Very nice Asian-vegetarian in Kensington Market

This is a really nice choice for a vegetarian option. Really consistent quality and a really good variety. We generally go for lunch.

I have been coming to this restaurant in the heart of Kensington Market for years. It has a large menu including fresh juices. My favourite juice is Cleansing Cherries Cocktail. The green beans are perfectly cooked. Sushi is lovely. Hot and Sour soup is amazing...get a huge tureen to share! Sizzling eggplant is so delicious. I just keep going back... More

We went here on a hot day, and it was so nice to go somewhere nice and clean and with good aircon. The food was really good and there are a lot of mockmeat dishes on the menu. I think it was the owner we talked to and he seemed lovely and let me try a few things in the... More

Had lunch at this lovely place on September 20th. The food and service were excellent - we had the Dinner for Four A. While washing my hands in the ladies' bathroom, I forgot two of my rings on the sink. Left the restaurant and ran back in a panic 20 minutes later, not feeling very hopeful. To my great relief...

We are a vegetarian family and often it's hard to find interesting, quality vegetarian food. We stumbled across this place and were pleasantly surprised. I had a basic avocado sushi and it was unbelievably fresh and the portion size was huge. My husband and son had different dishes and both were happy with their orders. The one complaint would be...

The miso soup was very good, but I don't appreciate to much having huge chunks of tofu on it. Maybe I'm used to have the ones with little cubes on it . I had Seiten and it was just ok, nothing to go ballistic on trying again. Probably other dishes are better. I would recommend it to my fellow vegans,... More

Kensington Market is such a fun neighbourhood to explore. I was pleased with lunch at the King's Café. My vegan friends were able to choose from an extensive menu. They commented that too many things were named after meat or made to taste like it...but I thought it was all very good. If you eat vegetarian, you will find lots... More

We had dinner in this restaurant as it was recommended by the persons hosting us in Toronto. It was very good especially that most dishes are vegan and tasty food.

Its really rare to find vegetarian restaurants that actually provide meat/fish substitutes. King's Cafe is a wonderful little gem in the Kensington Market area of Toronto. A varied menu inc the likes of Soy Chicken Kung Po and Veggie Shrimp, is a wonderful alternative to the usual mix of veg and salad often offered as veggie fare. Service was really... More
