this has probably already come up- but how will the movie to spadina and college change this dumpling house?

  1. Does anyone know if the new location is open? I had a sad moment of trying to go to their old Huron location last week and staring at the vacant space in total sadness. That led to a not so special meal at Simon Sushi (my first time there, but that's another post, I think).
    I was a bit surprised that there was no sign anywhere saying where they'd moved to and that there website hasn't been updated with the new address yet. :(

      Yup, their new location is open. It's just a few blocks south of College on Spadina, in the same place where there used to be a bubble tea cafe (called "Downtown Standard" I think).

      I went last week and things were still somewhat chaotic - they somehow ran out of pork filling for dumplings. The food took forever to get to our table, and they ended up forgetting our pancake order and later telling us they had run out of stuff to make it with, although they comped us with green onion pancakes.

        No, not a few blocks, maybe half a block. Just a bit north of Simon Sushi I believe. The place is BIG!

          Yeah, maybe a half block south of College or so, on the east side of Spadina.

          Walked by Friday night and it was STILL packed! Despite the new place being like 3 times bigger than the old location. Wow.

        Their new address is 421 Spadina Ave.

      3. I was wondering how the proximity to U of T would affect how busy they were. Sounds from the comments that it may have had quite a positive impact on their business!
