This is a great Chinese restaurant and I have become a frequent visitor to this place. Their dim sums are to die for as are most of their rice dishes. They have a huge menu to chose from, which actually makes it tough at times...More

I grew up in Toronto but live in mexico. When we come home, we ALWAYS go to Asian Legend here in North York at least once or twice. There is nothing that we haven't eaten that we don't love. My favorite is the dumpling in...More

This particular Asian Legend is awful. I have been to others that are much better. (Perhaps they too have gotten worse.)

Clearly, a good Chinese food restaurant, given that I saw most of the restaurant (and it was crowded on a Sunday evening) occupied by local Chinese families. Good choices of dishes and food was excellent.

Dumplings (#007) and Singapore Vermicelli (#139) are regular take-out faves. My friends always ask for me to order it when they come over. The home-made hot sauce is fantastic! Take out can be slow so order early. Service in the restaurant is hit more than...More

Definitely worth a visit, the food is dynamite and there is a great variety of excellent dishes. Make sure to try the Peanut dumpling appetizer and the Mango chicken main. Strongly recommended.

This restaurant is located just 2 blocks north of the N. York Novotel Hotel. Great choice of Chinese food, including for a vegetarian. Pleasant atmosphere; good food, fair price.

Had lunch here after visiting the Art Gallery of Ontario. Started with pork dumplings which were weirdly soggy. I had shrimp with rice and egg (essentially shrimp fried rice) and it was fine. There were plenty of shrimp, but not nothing special. My husband had...More

North York
North York is one of Toronto's most culturally diverse
neighborhoods. Home to a number of cultural events
throughout the year that celebrate the city's varied
ethnic communities, it's always worthwhile to see
what's going on in the area. Its cross-section of
inhabitants include students and long-time residents,
giving North York an eclectic feeling of being both
local and international. Extremely family-friendly,
