“Chinatown East Eatery at affordable prices for all”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 18, 2014

Never seen so many food employees inside such a small space! (ten but who's counting?). Friendly service and tasty food. One of the better choices in this Little Chinatown corner. We will return. I am done. The end.

“Typical soup kitchen..”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 17, 2013 via mobile

With the best smoked duck in the city.
Curries are big, spicy and really good.
They have congee and donuts.
Friendliest service in Toronto.
Love this place.
Late night also.

“Excellent and Authentic Chinese Noodles and BBQ at a Great Price”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 9, 2013

Have been coming to the various Toronto Chinatown's frequently and from more than four hours away for many years and was turned on to Ka Ka Lucky situated in Chinatown East by a local last year. Oh, all the years wasted! We now make sure we drive the extra distance to come here every trip. Ka Ka Lucky does not need another good review - it is always busy. They don't need a website. They maybe could use a better name (joke). But I love this place so much I want to add my enthusiastic two thumbs up. It is not the place to come if you want even remotely fine surroundings. It is certainly not fancy and style points do come off for their having an annoying TV on the back wall. And if you are a PF Chang's (which is not even Chinese) enthusiast or worse, a buffet diner, please don't come here (unless you seek enlightenment). But if you want tasty and authentic Cantonese style noodles and BBQ I highly recommend this restaurant. I generally order the beef chow fun. The char sui (pork bbq) is truly excellent as well. The lunch specials (which go all the way to 3 pm as I recall) are an extra value. The take-out line always seems to be brisk even beyond lunch hours - a very good sign. The servers and waitresses are competent and are happy (a good sign in itself - they like being here) especially if you compliment the food ... and by all means let them know if you like it. This may well be my own favorite Chinese restaurant in GTA.

“Best Soup Kitchen in town...”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 2, 2012

The curry chicken and curry beef brisket are excellent.
Their BBQ is also amazing. Some of the best smoked chicken and smoked duck I have ever eaten.
Very inexpensive.
Bathrooms are a little sketchy.
