When we go, we will typically order take out as well for another meal. Hot/sour soup is great, salt and pepper squid is amazing, most things on the... More

I used to find the name a bit of a turnoff but after our second visit this year I can say they offer a vast selection of authentic Chinese dishes such as beef, chicken, bbq pork, seafood and vegetables. On both occasions we ended up taking home the left overs and finished every bit. The place can be very busy... More

It is generally a good indication of good food and traditional dishes being served. It's not a fancy place but always clean and well kept, brightly lit and full of people having a good time. The food is always... More

Congee Queen has taken over Congee King as the best Chinese noodle and rice shop in greater Toronto in Scarborough, North York and Leslie. Great value.
