We regularly have dim sum here, this place usually has carts which is good to take a look before ordering and it also has many classic dishes that other restaurants often attempt to "improve" poorly. Dim sum ends at around 2pm.

This Chinese Restaurant is famous with their "Peking Duck" of which I agree. The food was very good, service was pretty fast, prices are very competitive, staff were okay, but very noisy & busy all the time. I always make reservation & still 15-20 min wait & it doesn't matter whether for lunch or dinner.

We enjoy a delicious Dim Sum lunch once a month or so at Ginger & Onion Cuisine with a group of 6 to 10 friends from the Toronto condominium where we used to live. The friendly staff circulate with carts of tasty dishes and even if you do not speak Chinese all you have to do is point at what... More

We are regulars here. You get great value, as most of their dishes are considered to be small. If you go too late, you get less of a variety, so during the week, we get there by 11:30 at the latest. If you want something that you don't see on the cart, you can ask them if they'll be bringing... More

Based on some of he reviews, I expected more from the restaurant. Very crowded on a Saturday lunchtime, but the queue moved well, and the hustle-and-bustle added to the experience. Food came on regular carts, but it seemed to be the same six or seven items over and over. If you're feeling experimental (full disclosure: I'm Caucasian) just ask or... More

The 45 minute wait to be seated was very frustrating but totally worth the wait, the food was absolutely awesome, we had the fried octopus, shrimp wonton, vegetable wonton, mango pudding, 2 different kinds of dumpling and everything was very good. Price was good. Atmosphere was very busy and crowded.

A very busy place even on weekdays, don't borther going there on the weekend; it's like a zoo on the weekend. I would like a place where you can enjoy your meal w/out been stress out. Life is already hectic and rushy. The restaurant provides a fair good amount of food when it comes to what you're paying, but don't... More

Been here a couple of times and the food here is very good and the staff is really helpful as well. They do have Dim Sum and it is really tasty. Located outside of the mall gives ample parking space. However, during the weekend it is packed with people so if you are considering Dim Sum here, be ready to... More

We arrived on a rainy Tuesday at 11:00am, and found the restaurant already over half full. It was completely full by the time we left at 12:15. Ovbviously popular with the large Chinese community in Markham. There was a good variety of dishes available from the serving carts. The stars of the show were among the less complex dishes --...

I have only ever been here for dim sum. incredibly long wait, and there are dim sum places that are faster at getting stuff out there than this, but the food here is great. all the servers wear nametags... I don't trust Fanny. my favourite from this place is a tapioca yellow pudding desert, which has likely been baked for... More
