Hidden gem 💎 in Chinatown

If you’re having trouble finding this place it’s in the green City Plaza pavilion (see pictures for more detail). Inside you’ll find a small food court and it’s the on the left past the hairdressers.

Huge selection of dishes to try. I grabbed the Veggie House noodle soup, and the tofu rolls.

The lady behind the counter was super sweet and helpful. I sat in and she brought some tea 🍵

The portions are huge! The soup was really nice, and filling. The tofu rolls were great too, haven’t had anything like those.

Pros: Very filling , Huge portions , Sweet staff

Hidden gem!

It's a tad hard to get to, but that won't stop me from visiting whenever I'm in town. They've got a huge selection of all vegan foods and are very friendly.

Pros: Huge selection, All vegan

Cons: Hard to get to

Reminds me of HK

This was my first stop after checking into my downtown hotel, and it was exactly what I wanted. Quick, simple, no fuss, good portions, and satisfying. They speak Cantonese and the menu is in English/Chinese.

Not so tasty, but

My girl liked the food better. Maybe I'll try something else next time.
Not pricey, but a dusty and loud place.

Amazing value & taste

My husband and I got lunch here and it’s amazing! Huge, tasty portions for great prices. Highly recommend the ginger beef over fried rice, but everything was so good you can’t go wrong.

Not as good as last time

Ordered via door dash and was not happy with the food at all, my first visit in 2019 was great, but this meal (special rice, chow mein, chikn drumsticks and spring rolls) was not up to par. Everything tasted of poor quality and the flavours were off. Very disappointed.

Amazing !

Worth searching this place out and don’t let the decor put you off. Situated in an inconspicuous food court, this place is a real gem ! Lovely staff and a huge choice of food. All cooked fresh and tasting amazing ! Our only problem was choosing what to have. We’re only here for two nights and we might go back tomorrow ❤️

Pros: Lots of vegan options, Cooked fresh, Lovely staff

Cons: Having to choose !

Adding to the countless 5 star reviews! My partner and I loved our food 😍 We ordered dumplings, chow mein, and the main sweet n sour dish. Everything came out amazing! The portions were MASSIVE so we were able to eat our leftovers for dinner the next night too! The menu is extensive and for the price it’s a no brainer. Plenty of great choices. I strongly recommend the dumplings 🤤

Pros: All vegan now, Huge portions , The dumplings 🥟😍

Fantastic Chinese food

Absolutely delicious. Not sure if they've stopped using eggs or not, but according to their Skip the Dishes menu pretty well everything seems to be vegan. Everything I've tried was delicious, but the garlic dry ribs were fantastic . Will definitely be back!

Pros: Lots of vegan options, Delicious food

There are tons of options at it seems that they can basically all be made vegan. The staff is super friendly and the food is delish! Prices are reasonable too.

This place is so delicious. Usually I just go and ask for whatever the heck they want to make me and it’s always delicious. The mixed gluten you can get there is DELISH!

I've eaten from Happy Veggie House at least 10 times now. Every single time the quality is amazing and the portions are huge. This is hands down my go to in Calgary for comfort food.

I highly recommend the Black Pepper Chicken and the Sweet n Sour Pork. But honestly.. you can't go wrong with anything!

Pros: Lots of veggies, Big portions, Fantastic mock meats

Always Great Food and Friendly Service

The food at Happy Veggie is always amazing. I don't think I have had anything there that I don't like and the selection is huge. My favorite is the eel, gluten platter (which is massive and can easily be a meal on its own), and pineapple fried rice. The owner is super friendly and always very accommodating. The value is also really good especially considering the price of other Chinese veggie options in Calgary.

Pros: Huge selection, Large portions, Friendly staff

Inventive veggie options

Got this as take out given the current pandemic situation. we got the mock ginger beef made from taro root. Really enjoyed it. Probably tastier in house as it would be more crispy. Also got a few other dishes. Thought the mock meat was okay but I'm not really into mock meat as I prefer vegetables instead. My boyfriend really liked it all though. Cant wait to visit in person.

Pros: Inventive veggie options
