... for the price. Part of a group of pubs in the downtown area, I have watched Sin grow from it's humble rotisserie roots to the fully Belgian-style pub it is today. Sin is in a fantastic location for a first date, or to get home from a night of too many quads. The food is good, rarely a disappointment.... More

We stopped in here after the AGO and left happy enough. The atmosphere at lunch is a mix of families and couples, no music playing and the lights were quite bright - so not a great atmosphere, I'd imagine it picks up at dinner time. The beer menu was outstanding - lots of great Belgium and German beers. The food... More

Not the greatest food, but good service. The beer choice is incredible, the place is run down, and super noisy

With a name like that – who could resist? Actually, we were dragged there by beer aficionado friends and were really impressed by not only the breadth of choice in libations but also the unusual items in the cellar. My find of the night was a Schofferhofer cider that I could drink all night (at 2.5% alcohol I literally could);... More

As most people I went with a friend after a visit at the AGO. Liked the atmosphere although colour choices of lime green and orange for chairs was interesting. Ordered schnitzel which I thought would be veal but was pork. It was inedible. The fries and peppercorn gravy were great, though. The server was terrible and when we told her... More

I've been here with friends for the celebration of my 30th birthday and the time was amazing. The place is very charming and quiet, perfect for talks and laughs. Waiters are very friendly. Food is very good. Beers, amazing. One of the best list of beers ever. Planning ahead to come here for a farewell before leaving Toronto.

Loved the name and looked it up on-line while doing a Google search for Belgian inspired food and muscles near the Art Gallery of Ontario. Very convenient location with three rooms of seating. We got there around 8:30 on a Friday night and the place was bursting at the seams - luckily we had a reservation. Don't plan on having... More

Went here on a Saturday afternoon with my wife while visiting Toronto. The atmosphere of pub was fantastically old world and the fries with cheese curds and gravy was a very satisfying snack. Our waiter had zero personality and was actually a downer and the only reason I'm giving 4 stars instead of 5.

We had the Sinner's burger and from the day menu a bison burger. Both were very good and the belgian frites, too. The first 2 beers I tried to order were not available so I went with a cider. The beer is a bit expensive for a german but it went a long was. Funny that the canadian is as... More

Staying in Chinatown

Neighbourhood Profile
Toronto's main Chinatown has the honor of being the largest in North America. Gaping down across Dundas Street West and Spadina Avenue, the area is a wonderful medley of shops and restaurants, busy signs and bright red gates, a destination for foodie fun. Chinatown's streets are always bustling, packed with people and outdoor stalls hawking fresh produce and products. The restaurants and authentic marketplaces that shoulder in against each other display shining roast ducks and menus studded with dumplings and noodle bowls. The air is pervaded with music. different languages, and the smell of fried food and mouth-watering desserts. Chinatown's restaurants represent a broad range of fare, from traditional Szechuan and Shanghai foods, to other Asian delicacies, including some of the top Japanese, Vietnamese, and Korean spots in the city. Whether you're in the mood for a sit-down tea house or a bubble tea to go, Chinatown is the spot to enjoy an exciting walk and the promise of leaving satisfied.
