It is unusual in Chinatown in Downtown Toronto to have a restaurant with about three large picture windows to let in light. The view is of an alley with quite pleasant spray painted murals. Why highlight the windows and light in a review? Because it makes for a pleasant atmosphere!

And the food is good! My in-laws, who are Taiwanese and picky about their restaurants, introduced our family to the House of Gourmet. My daughter chose a sliced beef and noodle dish which was our family's favorite. Great shrimp dishes too!

It is one of the good Hong Kong style restaurants in China Town, especially on the seafood dishes. There are also special set menus for breakfast, lunch and dinner for 1-2 persons and set menus for group of people.

The price of one dish or the set menu is very reasonable and the taste is very good (local Hong Konh style).

The most important thing is that, when compared with many other restaurants in China Town, it accepts cards for payment, which is awesome!!!

I went to Chinatown while in Toronto for a late dinner. This restaurant has excellent food! We ordered the beef with Chinese broccoli and chicken with eggplant along with sweet and sour soup. This is probably the best I've ever had and as a NYer I've eaten in Manhattans china town. This place is nothing fancy but the wait staff were all friendly and the service quick. I would highly recommend the house of gourmet to anyone looking for good Chinese in Toronto!

Toronto has a Chinatown second to none. When visiting this great and diverse city, and you heard about the Chinese food, it is a must that you dine at one of so many restaurants. We entered the House of Gourmet on Dundas Street West. It was full of what I would say local regulars and students and families and even visitors like us. This place was rocking with busy servers and full up tables. We got seated just about past midway and our server came. Some questions about the food and combos and what best way to get what we want. Of course everything is good, so we decided to individually order one or two dishes and eat family style. Our lady server named Jessica, barked the orders to the runners of the kitchen, and wow she had a loud voice. So we had bean curd w Broccoli, Bean curd stuffed, Sweet And Sour Pork, Cantonese Noodles, BBQ Pork Fried Rice and a bowl of white steamed rice. For drinks we had the hot tea they served but found the taste old and stuffy. We asked for a fresh pot. The food came quickly and we enjoyed trying out each dish. It was certainly Chinese food and compared well with our own favorites. What was disappointing was the urgency of our server to get us out and not following thru with any dessert or even offering us that obligatory fortune cookie, until we asked for it. Why did every table get such service except ours. Oh well, dismiss this as an oversight. After all there are plenty more Chinese restaurants we can visit other than the House of Gourmet.
