Still the best Chinese in Calgary

New location near Schanks is a little smaller but quality is still there. Prices have crept up a little but that's true of a lot of restaurants. Service is still very quick - except for Fridays - and portions are a little larger for sit-down than take out. They've been around a long time and with... read more

I have been a customer at Ginger Beef for many years........while they were in Willow Park Village. They have now moved. I went in and ordered take-out today. It was absolutely the worst food I have ever ordered, AND had the privilege of paying for????? It took forever - 25 minutes stretched into 40. I got home, and one of... More

Ginger beef Peking house in Calgary to the best of my knowledge are the actual inventors of ginger beef. I have been coming to this restaurant for years 20 years plus and I've always enjoyed it however my most recent visit last night was a very disappointing experience. First of all the prices are absolutely atrocious most dishes are in... More

We are always pleased with the service and the food at Ginger Beef. The dumplings are awesome, and their other dishes always good. Some days better than others, but never had a less than great meal.

I have been there a few times and this time was quite disappointing. The food was not great and service this time was horrible. The plates are so small for the plates that's on special. Not worth the value. They used to be alot better.

My family and I frequent the restaurant because of the famous Ginger Beef. Likewise, we frequent the buffet lunch whenever we can. At times they had the dim sum as well. At the new location, we've only been back four times during the last year. Hoping that certain food items would get better again. Some are good, there are some... More

Everyone knows this is a staples restaurant in Calgary. They've been around for many years. Food is excellent with a large variety of choices (typical for all szechuan restaurants). Having gotten food on a take-out basis and ate in the restaurant. Staff are efficient and pleasant.

If you are in the area and hungry for some Chinese food but hate the buffets this could be an ok choice. Nothing really special about the dishes we ordered. The hot and sour soup had no dried mushrooms, no pork, and very little taste of sour. The salt and pepper squid was sliced very thick and was tough. The... More

When this restaurant used to be located in the Willow Park Village shopping mall, it was fantastic. After it was sold, and moved to its new Macleod Trail location, with new ownership, it just isn't worth going anymore. It's so sad that the new owner didn't retain the food quality the way it used to be. The Ginger Beef was... More
