We made a reservation through OpenTable, but when we showed up, Mister Chen's Asian Brasserie was closed. The music playing outside is usually pretty good though, and the menu looked mint, so I'll assume 5 stars until proven otherwise.
The food comes in small portions, served luke warm or cold. The temperature is not on purpose as the texture of the wings seemed like they had been sitting as they were more than moist saturated in the cold sauce. The server forgot our main course order. We left unsatisfied, hungry, and disappointed. Not even the drinks were worth the money. They tasted like crap and were only presented well.
Great food and service. Ordered the Scallop Sashimi, Tuna tataki, Japanese street noodles, soup dumplings and the beef tartare. Also got the matcha creme brûlée and the chinese doughnuts. Every dish was great with alot of flavor. A few of us also got some of their craft cocktails and were delicious (I pearly know you and i’ill have another). Taylor was our server, she gave us great recommendations and we never had to wait for drinks!
Everything was great but especially Simon was lights out as our server.
Out of the 6 dishes we ordered to share, I enjoyed 2 of them. Some of the dishes we didn't even end up finishing as they were that disappointing. Wouldn't go back for the food. Maybe would for a cocktail and the atmosphere.
We thoroughly enjoyed our dining experience at Mister Chen’s. The service we received was well above average and our server was able to very competently explain our dining experience. Both his knowledge of the food and drink menu were first class and the passion he had was immensely evident! The food was everything promised and was so delicious!
It was everything I expected. The food was delicious the atmosphere and music was perfect. Our server was very versed with the menu and the people that collected here were eclectic and fun.
Not sure you should go there if you strictly want Chinese food. much better elsewhere. From my observation more for the ambiance
The food and cocktails were excellent. Waiters and bartenders were really nice. We would definitely go back.
What an amazing experience! We were welcomed warmly and treated with exceptional service at this location. The food was top-notch, and we were even treated on the house because we mentioned our special occasion. Thanks for a great evening.
Everything we tried was excellent. A little slow getting all the sushi (salmon) out to us, but for that good of quality sometimes it’s better to wait.
Great vegetarian options, very unique.
Unfortunately service was very slow. The food was all right we wished it had all come out at the same time. The food was very staggered some dishes were cold by the time they came out. And found the music to be very loud.
I had been there previously, I wrote a review on OpenTable with my experience. It was not good review, especially on the service. The owner of Mister Chen took my comments very seriously. He (Shaun) wanted to make things right. He invited me and my husband back. It was a very good experience this time round. I appreciate that my feedback was not ignored. I loved the new menu, there is even more vegetarian and vegan options.
All in all a good experience at Chen’s. One small issue and the restaurant managers dealt with it very well. Food was great, cocktails just excellent. Just a couple small details.... plates and cutlery should have been switched out after our beginning courses. We had 2 raw plates and a bit off eating a $60 ribeye off a plate that had raw food on it. Also my water glass was cleaned up before I was done then had to ask for another. Not a big deal but I feel these are details that could have been better. Server was very nice and atmosphere and music great! Will be back again thanks for a good night!
Food was great! Decent price! Would go back again !
Shaun went above and beyond to make as feel welcomed! The dumplings were really delicious
Food was not great value—better value at dim sum or on the street (street food). The baos were disappointing. The cabbage was terrible. The tomahawk ribs were a joke.
As a brasserie, you’d expect the drinks to be on point. But no, not the situation here.
The waitress spent more time flirting and doing shots with the table full of chach dudes next to us. She didn’t clear our plates until it was waaaay too late. And she got our food orders wrong a few times.
Will never go back.
Food and service was exceptional .... very unique flavours - I’ll definitely be going back
No one in the restaurant but sat us between 2 other parties. 1 of our 2 Pork belly baos had next to no pork belly. Biggest let down was the short rib, yes very tender but nothing asian about it. Only vegetable it came with were grilled beets that were raw. Never going again.
My wife and I love Mr. Chen's! We have been going since the opening, have held our company Xmas party there and Mr. Chen's never disappoints! Last night we went there with plans to have dinner and head out stampeding.....5 hours later we were still enjoying the ambience, food and drinks! Couldn't have been a better night the staff was great! Tiego (sp?) treated us like Royalty! Taylor and Dorien (sp?) were fantastic. Perfect food, perfect ambience, perfect staff. Can't wait to go back!
great food and amazing company - good service and drinks too
My pops bday
Friday nights there are always a great time to have drinks and food with friends. Great Music. Great atmosphere. Delicious food.
This was our first time at Mr. Chen's and it will not be our last visit! No wonder this restaurant is rising to the top of Calgary's dining choices - absolutely fantastic!
Loved! Excellent food, excellent service! Can’t wait to return for more delicious soup dumplings 🥟 and tofu baos!😋
We loved Mister Chen’s! The food, the service and ambiance were all excellent! We will be back
We loved this place! Great food with unique flavors and a fun atmosphere!
Unique spot with unique food. Loved the spam bao and the whole fish. Definitely recommend for a unique dining experience.
Delicious food, I was so excited to check it out and was so delighted with the quality of food. The Octopus and Pork Belly were incredible. Only wish there was more, we shared between four of us and it wasn't quite enough. I'll just know to order more next time :)
Omg delicious! Good service too. We'll be back.
Our server was very friendly and helpful with choosing our dishes. The wild boar pot stickers, octopus and tuna were amazing! The rice was super yummy as well. We tried the bao buns too and those were phenomenal! None of us are vegetarians but we tried all of the bao flavors and the KFC tofu was our favorite - so tasty. And then finally we had the Tomahawk short rib which was also very nice.
The restaurant started to fill up just as we were finishing our dinner which was probably a good thing. There was a DJ which is great but the clientele coming in was a tad bit (and by tad I mean by 20 years difference) younger so figured it might start to get too loud for us old people.
Great place, can't wait to go back.
Definitely will be back for the shumai!!!!
The service is always so good! But bring back tuna crudo please! 👏🏻👏🏻
Food was good and service was good. Wasn’t super loud which allowed for easy all inclusive conversation.
The food was amazing. Must try the pork soup dumplings. The long beans and the bao buns were awesome as well. Will definitely be back.
Food great but music too loud and does not fit the ambiance of the place
Service was great but food was meh. No taste, bland food. Disappointing.
They beat my expand had great food along with great service. We will be going again for sure. The bao are fatty and much lighter than most. Great job!
