Rosewood Chinese Cuisine serves up some of Toronto’s tastiest dim sum all day long, with special pricing on weekdays and all you can eat at night. This two-level Chinatown hot spot is full of traditional dim sum delicacies with a couple of newer twists. Some highlights on the menu, which even has pictures for beginners, include the har gow, crispy shrimp rolls, and lightly browned egg tarts. Another delicious spot for Chinese food at almost any hour of the day is Rol San.

Forest Hill

If you’ve found yourself in Forest Hill, you’ve got to head to House of Chan. This spot is steeped in tradition – they’ve been in business for over 50 years. Don’t expect Chinatown prices, because this place will empty your wallet. But it will be worth it.

Garden District

Yueh Tung restaurant is one of the few Chinese restaurants left in Toronto’s original Chinatown. This go-to spot first opened across the street in 1976. Not, it’s located on the second store of a building. Yueh Tung offers three styles of Hakka: traditional Hakka, Cantonese Hakka, and Indian-style Hakka.

If you want to enjoy some dim sum while taking in a beautiful view, chow down on some dumplings at Pearl Harbourfront, where you can compliment your meal with stunning panoramic views of the city’s waterfront. This Queen’s Quay Terminal restaurant has been serving up Chinese cuisine for almost thirty years now, so they really know what they’re doing.


While not located in the downtown core, Fishman Lobster Clubhouse is worth the journey to Scarborough. It boasts some Instagram-worthy seafood, and the restaurant itself is flanked by a half dozen tanks of king crab, lobster, and fish.

Kwan Dim Sum adds a modern, more elegant take on Cantonese brunch. There’s no rolling cart service at this tasty spot because the owner believes that crafting each and every dumpling or bun to order offers an unmatched freshness for your tastebuds. Kwan Dim Sum is a delicate blend of a lot of east Cantonese influences with a little bit of the west as well.
