A friend introduced me to this restaurant - an institution in the area. The food was very tasty, the portions plentiful. It's a good omen when a place has been around for a long time. The atmosphere is interesting - all service staff being Chinese, they converse LOUDLY amongst themselves. It could be interpreted as disrespectful and quite annoying but... More

We love this place for its dim sum brunch. But we experienced the worse Chinese banquet we ever had in Canada. All the dishes tasted like they used the same black bean source. The crispy chicken was not even crispy. The banquet menu was not well thought out. It had over 10 dishes, over 4 were vegetarian and not a... More

Went to this place for a brunch. So far I didn't have opportunities to try this cuisine and that was too bad because I didn't know I was missing something so great! The staff was very attentive and had a great sense of humour. We had a lots of different food, didn't know what any of those were, I was... More

Have been going to this place for over 25 years. The food is consistently excellent with lots of selections to please everyone. All the dishes are excellent but some standout even more than others. Namely, their ginger and garlic fried chicken. They have Chinese dishes, Thai dishes and dim sum. They also have a set lunch menu if you are... More

Eat-in or take out .... this is the best Chinese food in the area. Wish they had delivery! (but then this would likely mean a decrease in quality) Dim Sum is phenomenal .... Service is quick and friendly. My family have been going here for years and keep coming back. Good for large groups and small intimate dining. They also... More

How convenient can you get! On a visit to the Montfort Hospital, we decided to take in an early lunch. My husband found the Mandarin Ogilvie, just blocks from the hospital. They offer ALL DAY DIM SUM, 7 days a week, as well as an "a la carte" extensive Mandarin and Thai Menu. We needed to go as early as... More

We had never been before and didn't realize that it would be Dim Sum. One of the things I think is missing when Dim Sum is served is an explanation by the servers or maitre'd on what Dim Sum is and what kind of dishes will be served. Being inexperienced, we felt compelled to choose one of everything. That wasn't... More

Dim Sum is usually served in small dishes that would suit a variety of tastes. Have been to a few dim sum places and this one is the better places in Ottawa. They still have servers to pass by the tables with carts. Service is so so. They can pay attention to cleaning their table better as ours had quite... More

There was a very wide variety of mostly Asian food and sea food. The service was very good and deserts were excellent. It is a buffet.
