Just have to say very poor business. The waitress couldn't have cared less about us. Will not stop again.

we've eaten at the Haida-Way Restaurant on a couple of occasions, mainly around noon. We found the service to be quite slow even though the restaurant was not what I would consider packed. The food has always been good but it's not easy to screw up a breakfast order. I must admit that I haven't ventured into the main menu... More

Took my son here last week for dinner. We both ordered cheeseburgers, fries and gravy and we each had a Coke. The burgers were very tasty, but not quite hot enough (the cheese wasn't melted). The fries were crispy and hot, very nice. Gravy was okay, nothing special. The service was quick and friendly. For the two of us, including... More

Staff is always friendly and welcoming. A family environment with home cooked meals. Known for their curried chicken.

This is one of those places you drive by that always has a full parking lot. So yesterday when we could find no other place to eat on the hwy we decided to give it a try. To be fair the service was fast but not the most cherry, the menu was typical road house with some exceptions like cabbage... More

Prices are reasonable, food is ok, floor was sticky but maybe they were having a bad day. The curry chicken seemed very popular.

Visiting relatives in the area we went for dinner to the Haida Way for the curry chicken. This is a local favorite and we were looking forward to the dish we have to have when we are in the area. We had three full orders (one was shared between two) and a single order of curry chicken and prawns. We... More

We had spent the night in Cowichan Bay (south of Duncan) and we're taking a leisurely route north and looking for a old fashioned diner style breakfast, you know where you can order your eggs how you like them, get your coffee refilled as many times as you want, sit at the counter or in a booth and plan your...

We ate dinner here because it was within walking distance of our motel. The food was good, but the place was short-staffed and very busy so the service was slow.
