We went on a busy Saturday evening and were able to get a table for five within 15 minutes. The owner and staff are very friendly. We ordered a vegetarian platter and some meat dishes. This was my second tasting of Ethiopian food. My cousin forgot to tell them to separate the meat and vegetarian so it can together in... More

Loved this Ethiopian and Eritrean Restaurant. We had the Vegetarian Sampling Platter and it was tasty and filling. The Waitress was attentive and friendly. Interesting decor and pictures for sale. Highly recommend

Rendez-vous (1400 Danforth) is very different from the restaurants i've been to. This one, we eat with our hands and eat wrap the meat/veggies/sauce with the injera (sourdough bread). There are several... More

Rendezvous is located east of the popular Greektown Danforth strip in an area where lower rents enable modest independent resraurants to flourish. This comfy neighbourhood eatery caters to both Ethiopian expats and a growing coterie of people from other cultures who have come to appreciate the pleasures of ethiopian cuisine. Ethiopian dining is a communal experience where the food is... More

We had dinner here last evening. The food is really very good and the prices very reasonable. My ONE problem with this place is the service. They don't have enough of staff so it takes a very long time before you get served. The staff are very nice and friendly but OVER WORKED so they cannot cope. The decor is... More

Ethiopian restaurants are fast becoming staples along Bloor West and the Danforth. This place makes the best injera--great texture, just slightly acidic. The vegie platter for one really feeds two! And the management do not complain if you order it to share.

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.
