We have been visiting this restaurant every time we have visited Ottawa over the past 12 years. Everything we have tried is excellent: the hot and sour soup, the salt and pepper squid, the green beans with ground pork, the har gow and dumplings, the...More

Actually my friends are brilliant and they suggested a gathering here last week. They have been coming to Chu Shing for years (not to be confused with Wah Shing down the street , which by the way is a gift shop, not a laundry). We...More

I've been to Chu Shing many times but never for Peking Duck and never on an early Friday evening. Both were a pleasant surprise! Apparently lots of people have a tradition to go there on a late Friday afternoon, and quite a number of people...More

A Chrismas Day Salvation! We were in Ottawa on Christmas Day, hungry, cold, looking for something to consume while all the city was practically closed. In our desperation, we walked to the local Chinatown, where the rumour said that the restaurants were open. Indeed so!...More
