I have never had a bad meal here. Old style decor, but, forgiveable. Fish is always fresh and simply prepared without odd sauces or seasonings. Good service, too. Washroom is in the basement, but they have an elevator but I think you have to ask...More

Situated astride Lake Ontario, Scarborough is a
district heavily influenced by immigration. With a
number of low-rent shopping and dining options making
it a highly affordable part of town, and boasting one
