Description

Praised by enRoute Magazine for its “edible masterpieces rarely savoured outside of Hong Kong”, Lai Wah Heen is an internationally-renowned Toronto hotspot for an authentic Chinese dining experience.

Lai Wah Heen, which translates to “luxurious meeting place”, has been applauded for its excellence in Chinese cuisine since opening in 1995. As well as being lauded for its visually stunning creations by enRoute Magazine, The New York Times have praised the restaurant for “the best dim sum in Toronto, maybe the best in North America”, with Gourmet Magazine further commenting on ”a sense of Hong Kong’s new culinary design”.

Lai Wah Heen’s exquisite cuisine is presented in an elegant beige and black dining room, split into two levels by wide black granite steps. Meanwhile, a solarium-style glass wall and 12 foot ceilings serve as the perfect setting for an original collection of Chinese calligraphy by renowned South-East Asian artist Cheung Ming.

The menus at Lai Wah Heen stay abreast of the latest trends in Chinese cuisine – exotic herbs and spices from the Pacific Rim, skilful use of tropical fruits, and seafood dishes of exquisite refinement. The “Premium Prix Fixe Dinner Menu” is the ultimate Lai Wah Heen experience, spanning multiple courses of innovative culinary masterpieces, from abalone in supreme oyster sauce, to the delicious steamed chicken with conpoy stock.
