Lai Wah Heen

108 Chestnut St.
Toronto, Ontario, M5G1R3, Canada
TEL: 416-977-9899

Lai Wah Heen, which translates to “luxurious meeting place,” serves an upscale dim sum menu that's often lauded as the best in Toronto. Located in the Metropolitan Hotel, the bi-level restaurant is simple but stylish, with 12-foot ceilings, black granite stairs, and beige walls hung with black-and-white Chinese calligraphy paintings. The lunchtime dim sum menu includes dishes like deep-fried taro paste dumplings filled with seasoned emu, while the pan-Chinese dinner menu features the popular Peking duck, prepared two ways: fried and served on steamed rice crêpes, and then wok-fried and served in lettuce leaves with assorted vegetables.


Insider Tip:

After your meal, walk to the nearby Art Gallery of Ontario to explore the world’s largest collection of Canadian art, along with works by Picasso, Monet, Degas, and Rothko.
