I just always want to order everything! It is all good. Spicy wontons, steamed dumplings, salty sticky rice, spicy green beans, and yes I love the pickled veggies-peppered- pig stomach soup. The kids love it too , plus soy sauce noodles and just plain rice porridge!

Food is still good, especially Steamed Shanghai pork dumplings and Shanghai style fried rice cake. Price is still the same but portion is getting smaller and smaller, and this is the main reason going there less and less. Remember one time bought a Shanghai style stir fried noodle which taste so good but portion was small and it's almost $14... More

We have been to this restaurant many times. The Xiao Long Bao is certainly one of our regular ordered item. Their specialty dim sum are highly recommended. They are suitable for sharing with friends and family.

I was working in Calgary this week and my colleague suggested I try Great Taste. The food was very good and the service was quick, despite the restaurant being very busy. The menu is very extensive and contains a huge section for seafood. I had Shanghai Pork Dumplings and Kung Pao Chicken. First, the steamed dumplings were simply amazing. Obviously... More

Looking for xiao long bao like the ones we had in Shanghai. These are close but not enough soup, but the filling was nice. We also the clams in XO sauce (yum), stir-fry green beans (spicy), preserved pork belly (a little too salty for us), cold noodles (not bad). Nice meal overall. We were looking for the drunken chicken we... More

Good food as usual. Their Steamed Shanghai Pork Dumplings is the best in Calgary, thin dough and juicy. Stir fried shredded potato is good, the portion of vinegar, sugar and spicy are done properly. This is not an easy job. The potato is so crunchy! Other dishes are also good compared to other similar restaurants in town. Price is good... More

Searching for northern style dim sum and food, items such as xiao long bao (steam juicy pork dumpling with a very thin chewy skin), sticky rice roll, fried chive pockets. The xiao long bao skin was very good, thin, chewy, but, the filling was really weird. Taste like a mixture of ground beef/pork and color is very dark, ? Too... More
