We are saddened to read the review by Ronny Kumari's works very hard to ensure that we look after all our customers and we pay a great deal to our customer service! Our products have always been of the utmost quality and that is why we have been in business for 17 years with a great deal of repeat happy... More

I'm not rich but felt like it while strolling this district. The famous Bloor street for high end fashion. The pricey but tasty food. You might catch a celebrity or two. A hub for the Toronto Film Festival activities. Feels like a little ritzy L.A. Village.

That being said, if you're into boutique shopping, expensive restaurants and bars and gazing at expensive cars, this place is for you!

Quirky, funky and fun and bit like The Village in New York City. It had lovely pubs and cool shops. If you are in the mood for some high end shopping, this place is a good stop.

I found it very difficult to rate this hood.. About a 25 minute walk from my house, so I'm here all the time...Shopping, eating, people watching. First of all, it's a lovely area, in the centre of the city and a mix of commercial and residential properties. Very easy to get to by public transportation. Parking can be a problem... More

I have bought few items from Kumari's in Yorkville and later realized that they all were very poor quality. Pieces comes off as you touch it. she says it is because they are vintage. Nothing in that store is vintage. even if it was what use there is for it if pieces of your bag falls off. This is all... More

Great place to visit to see how the high class eat and shop. Prices are crazy expensive. Whole foods is my favourite place to visit, as it has a lunch bar to try lots of different items you may have never tried before. Be careful it can be expensive, but it's fun to try!

Some Toronto boomers may remember being taken to Yorkville, near the famous intersection of Yonge & Bloor, in 1967 to see the hippies. If you expect to see any hippies today, you are still living in the Don Draper era. Today's Yorkville is for shoppers looking for boutique stores, superior supermarkets and francophile-oriented newpaper/magazine shops. It is one of Toronto's... More

This small area of posh boutiques and restaurants is the perfect place to stroll, browse and people watch. If it is sunny and warm you bet that anyone with a prestige car will be cruising the ' hood too! The boutiques span clothing, cheesecakes, cigars, to sparkly trinkets for your pooch. There is also a number of good restaurants if... More

Yorkville is ok, but there are so many better places to see in Toronto. Yorkville has very high class shops, hotels and restaurants but for me, there is nothing charming about Yorkville. Usually it is filled with wealthy and often pretentious people who don't provide any vibrancy to the city. You can try to catch some celebrities there during TIFF... More
