Recommend a good Chinese Restaurant

Recommendations please for a good chinese restaurant in Toronto?

We're staying at Marriott Toronto Bloor Yorkville. Although looking to eat at the best recommended place an idea of distance would also help.

Thanks in advance

For cheap and cheerful, I like Swatow at 309 Spadina torontolife.com/guide/…

Lai Wah Heen is considered to be one of best Chinese restaurants in Toronto. It is located in the Metropolitan Hotel at Avenue Rd and Dundas. It is just south of Yorkville and would be a 10 min cab ride if that.

King Noodle or People's, both within walking distance of the earlier mentioned Swatow, all of which are around Dundas and Spadina, our Chinatown area.

These 2 are the closest, authentic Cantonese cuisine, 10 minutes walk from your hotel: 1. Crown Princess(Bay+St.Joseph) 2. Dynasty (Yorkville)

Lai Wah Heen is indeed reputed to be the best - with prices to match.

I have to agree with flyinmom

As a Chinese Canadian I think the food at King's Noodle is excellent for Chinatown standards. Very authentic.

+1 Lai Wah Heen

+1 Dynasty

Both restaurants are ones I have tried relatively recently with my Chinese friends, based on their recommendations.

I have also eaten at countless restaurants in the Dundas and Spadina area. Some on recommendations, others on a whim. Most have been pretty good. But the face of downtown Chinatown has changed since i was a kid and some of my favourites have since moved to Chinatown north. Good luck! :-)

Also Lee Garden http://www.leegardenrestaurant.ca/ - does not look that big but the food is excellent (and is also my Chinese friends' favourite).

Booking is strongly recommended since it is very popular - even if you book you may have to wait a little while at peak times.
