We have eaten here for years, but went on Jan. 11/17 for lunch. The food was inferior to past lunches and both my husband and I have had diarrhea but no other flu like symptoms since then. We both had the Red Dragon soup and ceasar salads but both had different burgers. The crab and scallop burger was hardly cooked... More

Checked out the Mad Chef Cafe after being recommended by a few friends. The service was excellent, food was very tasty with huge portions. Friends had the burgers which were unbelievable. I had the Red Neck Mac and Cheese which was very yummie, not your standard mac and cheese. Would high recommend this fun and tasty restaurant.

Mad Chef is our family favourite. It would also be a solo favourite, or couple favourite. They serve awesome food, have great service and a super cool atmosphere. Great place for a date, or to bring the whole family. Every time we have a house guest, we bring them there to experience it. Everything we have ever ordered was ridiculously... More

Its a long way for us to travel but the food served here is always so creative and good. Tuna appy, salads and burgers are the best.
