With advantage of being located in the heart of Mississauga, Emerald restaurant is known as best Dim Sum in town for years. There is no surprise with long queues when you just get in for a brunch on weekend. Make sure you come at 10:00 am or book first before you go if you don’t want to feel disappointed toward long lines ahead. During weekly days, people from offices around come here for fast Chinese cuisine lunch and thus, it seems always a busy spot in town.

Compared with other places, this would be considered as a top choice when it comes to eating out for brunch or even dinner. Price ranges from $ 2.69 to $ 4.39 per portion. Interesting fact is that their dim sum offer truly big shrimp compared to other restaurants, which contains tiny shrimp or fake shrimp taste with mostly port ground. Good service but don’t expect a long conversation with staff as they keep it short and brief while they are carrying food pushing cart around.
According to trip advisor, the restaurant reviews are good and quick service, clean, variety of food menu. Definitely vote for Dim sum and dinner ideas. The downside is enormous crowd on weekend.
Happy Jade Seafood Chinese Restaurant:
Family friendly spot for get-together with decent price
Being Ranked second after Emerald restaurant and have a good reputation in offering Chinese authentic cuisine food.The price here is cheaper than there but quality is almost similar. Some recommend that it is not only lower in price but better taste than Emerald. They have large hall as well and thus people from Dixie and Dundas area, where gathers large number of Asian residents, usually come here for Dim sum brunch. Also it’s closed to Chinese town area as well; therefore, no surprise with longer line up on weekend.Contrasting with busy weekends, there often have a few quite dinner with a few tables during weekly day. Recommend coming on weekend with more variety of selection and checking out happy hour food menu. Almost same story with Emerald but the difference is they serve food until 2 am in the morning. Definitely a good point to remember whenever you are sober and need a waking up Chinese soup!

Tremendous Chinese Restaurant:
Bargain treat with tremendous value!
As being located in storage firm and warehouse neighborhood, a large number of Sauga resident doesn't recognize there is a Chinese cuisine hotpots located there. However, It has a lot of patrons who come for late night dinner and bargain Dim sum treat.
One more added in fact is they offer happy hours on Sunday after 1:00 pm when every Dim Sum is just a buck per portion. Good thing is they serve Dim sum all day until 4 am in the morning. Lastly but not least, let me spill the bean, if possible, do pay cask for bill in order to grab 10 % discount. Bottom lines are bargain treat for Chinese breakfast ideas, value for large group but just eat and ignore the ambiance and low level of hygiene service!
Now it’s your turn! What other better hotspot would you share with us?
