Winsor Dim Sum Cafe is small, but we were seated pretty promptly for a Sunday morning. If you come with two people, they will seat you at a large round table with others, which was fine. You get to see what others are ordering. We ordered from the menu which had helpful pictures, and had a good variety of items. We ordered 5 items split between two people, which was plenty of food.

The food is satisfactory overall - above average for a "China Town standard" but just average(or even below) comparing with other Dim Sum places I had in Toronto, Hong Kong and Macau. 豉油凤爪可以推荐,在吃过的早茶里面算是上品;牛肚,牛杂有点差强人意;酿茄子油非常大,慎点;其他菜色不算惊艳,属于可接受范围,

Went for brunch on Christmas Day.

The Good:
Really great Dim Sum served steaming hot. This compared favorably to the best Dim Sum I've had in China, Singapore and Hong Kong. Go ahead and order many different dishes. You can pack up what you don't eat and take home. You'll be surprised just how modest the bill will be...under $15-20 per person even if you order tons of food.

Now the (well, not bad) but beware:
Go early, no reservations and its get crazy busy.
You'll sit a table with strangers, family-style.
Service is rough but efficient. Most important thing is they bring the food out steaming hot.

This is definitely not fine dining. But if you want truly good and very affordable Dim Sum, this is the place!

If you go with a group of 5 or 6 friends, you'll get you own table.

Ordered not from a cart but from a photo-illustrated menu and tally is not based on plates but from the selections you mark on a sushi-style order sheet... most important, the selections are many (and augmented on weekends) and the 10 selections (two different visits) I tried were all excellent.

This past weekend we went to Chinatown to have brunch at Winsor Dim Sum Café. If you want to eat good quality dim sum and you are not looking for a fancy place then I will definitely recommend Winsor. It's so worth it. They serve 3/4 dim sum(s) in an order, which is very reasonable. I will suggest that you go early in the day, then you will be able to get a parking spot as well as don't have to wait in line for very long.
