One of the few dim sum restaurants that still have carts!

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... read 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 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!

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
