We ordered take out from this restaurant. The decor of the restaurant is very nice. There is a separate room for group of 10. A good place for small partie.
Food were tasty and the price is decent for the amount of food we received. If you are used to have steamed rice with Chinese dishes, then you should ask for it if you are orderiNguyen. We realized that it was missing after came home.
Overall I would recommend this restaurant.

Thank Urojahaji

Excellent authentic Chinese food, much more attractive setting than most Chinese restaurants in the area, ample portions, friendly and attentive service. No beer and wine license yet. If you've been to China, you'll like this place.

The dynamite décor is the first thing you notice when coming into Asian Legends in St. Catharines. I was already excited to try this new restaurant. We ordered numerous dim sum items. When they arrived the portions were large and the presentation was absolutely stunning. The presentation of the cuisine was far beyond evne the striking décor. Each dish looked better than the next. I have eaten Dim Sum all over the world and have never seen such beautiful styled Chinese cuisine. Then I took the first bite. OH Boy! Don’t judge a book by the cover. Where was the taste? It was bland, dry and jewie. Item after item was the same and they seemed to get worse as it went along. Their dim sum noodle rapper (which covers a majority of dim sum items) was too thick, tough and doughy. No one at our table thought the food was very good. The service was mediocre to fair. Overall lunch at Asian Legends was a disappointment. I am not sure that I would even give them a second chance.

I'm not one to use superlatives such as "awesome"...... much too casually used by so many today! This restaurant, however, is an exception that truly warrants such high regard. The decor is very tasteful, with high-end finishes in, predominantly, deep neutral tones - comfortable seating; back-lit, carved wall panels; eye-catching, drop-pendant ceiling lights. The restaurant is divided into two dining areas, making the atmosphere more intimate. There are also several private rooms for larger groups/families. The food is outstanding and is reasonably priced for both the quality and quantity. Our selections were very fresh tasting, with sauces that were not overpowering and had just the right amount of spice. It was so hard to choose from the extensive menu. I most certainly will return. You should eat here too!

There are multiple Asian Legend restaurants in the GTA. This franchise opened in the Niagara area this summer. After some initial growing pains, the quality of the food here is approaching that of its more experienced counterparts in the GTA. This is authentic hi-quality Chinese food. Dumplings are delicious and made daily. The restaurant itself is a new build - absolutely beautiful contemporary decor. Perfect for taking guests and clients. I am Chinese and have lived in the Niagara area for the past 30 years and FINALLY have someplace decent to go for Chinese food. This is hi-end food at reasonable prices. Eat here!
