We order take out from here about once a month and it is always good. They get very busy at times, but when you order, it is literally ready in 15 to 20 minutes.

Their food has big size (when compare the other Chinese Restaurant in Kanata) and it wasn't expensive too. However, sometime, you will need to wait for table.

We ordered out! Coming form Toronto we found the food mundane and expensive. No veggies to be found, small portions.

If you're looking for very good chinese/asian food you will not go wrong by dining at the Rideau Restaurant. The Moo Shoo chicken is amazing as are the garlic spare ribs. If you're looking for a fancy decor this is not the place however what it lacks in ambiance it certainly makes up for it with their food. Give it... More

Went to Rideau Restaurant for the food and only the food. Best to do takeout if you want to avoid seeing the unkept restaurant. Unkept is a nice way of saying dirty and run down. There were huge chips out of the paint/walls from where guests chairs have hit one too many times. But worse was the filthy dirt on... More

Very good food, friendly service. Good prices. I agree with previous reviewers that the venue is due for a refurbishment, including paint job and new chairs. Also needs a few fly traps/zappers as the last time I was there there were several annoying competitors for my food.

We have been here near a dozen times. My wife is a meat eater and finds that the food ranges from good to very good, leaning towards the good, but never less. Her main issue has to do with the food being bland at times, and lack of veggies, but she never complains about the quality of the ingredients. I... More

Pretty standard Chinese food or decent quality and portions. Servers are friendly and helpful. A good place for family or larger groups. The place is overdue to be repainted and could use some more decorations (oddly, they have pictures of Prime Minister Stephen Harper visiting there!)

The food at the Rideau restaurant is authentic Chinese - a lot of variety for vegetarians as well as meat-eaters. Food is fresh and sizzling when brought to your table. The portions are also very lager so you easily get your money's worth. The staff is very pleasant and if you're not sure what you want, they'll make suggestions. If... More

The food was freshly cooked but quite slow in coming. One server with no back up as the table use increased, we were a party of eight (booked) and at lunch there were seven other tables in use. Good flavours, no complaints, odd specials board for non-Chinese customers (as mentioned by others) but hey, life's a gamble!!!!
