'Skyview Fusion Chinese' - Sorry folks! Another relatively new kid on the block. This one could be the best 'early-bird' Dim Sum in the GTA?!

I went to Yang's Markham last week on a weekday for early bird. No problem getting a table.

Went to OMG for lunch today. Still busy. But the borscht tasted different. Less depth. Weekend is better because of the premium charge?

'Stone Fortune' - A disappointing 'Hong Kong Cafe' experience.

I tried the ox tongue in onion sauce with rice and borscht today. I like OMG for taste. But thanks for the recommendations.

OMG use Basa & Talapia. Tables are crowded. Black interior. Weekend is one hour seating only. Ox tongue was luke warm while the sauce and pasta were very hot. And they kept the skin on. But there was no off taste. I would go again but not on weekend.

ISO of best dim sum in scarborough/Markham

Dragon Boat doesn't make your Top 6? Haven't been due to the weather. Did try Yang's Markham on Thur. Good service and quality. Early bird before 11 am except Holidays.

Tak Fu Seafood Restaurant, aka 'King of Dim Sum'!! - Do not believe in what you read!!!

Went today for the first time. Quite busy at lunch time. S$2, M$3, L$4, XL$4.8. Tried Har Gao, Siu Mai, Steamed Sweet Bun, Chicken Feet, Chicken with Fish Maw, and Minced Pork with oyster chui chow congee. Taste wise is more traditional. Would go again but skip everything with shrimps. Find the shrimps over marinated with baking soda.

After reading Charle's review, my DH and I went last Sat night. They are licensed now. I enjoyed my duck confit with rice and crispy quinoa. Took the TTC Dufferin bus. 2 mins walk from Eglinton/Dufferin bus stop.

Green Mango Salad (Thai style) - North of the city

I don't know how authentic the taste is but I like the mango salad at Spoon & Fork Plus York Mills/UpJohn. And the pad thai is not orange in colour. Operated by chinese.
