Haveli in Urdu and Hindi is equivalent of an old conservatively designed huge mansion of the countryside. The restaurant, described by some as an equal of Mardi Grass, came as a pleasant surprise. We were invited to a wedding ceremony. The food was so delicious and interior decor so reminding us of a typical Indian, Afghan, Pakistani village environment that we decided to pay a family visit to it in mid-December.
The service was excellent and waiters were very friendly. The restaurant seemed popular with almost all people.
What makes the restaurant special was its interior decoration with pieces of arts and crafts from all over India, Pakistan and Afghanistan. We felt at home after a long long time. Oh and our children - they could not relate.
Favorite Dish: Chicken Tikka (spicy chicken leg and breast on skewers), Chicken Karahi (chicken with curry), spinach with paneer (cheese) and various kinds of kababs including seekh kababs - yummy stuff. Go for traditional Lassi and Kulfi icecream.
Why would you like to dine out at Jack Astor's? For excellent service and entertainment of course. Yes, if you want to enjoy good food with sports bar environment than this is the place to be.

This is a busy restaurant, specially at the lunch time. It is a brick construction from both outside and inside. Each brick inside has an etched name by visitors. We were told that the owners invited all the visitors to write their names on the bricks at the time of the opening of the restaurant. The buffet, laid out over a large area is great.
Favorite Dish: Soups, fish, clams, muscles, quiche, fruites and last but not the least - icecreams.
Because of my poor writing skills on restaurant and cuisine, I am producing the following excerpt from Mississauga Community Guide 2007:
Cozy decor - burnished warmth of Mahogany and brass, deep rich colors and soft lamp lightening that calm your senses. Indulge in prompt, caring service and impeccably prepared food, whether you chose mouthwatering baby backribs, a tender steak or delicious fresh fish grilled ovr wood burning charcoal.
Favorite Dish: Try our picks:
Canyon Creek Dip
8 oz. prime rib mashed
14 oz. peppercorn
Canyon ribs, fries with gravy
Seared Halibut, mashed with gravy (Wow! this is mouth watering)
The prices below are for dinner, which is expensive than lunch.
Well it is double pleasure - seafood in Louisiana style. The service is not excellent, but the food is. There are 4 different types of seats. We would always like to get the ones in front of the big TV screens.
Favorite Dish: All of the following are delicious:
Blackened Catfish (this is our favourite, its is finger licking hot, spicy and tasty)
Jambalaya: This was extremely hot and spicy.
The 4 branches of Popeyes in Mississauga and Brampton are very popular because of Cajun spicy food that caters to the taste of all and sundry. The interior is decorated with Cajun art and quotes, because of which the restaurants appear very colorful and lively.
Popeyes are located at (1) Winston Churchill and Dundas in southwestern Mississauga, (2) Mississauga Heartland, (3) Hurontario Street south of Square One and (4) Hurontario and Steeles Avenue in Brampton.
Favorite Dish: Obviously Cajun chicken, biscuits, fries and butterfly shrimps.
The chain of Canadian family restaurants originally founded in 1954 in Toronto, Ontario, now has 190 restaurants in Canada and the United States. It is a division of Cara Operations, which also owns the hamburger chain Harvey's.
The name Swiss Chalet is taken from the design of its original restaurants, which featured exposed beam architecture, resembling a chalet one might find in the Swiss Alps.
(Excerpts from Wikipedia)
Favorite Dish: We like Swiss Chalet for its most famous item i.e. Quarter Chicken Dinner, featuring a leg (called dark meat) or breast piece (called white meat) of chicken with dipping sauce, a roll and a side dish of the customer's choice.
Swiss Chalet is best known for rotisserie chicken and mesquite-smoked barbequed ribs, which are traditionally served with sides of fresh-cut french fries, baked potatoes, salad, Caesar salad, Greek salad, coleslaw, rice, steamed vegetables, rotisserie vegetables, mashed potato, corn, or sauteed mushrooms (with garlic butter) and accompanied with Chalet Sauce, a tangy sauce that is somewhat similar to barbecue sauce, but without the smoke flavour.
(Excerpts from wikipedia)
You might think it silly to order chicken at a steakhouse, but this place makes the best fried chicken fingers you have ever tasted. They have a special recipe and a special dipping sauce that makes you want more. My wife got the Texas potato and soup and salad; a huge sour-creamed affair with a generous plate of greens and a bowl of vegetable soup. Add in the coffee and tip and it cost us about $20 for dinner: that is a good deal of food at a good deal less than I expected.
These restaurants are all over Canada and the U.S. They are heavy dark wood tables with big chairs and booths. The waiters and waitresses are all in teeshirts and jeans. The clientel are all in casual dress and there are plenty of families at dinner time. There is a bar section behind the belly-high wall separating the dinner area from the drinker area.
There wasn't any of the loud Texas music and the staff did not have a Texas accent and that made the experience all the better. The meals were served quickly and the waiter was friendly.
All in all, it was a good eating experience.
If you want to have a bit of the Irish stop in here for a great lunch.
A large choice of Irish foods, along with some Canadian in case you can't find what you are looking for.
Quaint little pub area and a large "elegant" looking dining area.
Quaint little place located in Port Credit. Don't blink because you will miss it.
Family run and very friendly, quick service and delicious food!!
And when you ask for hot.. you get HOT!
Favorite Dish: Pad Thai! Great portion for the price you pay!
Amazing food, wonderful service and the fact I like Greek is enough. My company loves this restaurant so much that we know the owners on a first name basis!
The restaurant is small but suprisingly will fit a large amount of people and in the summer they have a cute patio.
They have very traditional Greek food and some "Canadian" food just incase!
Favorite Dish: Spinach salad with raspberry vinegrette... feta cheese... walnuts... thinly sliced red onion... manadrin oranges.. oh yum.
Great now I'm hungry.
Diner decor; fast service; nothing fancy just good breakfast food.
We had coffee and eggs and side order of toast; my wife added in a corn roll to finish off.
The staff was courteous; the place was clean; we were hungry. We were satisfied when we left. The bill was reasonable.... something in the $10 U.S. range.
The Buffet Garden is a small buffet style asian restaurant on the QEW in Mississauga. The exterior is a simple store front, and the interior is equally uninspiring. The food was above average though, and I was impressed with the range of choice. The menu included Chinese usuals, and a bit of sushi. Now I will let you know, the suchi surprised me .... it was REALLY GOOD!!!
Waitstaff at buffets tend to forget to wait on the tables, but the staff here took time to check on us, clear our plates, and keep our liquids refreshed. Service alone makes this spot someplace I would return to if I'm in the area :)
I was surprised that my American travel companions had never, ever, had a Quizno's sub! These franchises are everywhere in my neck of the woods. But my friends live in a rural area and had never seen on outside of TV commercials. It was with this little sandwich place I was able to bribe them into a picnic on the lake ... I"m learning :)
Quizno's is a franchise chain deli that is known for their toasted sandwiches. The also serve low fat options, salads, soups and the usual deli desserts of brownies, cookies, and similar sugar filled items. Their style isn't traditional, nor is it eclectic. They just have tastey sandwiches wrapped in paper and stuck in a bag so I can take them to the place I want to lounge while munching. Simple, not overly prices, but not the cheapest either, Quizno's is an option for a meal on the run.
No matter what day of the week you go, there is always a lineup at Borrito Boyz..for good reason.
Vegetables are fresh, meat is cooked on a grill right before you, and the burrito is made for order.
Service is fast.
Everyone gets a number once they pay, then wait, follow the procession down the crammed room until your number is called, pick your toppings, wait some more as the meat is grilled, number is called again,grab your order, finally, devour it within minutes.
Favorite Dish: I always grab a small burrito as it's really a large, whereas the large is as large as my head.
Chicken Burrito is my favourite - with all the toppings they have available:
...soo good.. and weighs about a pound
