I almost cannot recall the food experience because the service was SO BAD! We were a group of six who sat at a table that was accessible on 3 sides with one side being a bench. This is only noted because I want to make it clear that our server could take a few steps around one end of the... More

The place has been around now for almost 10 years and it's still a good place to get Korean / Japanese food in the downtown area. It's changed a lot and the quality (and choices) have lessened over the many years since the cooks have changed many times, but it's still a great place if you're looking for something quick,...

I've been eating here for years and the quality has remain consistent. This was the first I be eaten here in 2 years and they have renovated and updated the menus. The servers are still as friendly as ever and you can still get a variety of lunch special options until 4pm! Thad quite late for Toronto and this is... More

It was called something else last year, remodeled and given new name. I have been there a few times, food always good. Bento box is good deal. Friendly and helpful waitresses.

Review based on take-out order: I rated HoSu a 4 star because it was better than a 3, but realistically it is probably about a 3.5. One thing that was great right off the bat was their online ordering system. It was very easy, and user-friendly. I was able to order from my phone while walking down the street. The... More

I had a great meal at Hosu on a rainy May Sunday afternoon in Toronto. I was a little skeptical of the menu at first - one the left side are a bunch of Japanese dishes, and on the right, Korean entrees (I am always hesitant about these asian restaurants that serve more than one kind of Asian food). But... More

Needed to grab a bite between meetings, we decided to give HoSu a try. Service was quick and attentive. Menu isn't extensive but has all the basics that the average sushi fan would want. Having eaten a lot of sushi in Vancouver, I use that as my guideline for judging quality -- HoSu is good, but if you're looking for... More

I have been going to Hosu Bistro for the last ten years. It's not fancy, but it is always crowded. That's because the Sushi is fresh, their Korean dishes amazing, the prices are low and the staff is always friendly.

Found this place just walking back from a day of shopping. Doesn't look much from the outside but service and food is good. Great prices also. Fresh food. We had the udon noodle chicken soup dish and the beef bipbimbap and few side orders...grilled squid...sushi. Friendly staff aswell.

Queen Street and West Queen West
Known as the Art & Design District, West Queen West is one of the most energetic and dynamic of Toronto's neighborhoods. Along with its great modernist museums, clubs, and restaurants, it's home to some of the funkiest specialty shops, ranging from clothing to stationary to collectables, and caters to niche and vintage shoppers of all kinds. That makes it a mecca for creatives, including hobbyists designers, writers, and painters. With ink on their hands and fabric pelts in their bags, visitors to Queen Street traverse the avant-garde blend of historic architecture and ultra-contemporary fare.
