It offers a wide variety of Chinese food of every kind, from congee to BBQ, dim sums, noodles and rice. Good for any time of the day. Prices are reasonable.

Overall rating is high because the food is consistently good. The only caveat is that depending n time of the day and some of the locations, the quality may not be the same. Based on personal experience, the best time to avoid ordering s late afternoons. Seems the main chefs are off then and food is prepared by perhaps trainees!

Been there several times ..always fast service. The only complaint is there are long waits at time and when this happens , I get the feeling they want you to just eat and run (if you want to sit and relax after the meal, go to the nearest coffee shop) If there are no long line ups though, you can...

We are new to the neighbourhood and wanted to find a good Chinese place local. Gave this one a whirl. Lots of dishes, all very authentic and all very good. The service experience leaves a fair bit wanting. I've eaten at many restaurants in many places and of many different food types. This is the first time I was treated... More

A nice wide variety of menu items! Portions are generous and the food is pretty good! The service left a lot to be desired! Usually fairly busy but that's no excuse for slow service. We receive a few of the dishes we ordered and then it was probably another 30 minutes before our other dishes arrived.

Food always good and consistently cooked. At a reasonable price - very good for congee and fried rice. Service always fast even though there might be lineups during weekends. Highly recommend for any occasion.

My mother and I stopped by for a quick bite a Sunday afternoon and were seated pretty quickly despite how busy the restaurant looked, and with a pot of good but lightly steeped (what I believe to be) green tea. Lots of options of the menu, but we ended up choosing a congee with pumpkin and a fried rice with... More

Ok, the service at this restaurant has been abrupt and rude for a long time. But the food used to be passable. That is now not the case. First, the "tea". I do not think it is tea. It has no flavour. The only resemblance to tea is the colour. It is brown water. Second, from the peculiar "flavours", it... More

On Monday September 6, we went to this location for lunch. We are a party of 6 with two seniors over 90 years old. the time was around 11:30am and the place was half empty as usual. We asked to be seated and they said won't be long. We waited for almost 30 minutes because there was no table for... More

This Congee Queen is one of the best Chinese restaurant in the GTA. Have eaten here many times and ordered takeout and have never been disappointed. The only problem here is that it is very busy all the time and service can be slow at times, but is worth the wait.

Thank hirom107
