Dragon Boat Fusion Cuisine

Single-handedly responsible for the lineups you see in a nondescript Richmond Hill plaza, Dragon Boat has a reputation among dim sum purists second to none. Expect a decadent mix of delicious traditional items along with zany takes on classics like avocado and eel-stuffed cheong fan.

Rosewood Chinese Cuisine

The popular Chinatown restaurant has consistently served excellent dim sum at affordable prices. With two floors, it's that rarest of dim sum places where you can people-watch and munch down on delicious har gow.


Perfect Chinese Restaurant

Perfect Chinese Restaurant

Open 24 hours, this Scarborough destination is the place to stumble in at 2 am looking for some dumplings. So popular with locals it's practically an institution. Perfect isn't perfect, but pretty close to it.

Spring Villa Chinese Cuisine

Spring Villa Chinese Cuisine

This Markham restaurant is one of those classic dim sum places that just keeps going strong despite the rather chaotic dining room. The deep fried soft shell crab is the thing to get here, while the pork and shrimp shao mai never fails to satisfy.


Crown Princess

Beyond the ostentatiously over-the-top faux-European decor, this Bay St. restaurant is a good downtown option for premium dim sum items like goose liver shao mai along with classics like har gow and BBQ pork buns.


Luckee

Luckee

Susur Lee's all-day dim sum restaurant a short walk from the Rogers Centre serves up unique fusion takes on classics. What's more, the drinks here are better than anywhere else on this list. Don't miss ordering the sangria.

The prices at this Yorkville mainstay are higher than most point but at least they have good service to match. Always a popular option on weekends, Dynasty has a large selection of offerings that'll meet the needs of most dim sum enthusiasts.


Kwan (York Mills)
