Great food, great service, and delicious cocktails. The salt & pepper squid is the best in the biz.
Wonderful meal as usual. Our server was outstanding and immediately put us at ease. The food was good, we all agreed that the steamed bbq buns and almond chicken were heaven sent. A lovely evening and can’t wait to go back.
Food was good, but incredibly pricey....wont rush back.
Visited the restaurant for Chinese New Year and had the set menu. Interesting take on Chinese food and it was pretty good. Slow service was the biggest issue. We waited 15 minutes or more just to get our desert (mango pudding prepared ahead of time).
I might go back to try items off of the regular menu.
Great food and fantastic service! A very enjoyable evening.
Loved the cocktails as well.
Food was unexpectedly spicy and the restaurant was very loud
Had a great time with a group of 7 on a Saturday night. Food and service was 10 out of 10. Our server for the night did an outstanding job and greatly added to our lovely experience.
Amazing cocktails. A must try
Great experience a bit over priced .. didn
Food is tasty but really heavy and rich. Cocktails are quite good. Better Asian food available for cheaper prices, but this is still a fun upscale place to try with a group of people so you can share/taste a bunch of different menu items.
Great food and service in a very cool atmosphere. Our server did a great job picking our dishes for us!
The food was very good, definitely a unique take on Chinese. I like to experience new and creative ways to prepare and combine traditional ingredients, so it works for me. If you are looking for traditional Chinese dishes, this is not for you. It would have been a 5 star experience, but the cost is on the high side for the food and drinks.
The Two Penny is limited, although that is what makes the food fantastic. Two Penny has innovative food choices, ginger beef is a slow roasted beef tenderloin with ginger sauce. So
We enjoyed the happy hour menu and the prices! Great food, great service.
Great Staff, very nice atmosphere but the food was lacking. Not sure how they rationalize calling themselves "modern Chinese" as half the menu had nothing to do with any type of Chinese cuisine. Steamed beef buns were GOOD, potstickers okay (but not near as good as Joey's) and the rest was marginal. Ended up paying $118 for a very forgettable meal for two. Visited because of the "hype"...won't do that again
It was very difficult to chat at our table for 4. The tables are large and music was loud. Food was great.
Lovely atmosphere and quality dishes must be open to strong flavors and spices.
Very attentive and quick service
Outstanding service with a super enjoyable meal. We will be back.
I was disappointed with the execution of ghe three dishes we ordered. The shrimp amd lobster dumplings were overpowered by chili oil (saying a lot coming from someone with a high heat tolerance) the texture of the foie gras rice wraps were unsettling and the sauces tasted like they came straight out of a shelf (not to mention there was a hair in the dish). The worst was the special fried rice. It was swimming in vegetable oil and was compeltely inedible. I have been to Two Penny twice before and had a pleasant experience so this may have just been an off night. But it was so off that I will not be returning. Hopefully you have a better experience than we did.
A+!! Best meal I’ve had in Calgary.
Consistent quality across all dishes. Excellent cocktails. Service isn’t especially polished, but friendly. A+ would chow again.
Great atmosphere, service is excellent with both great recommendations and very timely . We are a family of 4 with two teenage boys ... they couldn’t get enough of your steam buns and ginger beef. Just awesome. Thanks!
Great place for lunch. Food was fantastic and the service was as well.
I have been here several times. Each time there is something new to try and then some standards like the fried rice and bone marrow (a must have).
For those who don't drink alcohol they have a great mock-tail menu!
We had the lunch bowl. It was generous and delicious. Our server was excellent. It was our first time and she took the time explaining the dishes and cooking techniques. We will definitely go back!
Dined with another couple. We especially liked the potatoes, the ginger beef and the almond chicken. The fried rice with bone marrow wasn't really our thing. The carrots were great too. Our server was very attentive and helpful. We'd go back, enjoyable evening.
Well initially I screwed up on the time for my reservation so I called in and was helped out in a friendly and cheerful manner.
When we did get there the service was fantastic as was the food.
We heartily reccomend this one!
Delicious dishes with a unique twist.. will be back!
The music was too loud, otherwise, everything was great
Our party arrived early and were told that our table was still occupied. We opted to wait at the bar. Over 20 minutes after our reservation time we were finally given a different table.
We were not particularly impressed with how the situation was handled given that the table had allegedly been told another group was booked at 7:30 and were just chatting after their meal. It wasn’t until after 8 pm that they actually left. While we appreciate the awkward situation the restaurant was in it was extremely disappointing given the number of empty tables in the restaurant that it took as long as it did for rearrangements to be made to allow us to be seated.
While we were offered a glass of champagne no one actually apologized about it or seemed that concerned with the situation.
Extremely happy with our visit to Two Penny. The charred cabbage was incredible.
Amazing food with a beautiful decoration, I really recommend Two Penny!
We had a very good waiter and we had a fantastic experience. The drinks were incredible!
Went to two penny for my first time for a little friends get together. Overall had a good experience! Our server was knowledgeable, attentive and had a very charming personality. The cocktails and wine were fabulous! The food was good, for the most part! The bbq pork buns were delicious, the vegetable dishes were also incredible. I was only disappointed with the almond chicken, it had way too much batter and really lacked Flavour.
I would definitely visit two penny again!
Enjoyed the food and service. There were Vegan and vegetarian options which was great but they didn't have much of a main selection for vegans or vegetarians. I loved the sharing plates and the overall atmosphere was nice. Also the tea was fabulous! I had the lemongrass tea and it was so good! Also my husbands beer (can't remember the name) was one of the best I have ever tasted. Would go there again.
Pre Flames game meal with family
Had an amazing time, we opted for family style which gave us a taste of everything and the service was awesome!! See you again soon.
Awesome service professional great ginger beef!
