I really don't understand why people like this restaurant. It is expensive and really not that good. There are just so many better places to go for a dim sum fix in Toronto.

This is a lovely space in China Town downtown. It is well appointed and has good service. The prices seem geared to expense account lunches and there are not really options that are inexpensive. There are a couple of dim sum special options and, although...More

Birthday celebration for our adult son. It was a dim sum extravaganza. Outstanding food and service. It’s a high end restaurant but you get what you pay for.

I was sent here by the concierge from another hotel. The restaurant is located in the Double Tree Hotel. The ambience is better than most asian restaurants. The service is efficient and friendlier than most asian restaurants. Dumplings were really good. I don't even like...More

It was a great experience overall. The food and service were good. The worst part about it was being told that I could not charge my meal to the room at the end of a great meal.

Average Dim Sum. Years ago this place was outstanding. No longer. Very poor, slow to non existent service. I’ve taken Lai Wah Heen off my list.

We dined in this establishment 3 times, both lunch and dinners, during our visit to Toronto in mid-October. The suckling pig and Peking roasted duck were marvellous, matching those in fine Hong Kong and Shanghai restaurants. The Cantonese dim sums and steamed soups were excellent...More

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
Toronto's largest indoor shopping mall, a number of
