2 people. Everything we had was amazing, the calamari was so tender, the shrimp cooked to perfection and wow for the beef dishes! Great ambiance and noise level is low making it easy to have a conversation.
