Too expensive for the quality of the food

The restaurant was nice, the employee were professional and nice. The sea food was great, the salad was excellent, but the duck and steak were not good at all. Over all I think for the price they charge the food and experience should have been a lot better than this. I do not think I would go there... read more

Ate here with a friend on her recommendation. Everything we ordered was excellent - the Singapore style slaw, Korean beef, cheeseburger spring rolls (yes really) and oh my goodness the duck pancakes were to die for. However, the service felt a little rushed - the concept is sharing plates but we were barely through one before the next arrived so... More

We had a dinner for 5 at this restaurant during a recent trip to Toronto and everyone enjoyed the food and, especially, the interesting cocktails such as Saketini, Lee Lemonade, and Basil Gin Summer Mojito -- watch out though, each of these costs $16-$18. The waiter was friendly and although he suggested that we just let him pick the dishes... More

I was taken here as a guest for a business meal and was reading the menu when the waiter comes in like a bulldozer and recommends we all go for his food selection oblivious to the wishes of the guests. The guy was a drama Queen who basically ruined the experience and wouldn't leave us in peace. We wanted to... More

The food was ok, but a very small twist on what was available at many Susur "inspired" venues. Our server Dan, I recall at the time, gave us the impression he was "too cool for school" and we should feel lucky to be there. This attitude was mirrored in the venue as we were squished in like cattle. This cramming... More

always have to start with the slaw its a fun dish. smoked bacon osters are amazing and the diver scallops were one of my favourite things. come with a large party, share dishes and have drinks. always a good time.

I'll start off with the fact that friends of ours who are huge Chef Lee fans made the reservation. So the fact that Chef Lee was at the restaurant and visiting tables made it a starstruck night. The photo of my friend with Chef Lee that is now her profile picture completely topped it off. We requested the shared tasting... More
