a tight squeeze but good fresh food

I enjoyed lunch here with some friends. We had salads that were full of goodies and reasonably priced. The bottleneck at the ordering counter is unpleasant as it is also the passage into the restaurant and there's a lot of bumping and squeezing by. This is such an obvious design flaw, I'm... read more

We had fresh and delicious brunch food for lunch - Eggs Benny, Huevos Rancheros, a terrific server, great vibe. I think it's the tastiest lunch spot in the area.

I found this place and thought I would have a quick lunch. Ordered the tomato and basil soup and the quiche. Soup was tepid only, but tasty. I was midway through the quiche when I discovered a long black hair on my plate. My hair is short and grey. My gag reflex made it essential for me to get out... More

Service is quick, even though it's busy. Lunch is well rounded, Quesadilla special was great. Salads are good.

They wraps here are delicious! The curry chicken is my favourite, but the hummus wrap is a close second. It is a really small place, so don't go on the hour at lunch time unless you don't mind waiting in line. It's worth the wait though!

Good lunch spot. Try the tomato basil soup - fantastic! Pizza slices delicious--yes, they're re-heated, but still very very good. Over the years have visited many times; never disappointed.

The wraps are made fresh while you wait and there is often a long line during lunch time. I really like their egg salad & avocado wrap with lots of alfafa sprouts, very fresh and healthy! It also serves meat wraps, salads, pasta salads and quiches. There isn't much hot foods available other than 2 types of soups. It is... More

A vegetarian lunch spot. It's okay, but everything is made before hand and heated up or put in a steam table. Not bad but not great.

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.
