This was our 2nd stop on a day we explored the Scarborough area. After filling ourselves with dimsum at Dragon Dynasty, we took a 2 hour break and came here around 3 pm. We were the only customers. Yay! The lady taking our order (presumably the owner), answered my wife's many questions. They talked at length. Since it was all... More

This is a long review because it summarizes 2 visits I had in the last 2 weeks. I wanted to find a Chinese seafood restaurant to try with 7 friends and decided on Maple Yip because of all the positive reviews on TripAdvisor and other review sites. We made 7:30 reservations for a Friday night and we were promptly seated... More

They have the best food in the area. However the service is kind of slow and not very good. They have both dining in and take out but the take out portions are smaller or it just seems smaller to me.

After two decades hidden away in an obscure strip plaza at the corner of Sheppard and Midland. This award winning ' hole-in-the-wall ' Cantonese wok-hay eatery still churn out some of the best tasting and best value Cantonese dishes in the GTA. Known for its perfectly executed Cantonese style steamed whole fish. One could kick it up an exotic notches... More

I eat a lot of Chinese food. I mean a lot. I have eaten it all across Canada; eaten it all across China, and if there is one place I can guarantee a good Chinese dinner this is it. There are so many good things about this restaurant it is hard to know where to start. The day before you... More

They tried to sneak in a $45 "sticky rice stuffed chicken" onto the bill that we did not order. Nonchalantly said it was a "mistake" and "fixed" it. Then added forced 12% service charge AFTER taxes. It is not written anywhere in the restaurant or menu. Was told I have to pay it because their staff are underpaid. Left a... More

I've been to the Fishman Wharf and Fishman Lobster Clubhouse mega seafood extravaganzas, so I wanted to get away from places like that and try something different for once. I found Maple Yip when I googled best lobster in Scarborough. Since I'd never heard of them before, I thought I'd give them a try...and I'm glad I did. They're tucked... More

Recently the price of the hot and sour soup with seafood was raised from $3.50 to $5.50. But it is worth the price. A recent menu change increased most prices. Not unexpected because of the drastic price increases restaurants have endured this year for meat, especially beef prices. Maple Yip is an old style Cantonese style restaurant where classic old...

This place is most of the time crowded, you got to get there early before 6pm if you want a seat fast, otherwise it's long line ups. If you're looking for ambience, there is none. Fair sized place, tables packed close by. People obviously do not come here for the ambience, but for the food. They do serve good seafood.... More

Staying in Scarborough

Neighbourhood Profile
Situated astride Lake Ontario, Scarborough is a district heavily influenced by immigration. With a number of low-rent shopping and dining options making it a highly affordable part of town, and boasting one of Toronto's largest shopping malls, the otherwise green suburban neighborhood is a good place to go for bargains and discounts. It also draws in photographers. The spires, archways, and cavernous rooms of the BAPS Shri Swaminarayan Mandir Palace are filled with breathtaking art, architecture, and detailed reliefs – it’s like entering a different world, The ruins of columns and installation art at the Guild Inn makes a free-for-all exploration site, while the big-name draw for young photographers is the menagerie at the Toronto Zoo. While many visitors shirk Scarborough as too suburban, its houses are some of Toronto's most mystical and haunting architectural beauties. And for adventure lovers, it has river-rafting and some unique hiking trails.
