Food is quite good, but nothing outstanding. The soft shell crab is tasty. Average dining room and service. New Sky a few doors away is a better bet.

Classic no nonsense Chinese restaurant ambience: disposable plastic bag tablecloth and dark rudimentary bathroom. Your money is in the food. Kids loved the HK style soft shell crab. They were not so crazy about the black bean sauced razor clams.

I have been out of the city for awhile and really missed some good solid Chinese food. This is my go to place. The seafood especially the soft shell crab was awesome. Good service and reasonable prices.

We have visited Xam yu many times but it is the sweet and sour beef loin on a sizzling cast iron hot plate that stands out. Located on the east side of Spadina in the north end of China town does make for difficult parking...More

Toronto's main Chinatown has the honor of being the
largest in North America. Gaping down across Dundas
Street West and Spadina Avenue, the area is a
wonderful medley of shops and restaurants, busy signs
and bright red gates, a destination for foodie fun.
Chinatown's streets are always bustling, packed with
people and outdoor stalls hawking fresh produce and
products. The restaurants and authentic marketplaces
