I liked it but I found the food rather nondescript. There's a lot on the menu and too much food for one person although it was tasty I thought some of the seafood was originally from frozen stock.

Stopped in for lunch and got dishes off the regular menu. The Channing Chow Mein was amazing -- the vegetables were cooked perfectly and there were a variety of them (mushrooms, cauliflower, broccoli, etc.). The lemon chicken soo guy is to die for. The coating was crisp and the chicken was tender. The fried rice was tasty. All their sauces... More

Ate here tonight- party of 3. Each of us ordered a combination plate. The lemon chicken was Lightly coated, not a thick coating of batter. Large portions, service a little slow , reasonably priced. Place was busy. Would eat here again

My family love Chinese Food. Whenever we are away, we craze tasty Chinese food. Channing's won't disappoint you. The vegetables are always fresh and crisp. It's been one of our haunts for a few years. Until next year, thanks Channing's!

Terrible service -- if there is any service at all; it's a so call Chinese restaurant but it gives you a strong impression that the Asians are not welcome. We visited it today, although there are a lot of vacated seats and two not so busy waitresses but our friendly hello greeting has been completely ignored, we had no other... More

This is a must place to eat Chinese food! I've been going here for years and still highly recommend this restaurant. I recommend this restaurant to others and my favourite feedback is from a Georgetown lady who says her daughter lives in downtown Toronto and dines out alot and says Channings is the best Chinese food she has ever eaten,...

Have eaten there for lunch several times. The lunch menu is well suited for individuals and has about 15 combo options for one person. All the food is wonderful. Be prepared to take some home for your next meal. Prices are very reasonable and staff accomodating.

Our food had wonderful flavor, presentation and texture, but the two servers in the dinging room needed roller skates too keep up. It took forever to be waited on and to receive our food. They could have used 4 servers and possibly a 5th just to manage the to-go orders. Back to the food, perhaps the best wonton soup I've... More
