R&D Restaurant – Toronto

 

4.8/515 Reviews

In compliance with provincial legislation, we will be temporarily closed for indoor dining as of Oct 10. Takeout & delivery is still available!

R&D is an urban casual restaurant in the heart of Toronto’s iconic Chinatown, headed by first-ever MasterChef Canada winner Eric Chong and his mentor, Michelin-starred restaurant owner Alvin Leung. The stylish interior reflects R&D’s dualistic nature: open & abuzz with energy while preserving an intimate atmosphere.

At R&D, eastern dishes meet western style in the form of modern Chinese sharing plates, where classic ingredients are given a vanguard treatment.

I really enjoyed that it wasn’t basic Chinese-restaurant food. It was pretty hip (and noisy), but then again, my visit was on a Friday evening.

It took us six years after Eric won the first MasterChef Canada competition to finally make it to his restaurant. We ordered the marrow, fried chicken and fried rice which was very filling for the two of us. Each dish was so flavorful. We were able to scan a QR code on the table to view the menus on our phone. The staff were all great about providing a safe dining experience with excellent service. Will definitely come back again to try some of their other dishes.

Excellent service, the servers know the menu really well and make great suggestions. Food is all to share which is fun for a date – we had the dim sum buns (amazing!), bone marrow, low mien and bok choy side, all very good but I’d say dim sum and bone marrow were our Favorite. Cocktails are also incredible, if you can make it there before 7 for the $7 special. Worth it to pay full price though, very nice ingredients. I think our servers name was Ray…he was very attentive and knowledgeable. Thank you!
