Found the food very salty! Had to wait for 10 minutes from the time the steak was cooked until the potatoes were ready. Was not impressed that as we were leaving, a 12% "restaurant service charge" was added at the till. I went back to the table and retrieved the tip I had left.

This is a little different than your typical restaurant. It's more like a high end cafeteria. You are given a swipe card on the way in. There are a number of vendors inside with a wide range of food to select from. You order your food and then the vendor swipes the total onto your card. You can leave from a couple of exits where you hand them your card. They verify your order and you pay. Each person should have their own swipe card even if one person is paying for multiple meals.

All four of us had different foods from different vendors and all the food was delicious. Although there is no table service, staff do come and clear your plates as you finish.

This is located in the same mall as the hockey hall of fame. It's within 10 minutes walk from Union Station, Fairmount Royal York, Air Canada Centre, etc.

After visiting the Hockey Hall of Fame we came across this place in the same building. Definitly interesting and different. It worked out well for our family since we all like different foods. They cook your meal for you at all of the different stations and then slide your card to put it onto a bill. It is a bit on the high side for price but the food was very good. The staff there were very friendly as well. Would definitly go there again and reccommend that visitors at least try it once!

Had Ceasar Salad which was made while you watched. I was asked if I wanted chicken or shrimp but there was no warning of "extra" and the pricing was not visible on their board at the salad station. The Roast beef was delicious but the hot veggie side is an extra! You only get potatoes. You can get gravy and not pay extra for that.

Watch out for the automatic "gratuity" tacked on to your bill to which HST is then charged. Since when is a tip taxable at the till?

It's a novel concept for a restaurant and very popular. Haven't found anything like it out west.
