Good Dim Sum near Pacific Mall

The nearby Pacific Mall opens slowly during the morning hours, so before our shopping excursion, we enjoyed Dim Sum at the Ginger & Onion restaurant. It was already very busy at 11:30am when we arrived. The food was very good and reasonably priced

Great Dim Sum here but too much MSG. It always makes me thirsty and it is really packed with people on the weekends. I don't recommend it.

My friend Daniel recommended me to try this Cantonese style restaurant because they still offer the food by cart, which now is rare to find in Toronto. One of the few places that still does the carts pushed by yelling ladies between crowded tables -- the way the dim sum experience should be. I was not disappointed. The food and... More

I would definitely recommend this restaurant for Dim Sum. They started serving quite early, and the place would be packed. As a native Chinese, these Dim Sum is as good as you could get it in Hong Kong or any big city with a large Chinese population. They still have the push cart, and the selections are great. Besides the... More

Recently we visited this little spot while on a trip to Toronto. This was my first time having authentic dim sum. What a great experience. It does not lend itself to vegetarians unless you eat fish. Luckily we had friend/translators to help with the ordering otherwise it would have been a real challenge. The meal was wonderful, my only caution... More

My husband and I thought it would be fun to try dim sum this week. We went on a Sunday - found it very busy at 10:30 in the morning. It smelled great, and the dishes my husband tried were good - but as English speakers it was tricky. No one was able to help me find the vegetarian dishes,... More

They charge you for the tea so if there is 5 of you, they will charge 5 bucks for the same pot that they normally put if there is only 2 of you. They also charge for table cloth and customers are not aware of this And the cleanliness of this place is questionable. One of the server, went to... More

This restaurant is a great price performer. There are better dim sum restaurants in Markham but the food is generally quite good. My friend and I had lunch there recently and we ordered a lot of food, more than we could finish. The total bill came to $16 for 2. It's one of the few places in Markham that still... More

This place is so dirty! They do not know hygiene at this restaurant....they should not keep the washroom door open and walk by it while handing FOOD!!!!! The kitchen is right near the dirty filthy restaurants! We each ordered a shrimp dumpling and just paid and walked out. We went to go get noodles @ p-mall that were amazing!
