I had a short time to grab dinner before a movie and wanted to eat relatively healthy. This spot fit the bill. I had Chicken teriyaki. It was decent and the spot was super busy with locals.

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

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 came here for lunch. It's only the second time we've had okonomiyaki and we both enjoyed our selections. They came covered in a delicious brown sauce (I forget what it's called) and a nice blob of mayonnaise in the middle. Luckily this wasn't covering...More

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

Yes, it is wheelchair accessible. There is a ramp from the steps outside; there is a sort of tight corner to turn to enter the front vestibule, and no stairs inside.
