“Enjoyed it so much we ate there twice!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 8, 2013

This is a fantastic Chinese restaurant not far from the Chinatown area and close to the Yonge/Dundas Square area. It is fairly compact but has a huge menu with reasonable prices. The food was so delicious that of our five day trip, we decided to come back here a second time. The best dishes by far were the crispy ginger beef and crispy ginger chicken (only the beef is listed on the menu but they will make the chicken for you if you ask). The staff was also very friendly and very patient with my young children.

“Good Value”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 27, 2013

I spent almost every other lunch at Spadina Gardens when I worked downtown Toronto. I occasionally get to come back, and when I do, I enjoy the whole atmosphere, staff and food. Priced well and satisfying.

“Best Szechuan in Toronto”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 16, 2013

Great family run restaurant near corner of Bay and Dundas. May, Julianna, William and staff offer great service and fantastic, well priced meals. Be sure to try the spicy peanut chicken, crispy shredded beef and palace shrimp.

“Delicious Chinese food near Toronto Greyhound bus terminal”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 8, 2013

Good food at a good price. I recommend the So Gai (chicken dish) and Hot Spicy Peanut Beef. Attentive servers. Looking forward to going there again.

“Generous servings but lacking flavour”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed August 5, 2013

Had lunch at Spadina Garden. Ordered spicy ginger chicken and an eggplant dish. The food was passable but the taste was quite blah, and even difficult to distinguish between both dishes. Too heavy as well on oil and red colouring. Service was fast and friendly

Certainly not authentic Chinese food, filling but just that
