We have been here about 4 or 5 times between both locations and you can not go wrong with their food. The staff are wearing traditional Chinese outfits which makes the experience very colourful and unique. The food is always tasteful and well presented. HOWEVER, do not put your fork or spoon down for a rest or they will come and take your dish away and being you your next course. Both location's of Cynthia's will rush you through your meal! Hold on to your utensils...I am serious! The meals are well priced however we always order one of their banquet meals which we always enjoy. A lot of food, very delicious but do 't let them rush you.

.Cynthia is well known in Newmarket for her restaurant in the same plaza for it's excellent food. Her new location offers sushi and other Chinese and Korean specialties. What is unique about her new location are the high tech menus. You are given an Ipad on which you can scroll to all your favourite foods. Each item is shown as a beautiful photo so if your not familiar with the food names of the 180+ items on the menu by seeing a beautiful picture it makes it much easier to choose what you want. Portions are taster size, you click on the item for as many as you like and then push send which is received in the kitchen and made up immediately and sent to your table. While enjoying that item you can scroll through and pick additional choices. We spent a couple of hours wading our way through the many courses, Andy the manager or Cynthia herself drops by your table to help out and make additional suggestions of what to eat next. The food is sensational, the service is superb, this is definitely Newmarket's best restaurant by far.

I have enjoyed the pleasure of dining at Cynthia's Chinese Restaurant hundreds of times over the last 20 or so years and it has always been AMAZING! I have dined at many Chinese restaurants over the years and I can tell you that Cynthia's Chinese Restaurant is the cleanest Chinese restaurant in the GTA with the Best Service and the Highest Quality of food, it is totally in a class of it's own! Honestly, nothing compares to it! I have personally recommended well over a hundred people to Cynthia's Restaurant and the feedback has always been totally positive. Now with the new Cynthia's Paradise in Newmarket in the same plaza as her other restaurant, you can enjoy the All You Can Eat feature in an elegant atmosphere and it offers tremendous value for you money and it is not a buffet style where the food is sitting out in the open forever and handled by everyone, it is MADE FRESH and brought to your table quickly as soon as you order it off the extensive menu on the ipad that they give you at each table. Excellent Food, Service, Value and cleanliness!!! Consistently the Best Chinese Food in town!

we enjoyed the experience of the restaurant,its all you can korean and japanese food,we loved the fact that you can order from an ipad where you see and get a full description of what you are ordering,the price is slightly a bit higher than all you can eat sushi but the variety is bigger and better. We loved it and will go back, the service is fast and efficient place is clean and nice, their is a language barrier with some of the waiting staff but overall its a good experience

Took 6 people ,3 seniors and was not given the seniors price, We were squashed into a small booth with 3 people with canes. Terrible waiter who ignored us. Did not tell us how to order on the ipad even after asking twice for instructions. They give you a time limit to eat and get out but you have to wait for the waiter to confirm order before it is sent to the kitchen, therefore the slower the waiter the less food they allow you. They dropped food on the table without naming it and our food order was brought out of order, mains before appetizers and dessert in the middle of the meal. Very disappointed in the customer service so if you want a nice dinner experience skip Cynthia's Paradise and spend your hard earned dollars elsewhere
