Excellent ambience... Yummy food...

This is a must visit if you haven't been here before. We ordered for combinations for the table 1 Veg & 2 Non-Veg and we were a group of 10. That was more than enough for us all. Good tasty food. Don't miss to try the Coffee Ceremony

Okay, I'm a regular and have been there twice in the last week. I can't help myself. I think it's getting even better than it was even though I've always thought it was great. The Friendly servers are helpful about the menu and are very attentive. The food is beautiful, served in generous portions and amazingly flavourful. The injera is... More

Nice, mellow atmosphere, solid and friendly staff, music from Ethiopia's finest and excellent food make this a must experience in Toronto. A great place for a family, couple or solo visit.

I love these guys. I have eaten in the restaurant and grabbed takeout more times than I care to share publicly. The food quality is consistently excellent and the staff are always smiling and ready to help. I believe this is the best quality Ethiopian in Toronto at the best price.

Address: 1408 Danforth Ave. Toronto, ON This is a little gem tucked away in the far reaches of the Danforth in Toronto. My daughter and I stopped here for lunch one afternoon that we were in the city. It was recommended by a classmate of mine who did an ethnic foods project on Ethiopia. Rendez-Vous is a small, intimate spot.... More

We came here after reading the reviews that this was one of the best Ethiopian Restaurants in Toronto and were not disappointed. The place had a really nice atmosphere and the wait staff was very patient and helpful with us choosing our orders. The food was plentiful and excellent. Service was a bit slow but this in no way dampened... More

I came hungry and had to drag myself out happy and full. Every bit as good as last time and really fast service as always. I asked for a bit extra because I was starving! They gave me a lot extra and I devoured it as if it was my first meal of the week instead of my fourth for... More

I intended to have a small late night snack the other night, so I though why not Ethiopian food? This being my first time having Ethiopian on the Danforth, I went to Rendez Vous. We were greeted and seated quickly, and got offered some hot spiced tea, which I highly recommend on a freezing night. As I am familiar with... More

Staying in East York

Neighborhood Profile
East York
East York includes a portion of old, industrial Toronto. Densely populated but incredibly safe, it boasts some of the city's earliest gardens and gardening clubs, attracting green thumbs everywhere. The tranquility of the Don Valley River area, which is rich with Toronto's oldest and tallest forests, is supplemented by the large ensemble of authentic and refurbished Edwardian homes, giving parts of East York allure. The other draw is for foodies: lovers of Bangladeshi fare will find authentic restaurants and markets in the area, with raw spices and desserts. East York also represents a lot of Toronto's Serbian food culture, and recently, has had an outcropping of solid microbrewery stops. For families, the science center is a favored weekend stop.
