This has been my favourite restaurant for approx 15 years! I really like the renovations! I recommend the veggie stir fry with rice noddles and black bean sauce.. KFT is amazing! And the chanosos rolls are really really good! Also love the bread with oil dip.. Love love love this place

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

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 warmth. The menu... 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

We had booked a show at nearby Caesars that was to start at 9pm. We booked Chanoso's for 6pm so we could relax and have a nice evening together. It was a cold evening and I actually left my coat on most of the time as we were constantly blasted by cold air every time the door opened. It took... More

Went for lunch in a party of five. The service was good, the food was mediocre. Three of our group are regulars, I believe mostly due to proximity, and they all complained about the inconsistency of the spicy scale from one day to the next. I had the pad Thai and it was mediocre. What was most disappointing was the... More
