Description: Our menu offers culinary creations by our Co-Founder, Philip Chiang, that are inspired by the major regions of China and its neighbouring countries. Most of our dishes are cooked in a Northern-style Chinese wok fired by a 900 degree flame which creates "wok hay" or "breath of wok." Our unique smoky, caramelized flavours and crispy textures can only be achieved using this age-old traditional technique. Each dish is prepared to order using only the freshest, high-quality ingredients. We use fresh chicken breast and flank steak that are hand-trimmed each day in our kitchens. All our dishes are MSG-free. Our vast selection means everyone will find something to love. We can accommodate a variety of allergies and tastes. A Gluten-Free menu is also available. Attaining harmony of taste, texture, colour and aroma by balancing the Chinese principles of FAN and T'SAI.

I had previously eaten at the Honolulu restaurant and loved it. This location was not as good. The food was overall OK, but certain dishes were cold in the center. Our experience was marred by the terrible halitosis of our server. The restaurant was so dark, it made reading the menu difficult. One excellent advantage is their free valet service. We'll try it again in a few months.

My second visit here with a friend and we had an amazing meal..the flavours much different than the usual "americanized versions" of dishes. this is what I would rate as the BEST asian cuisine in Toronto..and I believe will soon find its way to the top 10...only downside is, it is more expensive than most asian places but well worth it....pick up/take out too

very upscale decor..no chinese lanterns or shell pictures here lol...very chic modern decor..the first chinese restaurant I can truly say the washrooms were spotless. The food is more expensive than the usual places, but makes up for it on service, atmosphere, and food. the choices are more authentic and very good...great service , atmosphere and worth a try.

In the much needed newly renovated Don mills plaza south of lawrence and is packed at dinner time. valet parking available.Lunch menu too. GIVE IT A TRY YOU WON'T BE DISAPPOINTED. Nice enclosed heated outdoor patio.

Excellent food and service. Enjoyed the food and service in Chicago and Buffalo and now they are in Toronto.

We had an excellent young waiter who was very attentive and helpful. The chicken fried rice, chicken dish and beef dish we had was yummy. The fried banana dessert with ice cream and capucchinon was also an excellent finish to the meal which was more than enough for leftovers the next day.Also, the fried chicken dumplings were are tasty appetizer.
Overall the food is fresh, tasty and did not dissapoint. The atmosphere is very nice and I Love the location at the Shops of Don Mills.

Looking forward to going back. Glad there is a location in Toronto

Recently had dinner with a group of six last Friday. We had a reservation and got seated right away . Our server was good, quick and helpful and even when we wanted to order more he told us we had enough for 6. Starters had the Hot and sour soup- too dark, too much lily buds, not enough hot oil, and bitter did not enjoy it. Next the Chicken lettuce wrap(2 orders) fair in taste, nothing to write home about/ Northern style ribs and Changs ribs, 6 pieces per order, good and tender to the bone, nicely seasoned, 5 spice and barbecue. Salt and Pepper prawns, big pieces and excellent. Shrimp with lobster sauce(blah), I have eaten at their Miami location and loved it each and every time was there, again this one tasted a tad bitter. Crab fried rice, fair. Changs spicy chicken, very good. Chicken lo mein average. Mapotufu, again a tad bitter. Dessert we had the banana spring rolls accompanied by coconut ice cream, good and a humongous Great wall of chocolate, all 6 of us could not finish it. Tried the Baileys coffee and regular. Pricing is reasonable.Water glasses always filled up quickly. The place filled up quickly and became increasingly noisy we had a hard time hearing each other. A corner table would have been excellent. Even though they were fully booked and we could see the manager eyeing our table we were not rushed.
It is not the typical chinese food in terms of spices, seasonings and taste. Some dishes are hits and miss. Our server was excellent, too bad I did not get his name.
