Dim Sum All Day

Found this place online and it was as good as the reviews. It looks like a dump but there was a line so we knew it must be good. Large selection of dumplings and fried dishes. All are fresh and tasty. Cheap so order all you want.

My Wife and I come here for Dim Sum every time that we visit Toronto. The food here is really good and very authentic. The prices are reasonable and it's as good as you will find dim sum. We have come here for the past 6 years or so and it's a place we go to as soon as we... More

Pork dumplings were not great. The orange chicken was not typical and the service was slow. Sweet and and sour chicken above average. Overall maybe try and find a better place in Chinatown.

The house of 'all day, breakfast-lunch-dinner'dim sum. This is a vvvvverrry popular spot for both locals and visitors, chinese and Caucasians. The waiting is mercifully short with the added huge extension at the back. The dim sums are freshly steamed, pipingly hot, aromatically tempting and deliciously yummy. HO, HO, SIC AH!!!!! Geez, maybe I'll come back for another round at... More

One of Toronto's most famous Dim Sum restaurants. Do NOT let the small entrance way fool you... once inside, there are actually "two" seating areas... the front that you see from the road/main entrance and the back area, which is three times as large. Expect on weekends and at lunch to wait in line... 15 to 20 minutes is the... More

Had dim sum here late at night, around 10-ish. Pork buns were very good. Most dim sum items were good or very good. Not the greatest Chinese food in Toronot by any means, but service was decent and the place was relatively clean. Most items reasonably priced, but some are a bit pricey (e.g. the shrimp dumplings are close to... More

The Dim Sum "Yum Cha" at Rol San is always fresh, hot and consistently good. The service is fast, friendly and the staples are all there. The staff are buzzing around continually bringing out bamboo containers, so the turnover is high and that means fresh, fresh. Been here numerous times in my life and it never disappoints.

We are dim sum foodies and were staying at the Ritz Carlton Toronto. The front driveway bellman, Jason, recommended this place and he steered us right. The taxi was only $10 including tip. The meal was quite fresh, hot and tasty. The restaurant opened up at 9am Sunday and we were seated first. We ordered 4 fav items and the... More

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.
