The Octagon Restaurant

Reviewed By Natalie T - Richmond Hill

I’ve been coming here for years. It has old style great service. Waiters all dressed in suits. Coat check. The whole nine yards. Straight from the 70’s. The food is fantastic and always consistent. Great steaks. The best shrimp cocktail in the world. I have no idea where they get the shrimp but they are the biggest and the best I’ve ever eaten.

Tutto Bene

Reviewed By Sam J - Thornhill

Located in a small but lengthy strip mall but parking can be hard to obtain in peak periods. Very nice dining room ambiance. Our warm woolwich goat cheese salads came with ample salad, grilled vegetables goat's cheese and apples and tasted quite good. The bread in the basket that came with them was mostly dried out presumably from sitting uncovered for a long period of time before being served. A subsequent basket of bread came the same way.Our Mussels entree with seafood broth was good but nothing special. Our Rigatoni entree came with porcini and portobello mushrooms in a tomatoe sauce.. The dish looked good but unfortunately it wasn't served hot (temperature wise) and as a result was bland and lacked taste. Server was friendly but disappeared often for long periods of time.

Wimpy's Diner

Reviewed By GrantFamilyToronto - Toronto

Wimpy’s dinner is a little pricey, but the service is usually good and the food is excellent! Although service and food quality can differ from location to location in chain restraints, I like this location as the service and food are constantly very good.

Zen Japanese Restaurant

Zen Japanese Restaurant is aiming for the preservation of the traditional culture of Japanese cuisine, which gives the best impression of the cuisine to the patron while being loved by them.

Reviewed By rmwso - Toronto, Canada

After Reading a number of good reviews, we were looking forward to try the food at Zen. We tried Omakase sushi as well as Omakase sashimi and a few other items from the a la carte. Food was good but rather ordinary, and portions were small, we have had much better Japanese food in Toronto. Service was quick and good.

Terra Restaurant

Reviewed By Angie M - Toronto, Canada

Beautifully decorated restaurant. Friendly staff. And the gnocchi is out of this world. I will go back just for the gnocchi. We ordered several other dishes to also share, the branzino, grilled octopus, shrimp tacos, arugula salad, mozzarella and tomato salad. All the food was outstanding. This restaurant is pricey but is definitely a great pick for a special occasion.

Congee Queen

Reviewed By cctyu68 - Richmond Hill, Canada

Congee Queen has expanded its empire to cover over six different GTA locations. Of these, the Thornhill flagship store offers, in my opinion the best food. Apart from their famous rice congee products, other stand outs included some excellent Cantonese roasted meats and single-meal wok-hay dishes. Portions are generous. Pricing a bit higher than their competitors like Richmond Court. A more than acceptable destination for some quick, affordable and fairly good ' Canto-Chow '!

Asian Legend

Reviewed By GuiWong - Aurora, Canada

We celebrated the Year of the Rooster with dinner on Saturday night. We made Reservations and the table was ready for us at 6pm. Service was prompt and the dishes were excellent. We had dined previously at the Dundas Street Chinatown location and found both...MoreSo glad to hear about your positive Asian Legend experience. Looking forward to seeing you again soon!

Tomo Japanese Restaurant

Reviewed By StLiMi - Ottawa, Canada

This was our first time visiting Tomo Sushi, and we were blown away by the whole experience, atmosphere, and taste of the food. The decor was elegant, the booths comfortable, and the texture of the table tops was very nice. The service staff were superb, friendly and efficient. (I especially appreciated how they made the other two members of my family feel included in the meal, even though I was the only one eating/ordering food -- the other two had stuffed themselves silly with ice cream before hand :o) )
I had the sashimi lunch special LU05 (15 pieces- chef's choice, crunchy noodle soup (seafood broth, wheat noodles & tempura bits), rice & salad). I was amazed at the quantity of food! The soup was delicious. The rice and salad was served as a bento box with many extras we weren't expecting! Soooooo much food! Excellent value! The sashimi was some of the best I've ever had: very fresh, tender and delicious!

Santorini Mediterranean Cuisine

Reviewed By LindaJP4

This is one of our go-to restaurants for celebrations with family and friends and/or for a nice weekend dinner. The food is always perfectly cooked, especially the grilled calamari and fresh fish. The service is excellent. We are always warmly greeted by the family members who run this establishment. We are made to feel like family too. Ambience is great. We highly recommend Santorini for consistently excellent food and service.
