The Best Restaurants for Chinese New Year in Toronto

Although Chinese New Year will look a little different this year, you can still celebrate the Year of the Ox with a delicious feast in the comfort of your own home. The festival is considered the biggest celebration of the year for Chinese people and this year; it lies on February 12. Traditionally, family and friends would gather together at restaurants for a huge dinner, but now that dine-in isn’t permitted, these restaurants have pivoted to provide a Chinese New Year feast for takeout or delivery.
