This by the far the best dim sum restaurant in Toronto, but don’t go outside of Happy Hour, it’s just not worth it.

Happy Hour:
Mon – Fri 9 a.m.- 11:30 a.m. & 1:30 p.m.- 4 p.m.
Sat, Sun, Holidays 9 a.m.- 11 a.m.

The dim sum here is on par with ones that I have had in Hong Kong, but the selection is very basic / traditional. They don’t offer the creative dim sum like they do in Hong Kong and New York City (i.e. shark fin dumpling), but at the price point of $1.88CAD a pop for authentic dim sum this the place to go for weekend brunches.  Just beware outside of happy hour be prepared to spend anywhere from $4-$7CAD a dish.

A big thumbs down for this place!

This place is completely awful. The dim sum is pushed around in carts that don’t keep them hot and you know how bad dim sum is when it’s served cold. In addition, the dim sum is not prepared and cooked properly. I got a beef dish that was not suppose to have a hint of shrimp taste but did, which lead me to believe they are steam multiple dishes on the same plate. Not good!
