9) New Sky Restaurant

New Sky Restaurant
New Sky is a Chinese bistro that serves delicious Cantonese dishes in Chinatown by Spadina. Their storefront may not look the most enticing, but I can guarantee you the quality of food is definitely up there. If you’re looking for something that’s healthy and delicious, the steam fish is a great option. The fish is fresh and it’s packed with flavour from the seafood soy sauce and green onions. But be careful, as this dish contains many tiny bones.
