The facility, staff and food were all incredible. The best Dim Sum I have had in Canada. The shrimp and lobster were fresh and tasty. Price is high but well worth it.

I used to love this place. I have eaten lunches and dinners there that were always delicious. But this last time, it was just terrible. This may be a combination of the restaurant going downhill, our ordering badly, and being there late in the lunch...More

Always love this spot. Would like to experience with a bigger party to try more items. I usually get some basic dishes which they do really well. Truffle noodles here are crazy good. Must try!

On our last visit on February 5, the 5 of us were put in a corner with heat glasting down from the ceiling. The food was okay by all standards because it was pretty much like dim sum at other restaurants. However, the prices were...More

The food, presentation and service is bond to delight and impress your guests. The restaurant remains well kept and its not so busy you cannot talk (like many other Dim Sum restaurants). The atmosphere is tranquil and modern without losing the touch of Asia. I...More

At the heart of Toronto, Downtown is the destination
for cheap eats and fast fashion. Cut through by hip
and trendy Yonge Street, the vibe here is young, with
a strong student influence from the Ryerson University
Campus. As a result, the Downtown area is always in
flux: undergoing the construction of new facilities,
with fresh retail spaces and pop-up cafes. Home to
Toronto's largest indoor shopping mall, a number of
