It’s not my first visit to this resto and again, they fail in customer service and friendliness. On both occasions, I went to this restaurant during off peak hours for dim sum. I am always left waiting for an unreasonable amount of time to get...tea, or to have my dim sum order form picked up. The food is okay and usually arrives in a timely manner but if I need a server for any reason, hot sauce, takeout containers, more hot water, they never seem to look my way or think about checking on my table. I have to get up and flag somebody down. After finally getting my bill, I paid at the counter and left a tip that reflected the very poor service (I can only guess might be related to the fact that I’m not Chinese). She had the audacity to actually question me about the amount of my tip (and lack thereof). The last time I checked, a gratuity or it’s percentage is not mandatory but is based on the service provided. Maybe you should be questioning your servers about their performance!! Add to this the fact that the restaurant decor is filthy. The carpets have not seen a cleaner nor have they been changed in far too many years. They’re literally black (and I believe once upon a time they might have been red). So, imagine the kitchen where the food is being prepped!More

Place to go whenever you crave for Chinese food, especially Dimsum. Be wary though - servers aren't friendly. I could understand that they were under-staffed, but that doesn't give them the right to be rude to customers. We understood that, and we politely requested for...some stuff like soy sauce, extra cutlery and all - but they were so rude: banging on plates, telling us to make our requests - ONE TIME and WAIT as they were understaff, shoving my nephew's mobile phone and worse - DEMANDING FOR A TIP, when they don't deserve one. Will never come back.More

Now, like most other Chinese restaurants, the environment isn’t the greatest, but the dim sum is cheaper than any other place in Toronto, and is still great quality for the price. $30-35 is enough for two, and $50-55 for three. And I’m talking stuffed with...extra to take home. I can’t speak for the other meals outside of lunchtime dim sum hours, since I only ever go there for that. And I have been going there regularly for almost a decade now.More

We ordered a whole Peking duck and all we got were a few pieces of skin and a bowl of lettuce. 47 dollars for what? When we called the server over, the server tried to convince us that the head of lettuce was the rest...of the duck. We even saw a few rats running around. Will never see the doors of Perfect again.More

As mentioned in other reviews, never order takeout with them. While ordering it said food would be ready at 5:30pm. Reached at 5:40 - food not ready. Waited until 6:10 and still not ready. Waiters avoid eye contact with you and when you ask, rudely...tell you order is not ready. Even the owner needs lessons in customer service and politeness!!More

Beware of this place - Pre-ordered a Chinese New Year Even Dinner set take-out, did not fulfil - Having more than usual incoming order is NOT an excuse, you could have stopped taking orders, if you have been in business for so many years, you...have experience of how many orders you can fulfill - Very chaotic within the restaurant, no social distancing whatsoever - So many people ordered for take out crowded in the place, with no food, looking to get help - Staff yelling at customers for try to get help - Some food are just out in the open on tables for hours without anyone taking care of them, food safety is a concern - If you cannot fulfil orders, DO NOT take in more orders, while everyone is waiting, they are STILL taking online orders - We waited for an hour and had to leave at end, given the importance of the day and meal to a Chinese family, this is a really bad experience - They have our number but no one ever called to apologize after the fact,More

For take-out, it is convenient and easy. The taste is good -- not spectacular, but is always consistently tasty and worth it for the price. So I would only recommend this place for you if it's close by and you're craving some familiar Chinese food....There's nothing really special or fancy about this place, but it's a pretty good option for all the standard Chinese dishes with decent portion sizes.More

I don't know if its new owners or what? We used to go there all the time about 8 years ago and then moved away. We were so glad to back to the place we loved, but this is not the same place. First, the...service is awful, especially if you are not Chinese. The food takes forever to arrive, the soup and appetizers arrive in the middle or at the end of the meal. When I complained to the manager, he told me that Chinese people order the soup and the appetizers first, the later order the rest of the meal, so that everything arrives in the order that I want. I explained that maybe his staff should notice that I am clearly not Asian and explain this to me before I placed my order, furthermore, I have eaten at hundreds of Chinese Restaurants over the years and this was the first time I ever heard this. His response was "This is the way we do it here." Secondly, the prices are almost double anyplace else I have been. An order of Chicken Fried Rice was $12.50 and there was hardly any chicken . The portions were so small there was no value at all. To make things worse, they try and cheat you on the price. We ordered 5 items and 3 of them were priced higher on the bill than in the menu. I didn't even notice, but luckily my wife has a good eye. She told me to double check the menu and she was right. Finally, the food tasted awful. I don't mind paying high prices if I'm getting quality food and service. The chicken tasted rubbery; the rice tasted stale and the shrimp rolls hardly had any shrimp in them. Do yourself a favour and save your money, there are many other Chinese restaurants in the area, you should stay away from this place and go to one of them.More

Hm. I've never actually had this dish; so I would not be helpful. You might try your luck if you go into the kitchen. Best time to visit the kitchen is usually after lunch rush.
