Love this place. Skip the carts and get a sheet and mark off what you want. Menu comes with photos in case you don't know the names of the dishes. Food always comes out hot and fresh! The dumplings are the best. #1 is the usual hargow which is great but venture out and try their shrimp scallion dumplings and... More

Winsor is a local establishment for dim sum. There is no atmosphere here and no one is dressed to kill. Mostly Chinese go here because they know where to get good food at a reasonable price. The service is what in would expect at a place in Chinatown, efficient but not overly friendly. There was 4 of us and we... More

Very good chinese, served quickly and efficiently. The shrimp lo mein was excellent. Crispy egg rolls were delicious. The wait staff doesn't waste time with small talk. The designers didn't waste time with decorations. Nonetheless, a solid meal, reasonably priced, non-touristy. I think this used to be Lucky's Seafood? Will go again.

As I'm a New Yorker, I thought Dim Sum was a Sunday brunch thing,but it is served everyday at this restaurant-kind of like a lunch deal everyday. They don't come around with a cart from which you choose your dishes, but you fill out a menu sheet and in some sort of crazy system the waiters bring your dishes-pretty quickly-to... More

Cheap and shabby - share a table; food whipped out WITH quick Chinese efficiency. Good flavours, authentic Chinese food, service with a sullen chinese smile. Dine and dash and you will feel you had great meal....don't look too close at the run down, tired chairs and tables...after all you in the heart of china town.

Winsor Dim Sum Cafe is small, but we were seated pretty promptly for a Sunday morning. If you come with two people, they will seat you at a large round table with others, which was fine. You get to see what others are ordering. We ordered from the menu which had helpful pictures, and had a good variety of items.... More

The food is satisfactory overall - above average for a "China Town standard" but just average(or even below) comparing with other Dim Sum places I had in Toronto, Hong Kong and Macau. 豉油凤爪可以推荐,在吃过的早茶里面算是上品;牛肚,牛杂有点差强人意;酿茄子油非常大,慎点;其他菜色不算惊艳,属于可接受范围,

Staying in Chinatown

Neighbourhood Profile
Chinatown
A small area rich in Chinese cultural influences, visit Boston’s Chinatown for some great Asian cuisine and small, authentic bakeries. Enter through the iconic Chinatown gate and stroll down Beach, Tyler, and Kneeland streets to explore the compact area. Rest your feet from walking and grab a bite at one of the many restaurants around Chinatown. From traditional Chinese to Vietnamese to Malaysian, there is a wide range of Asian food available, within easy access of South Station. At night, Chinatown becomes a late night food destination after the bars close.
