We really enjoyed the soup (fish maw) and the dishes of food were all pretty good. We were a bit... read more

Channing's restaurant still has the best Chinese in Owen Sound. It is hard to keep up the 5 star rating it has always received in the past but the food here is still excellent. The spicy chicken and channing wonton soup are untouchable. Always a good choice.

Casual chinese restaurant with excellent food and good wait staff. Always busy. Only street parking but the Metro parking lot is only a block away.

I decided that it would be a take out food night so I ordered the Special Dinner for two. It was probably no more than 12 minutes that I waited before the food was ready. The wonton soup was good as was the chicken fried rice, sweet and sour chicken, honey garlic spareribs and beef and vegetables. There also was... More

Love this place, it has been a family tradition to dine here for years. We have never been disappointed by the quality of the food here ever. I have yet to find Chinese food in any of my travels through Canada or the Sates as good as here.

I think this is the best place in Owen Sound to get Chinese food. They also do a large Take Out business. It is not fancy surroundings, but is very adequate .

We have never eaten in only take out several times. The restaurant itself is dated but the food speaks for itself every time . Our pick up orders have been very fresh and on time. Great quality and portions. Channing also included soy and plum sauces along with fortune cookies into the bag without asking. It is a very popular... More

Definitely a place to enjoy a feast of Chinese food and even enough to take home with you! Our order was taken and brought out to us in a timely manner by a friendly waitress. We ordered a #2 and a #12 with an extra order of shrimp....all was excellent with lots of food with each dinner combo; the Won... More
