“Really Good Soup”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 6, 2013 via mobile

I had lunch here during a visit to Toronto. It seemed like a nice place and I was not disappointed. Had the beef soup with the fried dumplings and it was all very good. The service was also good. If your in Toronto give the Asian Bowl a try think you will like it I know I did and will be coming back next time I'm in Toronto.

“The place is always packed....decent selection of food and decent prices!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 13, 2012

Fine Asian Bowl provides a better than expected lunch offering than most Asian places tend to offer. I find that with Asian places that either it's so cheap that the food is so crazy salty or that the quality so good but then the prices are way too high. The Fine Asian Bowl meets in the middle ground. Nice flavours with fresh vegetables at a reasonable price. The service was a tad on the slow side with a lack of a attention by the staff to drink offerings and just getting the bill. This attention would help turn tables over quicker too, which of course leads to more people served. I've been here a few times and the Fine Asian Bowl is always packed at lunch. It's worth a try with many great offerings on their menu from a variety of Asian backgrounds. From Chinese to Japanese to Thai, there is a hint of fusion for everyone. If downtown, this is a place to try to get away from the hustle and bustle of the Eaton Centre food court.

“decent Pad Thai, nice atmosphere”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 11, 2012

Great little Asian cuisine restaurant.. had the Pad Thai, which was fairly decent. Unusually large chunks of tofu, if you like that. Service was adequate, and the atmosphere is calm and quiet on loud, busy Yonge Street.

“Going Again Tonight”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 17, 2012

Dropped in on this place two night ago and had the Thai Tom Yum Goong and the Thai Spicy Mango chicken. Both were delicious. Food tasted very fresh with lots of flavour. Not too busy on a Wednesday night at 8 with good, friendly service. Prices are very affordable. It's Friday and I'm craving the Tom Yum again.
