Went for lunch with my broker. Quick service, good flavours, good drinks selection. You'll need a reservation at lunch. Prices are high, but not hot for that part of town. This isn't three star quality. It's a business pub. Relatively attentative service. Staff can be...More

This restaurant was a disappointment in terms of food and service. I can't remember the last time I put salt on a restaurant meal but I sure did on this one. I had the grilled chicken wrap and coleslaw and both were bland. At no...More

Starter: Little samosa was not good. Spring roll was nice. Salad: Salmon and arugula was good. Beef bourguignon was ok. Try rainbow trout which was better. Ambiance was nice.. Servers are really nice.

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
