Jimmys Kitchen Restaurant review . We decided to try Jimmys Kitchen despite negative reviews we read before going. I have to say the large dining area was clean and nice. We ordered the chicken chow mein, sweet and sour chicken, veggies and white rice. The sweet and sour chicken was tough and sprinkled with sesame seeds that I believe had turned. Sesame seeds go bad real quick. The scant pieces of pineapple were woody. I have to say one piece of pineapple was actually good. The chicken chow mein offered a search to find a few scant noodles at the bottom but the chicken was absolutely flavourless and bland. By far, the white rice was the best part of the meal. When I mentioned to the manager that this was the worst Chinese food Ive ever eaten she got angry and showed me a copy of Okanagan Life magazine where it was voted the best restaurant. However, it was voted best for Thai, not Chinese food. Let me tell you a little about Okangan Life. Years ago, to be eligible for best whatever it just happened that you also were an advertiser with Okanagan Life. Not sure if that is the case today, but that is the history. If your are planning on Chinese, I would suggest buffets and take out delis, all MSG free over a nice seating arrangement. By the way, for being best restaurant, I only saw a hand full of people, in an establishment that looks to hold around 100 plus, on a Saturday evening.
