“Taste treat at the wonton”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 7, 2013

There were about 14 of us at one round table and the food was rotated on the centre, a great opportunity to eat previously untried dishes.

The food was very good , and the service was extremely polite and efficient.

I will definitely go again

There was also a parking lot for guests which was handy in the particularly busy part of the west end of Ottawa

“Don't miss this place for fine quality Chinese fare”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 9, 2013

This was my first time at the Won Ton, although it has been a fixture in Ottawa for many years. It definitely won't be my last meal there. I went with friends who have been regulars there for some time and were very familiar with the menu.
There were four of us and five regular sized dishes (yes, they provide each menu item in regular and large sizes). Two of us began with soups - vegetable and won ton. Both looked and tasted delicious. The other two had egg and spring rolls, yet another good choice. Only one of the main dishes was spicy - our older stomachs can no longer tolerated the hot and spicy fare that is the norm for Szechuan food. The vegetables were firm and crisp - not one soggy piece found. Chicken and pork dishes left nothing to be desired. The scallops with vegetables and cashews were my personal favourite despite the fact that the young lady next to me started picking out the cashews. The wine, liquor and beer list is not extensive but more than adequate. Service was excellent. The food arrived promptly and hot. The servers were efficient and friendly. There are tables of many sizes that will accommodate any group. This is a family-owned and operated establishment and it shows. The ambience is very pleasant. The washrooms impeccable. The parking lot was full but street parking was available. However, there is only one downside for some. Although it was not an issue for us, there are a few steps at the entrance and the washrooms require the use of stairs to the basement. Located in a trendy section of West Wellington with a variety of boutiques and other retail establishments to visit. In summary, great quality and good value.

“Brutal service ... average Chinese food”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 2, 2013

Our recent dinner at the Won Ton House was a so-so experience. The food was okay with the best dishes being the Moo Shoo Pork and Kung Pao Chicken. The rest - including the spring rolls and Sate Beef - were either overcooked or too salty. The worst aspect was the service. It was appallingly slow and at no time were any apologies or even excuses offered. From the time we ordered it took 85 minutes for our main courses to be served (after a long wait for appetizers). Our dining mates stated that this wasn't the first time they had experienced very slow service. While I'm not that familiar with Chinese restaurants in Ottawa I'm sure one can do much better.

“The food and atmosphere are excellent”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 10, 2012

This is a great restuarant and one of the originals in Ottawa. I have been visiting them since they were back on Richmond Road 30 years ago. They have a very broad and varied menu and the owners take a hands on pride in all that is served up. highly recommended.

“Great service! Great food!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 20, 2012

We have been going to this restaurant for years and Vicky and Tom are tops .. they are personable and funny - the food is wicked good. Terrible to see some grouch using his time to push their rating down - makes me wonder about the value of Trip advisor.
