I have eaten here at least 4 times, mostly for dinner and I always forget how large the dinner portions are, they truly could be shared by two people. The place is great the food is always hot and the service friendly and fast

A bunch of us had kids going to a concert and one of the mothers said she had always gone here in her school days so we decided to try it out. It's a small restaurant , a little out dated but clean, great service and excellent food for a good price. Had a great time there, almost like school... More

My friend and I stopped in here on a whim last week. We were in Greektown and figured what better place in Toronto to have greek food. The place was not very busy so we were a bit skeptical at first. We sat outside in the back, and the service was attentive and friendly. The food was delicious and plentiful.... More

On the Danforth. Certainly worth checking out. We usually like to go after one of the greek parades since it is closer to Broadview and we avoid the rush.

I having been going here for a couple of years and love their food! It is a family run business, and you can see their passion. It is my favourite authentic Greek restaurant on the Danforth. The prices and portions are amazing! It may not look like much on the outside, but give the food a try, you will no... More

A treasure spot that we almost didn't want to share. Take out and sit in but it is very casual, quaint and on the small side. Appears to be a patio seating area so will gave to go back when it isn't -29C to check it out. The food is traditional Greek and so good. Very adequate portion sizes. You... More

I've been eating here for at least 20 years. Food is delicious, plentiful and reasonably priced. Booze is also reasonably priced. Service is usually friendly and always fast. Atmosphere is homey. Ma and Pa type place. Patio out back during the warm months. And you're close to Chester subway station (just west of it.) An added bonus is listening to... More

I'm gobsmacked reading some of the negative reviews of this place. Asteria is a great, unpretentious, family-run place that serves some amazing food - fresh salads, fantastic chicken souvlaki. Service is friendly if not instant. The decor is nothing to write home about - old framed pictures of Greece on plain plaster walls and the most basic of cafeteria tables... More

Asteria is one of my favourite Greek restaurants. It is not pretentious and doesn't pretend to provide anything but good wholesome food at a reasonable price.

Staying in East End

Neighborhood Profile
East End
The East End is an eclectic amalgamation of areas that team up to make this district one of the most multi-faceted and alluring. Home to Toronto's LGBT community hub, Gay Village is alive and pumping day or night with friendly bars, nightclubs, and cafes – its thumb is on the pulse of excitement. For a more relaxed day, the East End has the largest collection of restored Victorian homes, and its stately streets, tree-lined and bursting at the seams with affluence, often sport farmers markets and street artists, epitomized by the effusive St. Lawrence Market. One of the most gorgeous of Toronto's neighborhoods, it also straddles Lake Ontario in an area called The Beach, where you'll find folks cycling and strolling along the sandy shorelines, getting some sun or enjoying shopping, dining, and pub options. For some fabulous food, the vivacious personalities running the restaurants in the East End's Greektown is only equaled by the fun and authenticity of the street stalls and restaurants at its expansive Indian Bazaar. 'Something for everyone' has never been so accurate.
