Had a most delicious grilled cheese and fries here. The menu is varied: from old classics (as I enjoyed) to lots of delicious Indian inspired dishes. The soup is homemade and excellent. Prices are comparable. Service is friendly and efficient. A new Prince Rupert favourite

always good I like to eat there once a week for lunch and it is usually busy then so I like to go just before 12:00. They also do catering for wedding and I have had the food there and it was also great.

I love this place. Food is made fresh daily; very flavourful. They'll even spice your meal to your preference - mild to spicy hot. Enjoy real Indian cuisine. Small, quaint room. Excellent service. Reasonable pricing.

The Fresh Onion is located in the Ocean Center and is open for breakfast and lunch during week days (8AM-4PM). I finally had an opportunity to try this place the other day and, I have to say, I'm sad I don't get to come here very often. The staff are very friendly; the food is FRESH and everything is made...

Kind of off the beaten path, but SOOOO worth it! Thai Green Curry, Butter Chicken, chili, quesadillas and crepes for dessert! I wish we were staying longer; we would totally come here again! The people who work here are incredibly friendly too.

We had lunch there and the menu was limited but we took the butter chicken and tandoori chicken. They were very helpful and good service. The portions were good and price wise very good. Both dishes come with rice and naan bread.

This a great place to just run in and grab a packaged lunch to go or sit down and have ordered meal prepared. The food is so good because it tastes like home made and is fresh every day.
