After a disappointing trip to the Asian Night Market last weekend, a friend and I decided to forgo their really expensive street food and headed over to Royal Treasure for dinner. I had eaten there once before some time ago and recall enjoying my meal but I didn't find out until after that I should have the hot and sour soup. It's been on my bucket list for ages so I decided it was time to try it.

When we arrived we were lucky enough to score the last table and the waiter provided us with a multi page menu. This could be a challenge for the indecisive types like me ;) I ordered the hot and sour soup to start and my friend ordered a wonton soup. I was disappointed with the hot and sour soup - I was expecting something really spicy but it didn't taste spicy at all ;( My friend said her wonton soup was really good.

We both ordered the seafood with mixed vegetable fried noodle dish (#236 on the menu) and it was probably the best fried noodle dish I have ever had.

Despite the disappointing soup experience dinner was really good and the customer service was excellent. I will undoubtedly be back.

We used to eat there a lot before my daughter became vegetarian (and me too, mostly). KC your post reminded me there are some great vegetable only dishes I could go back there to enjoy. I have a friend from China I recommended the place to, who says it's not authentic . . . but I've long ago stopped worrying about what's authentic . . . I just go for what I like.

We usually stay away from greasy noodles and go for the fresh stir fried vegetable dishes at Royal Treasure. Chinese greens here are to die for and the plates are totally humungous.

screw bluesfest junk food and mozy down on over to chinatown for some awesome pre-concert chow. chow mein @ the treashhhz. basic, simple cantonese that's ultimately satisfying. sometimes stuff like this can overshadow complex dishes. portions are GY-NOR-MOUS which is the size of 3 entrees at most byward market resto at 1/5th the price. must doggy bag for the next day's lunch AND dinner.

egg plant stir fry @ the treashhhz. outstanding value and flavas for under $10 bones. this pic is worth 1000 words.

the treashhhz has mastered the shrimp. butterfly cut, phat juicy and plump. lots of chinese greens and this makes for lean physique nutrition. love yourself naked.

you get a TON of stir-fried chicken for 10 bones cheap @ the treashhhhz. comes with black bean sauce and veggies.

pork and veg spring rolls @ the treashz. house-made and twice the size of the egg rolls @ golden palace. i find these nugs more balanced in flavor with equal pork and cabbage onions and carrots. think crispy and flaky crust giving that potato chip crunch sound effect when you pop these suckers. same detection of 5-spice, MSG etc... but fried in vegetable oil resulting in a more oily offering but slightly healthier alternative to lard. now if they had wasabi to go along this... you'd be one step closer to utopia!

plum sauce @ the treashz. flavor-wise, my fave spring roll dipping sauce in town. strong, thick, smooth and zesty. after having this, i've found that most other resto's have sauces too mild or unadventurous.

singapore vermicelli @ the treashz. zooming in doesn't make their portions any bigger LMAO! who can beat this for $9 bones cheap. NOTE: singapore fried noodles is an american wanna-be chinese dish. when you go to asia and order this, you'll be the laughing stock of the entire establishment.

I have been a regular at this place for over 10 years. I have been to restaurants in tor,nyc,mtl,halifax,atlantic city.........nothing compares to this place. I always try to find it everywhere I go but it cant be beat. Love that its family owned and the service is always great.

hot & sour soup @ royal treasure. not an exciting photo but the taste is perhaps the best in north america.

been loyal to this place for almost 15 years already... gosh time flies.

Definitely the best H&S soup in the city. I find LiveToEat's comment interesting, because what I love about this soup is that it's always a little bit different: spicier, sweeter, more savoury. But it's almost always amazing!

I have been a lunchtime visitor for 20 years. Their 10 preset specials at $6.95 are inexpensive always fresh, and generous quantities. I particularly like the szechuan beef special with a bowl of hot & sour! For me it is the best hot & sour soup in town !

The definitive H&S soup is at Royal Treasure... they are inconsistent, but when they get it right... it is better than anything I have had in Toronto or this side of HongKong!

I don't like advertising this restaurant as I think they are overpriced... but they have some interesting things....

salt n' pepper shrimp @ royal treasure. 12 guzungas for 10 bones cheap. with their economies of scale, i can't make this at home for better value. big phat juicy plump shrimp is more than an oxymoron here as they use larger sizes and butterfly cut them with tail on. comes with a nice spicy oil dressing with chopped red and green peppers on thin shaves of lettuce as a refresh contrast against the sizzling shrimp. in comparison with those of nearby chinese joints down somerset, when it comes to shrimp, royal treasure is the master of their domain. 110% lipsmackingly delish. OWWWWWWW!
