Perfect student hangout

It's got all you want for a student to wind down after studying all day at uni: cheap beer ($10 pitcher), cheap food with $2 Tuesdays. Food isn't amazing and service is decent. Great to wind down at tho.

Great wings, cheap beer, what else can you ask for? Right beside UofT, there is a pool table and a patio. Great place to get drunk in the summer. You can definitely meet some interesting people there.

I was recently at Einstein's on a Friday afternoon to catch some World Jr. hockey action. The wings as always were top notch, large and juicy. They have a pretty good beer selection as well. I enjoyed pitchers of Amsterdam and Grolsh. Prices are on point with what you would expect, however they also have a "house brew" which is... More

Food is just OK and the place is dark and run down (it's a basement pub). The beer is good and the service is OK (not stellar but no complaints).

Steins is one of my regular haunts after a day (and occasionally morning) of studying at UofT. It isn't dining of Michelin star quality, but offers a variety of decent pub food at a reasonable price. I'm particularly fond of wings and stop in once a week to enjoy a pound of them with a pint of their house-brew, Einsteins.... More

Great for grabbing a pint or two, especially if you need to be on the U of T campus! It has a pool table and a really great vibe.

Toronto's main Chinatown has the honor of being the largest in North America. Gaping down across Dundas Street West and Spadina Avenue, the area is a wonderful medley of shops and restaurants, busy signs and bright red gates, a destination for foodie fun. Chinatown's streets are always bustling, packed with people and outdoor stalls hawking fresh produce and products. The restaurants and authentic marketplaces that shoulder in against each other display shining roast ducks and menus studded with dumplings and noodle bowls. The air is pervaded with music. different languages, and the smell of fried food and mouth-watering desserts. Chinatown's restaurants represent a broad range of fare, from traditional Szechuan and Shanghai foods, to other Asian delicacies, including some of the top Japanese, Vietnamese, and Korean spots in the city. Whether you're in the mood for a sit-down tea house or a bubble tea to go, Chinatown is the spot to enjoy an exciting walk and the promise of leaving satisfied.
