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. The eclectic menu features bite-sized dishes like Grandpa's Fun Guo and CSB (char siu bao), and sharing plates like the Best Duck in the City and Braised Sichuan Lamb Shank. An innovative and vibrant selection of cocktails complement the bold and playful fare.

To secure your order for the "Best Duck in the City" please make a note in the "Special Request" field when making your reservation.
