This restaurant has been around for years and is my favorite in Edmonton. The food is good, the service is prompt. We order food regularly for takeout. The quality of food is consistently high and has not changed over the years.

Dan Shing is not a ritzy spot by any means but if you want good Cantanese Chinese food it is the place tp go.The Pork and Shrimp Dumpling soup is one of my favourites, as are the Amoy noodles which is a dish with rice vermicelli, beans sprouts, bits of pork, onion, egg and thinly sliced Chinese mushrooms. The rice rolls are very good, especially the shrimp ones. Their gai lan dishes are good, either beef or chicken. They have some more authentic choices such as vietnamese soups or tofu with BBQ pork and onions but also the North American standards like; wor won ton soup, sweet and sour pork, chow mien, etc.They even have a combination plate that is enough for 2 if you have soup. Their house special fried rice is very good. It is true that they aren't real attentive, they usually have 2 ladies to do everything, from cleaning tables to serving.You arrive, you sit, you eat, what more could you want? I have been there alone, with my fella, with family and friends and we always bring food home. They also renovated last year, updated the colours and such.Thank goodness they left the roomy booths. FYI, it's CASH ONLY.

Ordered some spring rolls (frozen commercial) and bit into one, I ended up having the whole filling come out in a tube it was so old and over cooked. there are a couple things on the menu that are ok but most are not very good. If you must come the meat dumpling soup is ok and the rice rolls are super yummy when made and brought out fresh.
