I'm starting to look at venues for my wedding (~150 people) and want a Chinese banquet style. I know many of the nicer and yummy Chinese restaurants / banquet halls are uptown, but because most of my guests are out-of-town and never been to Toronto, I'd prefer to be closer to the TO skyline. Based on this, here are some of the options I'm considering and wanted to see what people thought:
1. Dynasty restaurant (Yorkville): Love the location because it's walking distance to several hotels. Just not sure if the restaurant itself is spacious enough because the dancing and bar will be important for me and my fiance =) Also heard it's pricey, but food quality is good.
2. Pearl Harbourfront: Love the view, but also concerned it's not spacious enough and heard they changed management a year ago. Another plus is that they are used to catering to more Westerners, which is a good chunk of my guests.
3. Atlantis Pavillion: Read a lot of reviews but not that many on the Chinese caterers. Anybody work with Dragon Dynasty catering service? I'm just worried that the food quality won't be great and the food won't come out hot either. Otherwise, I love the view!
4. Fountain Blu: Similar pros and cons with Atlantis, except they use Grand caterers for Chinese menus. Anybody hear any pros / cons about them?
Appreciate any feedback!!!
