The dining patio was lovely, and we had a nice evening. Staff was friendly, even found water for diners who tied up their dogs on the outside of the patio fence. The neighborhood is funky and fun, and we also enjoyed walking through nearby Chinatown....More

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
