Awesome service professional great ginger beef!
Lived this experience, music was alittle to loud .
Delicious food but very pricey! Worth going for a treat!
Please bring back the egg rolls. Please. I'm not sure I'll be able to come to my favorite restaurant until they're back...
Great fusion food. Friendly and helpful waitress. On the pricier side
Wonderful food, excellent service, fantastic ambiance.
The service was outstanding! The food was excellent.
We were there on a Wednesday night. The restaurant was so noisy, I couldn't hear 2 people who were in our party of 6. The noise wasn't only due to the music, but it didn't help. Our server looked at me doubtfully when I requested that they turn down the volume. Nothing changed. I don't understand why they need to create such a clamorous environment on a Wednesday.
The room had a blast of cold air running straight through every time the door opened.
Our server was patient but his attention was patchy and I was very dismayed to have an automatic 18% gratuity slapped on - for a party of 6! What's next? Will it be automatic for parties of 4 next?
My partner and I love a new dining experience. Two Penny's food is amazing. Portions are quite small - we did want to order the Ginger Beef, however, it was $40!! They did state it was quite fatty. We steered clear. The wine while delicious, was expensive, cheapest on the menu was $60. The food was delicious and very flavorful. We had the mushroom dumplings they were amazing - crispy and hot. We then had a charred cabbage leaf with cashews it was really good as well. Opting out of the ginger beef we went for the Almond Chicken and Fried rice. The almond chicken was great - portion really small, the fried rice with bone marrow awesome. It's a great experience with tiny portions of deliciousness but too pricey...
It was overall quite enjoyable - it was unfortunate that my S.O. and I were tight on time so we weren’t able to stay as long as we’d liked and had to knock off an item in order to make it to our appointment. But decoration is lovely, Asian with a modern twist. I appreciate the’s chef’s modern take on traditional Chinese dishes. Wasn’t absolutely outstanding but it was tasty. Can’t necessarily say I agree with the price on some of the items, more so smaller plates for a higher price seems to be more so the theme here. But I’d give it an overall 4/5 since Gordon, our server was very attentive and flexible, and the ambience is was quite nice.
Our server was delightful. She gave us great suggestions for food and drinks. The food was simply amazing and we went there during happy hour so the price was great as well.
Expensive, noisy, impersonal service - "free for all"
The vegetarian options need work
We finally made it to Two-Penny for dinner and it was worth the wait!
Their were six of us, and the waitress recommended that we pick a few items and share them. Everything we had was full of flavour! The Beef and Broccoli was out of this world!
Our server, Kristen, was animated, very attentive and an amazing addition to the whole experience.
We will definitely be back again and again!
Some of the best food I’ve tried in Calgary, the decor was also very trendy and fun!
This restaurant was disappointing start to finish - a request to sit at a different, less crowded table was met with an unfriendly attitude, despite that the restaurant was not close to being busy. Appetizers were good but not different, nor better, than dim sum at any city restaurant and the main courses were extremely average. The $40 ginger beef was dry and lacking flavour. The rice was dry and cold. Sat and pepper squid was tough. Service was efficient but clinical. I loved the decor and the cocktails. But will not return - quite sad, because I was so excited by this concept.
Amazing as always!
Duck was fantastic. Bok choy was incredibly bland and boring.
Excellent food, great vibe! Creative menu with favorites and new things to try!
Food was very bland
Unfortunately not one ‘wow’ factor for any of the three dishes ordered. Bland and lacking all around. Disappointing after anticipating coming here. With so many exciting options in Calgary, we won’t be back.
Awesome. Our waitress (forgot her name, but with all the piercings) was awesome - thank you.
Great staff. Very helpful. Great food and very neat spot. First time and I will be back
We ordered 6 dishes from the dinner menu and all were very salty!! It's my 2nd time here coz it's my hubby's birthday. The first time was January this year, we had a pleasant dining experience so I decided to come back and celebrate with friends. We were all disappointed. Not recommending this place anymore.
First time at Two Penny. Great food and service. Will go back.
The best meal I've had in Calgary and one of the best Chinese meals I've ever had.
Nice ambience but the food gave me the runs! Service was okay
Great food, drinks and atmosphere great date night spot
Two Penny is a really good restaurant. The food is unique and terrific. We ordered several dishes and shared, which was a great way to get a variety of flavours. Two Penny is not an inexpensive place, but the food, excellent service and great ambiance make it good value.
The food was fantastic!! Loved the entire experience!
Dishes are pricey but very delicious. Carrots typhoon style were too spicy for my wife’s moderate palate, but I found them to be really good. Shanghai noodles and almond chicken were the table favourites.
I had such a great meal here. I'm Cantonese so I appreciated that Two Penny was still able to keep the authenticity of some dishes with a modern twist. I would have to say though, stay away from the sugar pie. That thing is gross.
It can be quite pricey so a good place for a special occasion. The BBQ buns and the smoked duck are more or less what you can get from a Chinese restaurant, but much more expensive.
The staff was great and very nice.
I'm glad I took the suggestion of many Calgarians to try this place out...even though I was misled by being told it was "Japanese" or "Korean...or maybe just Asian" LOL
While service was excellent, the food was disappointing. The egg rolls were thick and hard with a sauce that was meh while the potstickers with hoisin accompaniment were overwhelmed by the hoisin The drunken seafood dish was unidimensional with nothing but heat on the palate. In all cases the description promised complexity in flavours that was not delivered. Wine by the glass price was ouch. We came with high expectations...maybe too high.
Food was outstanding and the server was knowledgeable and ultra helpful
I brought three people who had never been and they all thought everything about the restaurant was great.
The food and ambiance is excellent! Perfect place for a group. Very attentive service.
Really great experience. Nice room and a nice twist on the Chinese food usually served in Calgary. Really enjoyed every dish we ordered!
Great cocktails and food; we enjoyed some dumplings to start and shared a number of items off of the menu for dinner. Portions are quite large, so maybe 2-3 items between four people plus dumplings; we ordered way too much! (Leftovers were packed neatly for the next day).
I would give it a higher mark if it does not call itself Chinese restaurant as it is not. I took some business partners from China to Two Penny as I wanted to avoid China town and have a quiet place to talk, but still have good Chinese food. Well, there are 8 big different classes of Chinese food and Two Penny Chinese is none of it, not even a mix. The menu was small and combination is different. We ordered a TouFu Bao, thinking it is Toufu in a pot slowly cooked for long time. But it was not. So it wasn't a "bao" in Chinese dish. We also had the smoked duck. The duck tasted good. But it was served with milk bun and pickles. Not sure how the chef designed this dish. The duck has bone in it so it is not meant to be put in the bun with pickles and eat it like a sandwich unless you want to manually take the bone out. Do I suppose to have one bite of the bun and one bit of the duck?
The decoration of the restaurant is not Chinese either. You might call it oriental as there are some Japanese element, some Thai element etc.
Overall, food was OK but expensive. And it is DEFINITELY NOT a Chinese restaurant.
