Did the YYC dining experience. Food was great, the dessert was a bit too sweet and bitter but overall, it was pleasant menu!

Our server was the only one working (bartending and serving all the tables) and she did a fantastic job. We got everything in a timely manor and all the tables around us seemed happy too. Very impressed by the service.

Not worth the hype. The drinks were good but the food was mediocre and the service was slow. There are so many amazing restaurants in Calgary that I won’t bother going back.

Our server was excellent, and when our food was very slow to come out he stayed on top of it with the kitchen, and comped us some drinks for our wait. Enjoyed the service and the setting! The food however was underwhelming. The spare ribs were extremely chewy (no better than what you’d get at all you can eat Korean bbq and I tasted none of the glaze they described), the bao was good but not very exciting, the chicken lettuce wraps had two small pieces of chicken in the whole bowl and was essentially just noodles and soy sauce (we barely touched them because it was so bad), the octopus tacos were really good and were definitely the highlight. The drinks were good, though the same drink ordered twice came out very inconsistent...almost unrecognizable as the same drink. The prices were reasonable.

Booked a reservation for Valentine’s Day. We show up for the reso and the girl at the front says ”ok you have 1.5 hours and you will get your receipt 10 minutes before”. It would have been valuable information to know we had said time slots to eat especially considering the service was extremely slow we didn’t get to try everything we wanted. Overall my boyfriend and I had a fine experience, the was good, however, would not recommend due to the poor service and not warm welcome off the get-go.

Disappointing. Food was nowhere as good as we thought it would be. Tenderloin was impossibly tough, as were the short ribs. Potstickers and Pork Belly Bao were good, but not enough to save the meal. Wouldn’t return.

I am not going to lie. The restaurant/bar looked good and we liked the atmosphere at the first time. It was Valentines day. We had Valentine special 5 course dinner. The foods were not served in appropriate amount of time. For example afte the appetizer, we had to wait 25 minutes for a bowl of salad, and another 30 minutes for the next one. Furthermore, they forgot to serve the bread and mushroom which should be served before the main. Also our next table came later than us, started after us, but they finished the 5 course earlier than us. The attendants never filled our water, so I had to try to catch any server who passed round as to ask more water 3 times. So, we were very hungry while we were stay, very unpleasant to see that only the next table to be served the food on time, and desperate for the water all the time. No one ask about how we are doing or how is the food. Even I spent $100 for the course, we were still hungry after the 5 meal, so that we had to go another restaurant after that. Surprisingly, we are small eaters who need to ask to go box for the left over most of time.
I talked to the manager of the restaurant about the experience, and he apologize to us, and gave a coupon for next visit. We are very appreciate for him, since we are heard and card. I will visit them one more time, and give them another shot. However the first experience on the Valentines day was pretty disappointing. I will leave another review after the second visit.

Met friends for dinner and it was like they forgot about the reservation we made. Had to wait for a table, then we got seated beside a section that was obviously reserved for a large party of 35-45 people. Super noisy and couldn’t hear our conversation. Very disappointing as this was our second time there but they seated us by accident because it seemed like they didn’t have a table for our reservation.

I’ve been to Mister Chen’s a couple time’s but the new menu is by far the most impressive. Everyone is looking for a deal; the “happy hour specials” or “taco Tuesday’s” when this menu is a deal 24/7 AND on top of their killer prices they also have daily specials. They’re so on trend with what Calgary is asking for. Great food for a great price!

We came to Mister Chen's for our anniversary, and the night was absolutely amazing! The servers were super knowledgeable about the new menu, and one of the staff recognized us from our previous visit as well. Our server was also kind enough to offer us free sparkling wine for the occasion. We had an exceptionally delicious meal, trying four new dishes we hadn't had before, and each dish was even better than the last. We felt super welcomed, had an amazing time trying new dishes and delicious drinks, and left super satisfied. I would recommend this restaurant to anyone wanting to have a delicious meal in a welcoming space.

First time here, the food was good. The music was horrible, they were blasting rap music was an insane amount of swear words. It was awkward as we were with my husbands aunt. All the dishes we had were goo except the soupy dumping's. We love them and were really excited and then really disappointed. They were bland and actually luke warm. Our server was unbelievably good, he described everything so well and was so attentive. Over all the food was really nice and the restaurant itself is beautiful. I would definitely change the music. The rap music doesn't go with the décor.

We went on dumpling day and we got to try some of our favorites and some new ones we have never tried before! The soup dumplings are great!

The cocktails are great.. we had a smoked old fashioned which literally came with a bottle of smoke! It was a cool experience.

We had a reservation for new years' dining. There was a set 7-course menu. One of the main courses was never provided. The reservation was at 7:30 and we were finally out of there at 11:00. The service was slow and seemed unorganized.

Came here for my husband's birthday.
Ordered the pork belly skewers, beef tartare, scallop sashimi, and stir fried shrimps.
We got lamb skewers instead of pork belly, my husband didn't mind and didn't want to make a fuss so he finished them. I don't like lamb so I had a bite and left it at that. The scallops lacked flavour: yes it was spicy (as described) but felt like it was missing some seasoning. The stir fried shrimps and beef tartare were best but nothing outstanding. I got a cocktail that was really good. We wouldn't choose to come back but if someone proposed it, we wouldn't mind.
Since it was my husband's birthday, they offered a complimentary dessert which was very appreciated. The service was very good but just lacking in the food department.

Came on a Thursday night and service was amazing! The food was good - we ordered the Mushroom Wontons, Brussels Sprouts, and the Sriracha Shrimp. Although the food was tasty, it was overpriced for what we got. Three dishes with a tip came to 70 dollars, and the wontons were tiny. The shrimp dish came with maybe 6 shrimp, and the rest consisted of an unnecessary amount of pea pods and water chestnuts... not much substance. Average experience overall.

Service is slow but the food is very worth the wait. The dishes are impeccable and very tasty. The specials offered for each day are quite cost saving and entice customers to return. I'd definitely recommend it to all my friends.
