Went there last night for chinese food and it was great. We ordered a dinner for 4 and it had a good variety of food. The wonton soup there is superb. Actual shrimp in there. We had crispy noodles and they were great. 30 years at the same spot can't be all wrong.

I have been a patron of On Loc since it first opened. Over the decades I have tried many of their offerings, but especially like their Shredded Chicken and Bean Sprouts and Lemon Chicken dishes. The restaurant has usually been quite full, which is a great sign. Friday evening a pal treated me to the Lemon Chicken, Fried Rice and... More

We've been coming here for about 15 years and it's been my standby for a quick solo lunch when I'm out on the road looking for a quick comfort food fix. As a vegan tryannabee, I had to get the wonton soup cravings out of my system and this is where I finally did it. I realized the best thing... More

Here's the main point. A big plate of noodles (Singapore style vermicelli) is $8.90, tax included. I also got complementary Chinese soup and bottomless tea. I could not finish the noodles so had about half leftover for another meal. Now, how are they able to stay in business selling a freshly cooked plate of noodles at this price? Answer: By... More

We used to come here regularly 15 years ago and wondered if things have changed. I was expecting cheap and cheerful. Food quality has dropped as noodle dishes tasted of scorched oil , vegetables overdone and tofu/ fish dish overdone with msg. To add insult, prices are about 20% higher for this standard and quantity. So this won't be an... More

I go to this restaurant at least two to three times a week. As per food they make i would give them four out of five and consistency is always there. They make their own won ton dumplings which are delish, roasted pork with bean curds on rice and spicy chicken with deep fried spinach are my two favourites. In... More

Had supper there last night with the family. We have been going to the restaurant for many years and we have found the service and food has been slowly diminishing. The service last night from the waitress was quite disturbingly rude. The counter service (for payment) was almost as bad. No customer service here. Your just another number they chalk... More

This your typical Chinese restaurant. Big, colourful and no fancy decor. You know it's a good restaurant when 99% of the patrons are Chinese. The server was a delightful lady and very accommodating when I asked for extra Chinese mushrooms. The portions are big so if you're with two people, I'd only order two main plates and on appetizer. Highly... More
