This place is always packed full, parking is impossible, and the staff is always rude. But the food is so darn good! I suggest ordering off the big menu, and taking it home to enjoy in the comfort and quiet of your own place.

Bobby Chao's Restaurant was our fav restaurant for many years since they moved to NW, sadly since last year the food quality is not as good as before, just wonder if they have changed their cooks / chefs. Portions are smaller and not presentable. We stopped dining there since then until two weeks ago, we were hopeful to give another... More

We have been to Bobby Chao's on a few occasions and our most recent visit was last month to celebrate our parents' anniversary. The food was excellent, albeit portions are a bit smaller than your typical Chinese restaurant. There is an expanded menu including some Vietnamese selections and beverages such as bubble tea, but the evening we visited (7:30), that... More

I wanted Chinese food for supper but I also wanted leftovers. We have very few good Chinese restaurants in our area of the city but we do have Bobby Chao's. We arrived just before 5:30 to an empty restaurant and left just before 7:00 to a full restaurant and people waiting for a table. The food was fresh, hot and... More

For dim sum lovers living in the north west quadrant of Calgary, Bobby Chao is a good option. The restaurant is in a strip mall. Does not look like much from the outside but it is pretty spacious inside. Food is served fresh and has a distinct home made taste. Service is fast and friendly.

The food is always good and so this is our favourite place for Chinese food in Calgary despite the terrible service. I first went to this restaurant with some Chinese friends and really enjoyed the food and so I took my family a few times until we decided the service was so bad that the best thing to do is...

dim sum is excellent there. may not have good selection as restaurants in China Town, but they are delicious. Dinner menu is innovative, a level up from the other Chinese restaurants in town. This is the go to place when we can't decide where to go for dinner. Service is good. I have no complaint. They also run the Vietnamese... More

Heard so much about the place at the current location and decided to go. It is very good Hong Kong Fusion Style of North & Southern Chinese food. We had one of the combo of traditional steam fish steak and salty fish and pork cake. The fish was good and done in a very traditional Chinese way. The pork cake... More

Tucked away in a NW suburban strip mall, hides dimsum nirvana. This is also home to the best (and best value, coincidentally) Peking Duck in town! The décor is rather basic, but the staff and food are excellent. It is our go to place, at least once every 2 weeks! However, you are warned,....it can be addictive! Try the rice... More

Coming into this restaurant, we felt like there was no service at all. Waitresses stood around the counter talking to each other rather than checking on their customers and attending to their needs. We ordered a drink and it arrived after our food came. And all the dishes we ordered were really salty and spicy. In all, we are definitely... More
