Great

They're always fresh and fast. I order take out meat every week and the BBQ is delicious! Fried rice and congees are good. Great prices

This restaurant has all the great dishes that define Toronto's Cantonese cuisine culture, at a reasonable price, and most importantly, served in a clean environment. I'm sure I'll be a regular customer.

This restaurant is located in our neighbourhood and we frequent it often. I am not sure why I have never reviewed it. Perhaps because I think of it as just a local eatery. However, a few weeks ago we had friends, who are pretty fancy folk who live in a high end Yorkville condo, up to our home for drinks... More

The Congee Queen Thornhill serves delicious and consistent food. This is a regular spot for lunch for me and my colleagues as our office is in the area. We've never had a bad meal whether eating in or doing take out. There lunch specials come with a soup and a side of greens - an abundance of food. When eating... More

Service has always been excellent and fast. The staff are very attentive to the needs of customers. Tea pots are refilled promptly and food comes at a very reasonable pace. We came here with an infant and a toddler, and the staff members were attentive when it came to giving us a table that would be convenient for us, bringing... More

Excellent authentic Chinese restaurant in Thornhill aera. I visited this place several years ago when it was opened, and it is still very good when I visited it again last month. Chinese restaurants in Thornhill, Markham and Richmond Hill areas will go out of business very soon if it is not good, because of the fierce competition in these areas.... More

Congee Queen has become a family favourite as it is very close to my parents house. We have visited many times and have never been disappointed by the food. Some of our favorie dishes are the Corn and Crab soup, the General Tao Chicken, Beef and broccoli, and Pad thai.

As a regular (European) person that very often eat Chinese food, I really can say that Congee Queen is on the top of my list. The food is very tasty. The staff is efficient. They have one of the best restaurant managers in the city, named Lara. The majority of the clientele of this restaurant is of east Asian heritage.... More

Congee Queen has six branches in the Toronto area and I always go to their flag ship branch at Steeles Avenue East in Thornhill when I visit the City. It is an independent structure right on the north side of Steeles and is part of a shopping mall with plenty of parking albeit it would be difficult to find a... More

We've eaten at Congee Queen many times. The price is reasonable and the food is quick, hot and tasty. You have to be prepared to wait as it does get very busy and very loud. We tend to go earlier in the evening to avoid the large crowds. There are plenty of dishes to share. The turnip is fantastic and... More
