Excellent dim sum. Make sure you go hungry and with a fat wallet.

Besides Empire Court, this place has some of the best dim sum, and arguably the most authentic Cantonese cuisine least tainted by Western influences in GTA.

Over priced and not very good. Very nice atmosphere to take a date but if they have any tastebuds they won't be impressed.

5 stars because it is frequently recommended by egullet members for best dim sum.

Excellent dim sum but I was disappointed with the abalone one. Must go with more people so you can try out noodle dishes as they are too big for just 2 people. Definitely worth the money - life is too short to eat bad food!
