Have been eating here once a week lately for business. I typically order the Chicken Pad Thai. The absolute best. The service we have is impeccable. Our waiter remembers everything from our drinks to hoe much lemon I like. Highly recommend

Pleasantly surprised with this restaurant. Appetizer chimichurri mussels were a large portion and very good. Half order of salad was sufficient as an appetizer for my spouse. Pad Thai and Cod were both very good.

Very nice hotel restaurant. The menu was broad enough and very well done. They were flexible with preparing food off-menu. Everything tasted great. The fresh rolls were delicious. Recommend the new york strip steak.

At the heart of Toronto, Downtown is the destination
for cheap eats and fast fashion. Cut through by hip
and trendy Yonge Street, the vibe here is young, with
a strong student influence from the Ryerson University
Campus. As a result, the Downtown area is always in
flux: undergoing the construction of new facilities,
with fresh retail spaces and pop-up cafes. Home to
