I researched on Trip Advisor for good places to eat in China Town and based on reviews, this was one of my shortlisted places and the restaurant that I went to. After dining at this place, I am in agreement with the positive ratings by reviewers. This is a really good place and the food was really good. For a... More

I was so hopeful when I saw the reviews of this restaurant. All past Dim Sum experiences I had were great experiences, which was about five times at different places. This place does not come by with carts to show you the options. OK... Their menu was in Chinese and English... I thought I can do this. It was my... More

Very small place but it was pretty busy when we walked by so we thought that was a good sign! We didn't partake in the dim sum but the main dishes we ordered were amazing. It's a shame their place isn't bigger. The service wasn't that great but the food made up for it. We were really pleased when 2... More

In a nutshell would never have thought to enter this restaurant when walking by in the street...but we were recommended by a local to try this restaurant. Went one lunchtime and although it's the usual non descript decor and impersonal service you often get in Chinese restaurants, I have to say this was some of the best dim sun we've... More

I was introduced to this restaurant by your friend many years ago and have been going ever since and have brought many people here. The food and service is fast and very delicious! I find the quality to be just fine and very consistent. Is not fancy and there is a rushed atmosphere but no problem! If you want some... More

We ate here once for a dim sum lunch and once for a dinner. The dim sum was really good. Very authentic. The xiu mai was not as flavorful as I would have liked, but the changfun was really good (especially the one with youtiao inside - very plump and delicious). Dinner, where we ordered a few of the other... More

We had a variety of dim sum and an order of shrimp in lobster sauce. Most of the dim sum was very good and the shrimp in lobster sauce was among the best versions of this dish we have tasted. The service was a little unpolished and like many Chinese restaurants, there's a lot of clatter involved in clearing tables.... More

This place is in the heart of Toronto's Chinatown and is a must place to stop for Dim Sum for a real authentic Chinatown experience. Sometimes there is a 15 to 20 minute wait but I assure you that the food is well worth the wait. Every item they serve is fresh, fast and very good. This place takes the... More

Portions were good size and they advertise they offer dim-sum all day long. Instead of the carts being pushed around, you order what you want which they later deliver to your table.
