Accessible dimsum place with reservations?

My parents are old and disabled, but love dimsum. Does anyone know of a restaurant that is accessible and takes reservations where they won't be overwhelmed with jostling crowds in a small area? A bit of an oxymoron for a quiet dimsum place I know - thanks for any suggestions (even where to buy decent to take home would be appreciated). Prefer Markham or Scarborough.

  1. Yang's in Richmond Hill or Grand out by the airport are both upscale and quieter with good spacing between the tables.

    1. Spring Villa. The service is particularly nice. I find this place to be busy yet I can still have a conversation.

        1. Crown Princess at Wellesley & Bay might fight the bill. Super luxurious in a hilarious over the top way, not very loud and very decent dim sum.

          1. I tried some Dumplings From T&T that you take home and steam, or pan fry.

            Pyung Hwa Brand Korean Dumplings. they are pre-cooked, so you just choose how to heat them. They were really good. Better than most of the frozen Dimsum, I have tried at Chinese Markets.

            1. Primetime on weekends and holidays will ALWAYS be busy with jostling for the attention of the hostess. My favs are Yang's, Casa Imperial/Victoria, and Spring Villa.

              Calling for a reservation doesn't equate to a table reserved for you. It just puts you ahead of the walk-in queue.

              My suggestion, go Monday to Fri. If you must go on a weekend, get there by 11.

              Lai Wah Heen is expensive but generally much quieter. I rarely see the place packed on a Sunday. Very easy to walk-in and get a table w/ no wait.

                1. re: MissBingBing

                  their website says they've reopened since 3/1.

                  Whether that is 100% accurate I can't confirm as I haven't been back.

              1. Fancy at 14th and Kennedy.

                There's a small place at Apple Creek and Woodbine but the name escapes me...

                1. Spring Villa is becoming my go-to Dim Sum place. Great food and good service.

                  1. While Spring Villa is good for dim sum, it's under renovation until April 5.
