The food is good and in a lot of dim sum places, the food is usually not the problem. The service is. I understand that during the morning, it's very busy but if I ask for a cup of water (since I don't drink tea), and I'm thirsty, that's a problem. At Ginger & Onion Cuisine, that wasn't a problem....

We have been going to this place each time we come to visit Toronto, over the last 8 years. The food is consistent and very good.The service is usually very good and friendly. Almost everything they cook at the restaurant is delicious. A good place to make a regular stop at, each time one visits Markham

I enjoyed everything on the menu that I have tried. The line ups are crazy for dim sum though. It is worth the 20 minute wait though.

The nearby Pacific Mall opens slowly during the morning hours, so before our shopping excursion, we enjoyed Dim Sum at the Ginger & Onion restaurant. It was already very busy at 11:30am when we arrived. The food was very good and reasonably priced

Great Dim Sum here but too much MSG. It always makes me thirsty and it is really packed with people on the weekends. I don't recommend it.

My friend Daniel recommended me to try this Cantonese style restaurant because they still offer the food by cart, which now is rare to find in Toronto. One of the few places that still does the carts pushed by yelling ladies between crowded tables -- the way the dim sum experience should be. I was not disappointed. The food and... More

I would definitely recommend this restaurant for Dim Sum. They started serving quite early, and the place would be packed. As a native Chinese, these Dim Sum is as good as you could get it in Hong Kong or any big city with a large Chinese population. They still have the push cart, and the selections are great. Besides the... More

Recently we visited this little spot while on a trip to Toronto. This was my first time having authentic dim sum. What a great experience. It does not lend itself to vegetarians unless you eat fish. Luckily we had friend/translators to help with the ordering otherwise it would have been a real challenge. The meal was wonderful, my only caution... More

My husband and I thought it would be fun to try dim sum this week. We went on a Sunday - found it very busy at 10:30 in the morning. It smelled great, and the dishes my husband tried were good - but as English speakers it was tricky. No one was able to help me find the vegetarian dishes,... More
