Typical Canadian-Chinese food. Not bad - not special. I would eat here again - it was tasty and the service was very friendly.

Navigator has the best Chinese food in town. Its a worn down, ugly restaurant but lack of options keep me coming back. If you can get past the dirty, smelly ambiance then take a trip here for the chinese food. The food options are endless...More

A great place for a fairly quick lunch...not the place to sit back and spend the evening, but the food is fine.

Great food, fun atmosphere and wonderful staff all made up for the fact that my burger cost nearly $40 dollars, add a cold one and a tip and you're leaving with one of North America's priciest burger & beer special! But again, considering where you...More

This place should be shut down, but it keeps going and going with the only place in Iqaluit to eat Chinese food. The place is falling apart and dirty (chairs duct-taped seats!) so you take your chances but the food is good!

This is also very good restaurant which serves a large number of Chinese cuisine and other southern delicacies. It provides many quiet gatherings and bring along guess and friends, and families alike. Very good restaurants to eat. There are buffets available which is very good.

The War Wonton is usually pretty good. Indeed it does need a total renovation. It's a staple in the community. Not clear how sanitary it is but we still eat there.

We are a retired couple who are visiting Iqaluit for 3 days in May 2015. We are looking to stay Saturday May 23 Sunday 24 and Monday 25 and leaving on the 26th. We are interested to get a flavour of the Canadian north . Do you have availability ? Please let us know what the rate would be if available. Thank you in advance. Best regards Sandra Spronck
