I went to have dinner with some friends and it was awesome! The staff was willing to help us choose and very efficient and fast and smiling! The food arrived quickly and it was incredible, best asian veggie food I've ever tasted, we had 3 different choises to share and all was really good. And it's cheap and big portions!... More

Eating at Jean's Vegetarian Kitchen has been a pleasure each and every time our family and/or friends have dined here. The food is fresh, well- prepared and consists of Thai ang Malaysian cuisines. My daughter's favourite is Radnar while I quite love the Chili and sweet flavours of the eggplant dish...there are 2 so careful which one you order! The... More

The people here are really nice, it's a good find. My friend who is not a vegetarian enjoyed her food here, and for myself who is a vegetarian, it's a good place to go when I want a big meal. I've had a few noodle type dishes here and have been consistently happy and have leftovers enough for one to... More

We love this place! Just went there today for dinner. We were there at around 6pm on a Sunday evening. Not too busy, maybe half full, but it was still early. Jean's is a very simple little place on the Danforth, at the less busy end of things. Everything is vegetarian/mostly vegan -- I think some dishes have eggs. They... More

We have been picking up from Jean's for about 3 years now...and it never disappoints! ( you can dine in FYI ) The service is amazing, and the food is so delicious that my carnivore friends request it when we entertain at our place. I would highly recommend Jean's!

Awesome. I am not a vegetarian by any means it I try to get to the restaurant at least once a year while visiting friends in Toronto. It is delicious and inexpensive.

Wow. Jean's is simply amazing. Yes, they specialize in vegan food; however, and this is a big however, even meat eaters will love this place. I am vegetarian, and was taken to Jean's by veggie friends, but I was so impressed I returned the next night with 2 meat eaters. They were leery, to say the least, but after some... More

I am still dreaming about the papaya salad. The Sweet and Sour Chicken (mock) was delicious. Seriously! How do they make mock chicken taste like that? This place is fantastic! The prices are low, the service is friendly and the food is just fantastic! I am not a vegetarian, but this food is so satisfying and delicious I didn't miss... More

We go to this great local vegan resto at least once a month. Son and family are vegan and if we don't feel like cooking, we head to Jean's. Pumpkin soup,taro rolls, vegetable baskets, mango salad for starters, then green curry with mock shrimp for me, Malaysian curry eggplant for son and daughter in law. The atmosphere is casual, very...

I have had the pleasure of going to Jean's Vegetarian Kitchen on many occasions. It is, without a doubt, the best vegetarian restaurant in Toronto. I would think Fresh (multiple locations) is likely the second best, but a distant second to this place. The food is EXCELLENT - I can't emphasize that enough. You will not go wrong in this... More

Staying in East York

Neighbourhood Profile
East York
East York includes a portion of old, industrial Toronto. Densely populated but incredibly safe, it boasts some of the city's earliest gardens and gardening clubs, attracting green thumbs everywhere. The tranquility of the Don Valley River area, which is rich with Toronto's oldest and tallest forests, is supplemented by the large ensemble of authentic and refurbished Edwardian homes, giving parts of East York allure. The other draw is for foodies: lovers of Bangladeshi fare will find authentic restaurants and markets in the area, with raw spices and desserts. East York also represents a lot of Toronto's Serbian food culture, and recently, has had an outcropping of solid microbrewery stops. For families, the science center is a favored weekend stop.
