This place is terrible. It was New Year's Eve, and there were tons of people. I saw an old grandma and grandma complaining about the service, and the manager just yelled at them. They finally got their dishes 1 hour later. My opinion is that this place isn't a very good place. The lineup went all the way outside onto... More

Visited this restaurant on the recommendation of the hotel concierge where I was staying. Visited with a group of colleagues. There are not a lot of tables for groups larger than 4 and so we had to wait some time (20-30 minutes) to get a table. However once we were seated we enjoyed some delicious food. Service was a little... More

We have been coming here of and on for more than 2 decades and the food, atmosphere, popularity and service are still certainly worth a visit if you are looking for good value in Toronto's main China town: we enjoyed the crispy black cod, ginger chicken and sweet & sour pork (check out the menu items on the wall). Highly... More

This was very much worth the 40 minute walk. A small but well packed restaurant full of customers. I opted for the meal for one - Jumbo honey garlic chicken wings. Steamed rice. Hot sour soup. Beef with spring onion and ginger. Deep fried banana. Green tea. All for $18 Amazing value, and not cheap tasting food either!! And one... More

I ordered the dinner special to go. $12 for soup, choice of meat, rice and then dessert. It was so good. Wonton soup homemade wontons with shrimp inside. Then Sichuan chicken with rice. Deep fried banana with honey for dessert. It was so good, next time I hope I can stay to eat my meal.

Crowded, busy and we didn't know we were to fill out our food order on the tiny paper the person who seated us put in the middle of our table. There was limited server interaction. We eat at many Chinese restaurants, this one had average food at best. Way too expensive for the small portions and quality we received.

Staying in Chinatown

Neighborhood Profile
Chinatown
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.
