Watch your dumplings being made in the kitchen as you wait for your order and then enjoy the delicious result, an authentic dumpling that isn't like the greasy fare you get elsewhere. Highly recommended.

Toronto's main Chinatown has the honor of being the
largest in North America. Gaping down across Dundas
