“Take a side trip to Asia without stepping out of the Greater Toronto Area at Pacific Mall”
Reviewed May 10, 2013

Pacific Mall first opened its doors in 1997 to become the largest indoor Chinese- Asian Mall in North America.
Your one-stop-shop for all Asian made product or produce: Pick up some dragon fruit, partake in some dim sum or browse the booths packed full of Asian-made crafts or Chinese spices. This is also the place to shop for electrical items. Tip: Cash is King here.
Designated an official Canadian Tourist Attraction, the mall is exempt from the Retail Business Holiday Act so it is open year-round including statutory holidays.

“Very different & fun!”
Reviewed April 8, 2013

Pacific Mall has two main buildings. The two level mall consists of rows of little glass shops. Most sell Asian products. Unique clothing, lots of high-end jewellery, many electronics, especially when it comes to choices of cell phones.
There are many little shops that sell bubble tea - offering many flavors. There are a number of restaurants, as well as two food courts (one in each building). A couple of the restaurants offer great dim sum. The mall offers many choices if you are on the hunt for a unique gift for any age.
There is a large parking lot, but beware it gets full quickly and it becomes very difficult to find a spot especially Chinese New Year.

“First review, I choose somewhere I go almost every other day.”
Reviewed March 5, 2013

Of course I'm crazy - this is however a place I pay a visit almost every other day to get lemon tea because I can't afford other expensive addictions.

The mall has changed a lot ever since it was built. Due to competition, everything has gotten cheaper. Things from this mall used to be twice as expensive, literally. Anyway, if you are a bubble tea person, there are only three shops I could recommend: TenRen, 168, and Tasty House (which is where I get my lemon tea). I've tried every other store and trust me, you won't want to regret by choosing the other 'cheaper' ones.

There are about 3 to 4 Asian snack shops, but DingDong (located at the other entrance with no elevators) is where all the American Asians go to whenever they have a holiday and store snacks. And for little egg pastery thing, get the one with a proper booth on the 3rd floor (heritage town).

“giant Chinese mall”
Reviewed March 2, 2013

Okat for Chinese standards this is a pretty happening mall but to be fair most of the shops repeat.

The stores you'll see pretty much everywhere is as follows

Glasses
bubble tea
womens clothing
Asian Dvd's
Electronics
cell phones
jewelry

Of course there is also a lot of great things to eat especially if you're not Asian.

Avoid the weekends if you can, this mall gets crazy.
