In a city where there are dozens of Chinese restaurants within a 15 minute drive, and a uniformly high standard of cooking thanks to the intense competition, this branch of Asian Legend still stands out (I've tried other branches of Asian Legend and this is my favorite one). It's northern style, but not too oily, and you can still get... More

We have been going to this Chinese restaurant for a number of years. Never been disappointed with the food here. They have many locations in the Toronto area but we always go to this location as the service is excellent. The manager Frankie looks after his guests well.

We ate here several times, probably ten years ago. We stopped since it’s a bit of drive and there are closer restaurants offering dim sum. But, nostalgia descended on us and we decided to go back. It has a faintly Spadina feel sitting in a mall at Finch and Leslie with copious Chinese signs and a Sunny market. Parking was... More

This used to be a good restaurant; not anymore! Food still tasted ok, but served mostly luke warm and the portions have been downsized quite a bit. Food presentation was lousy. The restaurant served everything in plate just slightly bigger than a bread plate - making each dish looked cheap and not appealing. Worst part is the service. The waiters... More

It's often packed. Upscale decor. A very large menu of authentic Chinese food including a very nice dim sum selection. The soup filled dumplings are excellent and worth the visit alone . Non Asians can easily navigate the menu, you write your selections down and give them to the waiter . You can eat well here for $20 a person!... More

An old favourite restaurant that is gradually suffering from its service and food quality levels. Once a great place to go, with dishes coming out hot and tasty, Asian Legend has some serious work to do in order to bring back the old charm and delicious food. We would visit Asian Legend weekly over the past 10 years, however, now... More

We enjoyed its famous steamed dumplings and hand made thick noodles with seasoned braised beef in soup. It is a popular restaurant with long line ups. Highly recommend.
