Had been to a similar restaurant and was pleased. Long line up. Waited. Sait down. Large variety on the menu. saw large food portions at adjacent tables. We received very small food dishes. .we are non Asian, those around us were asian. Most patrons in the restaurant were asian. . I am sure that was the restaurants policy?

The congee is warm and flavourful with many options. Varied warm dishes with great options for different price ranges and tastes. The service is good.

I was impressed when I tried this restaurant several years ago. My barometer for Chinese restaurants is when a large crowd is in the dining area, which tells me the food is delicious.

Avoid busy time and will enjoy your good food and service. It is better to reserve seat before you go. List all your dishes before you order.

Congee queen used to serve hot and tasty meals the last few times I ate here. Unfortunately the quality has deteriorated and it is now riding on past fame. Over crowded, tasteless dishes being served - the soup was almost cold when served.

I have dined here many times and the food is consistently delicious, colourful, plentiful and authentic. Service is quick and quality is great. Although the place is always busy, the wait staff are professional and attentive. Take out is just as delicious!
