I've gone through all the recent threads on dim sum, but want you to weigh in on the best place for dim sum in the evening (around 5:30 pm) for a family dinner this Friday. Yes, we look for authentic Chinese and are happy to eat "wierd" stuff. I was considering either Forestview or Bright Pearl (my great-aunt's favourite), but was wondering if any other place in Chinatown should be considered. We are also open to going to Gerrard Street (Chinatown East) if something there is better, e.g. Soon Foon Tai or Super Grand?
Please include details of dishes you have tried and WHY the restaurant is the best. (My great-aunt asked for dim sum because she is visiting from Pennsylvania and looks forward to eating Chinese in Toronto since she's Chinese-American and can't get anything good where she lives!) Remember, they have to serve dim sum at dinner even if it is just from a menu.
