Not sure why this place is so popular. I find the Jadeland much better in service, quality, presentation and most of all, cleanliness. The plates are old and mismatch. Tables are dirty and I don't see any pride from the owner. We ordered some noodle dishes but they were over cooked and pretty much falling apart as I picked them... More

I've been going to So Good Restaurant for many years now and I have to say they haven't been surpassed by any other restaurant of its kind. The service is always great and faces familiar. It's family and Peter, the owner and his wife, as well as many others, have been serving us for a long time. They have excellent... More

Went to so good with my wife, we were lucky to get a table without a reservation and, as always the food was excellent. I have never had a dish there that was not excellent. The decor is not fancy but you go there for the great food. A lot of people order take out from there as well. Some... More

This is the place to drop in after a movie with friends, hopefully get a table and to enjoy some very delicious freshly made Chinese dishes - always great specials on the board. The menu is extensive offering Chinese and other south east Asian favourites. The service is pleasant in a very casual atmosphere. Prices are reasonable. Street parking is... More

This is our family's go-to place for tasty Chinese food in Ottawa. We've always been pleased with it and our last experience was no different. We love the Hunan beef, Shanghai noodles and Wu Se chicken. We just wish Peter - So, hence the name - was there more often!

We had a little family reunion in Ottawa with nieces and nephews the last week of August. The service was great and the food quite tasty. Not expensive and easy to find. Certainly not fancy, but very welcoming! Would go there again for sure!

If you're hungry and want great-tasting Chinese food but aren't finicky about the ambiance or décor of the restaurant, this is a good place to go. They have an extensive menu and if you don't see or know what you want, they'll ask you questions to help identify the best choice and they'll cook up whatever you want. They have... More
