I love traditional Chinese food, and Neptune never disappoints. They are my comfort food Chinese restaurant in Richmond because over the years they held their consistency. What they excel in is their Congee, Noodle and Rice. They are also good at dinner combos, which you can pick between 2,4,6,8 dishes within a set menu, and it comes with soup and rice.
The first thing we ordered was Squid Balls in Fish Broth . I am not sure if they include this on the menu but it’s definitely recommended. Clean fish broth with tasty squid balls. To be honest, I only order this so I can taste the soup.
Spicy Shrimp: Shrimp marinated in a spicy sauce, and then chilled to serve. This is the perfect appetizer to an Asian beer.
Free Range Chicken: its leaner and taster than traditional chicken IMO. Comes with ginger / green onion and sweet and sour dip. I recommend scooping the ginger /green onion sauce in your rice.
Braised Cod Fillet with Celery / Beancurd. This is part of their new value menu. As expected, you will not get large servings when it’s $7.99.
Spicy Stir-Fried Green Beans: This is quite a tasty veggie dish. Thai chilli peppers with minced beef.

I wish I can feature more dishes from the menu of this restaurant, but I was too full to do so. Just do me a favor and look at what other people are eating before ordering. You cannot expect the sweet and sour pork to be good when it’s a traditional Chinese eatery.
