Red Room is an average place that may work for you depending on what you are looking for... 1. The food is good. I had the pad Thai and found it to be good. They have a variety of menu items on offer. 2. Prices are inexpensive. 3. Service is slow and generally inattentive. 4. It is easy to get... More

This place is an awesome spot if you want to find some cheap drinks and food. Been here dozens of times and always enjoyed the food. Lots of variety on the menu. It gets busy and they don't always have too many servers on in a huge place, but if you chill out and enjoy the chilled out vibe and... More

I will start with the good. The food was good all of us  enjoyed what we ordered great price and good variety. The bad is the service. It's hopelessly slow. To the point that I called the restaurant to pay the bill. They didn't answer so I left a message. Servers are way over worked. Finally, the ugly, management was... More

It was our first time here and we weren't disappointed. We're told a lot of U of T students go there and so the prices were reasonable. The menu was wide ranging and the food was good. They had a good selection of beer.

Just south of College Street, this atmospheric bar and restaurant attracts the college crowd, both students and professors. You may go for the cheap beer and wine, but I always return for the pad thai which I think is the best in Toronto, definitely if you consider the price point. Other items on the menu which are good are the... More

The Pad Thai is consistently tasty and the staff efficient and friendly. Nice place if you want to celebrate and yet not spend too much. The atmosphere however was a bit dull and some of the sofas on side were smelling as if someone had spilled beer on them.

Went in a group of friends. They got the order of my friends (there were 6 others) and when someone's second plate of appetizers came around, I figured they must have messed up after I waited at least 30 minutes. I flagged down a server to ask. I ordered a simple plate of sweet potato fries. When they did come,... More

Staying in Chinatown

Neighbourhood Profile
Toronto's main Chinatown has the honor of being the largest in North America. Gaping down across Dundas Street West and Spadina Avenue, the area is a wonderful medley of shops and restaurants, busy signs and bright red gates, a destination for foodie fun. Chinatown's streets are always bustling, packed with people and outdoor stalls hawking fresh produce and products. The restaurants and authentic marketplaces that shoulder in against each other display shining roast ducks and menus studded with dumplings and noodle bowls. The air is pervaded with music. different languages, and the smell of fried food and mouth-watering desserts. Chinatown's restaurants represent a broad range of fare, from traditional Szechuan and Shanghai foods, to other Asian delicacies, including some of the top Japanese, Vietnamese, and Korean spots in the city. Whether you're in the mood for a sit-down tea house or a bubble tea to go, Chinatown is the spot to enjoy an exciting walk and the promise of leaving satisfied.
