Dim Sum Surprise

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.

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.

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.
