I love Indian food and the butter chicken here is very poor. This is a rich North Indian dish that should have a smooth taste. This did not. Dry cold rice and a bread thing try to be a naan. But also cold and dry....More

I have visited a number of times. Drinks are fine and the outdoor patio is nice. Food is poorly prepared, with small, overpriced portions. I recently ordered a pound of wings and fries (how difficult is this?). The 7 or 8 wings were tiny and...More

This is advertised as an English Pub and it is, almost. Excellent cold beers and ciders, and really good sirloin steak, and fish and chips. Used by locals.

and trendy Yonge Street, the vibe here is young, with
a strong student influence from the Ryerson University
Campus. As a result, the Downtown area is always in
flux: undergoing the construction of new facilities,
with fresh retail spaces and pop-up cafes. Home to
