house of chan was ranked best steak house in toronto out of ruth's chris, morton's, etc... in a review i read i think few months or maybe last year in a special article somewhere. i wanna go try ..just need to save up first

we're not denying that house of chan can be one of the best but i have to agree with him and saying that place is uninviting. i live a few minutes away and never bothered to check the place out cuz it looks so mysterious and scary.
are the owners chinese?

future, do u go to forest hill? if so, i didn't know they had chinese folks there, i used to go there and im chinese, i thought everyone at that skool was jewish

No, I go to St. Mike's. My friends and I usually try new restaurants after classes on Fridays, but never once has it occurred to us to visit the House of Chan. I'm not denying that their food is good, but an ambient setting must accompany the good cooking, if it wants to attract customers. Frankly, I don't find windowless stores appealing.

633 Silver Star Blvd

It's located in a relatively new strip mall area with quite a few other Chinese restaurants, about 1 minute drive away from PacMall.

Amigo was pretty good, but non specials are quite pricey

I think Amigo is good. The Scarborough Dickens is better than the one at Golden. Most other places suck .. Boston and Gold Horse are BAD. Do NOT go.

hrmm. what else.. Garden (Brimley & Sheppard) is fine for me. But for steaks, why not go to a real steakhouse?

oh one more.. Day & Night was fine in the first few yrs it was opened.. but I guess lately it has changed owner and it sux like sh*t now.. I didn't try dinner but I can see all servers are middle-age men now wearing old fashion uniforms.. their service attitude is fine but again very old fashion.. i stop going anymore

compared to chris ruth's its a good deal... the steaks at houseofchan is about 10bux cheaper from ruth's and comes with salad and a side. whereas chris ruth's dont come with anything at all and you need to order salad and side if you want them. I think i may try houseofchan during the holiday period.
