Just ate at Riz for dinner - LOVED the food, the restaurant has a fun feel, but it's quiet enough to still be able to have a conversation. Service is surprisingly fast and efficient which means that you get served right away, even on a busy Saturday night. Standouts: the thai mango salad and the mango with sticky rice. I LOVE that so much of the food is gluten-free and that the restaurant really works hard to keep the gluten-free food separate. My very gluten-intolerant daughter can eat here without a problem and my other daughter loves it for the shrimp dumplings and mango martinis! This is a favorite place for all of us!

This venue was chosen by Toronto members of our extended family for our annual family Christmas season gathering. Our large group of 16 was easily and conveniently accommodated in a capacity filled room with ample space to move about without disturbing other dinners. The background music was set at a nice volume allowing for easy conversation at large tables. We selected an all you can eat sample menu and were pleased with all aspects. We could share menu items or order individual sample at will. Portions were well sized and refilled quickly upon request. Offerings were well prepared and hot, and sauces tasty. Service was attentive, quick very polite and professional. The decor was bright and open. An enjoyable and very satisfying experience. We would most definitely return.

Busy restaurant! this my second visit to this happening place. Patrons have been returning to this place for a reason. The food is tasty with a "bang" to the palate- Flavors galore...
Service is quick and efficient, the line up calls for a larger place.
If you are looking for excellent food this is the place.

The portions are not large; the sauces overly filling; the service rushed and pushy; the total cost of dinner not insignificant. It is an adequate Asian restaurant in a part of the city not known for great Asian food.

I have now been here twice. The decor is bright, white and sparkly. The cuisine is best described as asian fusion. The first time i was here the food was amazing. The 2nd time it wasnt quite as good. Some of the sauces were a bit too thick and sticky, like they had been sitting around for awhile. The drinks were great. The service is attentive but a bit robotic and lacked the warmth and friendliness that I prefer. Portions are very large and are great for sharing.
