Went on a Sunday for dim sum, must have been 30 people queueing - the concierge had a system of sorts but there was a mild sense of chaos! The food was solid if not great. Service was efficient and attentive despite how busy they were.

During our recent Toronto visit, we were treated a place which advertises itself as an all day dim sum restaurant. During our Sunday luncy, this place was pretty packed at 1pm. Overall, everything which we ordered were good. Service was efficient. The only thing I have to complain about would be the restroom needed to be attended better by the... More

After eating steak for a couple of days I really wanted some different and lighter taste. I was told Toronto has the second largest Chinatown in the world and I am a big Asian food fan. I took an Uber into Chinatown and spend more than half an hour finding a suitable place to eat. Many restaurants here are tourist... More

Read all of the reviews and was looking forward to a fantastic dim sum lunch. Disappointed by the average food and terrible service. There is much better dim sum to be found in the city and far cleaner restaurants in which to eat it.

Suggested by server at The Renaissance. This place did not disappoint. This dish was one of the best I have had. That includes several trips to China. The dim sum was excellent too

Following our full day at AGO (Art Gallery of Ontario) we walked to Toronto's famous China Town which was bubbling over with restaurants and markets galore! Our stroll down Spadina led us to Rol San which advertises "dim sum served all day" ... The place was busy with customers and our four varieties of dim sum + hot tea were... More

A bunch of us went there for dim sum. Nothing special and expensive. Quality of food items were average at best. I noticed they were trying to promote non popular stuff to non-Asians. There's better places for dim sum in Chinatown.

Roll San is an old school type of dim sum place with no frills just decent dim sum. They are usually busy during lunch time but once you are seated service is fast.

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.
