    In the heart of Chinatown an historic storefront conceals the secrets of Sai Woo. Our modern dining and hidden downstairs lounge serve Asian inspired cuisine created with fresh ingredients and surprising, light hearted twists. Cocktails are crafted with precision using top-shelf liquors, fine teas, and exotic fruits. The original Sai Woo Chop Suey first opened its doors in 1925 and flourished as a local hangout for over four decades, preserving some of Vancouver’s oldest history. Our location today brings new life to this historical landmark with a modern and innovative menu. The restaurant is full of original calligraphy artwork and artifacts from when the building opened when many Chinese immigrants lived on the floors above. Sai Woo is a time capsule with an interesting past and intriguing stories. Chef Issac Ko creates a mix of small and large shared plates, including Szechuan Crispy Black Pepper Beef, Fried Cauliflower and Tofu, Korean Scallion Pancakes, and “Chinese Paella”. . Nestled beneath Sai Woo in the Woo Bar, Sai Woo mixes bespoke cocktails and serves up quality local brews to accompany our amazing food. We also specialize in group events and are ranked in the top 20 restaurants in Vancouver by Tripadvisor. Call today to book your date, organize some live music or a DJ, and arrange a menu. Open late Tuesday through Sunday for dinner and late on the weekends.
