Savour a rainbow of flavours at SHINYI Seafood & Handmade Dumplings

Just south of the hum and hustle of Yonge and Bloor, there’s a serene, sophisticated spot where traditional Chinese cuisine is handmade to exacting standards. With a menu of delicate dumplings, noodle and rice dishes, soups, dim sum and mains featuring pork, poultry, seafood and beef, SHINYI Seafood & Handmade Dumplings satisfies every craving, invariably leaving guests wanting more.

With a tempting menu and dazzling signature dish, SHINYI is the type of spot where feeding yourself -- and your Instagram -- is as easy as placing your order. Though in Toronto, we’re no strangers to dumplings, few are as fresh and flavourful, as tender, and as colourful as the ones offered at SHINYI. Upon arrival, guests are invited to watch as dumpling artists roll, fill and crimp each morsel by hand. Each day, the team creates a tempting assortment, each filled with meat, vegetables or soup, with no artificial colours, flavourings or MSG. For its signature dish -- whimsical Rainbow Dumplings -- the restaurant serves a septet of flavours, naturally dyed with fruits and vegetables and made to order. From the pastel-pink zucchini and egg dumpling to the profoundly purple sweet sticky rice offering, each vibrant mouthful is as glorious to glimpse as it is to gorge on.

Though the restaurant’s signature dish is reason enough to visit, there’s more to SHINYI than its kaleidoscopic steamed dumplings. Dim sum includes the vivid RainBun along with Salted Egg Yolk Puff Pastry, Chive Pancakes and Spring Rolls. For special occasions -- think birthdays, anniversaries, even engagements -- you’ll want an order of the team’s sweet, baby-pink-hued Rose Dumplings filled with red bean paste in place of a real bouquet.

The diverse menu includes appetizers such as Fried Peanuts with Sweet and Sour Sauce and Shredded Chicken with Chili Sauce. On the lengthy list of mains, diners will find options for vegetarians, as well as for those who love meat and seafood. Whether you’re cautious with spice or demand to break a chili-induced sweat at every meal, there’s something at SHINYI sure to satisfy. From perpetually popular Kung Pao Chicken and Hot and Sour Soup, to the team’s wondrous Jumbo Shrimp Casserole and Spicy Stir-Fried Cauliflower, you’ll want for nothing on SHINYI’s vast menu. Overwhelmed by appealing choices? SHINYI’s set menus take the guesswork out of ordering, while providing a taste of some of the restaurant’s greatest hits.

Cold teas, sodas and refreshers offer optimal hydration on hot, humid days. In mango, passion fruit, strawberry or peach, there’s a fruit-flavoured drink for every taste.

We can all agree that eating a rainbow of naturally-coloured foods is in everyone’s best interest. Start with SHINYI’s famed Rainbow Dumplings and you’ll be well on your way to enjoying a diet featuring a kaleidoscope of colours and an abundance of lively flavours. Relax in SHINYI’s chic, contemporary space and experience authenticity and passion in every bite. Or, order in from Uber Eats or SkipTheDishes, and take your time savouring each bite, and getting the perfect picture for your feed. SHINYI Seafood & Handmade Dumplings is open seven days a week, from 11 a.m. to 11:30pm.
