Three of us stopped for lunch and were very pleased. A large variety of noodles and dumplings. We each had leftovers. It doesn’t look like much and is fairly small but would recommend. Note: Cash only

Don’t let the exterior fool you, this restaurant is amazing! It looks really small from the outside but there’s plenty of room and I think there’s even extra seating downstairs. The dumplings are made fresh at the front of the shop and are absolutely delicious....More

Such a nice alternative to the more upscale dining that Toronto offers so abundantly. Basically a diner with seating for probably under 20 and the dumpling makers at the front of the restaurant in full view. No place to have a leisurely meal. Orders are...More

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

Well- pretty hard to investigate from Minneapolis, but saw no sign of closure on-line. It‘s family run so maybe there was a family related issue that had them close for the day.
