I went in twice, first time for a beer, second for dinner. Service is a bit slow if you only want a drink, but improved for dinner. Good selection of beers from around the world on draft. Spicy sausage and penne was good value.

We stopped here for lunch before heading to the art gallery. It was a rainy day so it wasn't very hot, but if it were a hot day I don't think I would have gone in. No air conditioning. Our food was standard pub fare....More

This restaurant has a large variety of upscale pub grub type food and is right across from the AGO. There are glass windows which open up which are very charming but when it's really hot you might be better off in an air conditioned spot.

This pub, located close to the Art Gallery of Ontario, is a good choice for lunch. The staff is friendly and the food, while not spectacular, is very good. We would recommend the soups, omelettes and salads. While we didn't have one, the burgers looked...More

Great selection and a true pub atmosphere. Love the open windows so you can people watch while you eat. Server was great and we ordered the grilled bacon and cheese, close to Chinatown without the hustle and bustle.

Thank canblueCanada
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
