Cute little restaurant - loved our table in a little nook by the window. We enjoyed a three course meal through a voucher we purchased through Travelzoo. Service was good, meal delicious and servings were generous.

Toronto's main Chinatown has the honor of being the
largest in North America. Gaping down across Dundas
Street West and Spadina Avenue, the area is a
wonderful medley of shops and restaurants, busy signs
and bright red gates, a destination for foodie fun.
Chinatown's streets are always bustling, packed with
people and outdoor stalls hawking fresh produce and
products. The restaurants and authentic marketplaces

They were very accommodating, give them a call and check. I think they had gluten free, not sure about other, but they are very helpful there. Worth calling and asking.
