Discovered China Republic while searching for a place near Ontario Mills. The service was amazing. Our waiter and other servers pitched in to make sure all of our needs were met. The food was delicious and served promptly. Substitutions to make my dish vegan we’re accommodated. I look forward to returning.

The lit up sign is on the front of the building. As you walk up the doors are black glass, with a piece of paper, on the door I couldn't read was on the door. I tried one door and it didn't open. I thought it was closed, apparently others did too. I tried the other door and your standing in the restaurant, an awkward entry, but it's a big, beautiful spacious place. Menus too big for tables with lazy Susan's in the middle, dark, and hard to read, glad I looked at the menu in line before I got there. The BBQ platter looked better on the menu, than in person, tasted okay but our party didn't eat much of it. The mainstream Chinese Food was good, dumplings good. I wouldn't reorder the pickled mushrooms. It's a very nice place, food is interesting.

Great service. One of the plates we ordered was not up to par and the staff immediately offered to take it off the order!

Started off shaky because their reservation system with open table wasn’t up to par, but from the moment we were actually seated everything else was excellent from service to food all the way through glad we didn’t let our first impression get the better of us. Definitely recommend

Delicious food! We got the BBQ platter. They were out of the cold chicken so we substituted the spicy salt shrimp. Everything was awesome. We also had hot and sour soup. A small was enough for two people to have a cup each. We also had a pork chow fun. All delicious!

First time at this restaurant.

Arrival was odd. No hostess. Then someone came by….we had a reservation….but since we made it just prior to our arrival, we were told we would have to wait. Huh? It was a brief wait, but it was strange.

Food portions were ample. Quality was very good. Pricing was higher than a typical Chinese restaurant, but understandable given the portion sizes and quality of ingredients. Most items seemed to be made fresh. We had potstickers, Kung Pao Chicken, steamed fish and Ma Po Tofu. We would order each of these again.

Service was good, although the server attempted to upsell us on one of our dishes.

Restaurant had a nice ambiance and was very clean.

One concern is the $30 corkage fee. Very excessive for a Chinese restaurant with a limited wine list. $10-15 seems more commensurate with this type of restaurant, especially since the thick stemware they had were of very poor quality.

All in all, we had a good experience and would consider a return visit.

The food, service and atmosphere was amazing. Our server Amy was beyond helpful, she recommended some dishes to us, when we really couldn’t make a decision, she was awesome. Kudos to her, super sweet and all around excellent customer service! We went outside the box and tried new things, we were not let down, all I can say is , we cannot wait to go back!

Service was bad
Food was ok
Place was super slow compare to other
Resturants in the complex’s
Lux kitchen was full
We asked fir more rice Right before we left it was 9 o’clock and they told us at the kitchen was close Mr. opening hours is till 10 PM. That explains why this Chinese restaurant is very Slow This is the first time we go to Chinese restaurant in our life and have an experience like this that explains why this restaurant is super slow won’t come back again

The food is amazing! Pricey, but worth it.

Although it is family oriented, personally, I feel this is more of a Special Occasion, Date Night, Birthday Celebration type of setting.

The place is nice but honestly extremely overpriced for Chinese food. I spent $100 here ordering the same thing I would order at a mom and pop shop for no more than $15 dollars with the same size food portion .

The food was very fresh and delicious! I realize it’s more of a communal style restaurant where typically people share dishes. The poor waiter; he encouraged us to not do separate checks but we did.. He was very gracious about it!! We got the dumplings and egg rolls: AMAZING! And my friend and I shared the BBQ meat plater. Excellent meat! The main dishes were a bit pricey but I think everything else was well priced. I hope to return :)

Excellent! Love the elegant decor and authentic flavors of the dim sum. My guests loved it and we'll certainly back. Service had a few bumps, but were rectified cheerfully.

An addition of vegetarian dim sum items would be nice. They did not have any vegetarian dumplings, and dumplings is what dim sum is about.

The food was good, but nothing exceptional.

The service was not the greatest, to say the least. The food was delivered piecemeal, so some items were untouched.

Thank you Nonna 1 for your review, if you could please specify what we were lacking in the service so that we may improve on it. We are a family-style restaurant and deliver our food as it is made unless a request is made.
