Delicious food. We do take out. Food is always hot fresh and good sized portions. Our faves are chicken chow mein, beef&brocolli, chicken chop suey, and breaded almond chicken. Prices are about $15-$20 per dish.

Authentic flavors, many locals, generous portions. We greatly appreciated finding this quaint Chinese gem after visiting another Chinese cafe that didn't represent Chinatown at all.

This is my favorite spot in Victoria for Chinese food... its hands down amazing. It is not that easy to spot, I wandered past it many times before a friend took me for an introduction and wow it is worth finding!

The food at Forum restaurant is not really different from any other Chinese restaurant in Greater Victoria. It does an adequate job of feeding you and giving you an event outside of home with family and friends. The food is good for what it does.

The food is quite good, very friendly staff. Very busy, especially during tourist season. Quite a number of bus tours drop by; so I'd recommend a reservation or at least a phone call in advance. If you don't you may have to wait awhile.

This place was recommended by a local. All three of us were happy with our meals but I would categorize this as good food but not a fancy environment. I would go back.
