    Four of us ate at Wild Tangerine, after it was recommended to us. The food was delicious, and we all loved the variety! We each had something different, which gave us the opportunity to try each other's dishes. The staff were very attentive to our needs, and we enjoyed the relaxing decor. I would definitely recommend this restaurant to others.

    Wonderful and creative combinations. We started out with the shrimp lollipops and the octopus salad. Perfect portion sizes and timing. We both had the duck special served over stir fry baby asparagus. Loved it but agree with other reviews where it could be served with a starch instead of that being an extra. We had wild rice and the gnocchi, both pretty good but maybe a little weak in taste and presentation compared to the mains. Desserts did not disappoint! Ginger pudding and the brownie. The only things that I can offer to better this restaurant are the napkins (get cloth!), the service attire (felt like I was in booster juice) and the entrance (cluttered and whats with the teddy bear??). Loved the clean an modern decor!!

    It is worth going to the restaurant just because of the owner: He is so passionately explaining the food concepts, the specials and where he gets his ingredients from that you have the impression he cooks himself (although he is part of the service team). The Asian style food is presented creatively and the amazing combinations are always delicious. We have visited the restaurant now multiple times when we are in Edmonton and it was never a disappointment!

    What a wonderful surprise. We are from out of town and thought this was another restaurant. So, were surprised when we arrived at the address. It was packed, but we got a romantic table in a corner. Menu was very unique, and the food tasty and nicely presented. Perfect evening, highly recommended.

  • My dish was okay
    viking2dinner
    Dined on 2/14/2014
    I enjoyed my overall experience & would definately go back; I won't order this dish next time I go though. I ordered the: Judy’s famous Thai Green Curry with Prawns & Tortiglioni. Presentation was good, and the dish was nice & hot for a noodle bowl. However, the pasta was completely mismatched for the dish & totally starched the dish out. The pasta was like penne and starchy; with a delicate dish of the seafood. I looked at the other dishes around other tables & they all looked good, so will try something different next time.

    This was our first visit to Wild Tangerine and we will definitely be back! We enjoyed the shrimp lollipops as an appetizer. My husband loved the Lemon Chicken Breast for his entree. While I liked the Pineapple Chicken Stir-fry, I would have preferred the stir fry be placed on a bed of drier rice - the dish was a little too wet for me. The chicken was delicious though. The desserts were heavenly - we had the Gingered Bread Pudding and the special Forkfest dessert - Banana Cream Pie. There was so much thought and care put into these dishes. The service was flawless - friendly, unobtrusive and quick. We also liked the atmosphere - very quiet.

    This placehad really good good but if you have a larger appetite as an athlete prepare to spend lots for very little. I had the pineapple chicken stir fry($22) and it was enough for me but my husband got the lemon chicken and it wasn't nearly enough. It didn't come with rice, just the chicken and some shaved carrots and a tiny bit of bokchoy. If you order that order a side to go with it or you'll leave hungry. For the price I think a side should have been included ($29). We also had the shrimp lollipops ($9) to start and they come on groups of 3 and they will up sell you another ($3) if you're in a group of two or more. I enjoyed my meal but not the price for what we received.

  • New Year's Eve dinner
    OpenTable Diner Since 2012
    Dined on 12/31/2013
    A group of us went for a New Year's Eve dinner to Wild Tangerine - the ambience was great - very quiet and serene for potentially a loud evening. Wilson, the owner, was there and spent some time chatting with us about the food. The service was excellent - very accomodating. We had great appetizers including a lobster croquette, shrimp and zucchini salad. Three of us had the sea bass special - great sauce. The sea bass was very filling also. And we ended up with the creme caramel. No question that Wild Tangerine has the best creme caramel that we have ever had in the last 20 years. So very enjoyable evening of good company and food.

    Service was on point all evening from the friendly greeting at the door to the thoughtful menu recommendations for those with dairy sensitivities. We enjoyed the lollipop shrimp and green onion cake to start and diverged in our menu selections. I believe the star of the night was the featured beef cheek: my friend's rapturous eye-rolling said it all for me. I tried the green curry this time; while the curry itself was tasty and well-portioned with large prawns and assorted vegetables, I think I would have preferred a different starch accompaniment than rigatoni. All said, I was proud to share this local restaurant with my friends, 3 of whom were first-timers and also Oliver residents. I know we'll all be back.

    Service was slow; there was only one wait staff for an entire restaurant of at least 12 tables, but this could be attributed to the fact that there was a major snowstorm that day, so I'm uncertain if this is a common problem. Restaurant was cold; the majority of diners were wearing their jackets.

    My husband and I have a monthly dinner arrangement with another couple, and this month it was our turn to pick the restaurant. We came across the Wild Tangerine on open table and based on a friend's review decided to give it a try. We were not disappointed! The staff was extremely friendly and helpful, the food was outstanding and the ambience was great. My top picks... try the shrimp lollipops and the white wine sangria. Both will have me coming back in the future!

    My wife and I were in Edmonton on business and used the Open Table app on our iPhone to find Wild Tangerine. We liked the look of the place and the reviews from previous diners were good, so we thought we'd give it a try. What a treat it was. The reservation was in the computer when we arrived and we were seated promptly by a very friendly server who took care of us with great attention to detail. I tried the pork (as another reviewer had raved about it) and it was fantastic. My wife had the beef and was totally happy with every part of the meal. And....what is a night without dessert. We tried the East meets West and loved it. Both of us would highly recommend this little gem of a restaurant. If only it were in Calgary.........hmmmm.

    When I glanced at the menu I was unsure whether I really wanted to try any spin on Cha-Siu pork. I took the plunge and wow, it was delicious! Every menu item we ordered had some sort of twist with tangerines and the textures, looks, and tastes were all fantastic! The ambience was very modern and clean. There was only one person at front of house serving, taking orders, and seating. The foyer area at the front left us awkwardly waiting for a little too long, but it was well worth the wait.

    Planned a simple dining experience figuring two hours was plenty. Boy I was wrong. Service was incredible slow and the place wasn't even busy. If this was a high end resturant you would expect a slower pace with excellent service, but the atmosphere is more of a bistro style with poor service. The food is tasty, but it is a little odd to see a bigger alcohol menu than food menu. With all the alcohol on the menu you would think they are more of a lounge than a resturant. Prices were high for the atmosphere and service.
