Downtown Chinese Food Quest???

  • p

First time in downtown TO. Looking for good Chinese food, not just high price. Taste and presentation important. Looking for more Americanized Chinese food than true Asian.

  1. Hi Phil,

    I really enjoy eating at the Garlic Pepper restaurant, on Yonge Street, north of Wellesley. Also, one street south of Bloor, east of Yonge is called Roy Square, where there is a place called Roy Garden. Fantastic food! We just obsess over their sweet and sour pork, it's the best I've ever had. While Garlic Pepper offers sit down eating, Roy Garden is more a take out place but there is a high counter with bar stools that you can sit at to eat.

        Spadina Garden on Dundas between University Ave and Bay St is pretty tasty

    2. Sang Ho at Dundas and Spadina is quite good if you like seafood.

      1. Asian Legend on the north side of Dundas, near Beverly.

          They say Lee's Garden is a little more westernized, and it is located on Spadina in Chinatown.

          1. One spot that I quite like is Szechuan Szechuan in First Canadian Place (it is a restaurant located at the top of one of the escalators in the food court). If you go after 1 at lunch the lineup is easier to handle.

            If you go, try the Ginger Beef - you won't be disappointed.
