The Best Chinese Food Delivery in Toronto

Posted by Darren "DKLo" Susilo / July 20, 2015

chinese food delivery torontoThe best Chinese food delivery in Toronto is all about that perfect combination of taste, speed, and reliability. The stereotypical American-style Chinese food containers are still nowhere to be seen, but thankfully the deliciousness (and occasional MSG) is never lacking. So when you're craving Kung Pao but too lazy to get off the couch, consult this list.

These are the best Chinese restaurants for delivery in Toronto.

Congee Queen

Congee Queen

Expanding at twice the speed of light, this Scarborough/Markham late-night favourite is opening up new locations all the time (though sadly none in downtown Toronto as of yet). With it comes the delightful prospect of delicious lobster congee or Cantonese chow mein (don't forget the turnip cake! ) showing up at your doorstep with a minimum order of just $25. More »

Taste of China

Taste of China

I guess China tastes delicious, because this long-standing restaurant's spicy crispy beef is exactly that. With a minimum order of $30, you can get free delivery of this and many other awesome eats like deep fried tofu with garlic or the fried squid. Definitely a must-try. More »

China Gourmet (York Mills)

China Gourmet (York Mills)

Despite its hopelessly generic name, China Gourmet is a pleasant throwback to the old-school days of having deep fried chicken wings and fried chicken balls pass as proper Chinese food. Not that there's anything wrong with that, of course (both dishes are actually pretty satisfying here). The delivery charge varies depending on location, but it's generally around $10 if you're right outside of their delivery zone. More »

Szechuan Gourmet

Szechuan Gourmet

Runner up for most unoriginal (and slightly inaccurate) name on this list, this place delivers (pun definitely intended) if you're looking for bold, spicy flavours reminiscent of Indian-style Chinese food. Chili chicken (with gravy) and shredded beef rule the roost here. A minimum order of $30 qualifies you for a free delivery if you're within close proximity - otherwise you need to spend $45. More »

Congee Phoenix

Congee Phoenix

Located close to Fairview Mall (and therefore Don Mills subway station), this suburban outpost serves up excellent congee and other classic Cantonese specialties. The turnip cake is a bit mediocre but the fried pork chop excels. Minimum order is $25 for free delivery. More »

Simon's Wok

Simon's Wok

Simon must be a fantastic chef, because everything that comes off his wok is delicious.This East Chinatown vegetarian spot serves up awesome non-meat versions of your favourite Chinese dishes, such as the flavourful fried noodle with vegetables or the special stuffed bean curd. Free delivery for orders over $30 before tax. More »

Hong Shing

Hong Shing

Is there anyone who doesn't love Hong Shing? On top of their delicious food, they do delivery up until 1 am, all for a $4 charge. Make sure to have the good ol' General Tao chicken on your list -- it won't disappoint. More »

Congee Star

Congee Star

A great place to grab some Chinese food after a visit to the Ontario Science Centre, Congee Star also does free delivery with a minimum order of $25 before tax. Make sure you try their flavourful (though a bit greasy) fried chicken wings with spicy salt. The preserved egg and pork congee is also sure to please. More »

Asian Legend

Asian Legend

Asian Legend is arguably the most popular Chinese restaurant chain in the city, and with locations in almost every corner of the city, your delicious soup-filled dumplings or spicy Kung Pao chicken aren't too far away. Make sure you don't call directly to the restaurant though, as you'll need to order through orderit.ca with a delivery charge of $6.95. More »

Very good list. Congee queen is very good. Just don't order some of the more overrated stuff (lobster, calamari, deep fried anything.)

I recommend getting a large congee or soup, then a large rice platter with 1 or 2 meat options. Dont buy any veggie dishes...waste.

This list needs more congee joints in Markham.

Another excellent East End option is Pearl Court. I've ordered over 30+ times.
Their entire menu, including many Dim Sum options, are available for delivery. They'll also make any of-menu items you request.
No online ordering, but staff are very friendly, take-out containers are high-quality, and delivery has always arrived before quoted time.

They have Westwood Grill which is better than the 3 places on this list that I've had. Never disappoints.

Ah, north Toronto, you fail me! There's plenty of great food up here but for some reason Chinese is woefully under-represented. There's certainly some crappy delivery joints, and far more offensive - incredibly over priced upscale restos that serve bland mainstays of North American Chinese at unthinkably upscale prices. You have to at least go as far north as Finch to hit those great hole in the wall legit Chinese places - like Hot Spicey Spicey at Finch and Leslie (which is really good and will clear your sinuses).

For anyone in the east-end, Su Good on Danforth is great. One of their chefs is from Guyana if spice is your thing.

Please--don't leave those in Etobicoke hungry! Chinese Food Gallery on Dundas (near Kipling) is awesome--fantastic crispy ginger beef and General Tso chicken!
