Ate here at lunch recently and would say it was not as good as previous years. Service people pushing the trays do not look happy and seemed uninterested in any questions. They have a loyal following but I prefer Mandarin Ogilvie or Yangtze across the...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

With limited time available, our visit to Ottawa's China town became a late night one (11 pm!) The Chu Shing was just about the only place open and was itself showing signs of closing - the solitary table of diners were finishing as we arrived....More

I've only ever been here for dim sum, but its our go-to place. Sometimes you have to wait a bit for a trolley to come around, but it's part of the experience. (You can also ask the servers walking around if you are looking for...More

This is the best dim sum lunch in Ottawa without fail. It is served from trolleys in traditional style. Really piping hot towers of baskets fresh from the super heated steamers. Mostly Asian clientel - tourist across the street. Right beside the new China Town...More
