Hi all,

Well after reading tons of rave reviews for this place re: their Dim Sum, I'm not very happy.

I drove all the way from Brampton rushing to get there before they finished at 3:30 after I was misinformed the first time I called saying that they close their Dim Sum at 4.

I feel like I just wasted $70 (includes tip) - 2 people.

Their spring rolls (chicken & mushroom) were too oily & tasteless.

Their egg noodles with been sprouts had maybe 15 been sprouts & once it cooled down, it's like I put lip gloss on my lips. Tasty at first, but the oil is just toooo much.

The beef balls while HUGE were tasteless.

Their steamed chicken was a mistake. It was almost all fat.

Their mango pudding tasted like it wasn't fresh or even authentic.

Nice staff, but the food wasn't even passable IMO.

I'm used to Tai Pan at Avenue/Eglinton. They used to have sit down till they went all take out & I haven't been there since.

Even the Dim Sum place at Y & E is better.

What a waste of money, I should have listed to the one person who said they didn't like Ambassadors.

Merry Christmas everyone : )

Michelle
