I had a nice assortment of dim sum here yesterday.
The deep fried squid with garlic pepper sauce was probably the best deep fried squid I've ordered this year. The har gow was delicious...it had a little coriander and shredded carrot added to the dumpling to give it a little kick. The panfried turnip cake was great...crisp on the outside. Good Bbq pork buns, and steamed cream buns. I also liked their sticky rice in lotus leaf. Was not impressed with their siu mai, which I suspect were frozen, or the rice noodle roll with BBQ pork...but I would order everything else again....
Nice service, too.
Comparable to Cha liu pricewise...it was $42 for 2, but that gave us a ton of food. On the whole, I thought the quality was higher than the cheaper spots on Gerrard or Spadina, although I think I still prefer Rol San and Ambassador overall.
Will definitely return.
