Have eaten there many times. Pleasant, efficient staff. Enchanting decor and most of all, the food is always good. This is the ONLY Chinese restaurant worth dining in if you're in Owen Sound.

Love the Chaning's food. Lots to choose from but our favorite is the Chaning bowls, chicken balls (order sauce on the side) spring rolls and eggs rolls. Lots of room and they can accommodate a larger group. We always order extra so we make sure there are leftovers for the next day's lunch.

Just oil everywhere. I mean insane amount if oil. Lemon chicken almost burnt, like so fried it's just a thin dark husk. And burnt noodles, how do you burn noodles? Hear great things but got just oil and burnt noodles. I think this is the worst Chinese food I have ever had. Sad cause I don't get why it's so... More

Had Channing Restaurant, Chinese food on New Years Day. It was delicious. Honey garlic chicken balls, sweet & sour chicken balls, & sesame chicken are my favourites. Portions are generous and freshly made, and quite reasonable.

Good overall quality of food and service. I have made several visits (on recommendation from locals) and have always been happy with the experience. If your used to European iterations of Chinese food it worths to note that even the spicy dishes are not as spicy as you might be accustomed to, and that there is a "Canadian touch" on... More
