I am still dreaming about the papaya salad. The Sweet and Sour Chicken (mock) was delicious. Seriously! How do they make mock chicken taste like that? This place is fantastic! The prices are low, the service is friendly and the food is just fantastic! I am not a vegetarian, but this food is so satisfying and delicious I didn't miss... More

We go to this great local vegan resto at least once a month. Son and family are vegan and if we don't feel like cooking, we head to Jean's. Pumpkin soup,taro rolls, vegetable baskets, mango salad for starters, then green curry with mock shrimp for me, Malaysian curry eggplant for son and daughter in law. The atmosphere is casual, very...

I have had the pleasure of going to Jean's Vegetarian Kitchen on many occasions. It is, without a doubt, the best vegetarian restaurant in Toronto. I would think Fresh (multiple locations) is likely the second best, but a distant second to this place. The food is EXCELLENT - I can't emphasize that enough. You will not go wrong in this... More

To be a vegan is not easy nowadays (its my opinion). However, this restaurant has one of the best taste that I ever had in my life! I do miss this place!

So we were driving past the area and I was ravenous! I had turned down a few suggestions and then suddenly remembered Jean's (back from the Jean's Fine Food Catering days)! We went in arrived at 4:00 - didn't realize until after we were greeted and seated that they didn't actually open until 4:30. I apologized and asked the manager... More

The exterior facing The Danforth, and even the interior of the restaurant, is nothing special, but Jean's is our favourite neighbourhood restaurant. Over the last couple of years, we've narrowed down to a handful of items that are always consistently good and to our taste - the mango salad, the hokien me, the radnah, the tapioca pudding. This is comfort... More

I ate dinner here with two friends on a weeknight. We had the salad rolls to start. I had tofu stir-fry, one friend had pad thai and the other had eggplant. They also offer "mock" chicken, shrimp, etc. but since I'm not really a vegan, I passed on the "mock." We all shared and the food was all really good.... More

After a couple of false starts in the service (didn't take all the drink orders, served mineral water with tap water ice, one dish served well before the rest of the table) the food was tasty and filling. Don't expect any sort of spice; the hot and sour soup was physically hot but very bland and their "spicier" curry had... More

Awesome friendly staff with great food to match. Very accomodating and will make any dish the way you want! Always great to be in a restaurant that knows what vegan means! Quiet with nice decor. Good for anyone; families, groups, singles, couples, etc.

Jean's is just around the corner from our home - and is a regular for us. Sometimes we sit in the modest but clean and very nice restaurant, and other times we pick up and bring home their great noodles and other dishes. The selection is great, the food is incredible - pick up a jar of the special spices... More
