This restaurant is unpretentious and has a varied menu, very Italian, although they have other dishes, and the portions are generous. The caesar salad was awesome, jambalaya enormous and tasty, and the lava cake, well, not as fond of it as I thought I'd be....More

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

Nice atmosphere, 25$ summerlicioius menu with one of the best restaurant I visited this year. Highly recommended. If that is waht you get for a fixed menu, the a-la-carte must be fabulous.
