Really good dim sum and there is always a lineup! They are quick to get you a seat, Worthwhile even if you have to wait! You have to get a number from the hostess at the front. And she will call out your number when there is a table available! A must try! Been there several times over the years... More

A nice change from my usual haunt at Perfect Chinese Restaurant at Brimley and Sheppard. You'll get all the usual dim sum staples, but you could end up waiting a while for those carts to make it to your table.Still, dim sum is supposed to be a leisurely affair, so if you're starving and want something fast, either order off...

We have been going to Ginger&Onion for many years for family dinners but surprisingly this was our first dim sum. We were happy to discover it was cart style dim sum. Quality was good but (given it was a weekday) there was a bit of a wait for the har gow - which would be the only item that we... More

My family have been going here for years. It's always so busy on the weekends. The great thing about this dum sum is that they still have the rolley carts which is good for people like me who cannot speak cantonese so I just point to the dishes I want. The quality is good. The prices are more expensive on... More

We got the set dinner for 8 people. Place was busy on a Sunday evening but the service was prompt. Most of the dishes which included steamed fish, lobster, Peking duck, were tasty and portions were adequate. Deserts were choice of tofu-fah, black sesame and red bean puddings. Overall, good food and reasonably priced. Will go back and try their... More

A family of four went there for dinner, had 7 dishes and soup. The focus was on the peking duck, unfortunately, the duck was less than great - it was just ok. We choose to have lettuce wrap as part of the second serving of the duck, but it was turned out to be a bit too greasy. We also... More

My family are dim sum addicts and it seems like Ginger & Onion is a place we keep going back to. It's located at a very central location, therefore making it a great meeting spot for my family and friends. Har Gow and Siu Mei are on point! Even when we go after the "prime time" is over, the staff... More

The food is good and in a lot of dim sum places, the food is usually not the problem. The service is. I understand that during the morning, it's very busy but if I ask for a cup of water (since I don't drink tea), and I'm thirsty, that's a problem. At Ginger & Onion Cuisine, that wasn't a problem....

We have been going to this place each time we come to visit Toronto, over the last 8 years. The food is consistent and very good.The service is usually very good and friendly. Almost everything they cook at the restaurant is delicious. A good place to make a regular stop at, each time one visits Markham

I enjoyed everything on the menu that I have tried. The line ups are crazy for dim sum though. It is worth the 20 minute wait though.
