Some dishes are great, and beyond delicious, while some others are horrendous. Some dishes are highly recommended, such as Steamed Shanghai Pork Dumplings, Five Spiced Beef, Pan Fried Onion Pancake, and Shredded Pork in Spicy Sauce (my personal favorite). They are not only delicious, but very authentic. However, their congees are super watery and just disgusting (imagine a cup of... More

We had dinner at the Great Taste Chinese Restaurant 594 64 Ave NE location on a Sunday evening. We reservations for 7pm and upon arriving, the lobby was considerably congested. Having to move constantly to allow for customers to come and go, and wait staff to deliver food made me feel like I was in a can of sardines. Next,... More

As per the title of this review, the Xiao Long Bao are addictive, as are the wok-charred green beans. We had 10+ dishes for our group of 4 and were fully satisfied. Great place for groups as they can disassemble and reassemble tables as needed.

This restaurant in the heart of Calgary's China town still serves so-so Northeast Chinese dishes and the service is still poor. However, there's a new one with the same Chinese and English name at 594-64Ave NE Calgary and for some reason offers better food and better service than this one. I am not sure if both of these restaurants belong... More

Hi, So I've been going to the Grand Pearl Seafood Restaurant weekly for about 4 years every Friday for Dim Sum ..... so about a month ago they had a new order form - but that only lasted a week because it was wrong and then the new owners got it figured out. So now they're running normally and they're... More

This is indeed a great tasting restaurant!! This Shanghainese food is delicious and fresh! Literally anything you order will probably taste great. The xiao long bao are perfect. We got some lamb satay and cumin skewers; cooked to perfection. Dan Dan noodles were peanuty and just the right texture. The spicy wontons were good, but could have been spicier. We... More

I just always want to order everything! It is all good. Spicy wontons, steamed dumplings, salty sticky rice, spicy green beans, and yes I love the pickled veggies-peppered- pig stomach soup. The kids love it too , plus soy sauce noodles and just plain rice porridge!

Food is still good, especially Steamed Shanghai pork dumplings and Shanghai style fried rice cake. Price is still the same but portion is getting smaller and smaller, and this is the main reason going there less and less. Remember one time bought a Shanghai style stir fried noodle which taste so good but portion was small and it's almost $14... More

We have been to this restaurant many times. The Xiao Long Bao is certainly one of our regular ordered item. Their specialty dim sum are highly recommended. They are suitable for sharing with friends and family.
