Read the reviews and needed to try the wor won ton. Tasted very good. A large order can put you over the top. The restaurant is not much to look at. Old style decor and stuff everywhere. Friendly service with a smile although be it pretty slow. A steady stream of take out orders and people coming in. Reasonable pricing.... More

A lot of restaurants on Vancouver Island claim to have the best Won Ton soup going but by far the Bonnie Martin tops them all. Go for the soup if nothing else.

A small town style 50-60s family restaurant offering a good variety of Canadian and Chinese foods. Liver and onions to wanton soup, all excellent and served by the nicest folks.

Had the 2 piece fish and chips although very fresh there was not much fish mostly batter. The restaurant server was quite busy and politely apologized for waits. It was ok we were not in a hurry. Coleslaw was yummy. Fries were average.

Everything on the menu is amazing. Raymond is the most gracious host. You can try new takes on classics, such as butter chicken, and hot&cold bread pudding. The Pie is excellent. I overheard someone talking about a Lemon Meringue pie that was donate to a charity going for $200. That's how good it is.
