We tried a lot of things off the menu, and they were all excellent!
Went there on a date. Chose to sit at the bar.
Had a really positive experience.
Amazing food, very friendly service, and beautiful ambiance and energy.
Great food and atmosphere. Food is well-priced. Worth checking out.
As a vegan was pleased there were several items to choose from, all of them delicious!
The fusion vibe is strong with this one. During non-club hours it's a very nice place to be for a "Chinese restaurant". Definitely different from you usual suspect of yumcha and family restaurants in the neighborhood. The food is very well prepared and tastes great. Meat is succulent and flavoring is just-so. We were sat at a table with a view to the skylight but the skyline is covered by litter and it was so filthy that we were taken aback from it. Otherwise the interior has a very Asian city look to it and it's got great attention to detail.
The service and food was amazing !It is a great hidden place in chinatown .
Amazing food and service... Will definitely be coming back
Looks can be deceiving...viewing SW from the outside, I was a bit underwhelmed. Upon entering the place, however, I was exposed to a delightfully ambient restaurant. Julie, our waitress was welcoming, friendly and helpful. The bottle of grenache went well with veggie dumplings, fried rice, tofu and cauliflower and roasted Brussels sprouts. Highly recommend this place.
Great little place in Chinatown. We were blown away by the flavors and received excellent service! Try the Brussel sprouts, you won’t be disappointed.
My two friends and I loved Sai Woo. It was our first time there and we were impressed by the atmosphere and the food. However, after I left, I realized that my vegetarian chop suey had a scant amount of vegetables when the menu had promised lots. My friends loved their food and so did I at the time but was too busy visiting to notice that the chop suey was almost all noodles.
I was super disappointed. Two days prior, I called to change my group reservation from 6pm to 7pm, and was told that because they had a large number of groups that night it wasn’t possible.
When we arrived we were put downstairs in the basement, for my 30th birthday, and it was as if the restaurant just opened. It was completely dead until about the time we left at 8pm.
Super disappointing and certainly didn’t make my 30th birthday memorable.
I only go to Sai Woo on special occasions and it is usually to host out of town guests (special relatives or family). Every time I go there the experience gets better all the time. The Mantou buns were amazing! This time we also ordered a couple of bottles of white wine and had great service from Kate. Sally (I believe that's her name) should keep up what she is doing. I only wish I had more time to go to Sai Woo more often.
This is a lovely, well thought out space with great food in the heart of Chinatown.
The flavours are fusion Asian, beautifully cooked and presented. Lovely staff and nice atmosphere to round out a great dining experience.
However, over-sauced and over salted (coming from someone who LOVES salt and extra sauce)
A bit loud for conversation
Over-all would return / recommend
Very enjoyable from beginning to end.
Interesting flavorful dishes, attentive service in a smart setting. Prices are reasonable. Family style servings popular with group meals. My only negative is that many of the dishes have similar preparations and taste the same. But I would gladly return.
Amazing ! :D
Definitely my new favorite spot in Vancouver
Fabulous night with great friends, and a wonderful experience
This was my third visit to Sai Woo. The service was outstanding and the ambiance was perfect for a date night. We had drinks and more Han enough food and the bill for the four of us was extremely reasonable.
Great food and service!
fantastic food and atmosphere- would highly recommend!
We had such a great time at Sai Woo! It was a quiet Thursday evening so it felt like private party! Food was great and most of all our waiter Jackie D was amazing!!! Will def come again!!
Modern adventure in Old Chinatown!
I was there in late January and thoroughly enjoyed the food, atmosphere and experience, this past Saturday was equally excellent. Can't wait to go back!
Very good food at reasobable cost
Rice with duck was superb
lovely decor and ambiance. quite noisy for sure, but very pretty, and food was delish.
The food was a great fusion between the different Asian flavours. Ambience was good and the service was very friendly.
Really great. And nice to be able to make a reservation unlike many comprabile restaurants.
The food was really good. Last time we were here it was quite good but it seems like they are getting better and better. I also like that the prices are reasonable for the quality of the food. Lots of dishes are available for less then $20 and they are great for sharing.
Loved the place. Great flavours /such a cool spot
Don’t expect great libations - None existent wine selection. Poor cocktail choices. Just decent food - do not be fooled by “family style”. Some dishes really lacked depth of flavor (curry is dry rub only) while others were terrific (ribs). Staff were really nice and friendly. It’s meh - won’t be back.
The food was quite good, served hot, promptly and with friendly service. We also were given a nice window table with our Open Table reservation.
Second time there. This time we were joined by two other couples. It was even better this time around. Way to go, Sai Woo!
Terrific food, outstanding service. Dining room was clean and stylish.
We asked our server to pick food for the table and all of the choices were hits!
Looking forward to coming back soon.
Awesome meal. Excellent food. Great service.
Great place for happy hour before the concert. Super tasty food.
Can't say too much. The food was unique and tasted great, the interior was up to date, and I had a great time.
The food was average and expensive for the quality, but the interior decor here is on point.
Our waitress was very friendly and accommodating, however, the drinks and food came out slow (with no other diners) and very salty. Will not be returning to this restaurant.
