Best Dim Sum to bring a friend for her Birthday in the GTA?

Hey All,
I'm looking for a great Dim Sum restaurant to bring a friend for her birthday.
Something reasonably priced but still amazing with good atmosphere.

Not Lai Wah Heen, a little too expensive for my budget.

Any recs?

      Are you willing to go a ways north? I quite enjoyed Emperor. If you want to stay in town, what about Crown Princess?

    2. Just pick a restaurant up North, try Yangs, Casa Imperial, Casa Victoria, Emperor, Crown Prince, Ambassador... Or the downtown Crown Princess as suggested. They are all similar. All ok but not great quality.

      1. Really enjoyed the dim sum at Grand Chinese Cuisine at the Doubletree by the airport about a year ago. Highly suggested.

          I agree! It's lovely there. I'd also recommend, for something a bit more hopping, the new Dynasty. It has opened on Yorkville.

        2. Have you got a car? If so travel out near the airport to Grand Chinese Cuisine.
