“Reasonable and good”
Reviewed September 5, 2013

Congee Queen is really above average. The place is clean with fast and good service. The wait staff actually almost run during the dinner rush! But they still remain friendly and give good ordering suggestions. English is spoken and quite well. This is a cantonese style restaurant that serves real chinese food and various Thai dishes as well. Food is good and reasonable pricing. Average price for dinner of 4 is $35-40 depending on type of food and quantity of dishes you order. Congee queen is our neighbourhood restaurant which we eat in or take out every Fri and Sun. To avoid a line up, either arrive before 6:30pm or after 7:45pm. Otherwise you will wait for a long time!!! As all Chinese restaurants, Congee Queen is kid friendly! Remember Asian kids are usually very well disciplined. Enjoy your meal!

“Queen Me”
Reviewed May 7, 2013

Great value and tastiest jook in the area. Get the super bowl seafood congee and a side order of boiled liver and kidneys. You'll think you were back on the streets in Hong Kong. Service can be a little rushed and indifferent but this shop is busy and understandable.

“The gold standard of Good Chinese food”
Reviewed April 8, 2013 via mobile

Good section of congee, noodles and rice dishes of all kinds. Skillfully prepared by the chefs with good consistency. Large proportions. And between 3 to 5pm, they have a tea time price with a beverage included such as red bean with ice cream.

“Congee comfort food”
Reviewed March 31, 2013

Just had a sumptuous meal at Congee Queen with the family. We came at 6:00 pm and were lucky enough to get a table straight away. By the time we left at 7:30, the line was already very long. Take away line was also long.
We had congee superior bowl, salt and spicy squid, fish and tofu in clay pot, radish cake, chicken with secret sauce, Taiwanese noodles. Food temperature just right and delicious, squid was good but I think had a dash of MSG. Food servings good for about 3-4 adults. Fast service.
Go before or after usual meal times to get seats. Would like to go back and try the BBQ dishes next time.
