We have been going to Mandarin Ogilvie for close to four years now. It has become a standby favourite for Chinese food and the number one choice for dim sum. It's quite popular which makes it quite crowded sometimes, especially at dim sum time. The service has always been good and the one guy (not sure he's the owner or manager) always greets you like a friend.
The food is very good and above average compared to other Chinese restaurants. In terms of taste it's at the level of Beijing Legend on Bank, but service is usually a lot faster. Some of our favourites are the tofu and fish dishes which are extremely well done. Portions are not the largest compared to other restaurants but are definitely adequate.
Dim sum is quite good here and probably as good as you would be able to find in Ottawa. Lots of standard fare like shrimp dumplings and rolls and various buns. Some other stuff like congee is also available but you have to ask for it.
Overall a great place for dinner and dim sum.
