Lai Wah Heen for dim sum -- what to order?

CookatHomeinLondon | Apr 2, 2010 10:30 AM

In a few weeks I'm taking my wife to Toronto for the weekend to see our favourite jazz pianist on a Saturday night. I've already asked fellow chowhounds to suggest places for an early dinner Saturday -- thanks for all the help!

Now I'm planning where to eat Sunday and am leaning towards dim sum, which I prefer to Western-style brunches. We're staying downtown at the Sheraton, so while I really want to try some of the dim sum places out in the burbs, that will be for another trip, because we will be without car -- we're traveling by train.

I've eaten at several Chinatown dim sum places, my favourite being Rol San, but this time I'm leaning towards Lai Wah Heen, in part because I've never been, and in part because I'm looking for more of a "special occasion" feel since it's not often my wife and I eat out without the kids.

Which dishes would be on your:
(a) Must-have list
(b) Over-rated and to be avoided list.

Thanks for any and all suggestions!

Lai Wah Heen
108 Chestnut St, Toronto, ON M5G 1R3, CA

Rol San
323 Spadina Ave, Toronto, ON M5T2E9, CA
