Need to Know from … Vacay.ca Co-Founder Adrian Brijbassi:“Yiu Tong Leung has operated his restaurant for five years, serving dishes that originated during his time cooking in Hong Kong’s Exchange Square. The 70-year-old owner and chef says it is visual appeal that helps to differentiate his food.”

Vancouver Magazine’s Lee Man says: “The absolute epitome of Hong Kong-style, cultured Cantonese cuisine. The flavours are pure and tight — with technique that brings forth the natural sweetness of top-notch ingredients. Clean and pristine on the palate, Hoi Tong never weighs down taste with heavy-handed sauces.”

Toronto Life’s Renee Suen says: “Incredible cooking that is not only impressive, but on another level compared to similar Cantonese-focused restaurants within North America. The room is small, and the specials may require pre-ordering, so plan in advance and go with a group. There isn’t anything here that won’t impress.”
