The place looks like a hole in the wall. I woman does all the out front work. I got the green pepper steak and Pork Fried Rice. Absolutely the best green pepper steak Ive had in my life. Something about the sauce that's just wonderful....My wife got a shrimp dish and she felt the same way. I have eaten in several Chinatowns across the US and I just wish we had a place like this in Charleston.More

Ordered through DoorDash the evening of March 26, 2021 and gave special instructions for the dish "No onions and No shrimp". Guess what it came with... both onions and shrimp. So I phoned the restaurant and the guy said contact DoorDash cause it's their fault....I said the order special instructions said no onions and no shrimp... So he then says only DoorDash sees special instructions for orders, and they don't see them at the restaurant.... Lied straight to me. I said every order that I've done with special instructions on DoorDash are followed by the restaurant I've ordered from. So end of story, I would be very leery ordering from ChongQing on Robson if you have any type of food allergy. It could end up being the end of your story...More

We ordered 3 items for takeout, based on my experience going to the restaurant on Commercial about 30+ years ago. It was a complete disappointment. The MaPo tofu was inedible - Tofu was hard and taste was awful. The dai ching chicken looked nothing like...the photo. It tasted overcooked and over marinated but we ate it. The hot and sour soup was a 4/10... edible but my wife just drank the soup and left the veggies and chicken ... a real disappointment. Even though the price was reasonable ($45), there’s no point paying anything for food this bad. Never going back.More

We ordered so much because everything sounded and indeed tasted so good! A nice walk from our hotel (Pan Pacific) to locate this little gem that is hidden in a store front in an okay area but so well worth it! The prices are very...reasonable as well. For us, the "green onion pancakes" as NYers, we know them as scallion pancakes, were simply delish! Can't believe we ate so much. Good thing we walked!More

Back for the first time since 2015, we enjoyed our meal at least as much as we did back then. All three of us had the hot and sour soup, and shared three plates, one full size and the other two half size. That provided...just the right amount of food. We had scallops with broccoli, green beans and mushrooms, and duck. All of it was very good. The service was cheerful and expeditious. I’ll gladly go here again.More

What a pleasant surprise! Called for delivery after choosing from the website. Reasonably priced. Very quick delivery on a Saturday at dinner time. Meal arrived hot and DEELICIOUS! I wish I had a bigger stomach. Best Chinese delivery I've had in decades. Generous portions, fantastic...fresh veggies and perfectly spiced meats, lovely light sticky rice and spring rolls, eco-friendly and reusable containers are a bonus! ... So full, but going back for seconds. YUM! Will def. be calling again.More

With the closure of Hon’s on Robson, and a craving for some decent Chinese cuisine, I decided to give ChongQing a try based on the largely positive reviews this establishment has received on social media sites like TripAdvisor. While I wouldn’t go as far as...some reviewers and declare ChongQing the “most amazing food in Vancouver,” I will concede that, on the whole, it was pretty good. There were many similarities with Hon’s that I appreciated: The menu is diverse; the price-point is very reasonable for the quality and quantity of food you receive; and, while the portions are large, it’s clear that ChongQing is not doing this to overcompensate for poor flavour. Quite the opposite, in fact! Now let me elaborate: After a lengthy walk through Vancouver’s West End and back to my hotel, I was quite peckish and so, while reviewing ChongQing’s menu online, I think hunger got the best of me – I ended up ordering way too much food: Fried Green Beans (Szechuan style), Hot Pepper Won Tons, Stir Fried Scallops w/ Red Chili sauce, Dai Ching Prawns and Shanghai Chow Mein w/ Shredded pork. What can I say, I must’ve been hungry! But to be fair, much like Hon’s, the menu had a LOT of attractive items on them . . . I guess the lesson is don’t order when starving ;) The good news, though, is that most of it was very tasty. The “Hot Pepper Won Tons” were ample and, unlike other places I’ve tried, they weren’t swimming in chili oil. Likewise, the Fried Green Beans were fairly exceptional. They were cooked properly and had a nice flavour to them; however, I do wish they had a little more “spice” to them as they did, at times, verge on blandness. The Dai Ching Prawns were, for me, the star of my order. The prawns were ample and fresh (they gave that lovely “pop” you get from a fresh product) while the accompanying vegetables added a nice “pop” of colour as well as texture contrasts. Again, though, for a dish that’s supposed to be “spicy” it was a bit wanting here. The Shanghai Chow Mein was fairly standard and didn’t particularly stand out. Finally, the Stir Fried Scallops with Red Chili Sauce – the dish I was most looking forward to – was without question the biggest disappointment. First, the poor scallops were drowning in the sauce (see photo). Second, this “chili sauce” tasted much more like a diluted sweet & sour sauce than something with spice. Again, most of the items were good, but I probably wouldn’t order the Shanghai noodles again, nor the scallops in chili sauce. While a lack of spice pervaded pretty much all of the so-called “spicy” dishes, it was most evident with the scallops, and in a not so good way. ChongQing really should work on this aspect of their food prep. Spicy should indeed be spicy. FOOD: 3/5 SERVICE: 4/5 VALUE: 3/5 RECOMMENDATION: Overall, I think ChongQing serves as a fine and fair replacement for “cheap” Asian cuisine. The servings are generous and the delivery time was decent at 40 minutes. Interestingly, as I wrote this review, another similarity with Hon’s popped up: Some of ChongQing’s dishes are inevitably better than others, but I suppose that’s to be expected when you have such a large and diverse menu. Would I order from them again? Yes. Recommended. PS: If you found this review helpful in any way please consider hitting the "helpful" button!More
