Not what it used to be

I started going to Chanoso's about 15 years ago. It was a unique place in Windsor and had a warm, hip feel to it. The menu was simple, but creative, offering customized unique dishes. It was one of my favourite places to dine anywhere. Fast forward to now, and it's a stark location with no sense of... read more

I love going to Chanoso's! They have a great variety on their new menu, and I am happy to see so many vegetarian/vegan-friendly options. I love their Kentucky Fried Tofu (KFT), cauliflower fritters, and red lentil soup. Last time I went, they had a special on spaghetti squash. My partner enjoys their shrimp stir fry and sushi. We are returning... More

I love the fresh tastes and the variety on the menu. Stir drys are one of my very favourite choices. Nice location on Ouellette Ave. Well priced. Make sure to go if in Windsor.

I have been here many times over the past 5 years and it's definitely changed. It used to have more of a focus on sushi (and a more evident 'split' between its two restaurants, Oishii and Chanoso's), and then they started scaling back, physically with their location and then also in their menu (with regards to sushi). Their sweet sauce... More

I have been here a couple times in the last year and every time I went back I was just hoping for a better overall experience. I am not sure what it is there, on paper the place looks great. The menu is awesome, the location is perfect, it almost seems like a great place to go. I hesitated to... More

Not very impressed. While our server was quite polite, the food was far from enjoyable. The new menu is not very impressive at all and to add insult to injury, they are not accepting gift cards from before their renovations. Save your time and go somewhere else.

I have been here several times and always enjoy it! My only problem is the inconsistency of the heat scale. If I order an 8, it could be a 3 or an 8. So the next time you want it spicier you order a 9, because you got a 3 last time you ordered an 8, and it will blow... More

My girlfriend and I thought on celebrating this Valentine's day with dinner at Chanoso's in downtown Windsor. After our plates were served, my girlfriend began to stir her meal. To our surprise, a cockroach crawled out of her food and across her plate. I immediately pick it up with my napkin and called over a manager. She took my napkin... More

When I went here, I was craving Asian food and it had the best looking menu within walking distance from my hotel, so I went in. The place looks nice and cozy, a bit cramped but I've seen much worse. I ordered the pad thai and, honestly, I've had better at a Pad Thai Express and for two-thirds of the... More
