  • A good mix of classic dim sum fare and modern, inventive twists. Way more expensive than most places, but you're paying for the experience. Try the wagyu beef dumpling.
  • Amazing dim sum on the 2nd floor of the Met Hotel! Make sure u order the hot & sour soup!!
  • Excellent dim sum!
  • Roast pork belly and deep fried shrimp and scallop warped in beacon are highly recommended. Most food are very good.
  • Upscale but pricey dim sum. Get the bacon wrapped scallop/shrimp & foie gras tart. Bigger dishes (like the turnip cakes or the braised spicy egg noodles) will fill your stomach and save your wallet!
  • Try the crab dumpling - How cute is this?! This is the new management's replacement for the lobster dumpling that I had on my last trip.
  • Come here for some old-school Cantonese style food. The staff may not have the best attitude, but the food is very authentic
  • Very good Cantoness style restaurant. Absolutely will come back again.
  • expensive but worthy, everything taste sooo good and also good service, worth to try..
  • "The deep-fried dumplings have a great crispy and chewy shell and the Berkshire pork stuffing is as good as it gets." - Chef Lorenzo Loseto
  • "I love this spot! Dont miss the crispy pastry with foie gras and minced pork. It's creamy, salty, and tangy, but you cant go wrong here." - Chef Lynn Crawford
  • Try the Shrimp Roll - One of four dim sum pieces on the prix fixe three course menu. Good sign, everyone here is speaking Mandarin. One of my faves in Toronto :-) (via @Foodspotting)
  • Dim sum and set menu were great.
  • Favourite dim sum place in Toronto!
  • Dim sum are good
  • Shrimp and scallops wrapped in bacon
  • One of the best and most elegant Chinese restaurants. Incredible dim sum. Best Peking Duck. Wonderful loose leaf teas. Love it here.
  • Absolutely the worst restaurant I've ever dined at. Horrible service and equally horrible food.
  • Dim sum with a twist - for something different try the crab dumpling, foie gras mince pork tart, chicken dumpling with truffle, and tofu in rice paper rolls and truffle.
