Enjoyed every "moment"

Went here to celebrate a birthday dinner with friends and was immediately wowed by the decor. Buddhist, Persian, Arabic influences with a Japanese menu :). Very large space perfect for hosting a party. There was a private party going on in one section. Well spaced out tables, which provided... read more

My husband and I came here for a night out and ended up having a hard time leaving. A dance hall renovated into a lounge restaurant and art hall. A classy atmosphere, a delicious and inventive menu, comfortable dining areas and inspired with art pieces that you really had to take a "moment". We probably came for their menu choices.... More

If you drive, there seems to be free street parking after 6pm (from what I could see on the parking meters). No parking is provided by the restaurant. Once inside, the area is spacious. Decor is more middle-eastern with the wood panels/doors, buddhas and sheers and low lighting. The tables are spread out with some low ones with couches, circular... More

I consider myself an experienced caterer and event planner in T.O. but knew nothing of this wonderful gem in Leslieville. A friend introduced us to it back in spring of 2014 and I knew then I wanted to do something in the space. So, I chose my husband's surprise 50th for the occassion. 22 guests dined and drank to their... More

What a great and relaxing place. This is our second visit. Superb wine list, great drinks, AMAZING food. They certainly know what they are doing. Every course provides succulent options. We are foodies. This place totally rocks. And the best part? The atmosphere let's you check all your worrie at the door.

I went here for my anniversary because I read a lot of great reviews in trip advisor. It's described as a lot of nice artwork or sculpture. Once I've stepped inside I didn't find it special at all. I felt I was in a sort of basement partially renovated with some cheap imitation decorations. Music was loud tables were awkward.... More

We went to the House of Moments for the first time on Nov 27, 2014 for dinner with friends. My friend and I shared the Persian Roll and the Butter Curry Roll. After eating, my friend and I were both violently ill. Also, I later found out that the Butter Curry Roll had salmon in it, an ingredient that was... More

I took my son for his birthday dinner to House of Moments. The food was absolutely incredible. The presentation of the food was beautiful. Service was a little bit slow since there was just 1 waiter and he was struggling between 5 sets of customers. Owner was very nice. He stopped at each table to chat a little bit. The... More

While visiting Toronto, went here with a friend upon the recommendation of a restauranteur where we ate last night. Upon entering, the space was weird in a good way: a warehouse with no effort made to disguise it. A scattering of seats. No sushi bar. Odd middle eastern art on the walls (all by a single artist, and all for... More

We chose this restaurant, close to home, for one of our "date nights", aka, leave five teenage boys behind and enjoy one another. On Carlaw Avenue, tucked away from the main drags of Queen Street East and the Danforth, you need to know this place exists. It has been set up in a huge old warehouse space, and it is... More
