Dim Sum Lovers!

Went here seeing it was one of the most popular dim sum restaurants in toronto. However no one has put into thought the demographic of the group. To the average Chinese family this place would be mediocre. Pricing is relatively expensive and they provide priority seating to the non-Asians as they... read more

This place had wonderful dim sum and really crappy service. The food more than makes up for the bad service. Its really affordable as well. If your in Chinatown stop by.

In the heart of Chinatown, this large restaurant not only does very good all day dim sum but also has a menu with many other tasty Asian dishes. Can get very busy on the weekends so be prepared for some hectic service

This is my first time to this restaurant even though I do enjoy dim sum. I was shopping on Spadina and decided to try it. It was after 2 p.m., so it wasn't very busy. I could not believe how large it actually is. Everything was very good. I enjoyed the fried dumplings and the spring rolls very much. Although... More

I did nos see it mentioned in touristic guide or site, so I chose it. I was very lucky! More locals - Chinese - than tourists. Dim Sum menu with many options, and what we ordered was great, apart from a sticky fried eggplant. Price is excellent for the quantity and quality, lunch for 2 costed $20 CAD.

Don't expect the service, ambiance, or courtesy you may be accustomed to in a good European or North American restaurant. I notice that some non-Asian reviewers have felt somewhat discriminated against. Being of Asian descent myself, I can attest that the abrupt service and disturbingly "barky" communication style is applied universally to all non-regular customers. It irritates me, but I'm...

Pick your favorites on the pre printed menu sheet,and get custom made dim sum hot from the kitchen.No fancy decor here,just your classic plastic sheet topped table that is cleaned in an instant.To round out your visit be sure to visit Tap Phong across the street,a chefs mecca for serviceware and cooking utensils.

Such an awful service. I came here as tourists with my wife and daughter to try their dimsum. We happened to bring a peeled whole pineapple with us and asked the server if we were allowed to borrow a knife to cut it into bite size pieces. They didn't sell fresh fruit, so we thought it would be ok to... More
