This was the third time I visited the restaurant.
The standard of food had remained good.
As has been noted by the previous reviewers, the price is reasonable.

I would like to mention different things from what has already been reviewed.

This place is small, so they have no qualms placing total strangers at the same table during busy periods. This may be ok in Hong Kong, but I am extremely uncomfortable sharing the same table with strangers.
A tip to avoid being in that predicament is to either go in a large group so as to occupy the entire table yourselves, or go during off peak hours.
After 2 pm is good, this is when there is practically no crowd, but the service is still good. If the cooks are having their meals, your order arrives later, but no deal breaker as it is still faster than any Western restaurants.

On a recent trip to Toronto, went to Chi's twice with my girlfriend. Had two great meals at quite reasonable prices. The first indication of this being a very good restaurant is the clientele - mostly Chinese. While Chinese people will be drawn to a good deal, they don't eat bad food; you won't see them at the ubiquitous (and horrible) Chinese buffets which have proliferated everywhere. And in fact the food we had here in our two meals was close to excellent.

Our first meal was a Friday lunch (note that there are lunch specials M-F - you have to go to the very end of the menu to find them - and they also include a Hong Kong tea or coffee which you have to ask for). We shared a bowl of seafood congee and had Singapore noodles. The congee was full of seafood and the noodle dish was seasoned just as one would want for this standard. We went back on Sunday after Chi's opened (no lunch special) and had another bowl of seafood congee (not as much seafood but I thought the consistency was better) and a dish of seafood with noodles (with ho fun noodles - the wide rice noodles). Very good on both.

I also note that the servers in Chi's are happy and even playful - a very good sign. Happy workers means a good place to work and which also generally means they are proud of their food and of people liking it. We sat at the more communal round table on Friday and had nice conversations with the other folks at the table. The restaurant was quite busy both days with even a short line at times on Friday.

Chi's is located in a outdoor strip mall catering to Chinese and Koreans mostly. I also recommend the large Chinese/Asian grocery store in the same mall and which has pretty much all you would want in a very nicely presented atmosphere.

Highly recommended.

This is not a fancy place but the food is excellent. The service is fast and friendly. The food comes out quickly and is served hot. This place offers a number of authentic dishes and gets busy quickly. The tables turn over so be patient.
