A well run restaurant. I doubt you would come away really disappointed. But there are more authentic Greek Restaurant experiences on the Danforth.

Gross!! We ordered delivery via just eat and it ended up in the garbage. I had to go buy a real supper. the pork was dry as a bone. The tzatziki was basically pure garlic. Even the potatoes and rice were a fail. But worst of all was the doughy disgusting baklava. Never again Pan and after two fails with... More

I have never failed to enjoy the food OR atmosphere of the Danforth in Toronto. This visit was no exception. Though the decor was not classic white and blue, but darker and warm. Modern but soft music played (basouki didnt start till 8pm) yet it did not lack for appropriate feel or personality. The staff was welcoming and warm. Within... More

Dined at Pan during Winterlicious 2017. They squished way too many people into the restaurant and it was very uncomfortable. We felt rushed and were actually asked to leave before we had even been presented with our bill. It was quite clear that there were regulars who were treated more respectfully as well. The food was just OK. The belly... More

Group of four. 8.30 pm on a Saturday night. Plenty of fun atmosphere, live music, belly dancer??? Meals were al lovely and staff attentive. Fish in white sauce was the pick although the ouzo was very good too.

Staying in East End

Neighbourhood Profile
East End
The East End is an eclectic amalgamation of areas that team up to make this district one of the most multi-faceted and alluring. Home to Toronto's LGBT community hub, Gay Village is alive and pumping day or night with friendly bars, nightclubs, and cafes – its thumb is on the pulse of excitement. For a more relaxed day, the East End has the largest collection of restored Victorian homes, and its stately streets, tree-lined and bursting at the seams with affluence, often sport farmers markets and street artists, epitomized by the effusive St. Lawrence Market. One of the most gorgeous of Toronto's neighborhoods, it also straddles Lake Ontario in an area called The Beach, where you'll find folks cycling and strolling along the sandy shorelines, getting some sun or enjoying shopping, dining, and pub options. For some fabulous food, the vivacious personalities running the restaurants in the East End's Greektown is only equaled by the fun and authenticity of the street stalls and restaurants at its expansive Indian Bazaar. 'Something for everyone' has never been so accurate.
