This restaurant's store front consists of workers making dumplings. Their specialty either steamed or pan fried is excellent leading to lines waiting to dine in their smallish eat-in area. I have ordered from their takeout menu several times. They are fast and the product consistently good. They also make great noodles.

Read about this place on TripAdvisor, so thought we would try it out. We were not disappointed. It was busy for lunch, but we waited for about 10 min for a table to open up. We ordered several dishes, dumplings, and soup and the bill was only $40! Beware that they only take cash! The tables are crammed into this... More

Family of four walked :10 from the Kensington Market (which is a great time!), and the food was excellent. As good of a neighborhood place I've eaten at, in a Chinatown, in any city. Dumplings were very filling. Noodles were excellent. Sweet and sour was perfect. 4 of us ate, with a ton of leftovers, for $50cd.

Super fresh dumplings! It's small unassuming but authentic and amazing... Best dumplings I have tasted, made fresh to order in the shop window.

Best dumplings I've had in Toronto. The wonton soup is fantastic as well, with fresh-made wontons exploding in your mouth with flavor. Service is a bit off, but it's Chinatown, Jake...so forget about it.

A friend and I stumbled on this place one day by accident. I saw the girls making the Dumplings in the window, and I thought it was worth a try. I usually get the shrimp and pork fried dumplings, and the spring rolls. They are amazing every time, and the price is very reasonable. Every time I am in the... More

Pan fried or steamed, the dumpings here are amazing! It's also fun to watch them being made in the front window of the shop

I only tried the pan fried pork/cabbage dumplings. They were excellent, crispy and chewy wrap and delicious filling. Waited ~10 mins at 4:30pm on a busy Sat for this walk-in take-out order. Definitely a worthwhile experience.

The air is pervaded with music. different languages, and the smell of fried food and mouth-watering desserts. Chinatown's restaurants represent a broad range of fare, from traditional Szechuan and Shanghai foods, to other Asian delicacies, including some of the top Japanese, Vietnamese, and Korean spots in the city. Whether you're in the mood for a sit-down tea house or a bubble tea to go, Chinatown is the spot to enjoy an exciting walk and the promise of leaving satisfied.
