Came here to sample the menu. At first we were underwhelmed by the flavours compared with normal yum cha. It lacked that flavour "hit". However as more dishes came out, this was a similar case. They all looked like normal yum cha dishes, but did...More

WARNING: DO NOT GO! SAVE YOUR MONEY! GO TO CHINATOWN! I went on a Sunday to have dim sum with my wife. This place looked very cozy and the menu looked like it had a lot of options. However, when we sat down and ordered....More

Are you a fan of the cheap, greasy, deep-fried Saturday morning dim sum you get in Chinatown? Then don't come here. Stick with the hung-over guys at Rol San. This is more refined dim sum - with prices to match. It's not quite the quality...More

The food ranged from okay to quite good, but being served soup with someone else's lipstick clearly visible on the accompanying spoon put an end to any enjoyment of the meal. The service was very off-hand and the apology for the dirty spoon lacked any...More

Staff were very pleasant but food mostly bland & disappointing. Har Gow small & tasteless. The rice noodle shrimp rolls also disappointing. The steamed chicken & rice totally bland. Vegetable spring roll done differently but good. Sesame balls were nice.

My girlfriend and I go for Dim Sum often and loved finding this restaurant right on Yonge. This place is modern with great decor and dishes. The food is hot, fresh and flavourful. We go every time we stay down at the T.

At the heart of Toronto, Downtown is the destination
for cheap eats and fast fashion. Cut through by hip
and trendy Yonge Street, the vibe here is young, with
a strong student influence from the Ryerson University
Campus. As a result, the Downtown area is always in
flux: undergoing the construction of new facilities,
with fresh retail spaces and pop-up cafes. Home to
