The Best Dumplings in Toronto

There's plenty of choices when it comes to the best dumplings in Toronto. There are many dumpling restaurants across the city but what sets the great apart from the good are the delicate folds of the wrapper, the complexity of the broth and the richness of the filling. Though the definition of a dumpling can vary widely based across several regions and cultures, we wanted to focus primarily on the East Asian variety. From boiled to steamed to pan-fried, dumplings will always hit the spot no matter how you swing it.
