Dim sum...Mississauga or Toronto

tj2007 Feb 11, 2009 04:33 PM

Hello everyone,

My inlaws are coming to Toronto from New Brunswick this weekend and my mother-in-law is a huge Dim Sum fan. Where can I take them (actually will be about 10 of us) and not be disappointed? My brother suggested a restaurant off Dundas (West of 427) in that plaza with a Pagoda at the gate. Been there before, can't recall the name. Would appreciate any recs you could provide. We are happy to drive to Mississauga if there is a better place there than in downtown area. A casual atmosphere rather than upscale is what we are looking for.

    Emerald at Hurontario+Eglinton is popular:big, busy, cart serviced, large tables. Get there no later than 10:30-11:00 on Sat-Sun. Noon or later=long waits for larger groups.

      I believe that restaurant is called Sun Sun and it is quite good - I go quite a bit. would suggest bringing cash as credit cards have been compromised there. Another good place is Winston Churchill and Dundas called Summit Gardens - again good dim sum.

        You are in luck! Grand Chinese Cuisine inside the Doubletree Hotel on 655 Dixon Road serves one of the best Dim Sum in the GTA.

          Thanks Charles for answering for me. Saw the thread title and immediately thought of that as well.
