“Charming, lovely music and expert service.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 19, 2013

I recommended this restaurant to my daughter and son in law,1st anniversary, and they just loved it. He was most impressed by the service, very friendly people and the food presentation. They both had Chines beer which they never tasted and found it wonderful. They were both glad that we had recommended this great place.

“I'd order it all again!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 15, 2013 via mobile

This is a place we always bring our guests. Thai noodle soup was excellent with so much fresh seafood and vegetables it's a meal on it's own. Very fresh egg rolls. The chef cooks everything just right. Helen is the most gracious hostess ever. Once again the calm beautiful surrounding made for another wonderful night. Thank you

“Really?”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed May 13, 2013

Small bowl of Thai noodle soup and a spring roll was $23.11, plus tip, this came to $27.73. Let's see... bland broth, 3 medium shrimp, 3 small bay scallops, assorted mushroom pieces, a few vegies, and a spring roll with a chewy bottom (sitting a while?).
I was not impressed at all... anyone for Pho?!?

“First Class Dinner”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 7, 2013

The Chicago is the best Chinese in town and although the menu prices are rather on the high side, the quality and quantity of food is excellent, the atmosphere is top notch and you are looked after as if you were the only customer in the restaurant. It is not really the place to go if you want a high speed meal but one to go for a leisurely and enjoyable evening.

They organise feasts from time to time, offer a selection of lunch-time special dishes and have a take-out service.

“Super Spring Feast”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 26, 2013

My friend and I had a very delicious supper at the Chicago Cafe on Thursday Apr 25.
Well prepared and presented and great environment. Favouite dish was the Red curry beef with Chinese Broccoli. Hosts Helen and Ed are a great example of the very best in hospitality in North Bay and Ontario.
