ISO Chinese Banquet Food $600
Thanks KevinB. Ambassador sounds like a good option.
Was looking for tasty food and nice ambience.... good value menu would be a plus.
Does anyone know about O'Mei banquet style menus?
There was also mention on another post, but can't remember the restaurant names.
I think there was one at 16th Ave and Spadina in Richmond Hill or also one on Leslie St north of 16th in the "airport" looking mall. Any comments on these restaurants?
Latest fav., include;
Legend - Glen Cameron ( Yonge/Steeles )
Dragon Boat - Hwy7/ Beaver creek
Full House - Hwy7/ Chalmers
Casa Victoria - Warden/ Hwy7
Spring Villa - Woodbine/Steeles
All of the above have $598,$698 banquet style menus that feature whole roast suckling piglet, abalone, sharksfin ,lobster, steamed live fish, free range chicken or roasted pigeons..etc,
re: Charles Yu
Just want to comment on Dragon Boat, had a ~$600 banquet dinner recently, the roast suckling piglet is some of the best I had in Toronto ! Light and crispy skin, a thin layer of soft fat under the crispy skin, no weird piglet smell that many of the restaurant have on their suckling pig. The other dishes are not bad. But the abalone is the dried one from Middle East, big in size but texture is like rubber...I guess may be an upgrade one will be better.
Almost any chinese restaurant you choose will be able to work with your $600 budget (except for really high end places). Perhaps you could let everyone know if there is a specific dish that you would like to have or a deal breaker that you can't stand (like bad service).
I have had several banquet dinners at Ruby restaurant (scarborough) I find this place has decent food for the price, nothing spectacular though.
