The Best Dim Sum in Markham

The best dim sum in Markham arguably attracts bigger crowds - thanks, in part, to having generally larger dining rooms - in comparison to their downtown Toronto counterparts. This is where aficionados and those with a car (or the patience to travel outside the core) head to for some of the city's best dumplings, steamed buns, rice rolls and more. 

Here's the best dim sum in Markham.
