Restaurant aficionados have been talking about it since the opening in 1995.

Lai Wah Heen, which stands for “luxurious meeting place,” has achieved the superb quality, elegance and true character of the great Hong Kong restaurants.

With accolades from; The New York Times – “the best dim sum in Toronto, maybe the best in North America”, Gourmet Magazine – “a sense of Hong Kong’s new culinary design” and enRoute Magazine – “edible masterpieces rarely savoured outside of Hong Kong”, Lai Wah Heen continues to deliver the highest standards to Toronto diners. The exquisite cuisine is presented in a calming beige and black dining room split into two levels by wide black granite steps, a solarium-style glass wall and 12 foot ceilings serve as the perfect setting for the original collection of Chinese calligraphy by renowned Southeast Asian artist Cheung Ming.
