The service is the best part even though the waiter put soup on are table and just expected us to pour it ourselves. We received cold duck that looked like it had been sitting out for days, and we got dried up chicken that looked...to horrible to try. We use to come to this restaurant a lot. Since there has been a change of management the quality of the restaurant got worse in every aspect. I don’t recommend coming here,and clearly no one else does considering it was empty when we got there!More

Soluxe is located at a prime area in Chinatown, I have never enjoyed visiting there for years, but after it changed hands, there are more authentic Chinese food and service has greatly improved.

Good dim sum but dinner is also great as well. Don't be afraid to ask for what is on the Chinese meal or their special dishes to get the full dinning experience. Service is a bit lacking compared to other dinning places but at least...the food will make up for it.More

We were originally planning to visit another popular Chinese restaurant nearby but as it was full due to a wedding we visited Soluxe instead. I'm so glad we did. As it was early in the evening it was fairly quiet and we found the waiting...staff helpful and attentive. We ordered a starter of dumplings and three dishes including chicken with black bean sauce and a noodle dish. Big mistake, the portion sizes were huge. No starter and two dishes would have very adequate for a normal appetite. The quality of the food was excellent and the black bean sauce was one of the tastiest I have eaten. I would not call this a high class restaurant but if you want reasonably priced tasty Chinese food I would put it on your list.More

Ordered Sticky rice, pork ribs in black bean sauce, pan fried radish cake, beef steamed roll, shumai. Everything was up to standard and right size. Beef steamed rice roll was not authentic. They made 1 single giant roll, which is supposed to be 3 or...4 smaller ones. Because this was a giant roll, the beef was also rolled into a big roll which made me feel too much meat. Even it was beef steamed rice roll, the major ingredient is still steamed rice roll, not beef. Sticky rice was big. It was full size instead of dim sum size. Make sure there is enough people to finish that. Chiu Stuffing in Chau fun guo was good but the skin was way too thick. Service was not bad at all but slow. Orders always messed up which you might find the waitress deliver something that you did not order. This is a known issue. This is one of the dim sum places I go in China Town.More

The dimsum at Soluxe is one of the good one in Calgary. Business starts at 10 am and Chinese tea are served on compliments when you are eating dimsum at the place. The slow service has improved over the months when we first visited the...place at the beginning of the year. Order the clay pot rice with pork rib and phoenix fingers if you like this type of food, its only 6.95 and enough for 2 person, order a few more regular dimsum, and you are ok with a good breakfast or even brunch for the day.....reasonable and big portion, taste good as well.More

Ate here early of a Saturday evening, having strolled around Calgary's Chinatown district looking for somewhere to eat. We were drawn in by the comprehensive menu and special offers at the door. The restaurant was very busy (always a good sign) but we were found...a table by the window. Complimentary green tea was served while we scanned the menu and we decided on sweet and sour pork, beef in black bean sauce and Yung Chow fried rice. Huge portions, freshly cooked and piping hot - more than enough for two to share and very tasty Despite being busy, service was friendly and efficient. Total bill including drinks was CAD$50 / £30More

The food here is simply superb. Chinatown is a short walk from Calgary Tower, where there are a lot of overpriced hotel restaurants. If you are staying near the tower then go for a little walk down to Chinatown! The food at Soluxe was authentic,...tasty and inexpensive. Just remember that all dishes on the menu are meant for sharing so be careful not to over order. The service was excellent and friendly as well. Highly recommended!More

I did not step foot in the restaurant since it opened years ago. I was told that this place only cater to their own. After a few years, my friends persuaded me to go there and try out. To my surprise, management has changed. The...food was decent and the service ... well, its acceptable.More

After strolling around in Chinatown searching for a dinner place, my family settled on this restaurant seeing as it actually had decent business (aka several tables already sitting inside while most others were empty). The menu is extensive and service was initially good. We ordered...Sichuan boiled fish, green beans, their house-special beef dish (forgot the name) and Shanghai soup dumplings. We fortunately came before they got super busy so all of our dishes came out with good time, though they forgot about our white rice for a while. After we were done eating, they were essentially 2/3 full (with 3 private parties) in a huge restaurant and they only had 2 waiter(ess)es, so needless to say, they were very busy running around fulfilling orders. Would recommend to anyone visiting Chinatown in Calgary and would go back again for a Chinese meal if I'm in the area again.More

Visited on November 11, when most of the places were closed for dinner. Nice restaurant, very Chinese, however you know it is a good Chinese Restaurant when you have Chinese people eating there, that means authentic and quality. They did not disappointed. You get tea...before your meal (great on a cold night) and the portions were large. Ordered Sweet and Sour Pork and Kung Pow Chicken and steamed rice on a site. Very affordable. Good service. Will be back if in town. Recommend.More

We were turned down by our local friends whose favorite Chinese stop was closed as it was a Monday, even though the web lookup said it was open. We chose the Soluxe as there were many locals already eating and enjoying. We had three menu...items, including Ginger Beef, which was 5 star, and salt and pepper calamari, which as 5 star plus and then came the pineapple shrimp. While my local friends did not want to comment, we found the coating was not cooked well on the shrimp and the small, flat items included tasted rancid to me. We also ordered some vegetables to go along with the food. We were finished eating by 10 minutes when the vegetable order arrived. We had it sent back. At this time, I noticed that the wait lady gave us dirty looks every time she went by our table. So, my recommendation is that you can get some outstanding food as well as some that is almost uneatable. Hard to rate this place with one figure, but I will not rate it high, although 1/2 of the meal was outstanding.More

Apparently, this restaurant came to be to provide the new Nexen Chinese ex-pats with a taste of home. Honestly, I find the food very similar to good Beijing fare. I have been 4 or 5 times and have enjoyed every visit. It's not quite like...the other Chinese places in Calgary, but similar enough that you won't be shocked. :) I have found everything that I have ordered to be good and fresh. No complaints at all. No dim sum by the way, if you are thinking lunch.More

We stumbled on this place by accident, but intend to return. No fake 'Chinese' - this is the real thing, with excellent and authentic Chinese grub. Service was reasonable (it was quite busy - all Chinese, which is a clue when looking for real ethnic...food). Quite clean, reasonably priced. While what we had was quickly served, some dishes take a while, so you may want to plan in advance. She says the washroom was very pleasant. Private dining rooms available.More
