Grand Chinese Cuisine
655 Dixon Road Unit 20
Toronto, ON M9W 1J3
Why did we dine here? – Grand Chinese Cuisine is a Chinese restaurant located almost next to Toronto’s International Airport. This convenient location made it a no brainer for a quick dinner before our flight.
This restaurant also has very nice decor with fancy linen and table settings. Another place that you wouldn’t find in the San Francisco Bay Area.
Insider Tip – Order the signature dishes.
Cuisine – Chinese (Cantonese)
Location – Near Toronto Airport
Opened – 1993
Service – Grand Chinese Cuisine had just opened when we visited. Service was very good with a helpful waiter.
Verdict – Grand Chinese Cuisine was another solid hit in the Toronto Chinese restaurant scene. Give it a try if you are nearby. Quality on the level of Koi Palace in the San Francisco Bay Area, and decor beyond it.
Grand Chinese Cuisine Signature Dishes – Peking Duck, Pan-Seared Duckling with Honey Mango Sauce, Marinated Free-Range Chicken with Abalone
Grand Chinese Cuisine’s Menu features most of the standard dishes you would expect at a Cantonese Chinese restaurant. They have a Chinese menu that has dishes that are not present on the English menu.
Grand Chinese Cuisine Food Picks:
Pan-Seared Duckling with Honey Mango Sauce ($19.95 can) – Comes with some steamed buns. Very nicely done, a sweet sauce which proved to be messy when it started dripping from the buns.
Honey Glazed BBQ Pork ($8.50 can) – Was lean and bathed in a nice honey sauce. Liberal quantities and a hint of an interesting spice.
Prawn Dumpling ($4.50 can) – Two freshly steamed har gaw with a thin wrapper and fresh shrimp. Expensive but at least we got to try some of their dim sum.
Mixed Vegetables with Bean Curd ($16.95 can) – 8 Treasures which included 3 types of mushrooms, lotus root, celery and more. This dish was located on the Chinese menu.
OK: (Order if you like this dish)
Roast Duck Soup ($5.95 can) – Needed some salt. Otherwise, it was just okay.
Pans: (We would not reorder these dishes)
