I am not always a fan of buffets, but I was very pleasantly surprised with Toi Shan. My husband and I had been invited here by friends that frequently eat there. This was a luncheon buffet on a Monday. The dining room is not overly large but was always at least half full for the hour or so we were... More

This place is small, unsophisticated and relatively "cheap and cheerful". However, they do serve a great buffet lunch, that is tasty and inexpensive. First time visit and I was very impressed. Recommend.

If you're planning on eating in call ahead or go early or you'll likely have to wait. As for take out, have never waited more than 10 mins. My fav is... More

Stopped in one day to pick up something for dinner for three of us. My kids are vegetarian and I ordered vegetarian crepe/pancakes. They were excellent.

For years this used to be the go-to place for terrific Chinese food. My husband and I just went after not being there for literally years, and will definitely not go back! It was terrible! The ginger beef in particular was grisly with all of the watery sauce at the bottom of the bowl. Absolutely do NOT recommend, and so... More

Toi Shan has the best chinese food in Calgary by far. It is affordable and always high quality. The owners are very nice and attentive. I go here often and have never been disappointed.

Toi Shan was a family treat! Tasty, abundant and affordable. We had special order for 4 and got plenty of food - wonton soup, rolls, fried rice (with shrimp!!!), sweet n sour pork, cashew chicken and ginger beef! We also ordered dumplins which were delicious but ended up in being too much food for 4! Restaurant is tiny, but cozy;... More
