I can't fault fault any of the food choices we enjoyed, but think that the price was very high (parking wasn't totally paid for although it is intimated that it is). It all made me wistful for the noise, chatter and pushed carts at The...More

While visiting Toronto, I'd make sure to have lunch in Lee Wah Heen at least once or twice. Superbly prepared chef Dim Sum selection. Tried their dinner once, I'd much prefer Dim Sum lunches.

The facility, staff and food were all incredible. The best Dim Sum I have had in Canada. The shrimp and lobster were fresh and tasty. Price is high but well worth it.

I used to love this place. I have eaten lunches and dinners there that were always delicious. But this last time, it was just terrible. This may be a combination of the restaurant going downhill, our ordering badly, and being there late in the lunch...More

At the heart of Toronto, Downtown is the destination
for cheap eats and fast fashion. Cut through by hip
and trendy Yonge Street, the vibe here is young, with
a strong student influence from the Ryerson University
Campus. As a result, the Downtown area is always in
flux: undergoing the construction of new facilities,
with fresh retail spaces and pop-up cafes. Home to
Toronto's largest indoor shopping mall, a number of
