Good Chinese dim sum

Very good Chinese dim sum compare to Hong Kong and China. Offer dim sum all day around, always full house, great eating place if you only focus on good Chinese dim sum. Put service/hardware to second. Take visa and cash only.

Not much of a selection. Lot's of fried dishes. Plastic table cloths. Definitely geared more towards moving people in and out quickly. Make sure you have cash or Visa. No other cards accepted. Surly service, demanded a tip. Never had that experience before and never coming back.

Sunday-Funday wouldn't be complete without a visit to Chinatown in Toronto. A friend of mine loves this place and treated me to some Grrrrrreat Dim Sum. Forget about the service with a smile, but expect some delicious food instead. They are highly efficient too. I gotta go back - there's still so much to try. Shiu mai. Nuff said.

Great place to go on a Sunday. Waited for about 15 minutes at 11:30 am. Shared a large table with three other parties and it worked out fine. The dumplings are great and sooo cheap. Didn't give it an excellent as it is very casual. We sat in the front room but the locals all seem to be going to... More

Plastic bags cover the tables but the service is quick and the food is good. All day Dim Sum is available. Lots of locals but stay away if you are looking for fancy.

Only place in the world that I know serves squid tentacles, or what my niece calls Chinese fries. Otherwise, the dimsum quality here can compete with Hongkong.

I have been coming to this place for many years. I also brought with me many a friend or family, that wanted to eat around this area (Spadina/Dundas). NEVER AGAIN!! Not only has the staff become progressively ruder, but in all honesty, the food has been going downhill lately. Maybe there's new owners, maybe new chefs, but whatever it is,... More

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

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.
