Did a Google search for vegetarian near the AGO. This a short walk from there. In an interesting neighborhood - lots of restaurants. Gluten-free options. Interesting music, friendly, healthy and delicate flavourful menu. I had the Morrocan pad Thai - good fusion cooking. I bought a gluten-free cheese cake to go. The roasted red pepper soup was an excellent starter.

Food: 8 on 10. Delicious, surprising, interesting I would recommend it. My wife and I stopped there by chance and it was an ephifany. Decor: 7.5 on 10. It reflects the eccentricity of the owner and we liked it. Personnel: 7.5 on 10. Professionals are always very welcome. They made us comfortable and helped us in finding "the best to... More

Great service, absolutely delicious food and quaint ambiance. One of "the" destinations to check out for vegetarian and gluten free dining in Toronto.

I visited there today (8/26/16) for lunch with a friend. Neither of us had ever been there before. They have a little patio section at the front and additional seating inside. We were seated within minutes on the patio by friendly staff. It didn't take long for our server, Nicole, to come over and great us. What I really liked... More

I love this place so much because the food tastes extradinaryly tasty. I have visited other places but this place is a treat to vege lovers. They even do take out. I tried the pad Thai which was rich in Veges and tasted very nice.

They are a unique vegan restaurant. Unlike most vegan places, they have a lot of warm and cooked dishes with savory flavors to enjoy. My favorite is the Bread Bowl with extra cocunut curry and the Spicy Eggplant Seitan Sizzler. I have also tried their chef's special a couple of times and was never dissapointed.

This vegetarian restaurant is set in pleasant Baldwin village, a street with about forty five other restaurants, meaning that veggies won't feel too hard done by. Atmosphere inside is a little dark, but service was very pleasant. Food was fine, although the seasoning, good in itself, lacked variety - I got the impression it was the same for everything, but...

After a poor experience at another veggie/ vegan restaurant in Toronto I found this place friendly and authentic with decent food (although my party only had the salads and juices.) A pleasant lunch experience- would go back.

I had a takeout and ordered the drumsticks and avocado salad wrap. Both were excellent. Next time I am in town I will definitely go again.

I am a meat-eater and typically don't LOVE vegetarian-only restaurants. This one, however, is truly outstanding! I had a mint/ginger chiller to drink (YUM), and then split the shanghai noodles and spicy eggplant with a friend. I don't even know which one I liked more - they were both so delicious! The service was also excellent. I will definitely be... More

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.
