It was a great experience overall. The food and service were good. The worst part about it was being told that I could not charge my meal to the room at the end of a great meal.

Average Dim Sum. Years ago this place was outstanding. No longer. Very poor, slow to non existent service. I’ve taken Lai Wah Heen off my list.

Downtown
At the heart of Toronto, Downtown is the destination
for cheap eats and fast fashion. Cut through by hip
and trendy Yonge Street, the vibe here is young, with
a strong student influence from the Ryerson University
Campus. As a result, the Downtown area is always in
flux: undergoing the construction of new facilities,
with fresh retail spaces and pop-up cafes. Home to
