This is the first place I found to eat on this trip. I wasn't disappointed. The waitress was very friendly and attentive to when I needed her. The food was good and they had free wifi. There was no electric outlet so I was limited in how long I could stay and work on the laptop, but I enjoyed my... More

This restaurant is in the bohemian Kensington Market district: hand-painted signs are the norm, and this place is no exception, with painting even on the air conditioning ducts and tables. Probably not a CEO-class restaurant, and perhaps low on the green vegetables, but really really good on the Tibetan momo dumplings. Our waitress was Tenzin, and she exuded happiness and... More

The staff instantly recognised us after our first visit and were hugely kind and welcoming. We had the pad thai which was tremendous and filling. It's also very cheap, full of charm and certainly worth a visit.

We had lunch in this lovely place: vegetable momos and Tibetan soup. Big plus: since the momos would take 20 minutes, the friendly lady asked if I wanted them right away or should she wait with the soup till the momos were ready. How often people don't care at all whether food arrivés at the same time or not...

This little cafe has the best Basa that I have ever had! They make a wonderful lunch/dinner. If you are looking for place to sit and eat while you are in the Market, you won't be disappointed there. It is a small place, but the food is awesome!

Staying in Chinatown

Neighbourhood Profile
Chinatown
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.
