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... read more

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

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

Consistently good dishes, some of which are unique to them. Fast and rushed service, likely to maintain high turnover. Fair value.

The place had an amazing variety on the menu for types of palates. I went on a Sunday Evening and it was really busy yet they managed to get the food out on time.

There are quite a number of Congee Queen Restaurants in the Greater Toronto area.. On of those is located at the corner of Don Mills and Steeles Ave. in Thornhill. We had lunch there recently, and as to be expected, the place was packed. Not sure if reservations are accepted, but our friend had reserved a table for us and... More

This was the first time that my wife and I have been the Congee Queen and it definitely will not be the last. The food was exceptionally delicious and the service was terrific. We had cantonese chow mein and shrimp won ton soup. The total bill was just over $20.00 which was very reasonable. I would highly recommend Congee Queen.

This place is still decent after a few years. Prices are okay and portions are a bit on the large side when dining in. The restaurant changed it's take out containers about 1 year ago so that they are much smaller now. If you order take out you will pay the same price but get smaller portions. Not good at... More

Good food, efficient service, reasonable prices. We usually order lots because we like the leftovers. When we get take outs we generally get twice as many sets of utensils as people in our party because we order so much! Some of our favourites are spicy turnip loaf, plain congee with savoury and sweet curlers, beef rice noodles (ho fan), spicy... More
