Excellent Chinese Food

Service was quick and food was delicious! The Water Cress soup was awesome! They made a special BBQ Pork pineapple Fried Rice for us which was excellent! There were many chef's specialties to choose from as well!

DO NOT count on your food arriving in a reasonable timeframe. Took 2 hrs for dinner to come and didn't offer a discount or honour late night menu prices as the time of delivery was considered well into late night. Never going to order or go there in person again.

Ok, this is an old school restaurant with above average decor - if that is important to you. If you're like me, just a clean restaurant with good food is all that I request. It all depends on who is your server, some are good and some are unfriendly, but we don't come here for the service, go the mandarin... More

I ordered a tofu cury sauce and it was the worst meal I ate in my whole life. just don't go there, it's smells really weird inside the place and the staff is not super polite. I recommend you to visit Guu Isakaya on Church street, which is way better and less pricely

While I generally prefer Scarborough for Chinese food, whenever I find myself near the downtown core this is one of my go to spots! It's clean, bright and the food is tasty! An awesome place to stop for lunch, dinner, or late night fare. Yum yum.

Excellent Chinese food in Toronto's downtown Chinatown. The food is fresh leaning to Cantonese flavors. The seafood is a standout- you should ask your server if they recommend any catch as particularly fresh. Order oysters or scallops cooked in shell when available. Fresh greens are also available and it is worth asking for their recommendations for these as well. Hot... More

New Ho King at Spadina Avenue in Chinatown is clean, cozy and offer a good variety. We ordered delicious sweet chicken corn soup and seafood soup, seafood plate with shrimps, scallops, calamari, and broccoli. The staff is friendly and efficient.

I had walked into the restaurant with my Family to seat ourself which was fine. We had our 8 month old with us in a stroller so we picked the front area so we didn't have to go up the stairs and we would be out of people's way. The server recommended the table beside ours because it would even... More

Don't bother!!!! The staff are so rude that the reasonable (not amazing) food doesn't make up for it. I'd never go back and I would NOT recommend!

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.
