The Best Dim Sum in Downtown Toronto
The best dim sum in downtown Toronto has evolved over the years. Cart service has largely disappeared, hotels are no longer the hotspots and many places on this list give their Markham, Richmond Hill and Scarborough counterparts a good run for their money when it comes to killer har gow, shao mai and cheong fan.
Here are the best dim sum restaurants in downtown Toronto.
A relative newcomer, Rosewood in Chinatown serves excellent quality dim sum at affordable prices. It’s always advisable to get a seat on the upper floor (great for people-watching and avoiding cold drafts) while you sit and sift through their diverse menu of dim sum offerings.
A Yorkville classic, Dynasty offers occasional celebrity sightings with your delicious steamed dumplings. On the menu are an array of sophisticated (and rather pricey) options that you normally don’t encounter in run-of-the-mill dim sum joints. Case in point - the delightfully light yet tasty scallop dumplings.
This ostentatiously decorated restaurant has plenty of fans thanks to their excellent dim sum as well the utter ridiculousness of its interior design. Try not to let all the gleam of the marble and faux-European decor distract you from the juicy chicken feet or the tasty shao mai dumplings.
