Very good take out
August 18, 2014

I remember getting take-out from here back in the 1960's with my parents. Recently, on a trip to Ottawa, I decided to try it again and I wasn't disappointed. You are greeted, upon arrival, with a photo of Prime Minister Stephen Harper dining there. I had called in the take-out order ahead of time and it was waiting for me.... more

Pretty good. Not overly greasy or heavy
July 28, 2014

The rice was nice and so were the vegetables. I'm not a big meat eater, so I wasn't a huge fan of the crispy beef. I thought it would be more of a general tao style but with beef. I have to say, it was very crispy...a little too crispy for my taste, but it's probably my fault for not... more

Horrible
June 09, 2014

This is the worst take out I`ve had in years. The rice was greasy. Lemon chicken was some weird pressed meat product. Butterfly shrimp had ham or something fried with it and you had to hunt to find shrimp. Crispy beef was like jerky. I need not go on. There are too many choices in Ottawa to bother with this... more

Did something happen
April 27, 2014

We had lunch at Brother Wu's earlier this month and ordered our favourite lunch special dish, crispy beef with chicken/veges and fried rice. Perhaps this was a one-off, but the crispy beef wasn't the same great crispy beef that keeps me coming back. Overly starchy/floury and not so crispy.
Did something happen? Is this a one-time not-so-good dish of crispy... more

Best Peking Duck
March 19, 2014

We have been going to Brother Wu for Peking Duck for several years now and still find it the best place to sample this dish in Ottawa. We normally go every few months or so. The quality and taste is always consistent. We have tried a few other places but none have been as good.

Great Crispy Beef
February 02, 2014

This restaurant isn't everyone's cup of tea but it sure does it for me! Incredible crispy beef and an array of other great dishes. Parking can be tricky and the wait times a little bit long but the friendly service and food more than compensates for this. The Peking duck was wonderful and this place is one of Steven Harper's... more

Great food
January 09, 2014

The food is great, service is slow. You have to request water and you may or may or may not get it.
Won ton soup amazing Great hot and sour soup. This was my second visit in 2 weeks. for a friends birthday lunch. Will go back because I love the food and just remind myself to be patient. Service... more

Taste over appearance
April 07, 2013

Driving up St Laurent, Brother Wu little building with its rather garish neon sign, belittles the amazing food that comes out its kitchen.
The best General Ts'ao chicken I've ever had.
Same for the Lovers Delight's shrimp and chicken.
Highly recommended.

The Best Szechuan in Ottawa
March 28, 2013

Brother Wu’s has been in Ottawa on St. Laurent for as long as I can remember.
Eugene Wu’s welcoming face is the first thing you see when you enter the now renovated restaurant (OK maybe 5 years ago but I still think it is new). “Welcome and sit anywhere” is the first think that you hear.
The food well the... more

Not recommended
March 10, 2013

There food is oily and disguisting also a "small bowl of rice" is 2$ per person Not worth going. Not my cup of tea and wouldn't recommend anymore going

Authentic Chinese food
February 20, 2013

This is obviously the real stuff because the restaurant was filled with Chinese customers at the tables although non-Chinese arrived to pick up take-out meals. The usual Chinese dishes were offered and the menu items were extensive. The authenticity of the meals meant too greasy and too salty. Service was slow but friendly except for the cashier who surveyed customers... more

My fave chinese place in Ottawa
February 17, 2013

I have 2 friends from Hong Kong who took me here, it is awesome. I have had better service than most appear to get, not sure why. I love the beef noodle soup and dumplings. I haven't made it for dim sum but imagine it would be great. I always figure if you want good Chinese food, go where the... more

I ordered for delivery a week ago. The guy talking on the phone wasn't speaking clear...sounded like he wanted to rush my order. After ordering tangerine chicken, imperial chicken and combo plate 1, he tells me it would take about 45 minutes. And sure enough after 45 minutes has passed by the driver calls and asks me for directions. Now... more

Service aside, crispy beef is best I've tasted
September 04, 2012

The owner, Eugene (aka Brother Wu?), is also the lunch waiter which makes for slow service when the restaurant gets busy and it does. But the waiting does allow you to absorb the decor which probably hasn't changed in decades. That's part of the charm of the place. I call it unassuming and unpretentious.
Brother Wu's is purported to be... more

Good news: Authentic Chinese food; bad news: authentic Chinese service
April 22, 2012

First, I'll establish my bona fides: Chinese-Canadian who grew up with a father who was gourmet Chinese chef; originally from Toronto but now living in Ottawa. Past gourmet tourist in China. I know my Chinese food. By Ottawa standards, this restaurant serves up authentic Chinese dishes at quite decent quality and prices. I won't comment on North American Chinese food,... more

Good food, slow service
October 26, 2011

Pretty good szechwan food at this place. We ordered the peking duck on a few occasions and for Ottawa standards, it is pretty good.
We've also had lunch here, and although it can be a little oily, is good.
Service can be quite slow, so be prepared for that.

Avoid this place like the plague
October 28, 2010

They might have had a few good dishes in the past, but this is a restaurant that should just give up and close down. The service is appalling-we had to wait 15 minutes just to get cups to drink our tea. The same level of service also applies to their take-out. They are obviously not equipped to do both. Are... more
