Just threw out 60$ in food after two bites. The worst food, of any type, i have ever ordered! Period!! Never again, never try this place.

It is always a pleasure to eat here! The food is fantastic, authentic, and I don't think I have EVER had a bad dish here! My dad used to bring me and my brother here when we were kids, and we loved it! Still do...to this day!More

Nicest people! I love going here. You always get incredible food. Even though there is no dine in available due to Covid, take out was fast, fresh and fabulous as always. By the way this place is always impeccably clean. Thank you for the great...service as usual!!More

We were staying nearby and needed something close and quick to eat. This restaurant did meet our needs in that way. We had the meat and veggie fried rice (we wish there had been more veg but it was otherwise okay) and the ginger beef....The ginger beef was served with sauce on the side, and without the sauce, the meat would have been much too dry. With the sauce, it was palatable, but nothing to write home about. Portions were generous. They offer only take-out service, which is a good thing, as there are several homeless services very nearby, making it a hard sell as a sit-down place to eat. And on top of all that, there's a huge construction project going on outside the restaurant, so it was a bit difficult to get to.More

I have been coming here off and on for 20 years. The food remains fantastic. Service is great although they do have a couple of new people that aren't quite as friendly. Soup is always fresh and tasty, everything is actually.

Over the Christmas holidays, my family and I had two meals at Double Greeting Won Ton House: first dinner, and then lunch the next day. We found this place very convenient right downtown near Jasper Avenue and across the street from our hotel, but for...me, the location was probably the stronger factor than the food itself. However, Chinese food in a pinch in Edmonton? That's what Double Greeting was. For the first meal, my family and I ordered spicy tofu on rice, special fried rice, rice soup with duck egg and shredded pork, onion pancake, and three bowls of ramen with beef tendon and won tons. The ramen was piping hot and tasty, and so was the rice soup. But the two plates of rice were rather dry. Spicy tofu on rice did not have the pickles we expected, and the special fried rice had very little taste. Altogether, our dinner for six people came to just under $70. The next day when my husband and I went to Double Greeting for lunch without other family members, we ordered what was good from our experience: rice soup with duck egg and shredded pork, and instead of rice, we ordered a bowl of ramen with bbq pork. We also had a long doughnut to go with the rice soup, plus hot lemon tea to chase away the cold. Our lunch was good but not spectacular, even though the tea was hot and steeped, with three slices of lemon. The bill came to just over $20 for the two of us. I would still recommend Double Greeting more for convenience than its culinary quality, but if one knows what to order, the eating experience may be okay. Thank you.More

I was introduced to Double Greeting 20 years ago. It is a staple for me since. It is in a tougher part of the city that is upgrading. The building looks rough on the outside and the decor is sparse. None of this keeps me...from heading over once a month to have the BBQ Duck Lo Mein, or the salted deep fried squid. No one in the city makes it better. I have never been disappointed, the food is always good and prices are reasonable. Beware, currently access is tough while the city puts in the new Rapid transit line on the adjacent street.More

Went there solo during a business trip after reading reviews about best ginger beef in edmonton. Had won ton soup and ginger beef on rice. The won ton soup was excellent! However i was a bit disappointed with the ginger beef... didnt feel the meat...was of high quality. Would go back to try something else thoughMore

My mom and I decided to try this place when we were really craving Chinese. We have been disappointed with a lot of the Chinese places we’ve been trying over the years. This one did not disappoint at all!! It was so delicious and fast!...It doesn’t look like much from the outside and they only take cash payments, but it’s so good! We both highly recommended it! We have the house special chow mein which was hands down the best chow mein I have ever had at any Chinese restaurant. The Sweet and Sour pork was crispy and saucy. The perfect balance of the two! We also had deep fried wontons. We were surprised when they came out because we expected the typical fried wontons with a slice of sauce. They had veggies and pineapple mixed with sauce poured all over them. They were incredible! We already can’t wait to go back!More
