Sitting in downtown. Near dundas square. This is a typical average Chinese resturant in North America. Internal decoration is a bit remote. Food is average. Service is nice and not slow. You may try once. But I wouldn't go back again. Anyway, there are some many Chinese resturant a way betters in Toronto.

This gem of a restaurant located in the busy tourist district is one of the hidden gems of the city. The food is delicious, the quality sizes are generous and the staff is very accommodating. I wish I could give this restaurant more than an excellent rating.

We went to this restaurant last week. The restaurant is small and can easily be considered as a place to ignore. But the food and the service are excellent. Prices are reasonable. You cannot go wrong. My wife and I payed approximately $45 for the two of us. It is a steal especially as the quality of the meal is... More

I get take out from here when I'm in town on business occasionally. The food is hot and good and reasonably priced. I order ahead and then walk over and it usually ready in the time it takes to get there. Several good items on the menu - try the house specialties, but you can rely on the old standards... More

This restaurant is just around the corner from the Marriott. I started with the hot and sour soup. Spice and heat level is perfect. I followed with Mongolian chicken and my wife had garlic chicken and mixed veggies. Both were very good. Service is good. Go after 7:30 PM and the locals are done.

A reliable choice. Great food that combines spicy Hakka and Szechuan Chinese with Indian influences (the family is originally from Kolkata). Best items for your first visit are the great hot & sour soup, peanut chicken, and Hunan beef. Super speedy lunch service (but try to get there a few minutes before 12 - it gets jam packed with local... More

The restaurant is almost always packed for lunch. It has a good selection of chinese food. I wouldn't say it's the best chinese I ever had but it's quick and worth it for the money. The place is clean and well kept. The staff is polite and quick and addresses requests fast.

Nice joint near Dundas square and Eaton centre. Their chilli squid, chilli beef and chilli prawns are delicious. Sautéed beens taste awesome. Other items on the menu include fried rice and different types of noodles. Spring rolls are greats well. Staff are really nice and courteous. The ambience is really nice. I visit this place often.

Staying in Downtown

Neighbourhood Profile
Downtown
At the heart of Toronto, Downtown is the destination for cheap eats and fast fashion. Cut through by hip and trendy Yonge Street, the vibe here is young, with a strong student influence from the Ryerson University Campus. As a result, the Downtown area is always in flux: undergoing the construction of new facilities, with fresh retail spaces and pop-up cafes. Home to Toronto's largest indoor shopping mall, a number of vintage cinemas, and a healthy nightlife centered on the area's Distillery District bar and clubs near the East End, it's both an easygoing daytime spot and a popular party place after sunset. It also features some of Toronto's best outdoor landmarks, including Yonge-Dundas Square and the Nathan Phillips Square: perfect for a concert, a skate, or a relaxing sit-down.
