I love this place. Worth the trip from NJ. Got a falafel laffa with eggplant, red cabbage, hot sauce, tehina, and salad to eat there, and one for the trip home. The husband did the same but with a shwarma laffa.

There's one thing you need to know right off the bat. This place serves Strictly food which means it's closed Fridays & opens Saturdays after sundown. For those of you who may not know what a Laffa is, it's basically a type of flat bread...More

I have been Dr. Laffa several times and have loved every visit. Its one of those places where you absolutely "have to go to" when you are in the area. The laffa's are made in oven right in front of you and they are fabulous....More

I have had better kosher meat in Toronto, specifically shawarma in a laffa. The service was also a little rude. I will not be returning.

I have taken out from Dr. Laffa on several occasions and love the laffa bread, particularly with schnitzel. The place has accommodation to eat inside (counters) but it really is a take out spot. The trimmings are great and I've also enjoyed the shawarma and...More

The place is strictly kosher so it's not open during Jewish holidays or the sabbath. The location is industrial. Close to Dufferin and Steeles and the Thornhill Jewish community. It was quite welcoming and there was no sense you had to be Jewish or religious...More

Talk about "off the beaten track" ? This little restaurant is hidden away in an ugly industrial estate in the north end of the city, and not that easy to find. We were encouraged to give it a try by a very favourable newspaper review....More

North York
North York is one of Toronto's most culturally diverse
neighborhoods. Home to a number of cultural events
throughout the year that celebrate the city's varied
ethnic communities, it's always worthwhile to see
what's going on in the area. Its cross-section of
inhabitants include students and long-time residents,
giving North York an eclectic feeling of being both
local and international. Extremely family-friendly,
