The worst Chinese food in torOnto

dubz May 20, 2012 12:37 PM

Worst Chinese food in Toronto is located at Sea-Hi restaurant on Bathurst street, south of 401. I wud rather starve

    I disagree.
    If you're after Canadianized chinese food from an old-school retro chop-suey house, as opposed to authentic cantonese, AND if you know what to order, Sea-Hi can be quite yummy, but like at all places, the secret is knowing what to order, as few places do everything well, so you're bound to be disappointed.

    The go-to dishes at Sea-Hi are the appetizer chicken sticks, dry garlic ribs, shrimp in lobster sauce, fried rice, and the house-made hot mustard and brown plum sauce with anything deep fried and crunchy.
    I love to head to Markham and get authentic asian food when I feel the urge, but sometimes I want the corny stuff of my youth and Sea-Hi (and Cynthia's in Thornhill) always hit the spot.

      Thanks for mentioning what you like at Sea-Hi. I've been driving past it for years, and have often been tempted to get some take-out when I'm craving Chinese Cdn food.

            I have to ask: What have you eaten there that was so bad and led to your first post?

              Keep in mind that there has been some significant disagreement on here about Cynthia's Chinese, too... with me as a fan for the same nostalgic reasons :-)
              To each their own :-)
