“Fantastic food, don't go for a romantic dinner though.”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed July 1, 2012 via mobile

Food is great but one is treated like cattle. It is a place everybody should try though.

“Local Legend”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 27, 2012

This place started as a hold-in-the-wall favorite of students at Ryerson University. It's now moved just across the street, facing the old "Sam the Record Man" location at Gould and Yonge. Inexpensive, incredibly flavourful, this is highly recommended if you're looking to experience one of the places that locals love to eat. Some of these dishes can be HOT when it comes to chillis, but the easy to follow chilli scale provided allows you to custom order each meal to suit your tolerance of spicy foods.
If you're a lover of tabasco sauce of Frank's Red Hot, stay near the bottom of the scale, you'll find even a "3" to be more than hot enough. Like suicide wings and sweating bullets - try the 10 or 15 before your challenge the 20.

“Salad King YES - Dundas Sq Restaurants NO”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 26, 2012

Very simple. All the restaurants near Dundas Sq and the Eatons Centre are tourist traps. They don't have to try hard because they get lots of tourists.

The only exception is Salad King. Its a little difficult to find because its not at street level so most tourists miss it. All the locals, know it and visit frequently, and love it.

Don't let the name fool you. Salad King is not really a Salad place. They have excellent stir fry and curies.

“fast food king!!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 25, 2012

home style fast Asian food - updated, somewhat upgraded new location - lineups most weekends but moves fast. great place to challenge your spiciness limits - our friends have ongoing contests - don't try higher than #5 unless you're "trained"!
