If you are fine with a staff not attentive and very slow in serving you, you can come and try prime ribs which is very nice and comes with two sizes to choose. The serving is big for Asian to handle.

Friendly welcome into a nice restaurant. Service was terrific. The food was brought out in a timely manner and it was actually Hot. The background sound was better than most. We enjoyed our meal and would recommend this restaurant.

Great food. Excellent service and close as close can be to the Sony Centre if you're looking to catch a show there. Walking distance if you're staying downtown too.

At the heart of Toronto, Downtown is the destination
for cheap eats and fast fashion. Cut through by hip
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
Toronto's largest indoor shopping mall, a number of
