Went for breakfast. Lots of options, very inexpensive but still good quality. I had chocolate chip banana French toast and my boyfriend had one of the breakfast combo platters. Everything was delicious and the juice was fresh squeezed. Service was excellent! The only downside was that it was a little hard to find. Didn't realize it was actually part of... More

This place is amazing. We were not expecting much when we walked into the food court but this place is a hidden gem! Karine's gives you a restaurant feel in a food court! Food, portions and price were all spectacular! We walked 15 minutes every morning to eat at this place. All kids of options! If you are anywhere near... More

Pros: Great food and shakes. Generous portions. Good for Vegan and Vegetarians too. Reasonably priced. Takes debit, credit, and cash. Friendly staff. Wheel chair accessible. Cons: If you want a restaurant, well, it is in a food court, not really a con if you don't mind. Review: I must admit, when my spouse took me there for Sunday morning brunch in... More

What an AMAZING Find!!! I couldn't believe that you can get a meal on a real plate with real cutlery in a food court. My veggie wrap had a sundried tomato tepanaud and roasted crisp veggies plus a salad and fresh fruit for $5 bucks! Wow! AND this is downtown Toronto!! Incredible! It was really delicious. Thanks for a great... More

​The place is inside a food court but the quality of the food is far better than your standard food court fare. I had the huge breakfast meal, which the motherly wait staff gladly customized so I had a salad instead of pancakes.

This place got great reviews but I wasn't blown away. First of all, I am not a fan of having everything on one big plate. Also, I don't need super cold water, but the water was actually warm. A little ice could have gone a long way. I had the Vegan Goodness. It was very greasy and the garlic was... More

We walked a good distance to this place based on reviews. We were not disappointed with the food. We were disappointed that we were taken advantage of. Since they only take cash, we called ahead to make sure they take U.S. Dollars. The owner said she would. Our bill in Canadian dollars (after all the "extra" charges for Gluten Free-each... More

Chinatown's streets are always bustling, packed with people and outdoor stalls hawking fresh produce and products. The restaurants and authentic marketplaces that shoulder in against each other display shining roast ducks and menus studded with dumplings and noodle bowls. The air is pervaded with music. different languages, and the smell of fried food and mouth-watering desserts. Chinatown's restaurants represent a broad range of fare, from traditional Szechuan and Shanghai foods, to other Asian delicacies, including some of the top Japanese, Vietnamese, and Korean spots in the city. Whether you're in the mood for a sit-down tea house or a bubble tea to go, Chinatown is the spot to enjoy an exciting walk and the promise of leaving satisfied.
