As much as I like the food here, I won't be going back because of something that happened with a waitress. When it was time to pay the bill, I tried to use the touch screen to select the tip, but it didn't seem to work (I guess I didn't press hard enough?) so I then tried to press another button on the keyboard because I thought it would correspond to one of the tip options. However the card machine registered that as no tip, so I ended up paying without the tip. The waitress then started asking about me, pretending she was interested in my life but in fact just wanted to know where I was from (Europe, where tipping is a lot different from here). She then proceeded to lecture me about how in Canada you have to tip, complete with the "I know in your contry that don't do that" and all. Both myself and my friend I was having lunch with were pretty shocked at how confrontational she was. Especially considering that me not tipping was accidental, it definitely took me aback. Regardless of that, it was a very uncomfortable minute and the worst experience I've had with a server here. I have been here before and was planning to come back, but I definitely won't be back because of how obnoxious this waitress was.

Since we've discovered this little gem we've come weekly. The food, the ambience and especially "Chi" who adds such a personal touch makes it so special.

Love, love, love this place!

Cauliflower appie was cold. Sent back for retry. Found food generally did not live up to my standards. Ganache sounded fancy. Tasted quite blah. Sauce on noodle dish equally unimpressive. Salty and no real “depth” to taste. Portions also quite small. Poor value.

The best restaurant I’ve tried in a while! Beautiful atmosphere, the lighting and music are perfect. Very clean, and taking Covid precautions seriously. We tried the vegetable rolls, the potstickers, the tofu bowl, and the turmeric fish bowl. All of them were AMAZING! The vegetable rolls were by far the best I’ve had, and I’ll be going back just for that. You can tell they know what they are doing in the kitchen! Oh and the dessert- to die for. You can’t go wrong here. Will be back ASAP

This was the best restaurant I have ever been to. My family is vegan and I eat everything and OMG, who knew vegan food could be made like this so well. We tried about half of the menu and it was all amazing. The best part was the food was fresh and clean so even if you ate too much you didn’t feel horrible. I recommend this restaurant to anyone and everyone.

A very enjoyable dining experience.
A romantic setting, with outstanding food. We had the Veggie Rolls, plus the Char-Grilled Eggplant for starters. Both were delicious.
For mains we had Neetball Masala, and the Duk Lettuce Wraps. Both were very flavourful, and filling.
A outstanding evening with great service.

Chi was exceptional. The flavour and complexity of the dishes was so satisfying and I’m already plotting my next return.
Pandemic precautions were thoughtful and effective and seamless. I felt safe and relaxed and the passion that the Chi staff has for the food is obvious.
My husband, not a vegan, said it was one of the best meals he has had in a long time and he eats well!

They changed their menu and a few satpale items like crepes and the bang mi burger didn't make it. Pretty sad since there were outstanding. I had the laksa soup and it was missing a hint of lemongrass or ginger to make it pop. It was too creamy

Great food, very refreshing and well balanced! The pho was my favorite, especially since I never thought I could like so many interesting different flavors, all combined in one dish! Just delicious! great staff, friendly and making sure we have had everything we needed. We will definitely go back more often!

The service while seemingly divided between multiple different staff was timely and friendly. The food was great but fell slightly short of what we would have wanted, ideally. As plant-based eaters from Montreal and Vancouver we are very experienced in eating at vegan/PB alternative restaurants and we had a few constructive criticisms for the dishes we ordered. This being said, overall, we enjoyed our meals.

It’s my 2nd time here. The 1st was a 5* but have to take off 2* for the poor service this time. Whilst there were 3 staff on the floor, only 1 could take orders. We weren’t drinkers and weren’t too impressed with the non-alcoholic beverages (which we had tried during our first visit); hence, did not order any. Although we have already told the server we were ready to order our food when she tried to ask us about the drinks, she made us wait. She would rather be cleaning tables than taking our order - btw, there was no other customers waiting.
When she came over alas, we said we wanted to try the spicy tuna roll. She told us it was sold out (our reservation was at 7). This threw us off so we have to re-decide - wonder why she didn’t let us know when she seated us or any time during the long wait. Anyway. So we were a little indecisive between 2 dishes so we asked for her suggestion. She simply said they are very different - like, we couldn’t read the menu. Other places would be much more helpful in this regard (eg based on what we had ordered or asked about our preferences). She was just focused in upselling - insisting that we order 2 apps and 2 mains. We would have if you had the spicy tuna roll. We ended up ordering just 3 apps, 1 main and a dessert, she showed us her disappointed face. We found the amount of food to be just right despite her saying that we ordered too little.

I had a good first experience at Chi Vegan for a dinner date with my husband. The food was delicious and the ambiance was very classy and clean. Service was good although a little bit slow. Our food did not come out together and so my husband ended up waiting quite a while so we could eat together when my food came out too. I felt the dishes were a little on the pricier side for what they were. Nevertheless we would come back to try more of their menu. I applaud them for changing their menu to fully vegan.

Our servers (plural) were crap. We had to keep hailing them for menus, water, napkins, more water.
Completely ruined the first time experience. I understand Covid but it wasn’t busy.
