Stumbled upon this gem of a restaurant and were pleasantly surprised. We are at the backyard patio that was roomy and inviting. The service and food was excellent and added to our perfect day in Toronto.

Casual, varied menu, good prices, outstanding service and quaint outdoor terrace in back made for a delightful time this past Sunday. My wife and I enjoyed the ambiance, the food was delicious and the service attentive and friendly.

Love their Khao Soy Gai (Laotian dish of noodles and chicken in an aromatic broth). Pad Thai is not outstanding (Salad King and Bangkok Garden do better) but OK. Canadian selection (steak, French toast, pasta) is good. People-watch is #1 (if you secure a table...More
