We had a dim sum lunch there … very nice food with lots of varieties. The setting was excellent - there are several rooms - inside ones are better. The service was good.

Its been a family tradition to have dim sum here every summer when we are in Toronto. There was a big line today so we waited patiently. We were next in line and the host ignored us to pull two people out of the line behind us, they exchanged some words in their native dialect and showed them to a... More

Let me begin by saying that I have been a loyal customer for many years. I have brought many friends to this restaurant introducing them to the food therefore becoming regular patrons themselves. I have gone there many times and understand that sometimes it may take 15 minutes for the waiter to notice you waving your arms and it may... More

Don't expect friendly, talkative servers. But our shared table mates steered us tossed the right dishes - dumplings, friend sesame balls, and other items that were new to my palate but delicious.

For those in the know, this is a popular place for dim sum. For me, it was somewhere new. I had not ventured in to any dim sum restaurant for some time and I was not sure what to expect there. The service was efficient and quick. But really, the food is excellent. They offer a nice variety of dishes... More

We arrived and we greeted buy a friendly staff anxious to bring an array of our choices of the dim sum menu. The restaurant was very clean and food was tasty. Thank you. I will be back.

I had no choice to select a famous Dim Sum Restaurant in downtown. Many reviewer including my guest recommended it here. You might come there, however you have to prepare enduring your mind about not clean and to pay tip more than 10% although you don't satisfy their service. Counter guy(owner?) demands over 10% tips with loud voice when you... More

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 are the ones who would go all out and... 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.
