The food is fantastic and great value in the States. I haven't gone to the one in Canada but I am guessing it is failing because of low quantity and quality. I hardly see anyone going to Panda Express here.
Well there's your reason right there. Why should anyone else pick up your slack?

We often go to Panda Express in California. Everything on their menu is laced with sugar. I have traveled extensively in the US and not even New York or San Francisco can compare to Toronto or Vancouver when it comes to Chinese food. We have the best here.

Oddly though, the best Thai and Korean food I've ever had was in Los Angeles.
I wholeheartedly agree. The first time I went to NYC, I wanted to eat Chinese food. I figured the city is one of the gastronomic capitals of the world, so it would taste great. Oh no. :(

I've also tried it in several places in Europe, and their quality was just sad. I feel sorry for people over there, thinking that that's all there is to Chinese food.

The real question is, why is Din Tai Fung available in the US and not Canada?
