Very nice restaurant

A very nice small Chinese restaurant. Price is reasonable. The heavy garlic crab is my favorite dish and I almost have it every time I go there. During weekdays, they also pay for your parking if you park at James Short. Oh, they are not open on Mondays. Don't forget to ask for Chinese menu. If you don't understand Chinese, ask waitress to explain the Chinese menu for you. They have special meal for 2, 4, 6 or more people.

I like the food

I've been to this place with my family while I was going back to Calgary for a visit. I like the food there. I remember I was here for dinner and I got some pretty decent Chinese food from this place. I never got a chance to tried out dim sum from them though. Maybe next time I visited I suggest to my family we go for dim sum here.

Price is good

We have family dinner tonight and has ordered the 10 people combo dinner. Size is big and is good for 12 people if you are not the big eater. However, they are slow and service need improvement. They could be more friendly. Price is good and they have some special price menu that price is set for 2 dishes

Our go to restaurant

Our go to restaurant for Authentic Chinese Dinner. Consistently good quality and portions are large. Their Peking duck is great along with the baked crab on rice. Service could be improved, but you don't really go to a Chinese restaurant for the service... I have never been next door for the Viet food but I hear it isn't the best.

Quantity, value and taste

If you want quantity, value and taste, this is a sure thing. By vancouver standards, their dishes are monstrous--as pics indicate w/ the bok choy, it's enough to feed a family of 4, maybe even 6!

The pork belly w/ mui choy was good, though i've had it better back home in Richmond by szechuan chefs but still tasty.

nice clean resto, good customer service and free parking. Not one your typical hole in the wall as it seems to be in a well to do burb, up in Edgemont. that even sounds high-end lol

Good enough place

Good enough place, where you don't need to drive far. Quality of food is pretty good for the suburbs, unlike many fake Chinese restaurants. If you live close I would give this place a try for authentic food.

Yummy!

Went here last year and I loved their Chinese fondue (da-bee-noe) because it also included fresh fish, which is now rare with Chinese fondue.

Bobby Chao’s Chinese Cuisine and Dim Sum
#18 – 34 Edgedale Drive NW
Calgary, AB
(403) 207-7840

When you look at Chinese cuisine, I find it to be an interesting study in regionalism. While we often lump “Chinese” food together into one category, I can think of no other culture that has such a clear differentiation in ingredients, styles, and techniques between regions. Whether it’s four, eight,... more

Had the famous crispy chicken here for dinner. One piece of the chicken I was having was pink around the bone and bloody. We told the waitress and she told us, "it's normal for Cantonese chicken dishes to be a little bit raw." I am not Cantonese so I might not know the custom. They didn't even say sorry but offered us a 10 % off. They offered the 10% off meaning they do know it is raw and... more

I've been to Bobby Chao's about 3 times now. It would not be my first choice for Chinese food but if you are looking for fairly authentic Chinese food in Edgemont it's a good place. I have to say that I was disappointed with my last meal. I had a craving for Salt & Pepper squid and the squid was a tad overcooked and tended to the rubbery side. The Snow Pea leaves with Garlic sauce was just OK.... more

I usually order delivery from this place which arrives promptly and hot! The driver is always courteous and pleasant and the food NEVER fails to please. It is tasty, never to greasy or salty with just the right amount of kick! If there is a glitch in the just eat app, they always call to confirm my order before sending. Which, I appreciate and shows the high level of service standards they offer!

Ordered their combination dinner for 1, had won ton soup, chicken fried rice, ginger beef and sweet and sour pork (a substitution). Their won ton soup is excellent, that is my favourite dish to get at any Chinese food restaurant and they nailed it.

The rest of the meal was quite good, I would definitely order from them again.

Their delivery is fast also!

This is my favourite place for Chinese delivery. Everything is delicious and the staff is great. The ginger beef is comparable to none, and everything is always hot and fresh. If you don't order from Bobby Chao you're doing it wrong.

What a pleasant surprise! They upgraded the tables and chairs! The servers are happy (they smile now)! The best thing is that you can now actually read the bill (the items listed are both in English and Chinese). We still haven't tried their Vietnamese fare or roast items (they now sell roast duck, roast pork, BBQ pork, soy chicken) yet.

P.S. Their French style baked oysters are still the best... more

Wow. Upgraded furnishings, and the servers now smile at you! Best of all, the dim sum is as good as I remember it, if not better, and the portions are generous. Shanghai soup dumplings, shrimp dumplings, radish cake, scallop and choice soft rice crepes, beef and flat rice noodles, beef congee, sticky rice, breaded salt and pepper pork chops, shiu mai, even mango pudding was good! This is my 5th... more

I MISS CONGEE QUEEN! Moving to Calgary from Toronto, I've been on the search for my Chinese staple. Congee queen in Toronto is the best! (see my review for it for a better understanding)

So I decided to try Bobby's in search of my Chinese staple and unfortunately it was just OK for me. We came on a Sunday afternoon so the main location was closed and all customers were redirected to their Pho... more

We were in the neighborhood and decided we felt like Vietnamese. Upon arriving at Bobby Pho's, it was clearly a Chinese restaurant but they did have a Vietnamese menu as well. It was very busy and everyone there was eating Chinese food. I didn't see any Vietnamese dishes. We ordered two vermicelli bowls; Charbroiled Chicken and Spring Rolls and the Lemon Grass Pork chop with Spring rolls. When... more

Well, it's been three years since I've been so we decided to try it again last night. Very nice surprise from last time - change of ownership and direction of food and service.

They have expanded and added to their menu - it now has Pho and fresh roasted meats (BBQ Pork, Chicken, Duck, Pork Belly). The Sifu who was at Happy Valley in Chinatown is the guy who runs the roasted meats here and it... more

I will say that the dim sum here is actually pretty good.

I will also say that the staff here are among the most sour, joyless and unpleasant I've ever been subjected to. What makes it worse is that you practically have to light a napkin on fire to get their attention, it's actually ridiculous.

It's too bad, because there aren't a lot of options for good dim sum outside of downtown, so I find... more

Never again!!!! Horrible service as the waitresses brought us the wrong food, and would never hear us trying to get their attention. On top of that they took 20 minutes to get us a can of sprite and the fried rice took way longer than it should have. The blender was being used right in the middle of the restaurant and was EXTREMELY loud. We won't be returning any time soon....or ever! Don't... more

I was really craving Pho and nothing was open, so my boyfriend suggested we check out Bobby Chao's in Edgemont, since it's super close. Seems like there are two separate restaurants, one for Chinese Food/Dim Sum, and one for Vietnamese/Pho. Slightly confusing, especially as we walked into the Viet side and were told to go to the other side, as it was closed. Walking in on the other side felt... more

We have been to Bobby Chao's since his small restaurant days on 36 Street SE in Forest Lawn. Even back then, I recognize immediately that this Bobby Chao guy knows how to cook well. Fast forward to today, the restaurant is much bigger and in the NW where there is a big Chinese population. We do not come here too often, but when restaurants closer to our home is packed full. Bobby Chao always... more

I've frequented this restaurant quite a bit dining in as well as take out. Dishes typically range in the $12 - $14 range. The food has been consistently good and the place has always been busy regardless of the night.

Service has always been good as well

It is not a place that I would go out of my way to get to but would be considered a good bet for NW residents looking for good food, decent... more

Was recently treated to a wonderful Hong Kong-style dinner which included duck egg yolk coated fried softshell crab, an especially good value for the sizeable and meaty specimens priced at $6 apiece, spicy wok-fried dungeness crab, Hong Kong Style steak nuggets in a piquant sauce, sauteed pea pod shoots in broth and an oyster and tofu clay pot.

Dishes are prepared well and generous in portion.... more

Had dim sum again at Bobby Chao's.

This time we wanted to try different items:

- House Special Dumplings - minced pork with ginger and garlic - very freshly made and tastes really good - the skin is like the Chui Chow Dumplings (with peanuts) but the skin is not tough like some other dim sum places

- Hot Pot Rice with Pork, Salty Fish & Egg - this came last 'cos I guess it took a while to... more

My parents are landed immigrants from southern mainland China and don't complain when we go out to Bobby Chao's to eat. This says a lot because they are very picky folks and are generally hard to please whether it be the flavor or the price. Any of you with first gen parents from any other culture can probably relate.

This place has some unique items for dinner such as fresh crab baked in rice... more
