Dinner was satisfactory

We were 3 and ordered 5 dishes which was too much so we ended up with a doggie bag to take home. Overall the food is above average and the servings were generous. They are good at their congee soup. While their servings are generous, the quality leaves much to be desired. For example, a meat... read more

Congee Queen is a regular place for me when I am craving Chinese Food that is not Americanized. They have always delivered great food and answer all our questions when we try new dishes. The menu is beyond extensive. Don't worry about any line ups as things move quickly. This is definitely a place where you want to take a... More

My brother raved about this restaurant and frequents it often. So, he convinced us to go with him one Sunday night. The place was packed and since he was well-known, we seemed to get a table much faster than most of those waiting in line. However, the food was bland and disappointing.

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. The place has nice decor and overall ambience, not 5-star finishes by any means, but pleasant in comparison to other Chinese restaurants around town. My wife and... More

Excellent taste, good value, great portions, When you see that most of the Patrons are Asian, you got to think the food must be authentic and good, Parking is also free and available.

I have been here a few times. Apart from the rason d'etre , which is the congee, I am really impressed with the BBQ duck and roasted pork.I took home a whole duck after lunch to great family review! Keep in mind that not all Congee Queen branches serve good BBQ porducts. Just this one.

Ordered congee, veggi chow mein, rice rolls to go. Lots of people waiting in line even for to go orders. Congee and rice rolls were decent but the chow mein was too hard. The weekend dining scene was definitely busy. Plan ahead. Some branches offer delivery from 4-10 pm for purchases over 25 dollars. It opens long hours and has... More

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.
