Excellent dumplings. We had the lamb shui mai, fried pork and bok choi, and boiled chicken and mushroom. We would do not recommend the chicken and mushroom. Hoping to explore Markham one day on a future trip.

Food was good a litter overprice for the serving size specially the rice no flavor and small portion. It's one of the places that you try once but never come back.

Restaurant was recommended to us by local Toronto people we met in a coffee shop earlier in the day. Kids wanted dumplings for lunch. Mother's Dumplings didn't disappoint as the kids gobbled them up!

Was quite disappointed with both food and service. Visited on a Wednesday around 8pm and was seated rather quickly next to the window. Tea was brought to the table, then we waited almost 15 min before we had to call and flag for a server,...More

Toronto's main Chinatown has the honor of being the
largest in North America. Gaping down across Dundas
Street West and Spadina Avenue, the area is a
wonderful medley of shops and restaurants, busy signs
and bright red gates, a destination for foodie fun.
Chinatown's streets are always bustling, packed with
people and outdoor stalls hawking fresh produce and
products. The restaurants and authentic marketplaces
