Can not say enough good things about this restaurant, from the moment you walk in, to the ever so friendly staff, best Bon Bons in town, and the list goes on...will never order from anyone else!

So me and my family went and got takeout here, we ordered ahead and waited in the parking lot. Then a nice lady came to our car and gave us our meal, not only was the food warm and fresh but I was delicious too....This will definitely be my go to restaurant.More

We thought we would try Mr. Chinese for the first time but as it turns out it was going to be the last time as well. When we placed the order we were told that the meal would take 1 1/2 hours for delivery. We...figured that was a long time to wait but it was probably going to be worth it for fresh cooked food. Were we wrong! The food was delivered within 35 minutes by a rude driver who did not have a mask on her face. We tipped her generously anyway. When we opened up our food selections everything was cold. The white rice was hard and clumpy, the 'sizzling bon bon spareribs' were anything but hot. They were cold and overcooked with very little meat on them. The egg rolls were soft and mushy and whatever was in the spring rolls was inedible. The sweet and sour chicken balls tasted like they were prefabricated and the sauce that was meant to be put on the balls consisted of a cold jellied substance. The only thing we ate was the Mr. Chinese special fried rice and the garlic spareribs. Everything else went into the garbage. This food was way too expensive for its very poor quality...never again will we eat here!More

My husband and I ordered food to our motel. The food was good enough, but not worth the price tag. They didn't include napkins or cutlery. Had to eat my rice with my sweet and sour sauce lid. The menu has very little variety ad...well. It's missing signature chicken and beef dishes. They don't even have sesame or general tso's chicken....More

We had a very large order for 15 people so it was expensive. The food was decent as was the service. Despite the large order, it was made within 30 minutes. Bon bons were very large. We used to make them half the size when...my parents owned a restaurant.More

was visiting from Calgary, and we stayed at a hotel on Arthur st.we ordered two meals for delivery.mine was number 74. It was so awful it went into the garbage.The meal consisted of soggy celery, with soggy broccoli mushy dark mushrooms and watery sauce with...5 or 6 small nuggets of chicken. Our other meal had tasteless fried rice and gristly bonbons ..all this for 55 dollars including a 5 dollar tip. There were no napkins or cutlery. Delivery was prompt.More

I ordered delivery for a special birthday to be delivered at 5 p.m. When the food hadn’t arrived by 6 I phoned and apparently the girl that took the order the previous day, forgot about it! Food therefore did not arrive until 6:30 p.m., one...and a half hours late!!!More

The food is always amazing at this place. Consistently exactly the same as the last visit :) The service is friendly and attentive :) The parking however is atrocious. Not enough room by far. Very tight. Also styrofoam take out containers are horribly bad for...the environment. At least they serve the water with no plastic straws, so good start!More

I stopped in for a quick lunch, had the consume & noodles, ok flavour. Had sweet & sour ribs with chicken & vegetables. The ribs were breaded, after a few bites, I now know why. Each rib had a substantial amount of fat and grizle....As for the vegetables, it's like the cook took from the wrong container - portioned verses compost. I had ends of bok choy, three pieces of broccoli with brown ends, a few thin slices of carrot. Not sure what happened here, maybe still paying for the new building? Family troubles? a few years back when the mother was there & she was at the helm, including the sister up front, the food was better quality. Found a better restarant not too far - Lucky's which will be my go to Asian.More

We visited with family, we had a birthday on a weeknight and the little one wanted Mr Chinese. We had a great experience, the food was excellent and service was above and beyond. We didn’t announce the birthday to the staff but they must have...overheard us and they sang happy birthday to my 7 year old daughter with a candle and a treat. Very nice, new favourite for our family. Thank you !!More

Sorry, can't help you. I just reviewed the place, I have nothing to do with it. In fact, I live in Calgary.
