We love Dim Sum, and our local place in Mississauga went out of business. After much research we decided on Rol San. Good choice - we've now been twice. It's always been busy, but not to the point that we had to wait. One time we sat in the back room, no so much ambiance, and the second time, we... More

Plan to wait - unless you get there before 10:30 there will be a line. Pick from a menu, not from carts. Don't plan to use Master Card or Amex - they don't accept them. You will have to ask for a fork - just chopsticks. Very good food.

Went to have dim sum on a Friday but a semi-holiday day so there was a queue. We were queuing outside the restaurant then a man came and told us that there was also a back room we could wait in so a lot of us went there, we discovered that there was a separate queue and ticket system for... More

Dim Sum was good and hot but note that the selections are limited and there is no cart service. Also, the spout on the teapot was disgusting. I had to take a paper towel and wipe it. But, where this restaurant really failed for me was the service. Asked for water and never received it, ever (we were the first... More

This is one place you can get dimsum, complete with hongkong taste and hongkong attitude (as in, the waiters almost throw the chinaware in setting up the table, and ask if you want to order more food while dyeing the patrons patiently waiting in the wings for an open table). Food is great, including the "Chinese French fries", which are... More

All the dim sum dishes were truly amazing. Ever since the restaurant in our home town Windsor changed their chef, we had no where to go. For all the people that complained about service and attitude. Let me tell you that, most Chinese restaurants are not known to have great service. If it has great food, people will come. Most... More

Have been a few times and loved the food. Typical slightly curt service you get in most asian restaurants in Chinatown, but quick and efficient. Delicious fresh and tasty all day dim sum. Items from the regular menu also great. Place is always full which reflects the quality of the food and very reasonable prices.

Rol San has truly the best, most authentic Chinese cuisine in the city. Price is affordable. Service fast and efficient. I will return and often. P.S. I have spent time in China so I feel confident saying its the best in town.

Had a family brunch and royally enjoyed it. The service although at the beginning was quiet slow, due to the long line up, it picked up when we were seated. food was very tasty and well priced. Due to the bill being presented in non English or French, one has to be mindful of what they order. because when the... More

Had dinner here with a friend, and had an assortment of dim sum, with delicious curried cuttlefish being a standout dish. Service is lacking - staff more concerned with getting you in and out then actual service. Slightly put off by numerous filled garbage bags half way through the restaurant, but after seeing how much food they served, I guess... More
