This is a small family-run Japanese diner. I've found it by chance because close to my hotel. It's unpretentious, cozy, and very affordable. Staff speak Japanese. Highly recommended!

I've been eating here for 30 years and it remains consistently good. A traditional Japanese pancake-like dish is the main feature and that's why I go, but there are other dishes, as well as tea, beer, pop and other drinks. Very low cost, very filling,...More

Off the beaten path but seemed like a lot of locals were there, which I find is most always a good sign. The restaurant is small, cozy and authentic. I had the Yakiniku dinner which was really tasty, shredded beef on bean sprouts, rice, soup....More

We took two okonomiyakies - one with shrimps and one with beef and bacon. Plus bonito fish. Both were delicious. We paid 24 $ for two meals and two beverages.

Food was delicious. Takeout is available. We got the teriyaki chicken which was cooked fresh. The only reason not to get a better rating is that there was too many bean sprouts it could use more rice or other vegetables. The staff is very friendly.

We were excited about this place, because it makes the particular pancakes that we first tried in Kyoto. The ambience here is nice and the food is good. Another example of Toronto's extremely varied culinary scene.

During our two-full-day stay in toronto we came back here two or three times. It was quick and easy but still really tasty, I believe this style of food can be called "fast-casual".

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
