“Specialty is lobster”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed January 25, 2014

We've been coming to Hua Sang for years anytime we have a craving for lobster in black bean sauce either dine in or takeout and we have greatly enjoyed it. Recently Dec 2013 and Jan 2014 we had take out. We were very disappointed,there was hardly any lobster meat, some of the claws and the shell of the head was just filled with flour and even the sauce did not have the same taste. So I learned from one of the staff that the size of the lobster is one and a quarter pound, although the price have gone up. It use to be a pound and a half. This review is only for the lobster dish since it is their specialty and that's is the only reason we eat at Hua Sang.

“Excellent Chinese Food”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 14, 2013

If your ever in the Toronto area, you need to give this place a try! Definitely one of the best chinese food places in the area. Got to the resturant around 6pm on Friday, no wait for a a total of 15 people. Food came out real quick. Definitely have to try the 2 lobster special, snails in black bean sauce, chicken in a pot, combination pan fried noodles, crispy beef, and deep fried squid. You wont be disappointed.

“Long-standing favourite”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 5, 2012

I've been coming here for well over a decade, and I still enjoy this place. The food is good and well priced, and the prices are unbeatable. Service is perfunctory, but frankly this is to be expected and welcomed as part of the experience of eating at a Chinese restaurant.

“excellent meal and good value”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 18, 2012

We decided to come to this restaurant after passing it the night before and finding it full with a line out the door. We attended on a Monday evening when it was quieter. The lobster, steamed vegetables and fried rice were very good. The service was also good, and the price was more than reasonable.

“Don't care attitude of Server”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed May 9, 2011

We ordered lobster and it was good so were the other items. Service was quick and good. But server did not apologize when his hand brushed the side of my head and ruffled my hair accidentally. It was like nothing happened. Seemed that he did not care what customers would think of the resto. If I had the choice I would eat in a quiet western type resto where staff usually are pleasant and caring. I was surprised to hear that this resto was closed sometime ago for hygienic reasons. It is my 2nd time to visit. Might not eat there again.
