Toronto's main Chinatown has the honor of being the
largest in North America. Gaping down across Dundas
Street West and Spadina Avenue, the area is a
wonderful medley of shops and restaurants, busy signs
and bright red gates, a destination for foodie fun.
Chinatown's streets are always bustling, packed with
people and outdoor stalls hawking fresh produce and
products. The restaurants and authentic marketplaces

Nice atmosphere, 25$ summerlicioius menu with one of the best restaurant I visited this year. Highly recommended. If that is waht you get for a fixed menu, the a-la-carte must be fabulous.
