Great everything

We were in Chinatown and wanted dinner, so Tripadvisor to the rescue....And Tripadvisor was right again! Great restaurant, and we asked the waiter to just surprise us with food. His selections were perfect, not cheap but great! We had a wonderful time, very enjoyable.

Have been looking for a first rate restaurant in Chinatown since we moved to Toronto three years ago - finally found one! Definitely many cuts above average!

Just went here with my mom. From the outside it didnt really look big promising, but once inside it was full of people. Nice ambiance. The vegetables we ordered (spring beans and another one i cant recall the name of) were good, but too much garlic. So if ure gonna order a veggie with garlic, make sure to ask them... More

Came here on a Sunday night and the restaurant was very busy and full of regulars. We had to queue for a few minutes, but there is a quick turnover of tables thanks to the fast service. The beef and avocado was particularly good. All the meat was very tender.

This restaurant was recommended to us by the concierge in our hotel, the Royal York, and it did not disappoint. It was pretty full on this Frday evening, but the concierge had called ahead to ensure that there would be a table for us by the time we arrived after a five minute taxi trip. The atmosphere was buzzing with... More

I have been a customer since 1979 and have had the same waiters (Bill and Ivan). The food is delectable; the service enviable. They have a neon sign in the window that reads No MSG. Unfortunately, these fine people, including the owner, David Lee who is, by the way, the main chef do not know that MSG has 40 different... More

Real Chinatown, as good as NY or SF although cleaner. Even had tablecloths. Block is a little dodgy at night, I suggest a cab.

We truly enjoyed our meal and the creative menu. The beef tenderloin with avocado was delicious. I've never seen this on a Chinese menu before. Also the green beans with garlic and the chicken with pineapple in a nest were fantastic. We were very pleased with our choices, but the food on our neighbor's table looked and smelled amazing too!... More

Lee Garden has some mighty good food. Our party of seven had lunch here and thoroughly enjoyed the experience. The food was delicious and the seafood dishes were reasonably priced. They may not be the most generous of servings, but they were not skimpy either. Try to deviate from the normal Chinese fare (i.e. fried rice, sweet and sour pork,... More

You realise when you arrive how popular this place is, had to queue for a table. Food was excellent, huge portions great service, although the wine wasn't great. Wish this Chinese was near my house!

Toronto's main Chinatown has the honor of being the largest in North America. Gaping down across Dundas Street West and Spadina Avenue, the area is a wonderful medley of shops and restaurants, busy signs and bright red gates, a destination for foodie fun. Chinatown's streets are always bustling, packed with people and outdoor stalls hawking fresh produce and products. The restaurants and authentic marketplaces that shoulder in against each other display shining roast ducks and menus studded with dumplings and noodle bowls. The air is pervaded with music. different languages, and the smell of fried food and mouth-watering desserts. Chinatown's restaurants represent a broad range of fare, from traditional Szechuan and Shanghai foods, to other Asian delicacies, including some of the top Japanese, Vietnamese, and Korean spots in the city. Whether you're in the mood for a sit-down tea house or a bubble tea to go, Chinatown is the spot to enjoy an exciting walk and the promise of leaving satisfied.
