Came here for approx 6:30pm and was seated right away. By the time we were leaving the restaurant was busy but no line up (approx 7.30). We had the chicken dak galbi with cheese and rice noodle - yum! Tteokbokki was also very good. We would come back!

One of my favourite dishes in Korea involved table top cooking (not Korean BBQ). This place has it!!! There are a variety of different kinds you can order: chicken, chicken and seafood, beef, beef and octopus, etc. You can add cheese, noodles, rice cakes, vegetables to the pan as well. It ranges about 10-15 a portion and you have to... More

This place is a sad excuse for Korean food. For the crap they serve it is highly over priced. I made the mistake of trying something new and had the Kimchi Fried Rice. STAY AWAY. Do not make the mistake of ordering this very oily, very salty, bland food. I was super disappointed with the service and the food. I... More

My wife and I lived in Korea for a year back in the day, so finding a place that makes fantastic dakgalbi was an extra-special treat. Definitely definitely order the dakgalbi with extra rice cakes (mmm) and sweet potato, one order per person, and then sides of rice. They cook it on your table. Keep in mind, as per the... More

I've been to Korea and I love Korean food.. your typical dishes are bibimbap, black bean noodles, gingseng chicken, bulgogi etc. but Joon's is different. Even in Korea I didn't go somewhere like this but the concept is so simple and affordable. Joon's is a specialty restaurant that focuses on their main dish - a hot plate mixed with sauce/meat/veges... More

After being told by several Koreans to go to Joons for Dak Galbi, we went (6 of us/5 were let down and one thought it was good) with high expectations. Let me preface my review by saying that I lived in Korean for 1.5 years and have made and eaten lots of yummy dak galbi. Anyway, the service was slow,... More

One of my kids wanted us to try their new find. A place that serves dak galbi. Apparently there are only 2 places in K-town that serve this dish and Joons is one. The dish itself was fun and deserves its name of "commoners' galbi" or "university student's galbi" as it is inexpensive and there is a lot of it.... More

this is simply the yummiest chicken dak galbi (stir fried, table-cooked spicy chili-pepper marinated chicken dish) we've had outside of south korea itself. joon's staff is wonderfully friendly and the prices are crazily inexpensive - we've been there at least 20 times in the past 8 years and it never disappoints! we love you joons! :)

Staying in Midtown

Neighborhood Profile
Midtown is a dynamic part of Toronto with some of its most stylish high-rise residences and heritage buildings. The area sees busy shoppers with bag-laden arms balancing lattes in paper cups as they travel from one luxury brand to the next, taking advantage of the proximity of high-end shops. The reflecting pools, jogging trails, and nature treks of the Rosehill Revision are always a hub of outdoor activity, and after a workout from either running or splurging, many take advantage of the spas and massage parlors Midtown has to offer. Away from the bakeries, boutiques, and glamorous old theaters of the district's center, locals use the weekend to embrace the more suburban feel of Midtown's parks, tennis courts, outdoor markets, and the manicured grounds of Casa Loma, while families indulge the area's state-of-the-art playground and learning facilities. Of course, no high-brow district is complete without a healthy counter-culture: Midtown boasts some of the wildest street art and full-wall graffiti of any neighborhood in Toronto.
