Ordered Nasi limak, satay and nasi goreng and should say it wasn't as authentic as I've had better ones before. Add ins were missing. Satay peanut sauce wasn't near my expectations. Nasi limak rice lacked the coconut milk flavour and was more of just sticky rice

Went with family and friends for dinner. Place is not very big, maximum 50 seating. While the food itself is very good and delicious, the service is not. Used plates were not cleared, the waiter seemed a bit overwhelmed. But the food is great- especially the Spicy Grilled fish on banana leaf and the Goat Rendang, which were outstanding. The... More

Just terrible. I used to visit this place even before they were in their current location. They used to be fantastic. I had an issue years ago with a baby cockroach on my plate and the owner denied it. Crushed it with her fingernail and claimed it was nothing. I was so grossed out. Years passed and thought OK I...

Having spent a long time in Malaysia, Singapore and Indonesia I was really excited to find this spot in the GTA. Food wa fantastic. Authentic Laksas, Char Kway Teow, Popiah and more! Ordinary setting but solid service. Definitely a hot spot for GTA foodies looking for something new and extraordinary

Good Malaysian / Singapore cuisine. Tried Nasi lemak and Sticky rice Durian dessert. Really good. Only complaint is the service is a bit slow and they tend to forget that you are there after a while.

My family needed some take away food. We had settled on a place but found it no longer existed. We drove around the block and settled on Lion City. It's always a cap shoot picking restaurants as you drive by. This was a winner we enjoyed every dish except the curry brisket. It took 20 minutes to prepare our order.... More

This is a good place for food from Singapore and Malaysia. The food is very tasty. I tried it first with friends from work and keep coming back.

For a very cosmopolitan city, Toronto has some peculiar omissions. One of those is Malaysian cuisine, and specifically the Singaporean variety. In Vancouver, there are quite a number to choose from.But here - in the country's largest city - there are very few and, as far as I know, Lion City is the only specifically Singaporean restaurant. We live in... More

We have eaten at this restaurant many times and actually enjoyed the food but today was a disappointment. We ordered Char Kueh Tiau and Lo mein and my wife and I agreed there was something different. The food did not taste like they did in previous visits. Service was poor too which was not the case. When I was paying... More
