Just oil everywhere. I mean insane amount if oil. Lemon chicken almost burnt, like so fried it's just a thin dark husk. And burnt noodles, how do you burn noodles? Hear great things but got just oil and burnt noodles. I think this is the worst Chinese food I have ever had. Sad cause I don't get why it's so... More

Had Channing Restaurant, Chinese food on New Years Day. It was delicious. Honey garlic chicken balls, sweet & sour chicken balls, & sesame chicken are my favourites. Portions are generous and freshly made, and quite reasonable.

Good overall quality of food and service. I have made several visits (on recommendation from locals) and have always been happy with the experience. If your used to European iterations of Chinese food it worths to note that even the spicy dishes are not as spicy as you might be accustomed to, and that there is a "Canadian touch" on... More

This restaurant is always a good place to have a good meal. For a number of years I have had the large wonton soup for one, and I haven't been disappointed. I usually get the egg roll on the side at the same time as my partner has the apatizer soup. Also, I get some hot mustard to put on... More

I had not been to this restaurant for some years and I was looking forward to some good Chinese! Hooked up here with some old friends for dinner last week. We all ordered individual combo dinners. Some good parts were the chicken soo guy (nice a crispy batter!) and the Chinese tea. Was not crazy about the veggies or the... More

I liked it but I found the food rather nondescript. There's a lot on the menu and too much food for one person although it was tasty I thought some of the seafood was originally from frozen stock.

Stopped in for lunch and got dishes off the regular menu. The Channing Chow Mein was amazing -- the vegetables were cooked perfectly and there were a variety of them (mushrooms, cauliflower, broccoli, etc.). The lemon chicken soo guy is to die for. The coating was crisp and the chicken was tender. The fried rice was tasty. All their sauces... More
