A great choice for take out

We've ordered take out from So Good on a few occasions. Each time the food has been nicely presented, tasty and fresh. Our friends are always impressed. Took us a long time to find good Chinese in Ottawa, but definitely recommend this place.

I just went there with my wife. Had the beef with black bean sauce. Definitely not he best black bean sauce I have ever had. Great price too.

We've been going here for years, and the food is consistently delicious! The staff is very accommodating for those adhering to a gluten free diet, and the owner, Peter, is super friendly! The General Tao Chicken is a must-try.

This is an unassuming little cafe, no style to speak of - much like many of the little cafes we frequent in Hong Kong - small, oil cloth on the tables ... nothing special in decor. We went here for lunch because they advertize Hong Kong style milk tea ... it was just tea with milk, it bore no resemblance... More

The food was very good. The staff were very friendly and attentive. The egg plant and spicy ground pork was to die for as was the Malaysian seafood. The salt and pepper tofu not to be missed. Un pretentious and friendly.

This has to be one of the smallest restaurants I have ever eaten in and in the "Old days" would be called a "hole in the wall" operation. Don't let size and looks deceive you. This is a very, very good place to eat if you can get in. Reservations are definitely needed. Next time we are in Ottawa we... More

Our family loves this restaurant. With 3 family members with celiac disease, we thought we'd never be able to have delicious Chinese food again. Well, the So Good staff is very careful with our food and we can enjoy a myriad of scrumptious dishes at this restaurant!! The service is always first rate and the food is delicious!!
