What We Tried
Note: Our meal was not sponsored.
We ordered the shrimp dumpling; curry fish balls; fish pancakes; spicy chicken as well as the lychee Vita with vodka.
Food tasted good in general though some items could be executed a bit better. For example, one of our shrimp dumplings came with a broken open wrapper. Service could be a bit better as the staff didn’t check in on us during the meal. I gave the staff some feedback.
I like the overall vibe of what Gong YVR is offering and the food was reasonable considering the dishes are prepared by Yue.
