The food was very good and the restaurant is very welcoming. The napkins are cloth while the atmosphere is casual, which is a delightful combination. And the dumplings are amazing.

I purposely went to this restaurant because of the high reviews it receives. This was the worst meal I had in Toronto. The dumplings were flavorless and the kimchi fried rice had no flavor of kimchi at all. The egg on top of the rice...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
