“Excellent Hong Kong style Chinese fast food”
Reviewed June 19, 2014

This is a great restaurant to stop off for a quick meal. The menu has incredible variety (perhaps almost too much). I like to stick with the traditional won ton noodles, red bean drink, and they have incredible roast duck!! The service is very efficient, staff friendly, decor simple and clean and prices are very reasonable. If you never have a chance to go to Hong Kong but would like to experience what good fast food consists of, try this great restaurant.

“crowded and busy restaurant”
Reviewed January 7, 2014

It was a casual restaurant with small tables, not so comfy to sit on. However; it was a very new place with bright and clean interior. I found it a bit noisy inside for dinner, perhaps is more appropriate for quick lunch or brunch. It was very difficult for me to talk to my family during the meal time as the environment is so loud.

Food is fine but not much options and price is a bit higher than expected

“Good and cheap food!”
Reviewed December 5, 2013

It was around 1:30 on a Saturday when we arrived to find it was more than half full. The restaurant isn't large but it's clean and bright. There are booths and some tables, but not many large tables.

We were greeted warm by a familiar server and tea was brought in large cups instead of the small tea cups. It's likely easier so they don't have to be refilled as frequent as they don't leave a tea pot on the table. We ordered 2 dishes; shrimp wonton noodle soup and assorted chow mein and I think the price was about $20 for both.

The soup had about 6 large shrimp wontons and the broth was tasty. Very tasty! The chow mein had veggies, seafood, meat, and crispy noodles. My mom and sister liked it.

The bathroom was a little messy with papers on the floor but they did have soap which is a good sign so you know staff should be using it!

“Clean and nice, but a little over-priced”
Reviewed August 12, 2013

I really like Cafe De Tropika and have taken quite a few people here. The food is similar to what you would find at places like Good Buddy, but the presentation is better, the food looks and tastes fresher and the restaurant is impeccably clean. Quite the treat, but slightly on the expensive side for the quantity of food you get.

“Good quality food, Nice atmosphere”
Reviewed July 15, 2013

This restaurant is located on Calgary Trail and is easily accessible with plenty of parking.

Though the portion size of the dishes are a bit smaller than other Chinese restaurants the food is very good quality. The prices are a little high considering the portion size, but it is worth it, in my opinion.

The restaurant is clean, spacious and great for small groups. There are no round tables, so it makes sharing dishes with large groups a little more difficult.

I would highly recommend this restaurant. The food is delicious!

P.S. Try the BBQ duck. It's the best duck I've ever had in the city.
