This restaurant was recommended by a local. We were a family of four, 10 & 8. Restaurant was busy with both new comers and ones who have been there before. Dishes were large. Tea severed when we sat.

Very crowded, line at the door, noisy, busy and just fabulous! The food is excellent and just watching a table being cleared and re-set for the next guest is entertainment in itself! Lots of people wait for a table, no bar to sit at, so just a line at the door. Does serve wine and beer. Wouldn't have missed this... More

After going through the extensive menu, I decided to try a pork spare ribs dish and a fried fish dish. The pork was excellent but just got too sweet by the end... More

excellent varied food: hot and sour soup, grandmother duck, tiger shrimp with fresh pineapple, stir-fried oysters, just to name a few of our many first choices. We are never disappointed, and visit almost every time we are in Toronto.

Always the same quality which is very good, the same servers who are efficient and friendly, reasonably priced. Always our first choice for Chinese food. Easy to get to using public transportation or if you are driving you will find a parking spot reasonably fast and not very expensive parking at that.

They take great care about preparing the food.... The for tastes great. When you get fried foods, it's not just batter but actual meat

Staying in Chinatown

Neighborhood Profile
Toronto's main Chinatown has the honor of being the largest in North America. Gaping down across Dundas Street West and Spadina Avenue, the area is a wonderful medley of shops and restaurants, busy signs and bright red gates, a destination for foodie fun. Chinatown's streets are always bustling, packed with people and outdoor stalls hawking fresh produce and products. The restaurants and authentic marketplaces that shoulder in against each other display shining roast ducks and menus studded with dumplings and noodle bowls. The air is pervaded with music. different languages, and the smell of fried food and mouth-watering desserts. Chinatown's restaurants represent a broad range of fare, from traditional Szechuan and Shanghai foods, to other Asian delicacies, including some of the top Japanese, Vietnamese, and Korean spots in the city. Whether you're in the mood for a sit-down tea house or a bubble tea to go, Chinatown is the spot to enjoy an exciting walk and the promise of leaving satisfied.
