Ordered $100+ of food online. Stressed a couple times NO FISH, SHRIMP ETC allergy alert. Sent food with shrimp anyway. Thank goodness we checked. I called and manager said he would give me a $15 credit. First of all I would never order from them again even without this serious issue. Food was TASTELESS AND SMALL PORTIONS. I requested a...

This place use to be great but it has gone downhill fast. The portion s are small and not.very.flavourful and the service is.the worst. They seem to still do a good take out business as it was very busy but sit down...forget about it.

Consistently good every time. Meals are fresh and tasty. Fast pick up service is my preference. Never had any problems with service or food.

Ok, it's pretty good Chinese food, I'll admit. It's way overpriced, but that's probably due to the amount of serving staff that creepily stands behind/in front of you and watches you eat! We've been a couple of times and noticed this, but this was the worst yet. It's a very uncomfortable feeling to be watched, and the moment your fork... More

We love eating in the dining room. Although pricey, its worth the experience. We tried to order in last night and were sadly disappointed. The food was cold, the ribs were fatty, the portions were small and the price was a premium. Never do that again!

Cynthia's has the best reputation for Asian Cuisine and its well earned. No matter what you order it is served hot, fresh and plentiful..well worth the $$$ absolutely...great Chili Chicken

The food is always fabulous. Service is usually great, occasionally it is slow. Wait staff excellent except one time when the waiter's personal hygiene was questionable. That was several years ago though. Often order take out although that is very pricey.

A wonderful restaurant visually. Ordered Peking duck take out...was not very impressive. duck was cold and hard(not moist) . I guess if you want decent duck have it in restaurant. Also very costly.

Had a family birthday party mid week. Very quiet so received plenty of attention. The food was good as usual - tasty and fresh. Not as good as the flagship restaurant by the Promenade Mall - go there if you have a choice.

The restaurant itself is fairly nice, with the service and serving staff also pleasant. the food is "ok" very expensive for what you get and VERY "North Americanized" Again, nothing was bad. We ate the majority of what was brought out. Based on the numerous positive / glowing reviews, it seems as though those in New Market and area just... More
