“good authentic chinese food”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 29, 2013

The best items here are the congee and the roast duck....very is similar to Hong Kong. Best of all is the price point, have a feast here and it won't cost you much. Indulge!

“Best Chinese "Canteen" In Toronto Area”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 19, 2013

I have 4 favorite Chinese restaurants.

For the best supper in general I name Lee Garden.

For the best experience for "Village Taste" (I guess hard to explain - but very strong taste, foods you think you find at some street-side restaurant in a Chinese village) then I go to Swatow.

For peking duck and somewhat more refined Chinese dining then it is Asian Legend (but the Finch and Leslie is better than the others).

And then there is Congee Queen as favorite for everyday "Canteen" dining. Each restaurant named here has different tastes and style and so it all depends on what you feel like. Congee Queen is great for lunch or dinner and most of their dishes are very good. Best is their rice hot pots (where the rice aroudn the pot becomes crispy). One thing they do a poor job on is wontons... go to Swatow for that. Their congee is good too, but Goldstone is way better (Goldstone not one of favorites, but they do have the best BBQ and congee). Also, the restaurant is very clean, well laid-out and a good atmosphere (vs. many other Chinese restaurants in the same price range that is drab). Their prices are unbelievably low. Not sure we would save much/any money if we bought the ingredients ourselves and had to cook them ourselves.

“Good food, busy place”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 2, 2013

Prepare to line up for good food. Price is not cheap depending on what u ordering. Food comes so fast, which means they will give u the bill quicker too.

“Great food and value!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 16, 2012

I love Congee Queen. Food portion and price are great value! There are tons of variety to choose from. A good place to meet up with friends for lunch and dinner. Only issue is line up- starts around 6pm.

“Excellent Value”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 24, 2012

Food is excellent but always very busy. So prepare to wait a little if you have more than four in your party. Inexpensive Chinese fast food at its best!
