Dim Sum on MOnday

Looking for recommendations to take a group of seniors for a dim sum lunch next Monday. One of them is turning 90 so it's a bit of an occasion though we're not looking to go all out ie. lai wah heen. Prefer a place between Yonge and Vic Park, north of the 401, with good service. Is dimsum possible on a Monday or is that strictly a weekend affair? Would love to hear your input.

Thanks in advance!

  1. Spring Villa on Woodbine just north of Steeles should meet your criteria!

    1. The best place that meets your criteria would be Yang's up in Richmond Hill:
      Closer, not as fancy or expensive, but still very good is Legend off Yonge Street, just N. of Steeles:
      The Spring Villa rec is good.
      Nearby to Spring Villa is the Crown Prince in North York:
      My current favorite would be the Elegance just east of your boundry criteria off Warden Ave, North of Steeles:
      Some of these establishments have early bird pricing on week-days, but this means your group would have to go and order early (nominally before 11:00am, but this time might vary.)

        Hello T Long! Couple of questions for you!
        'Legend'! Now that's a name from way back!! How's the food these days?
        'Elegance' Is it in the same plaza as T&T?
        Just in case you reply tomorrow. Have yourself an interesting 12-12-12!!!

          I don't get to Legend as much as I would like. They've renovated and enlarged the place a couple of years ago, but I've always found them quite consistent for both dinner and dim sum. I think they are family owned and operated as some of the wait staff are the same as many years ago.
          Elegance is a block North of T&T in another plaza. They are next door to the Peking duck place that also just opened a few months ago. They are operated by the Dragon Dynasty group of restaurants. Very elegant space, good service, very good food, and even value (with early bird pricing).

      2. I second Spring Villa. I took a client there for lunch a few weeks ago and found the service to be excellent. The food is good.
