Excellent food, excellent service, excellent value. Five of us had a range of starts and mains. The Stews (different chicken and lamb dishes) were tasty and filing. The service was friendly and helpful. Restaurant was busy and would suggest booking beforehand

At the heart of Toronto, Downtown is the destination
for cheap eats and fast fashion. Cut through by hip
and trendy Yonge Street, the vibe here is young, with

with fresh retail spaces and pop-up cafes. Home to
