A Gem

This place is a gem if you're looking for affordable and authentic types of kitchenware that can't be found in regular stores. I understand that it has been here for several decades in the heart of chinatown Toronto

Best Place to buy home wares

Tap Phong is the best place to buy dishware when you have a short budget. They sell stainless steel serving ware, and a multitude of utensils, baskets, gadgets for the home, Chinese dishware, glassware, and so on. I was not happy with the table linen I bought there but you can find copycat versions of the Browne Elipse cutlery. It was the only place I could find matching soup spoons.

Staff is fairly helpful, but not always as there is sometimes a language barrier if you do not speak Chinese. But there are lots of staff who are fluent. Don't be dismayed by the rows and rows of items. You can find what you want.

Kitchen Wares

Located in the centre of China Town (Dundas north of Spadina) in Toronto, Tap Phong has THE greatest selection of kitchen ware (including industrial kitchen ware) at the cheapest prices in town.

This place is large, always busy and a bit difficult to navigate due to the narrow aisles, but the selection and prices make it worth these minor inconveniences.

The shelves are packed from floor to cieling with an unbelievable selection of food processors, blenders, strainers, regular and industrial sized pots, pans and storage bins, knives, bamboo steamers, chinese tea sets - not to mention a few rather obscure items - their functions unknown to me.

If you like this kind of stuff, spending a few hours here is easy.

If superior customer service is important to you, this may not be your kind of shopping experience, but if you love to feed your cooking or baking obsession, this is the place!

dishes

I love Tap Phong Trading Company. They've got a little of everything, and are always a treasure hunter's dream. I needed some serving dishes and wanted something a little unusual, they not only had some great inspiration pieces, but great prices to match! I'd recommend this place for a good afternoon poke-around, but they're also a go-to for amazing Asian-style accessories and houseware

Dish ware, appliances, home decor

I'm not sure how much I've spent at Tap Phong because I keep going back. They have everything from consumer appliances to professional kitchenware. A cheap half sheet pan for under $10 absolutely outperforms a $20 pan from Home Sense or Kitchen Stuff Plus and they offer some high quality items at great prices.

Their prices are a bit inconsistent as some things are average to above average while other quality items are greatly discounted. It is well worth a trip for their low priced array of table and serving ware alone.

kitchen supplies

The prices are ok and can be found elsewhere. You get what you pay for. The overall shopping experience leaves lots to be desired. The customer service is atrocious in this place, which makes it all not worth returning to.

Kitchen Supplies

This is a great place if you're looking for basic kitchen supplies, as well as some specialized products - this store has everything! From things like pots, pans, utensils, ceramics and rice cookers, to more specialized items like expensive sushi chef grade knives, it's all here! Prices are very inexpensive for basic items, but get more expensive with higher quality items. Great for students or anyone on a limited budget, it's packed with everything you can imagine. It can seem disorganized and overwhelming when you first walk in (as well as cramped), but it's a small price to pay. Staff can range from pleasant and helpful to surly. On my latest trip I found a lovely ceramic teapot selling for $8 less than anywhere else in Chinatown. If you spot something you like, it's a good idea to grab it, since stock seems to turn over fairly quickly, especially in the ceramics section.

Accessories

Tap Phong is a great place to start your search for home accessories. They have great prices on things that you would see at other stores for several times the price. Check here first before you buy!

Kitchen Equipment

Tap Phone is THE place to go for getting good kitchen stuff. There are all sorts of restaurant quality plates, dishes, utensils, pots and about everything else you'll need for your kitchen. It's a bit disorganized, but always ask the great ladies at the front who do speak english and they'll tell you where things are.
And did I mention prices? Can't beat them.
