Casa Imperial Fine Chinese Cuisine

Has anyone visited this place yet at Warden & Steeles in Toronto?

It used to be Devonsleigh Place > Prime Restaurant to now Casa Imperial Fine Chinese Cuisine.
Is it a fine dining Chinese Restaurant? Any reviews would be appreciated.

Dim sum is expansive. It's llike $2.50+ for a small.

don't expect too much out of this place
the quality of food does not justify the price they charge

So the dim sum and other dishes are not up to par with the prices?

Better food can be found with other cheaper restaurants??

Sorry a little OT here... but Devonsleigh Place used to be there for the longest time, right? I remembered it was there in early 2003 when a friend held his b-day and invited us there. I don't remember the food but the place is nice.

I remember Devonsleigh Place had really good steak. It's too bad only Chinese-oriented businesses can survive in that area.

I can only relate a story that my parents told me when they went there with the rest of my family. from my understanding the wait staff there are rude and aren't very helpful considering they market themselves as a higher end place.

One of the items that my aunt almost bit into had a piece of glass in it (don't know if it was a dim sum or noodle what not). They informed the waiter who took the plate of food back, no apology, and didn't even bother to replace it. suffice it to say they won't be going back.
Back for a limited engagement.

I jsut drove past this place and i presume it was lunch time and the lot was full!!!

Not sure if I want to try this place out, but not too many reviews and the ones posted are too vague.

Are most dishes considered medium and the favourites considered as large eg Hai Gaw, Cheung Fun, Siu Mai etc....

Yeah I remember when they used to serve steak there. As I remember it, it was very good service back then. I tried to get in one Sunday, but the place was so packed I just left. After hearing the story about the glass in the food, I don't think I'll even try again. Why is good service hard to find nowadays?

seems like nothing but negative reviews. But since it is borderline Markham and they call themselves "fine dinning" people will still show up because it makes them feel better than us regular folk.

You are only eating the decor, as in the saying in chinese. I will goto the restaurant over at Kennedy and Denison, $1.50 for a dish.
