I'm a Chinese. It's the worst Chinese restaurant I have ate in Canada! The lobster is the smallest lobster in my mind! They hadn't clear the inside of lobster very cleanly. It is a disaster. The noodle is day and over-cooked. The other sides are terrible too. It's the worst in my experience. Don't come!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

This restaurant has been around so long that it is one of the cornerstones of Chinatown and has a much more pleasant décor than most restaurants in the area. I've dined there many times over the years and the food is consistently excellent! Both the lunch-time dim sum and the dinner menu are wonderfully varied and always tasty. Service is... More

We were here on a Friday for Dim Sum at 1.40 and we were told that no more DIM SUM carts and we have to use the menu to order DIM SUM. Normally, Dim Sum carts go around until 2.30pm but they seem to cut it all out. We drove past 2 other a la carte DIM SUM places close... More

The Dim Sum here is good, but it used to be excellent. I feel like everything was good, but missing that extra touch that used to make it fantastic and worth coming to. Going to Yangtze has been a tradition among friends for many years, perhaps it's time to try a new place. I feel like in some of the... More

We recently went to the Yangtze for dim sum for the first time in a few moths. We went at 11:30 on a weekday, and it was not very busy. The dim sum cart service was efficient and, as always, had great variety. One of our choices was the dim sum crispy noodle dish, and it was delicious. We had... More

If there is a place that has been a cornerstone of my life it's the Yangtze.I have been going there since the 80s and will continue until I can't anymore. The food is excellent and the atmosphere is perfect for me! Thanks for all the memories and great food. Scott

This is my third Yangtze review and, like those before it, concentrates on Dim Sum. For about ten years we have frequented Yangtze for Dim Sum and, until recently, it was a thoroughly enjoyable experience. For my last review, it was the service that had began to slide. We saw the best servers less and less often and the servers... More

The menu is really interesting. The food is great for a reasonnable price. The service is so-so, with the waitresses barely speaking English. I will be back for sure.
