Restaurants & Nightlife, Toronto
SPRING ROLLS Restaurants - you now see them all over downtown Toronto. Yonge, Front, Dundas and now Queen West. This restaurant is constantly busy and very popular with tourists, 905ers and some locals?!?!? LEt them keep their substandard fare, hop the streetcar and go to Chinatown for the real deal. There are far too many superior Asian Choices to patronize this western friendly fake.
Unique Suggestions: dont go. suggest alternative.
Fun Alternatives: See any of my other restaurant tips..far tastier and the real deal.
Welcome to tourist trap hell!!! These two streets are lined with over priced restaurants with terrible food. DO NOT GO!!! Instead, try going to Little Italy, the Annex, Greektown, or almost anywhere else!!!!
Unique Suggestions: Just don't do it!!!!
one word.... overpriced!
Unique Suggestions: go to sit by the hard rock windows (they overlook the skydome interior)
Fun Alternatives: they say that there is enough restaurants downtown for someone to eat in a different place every night of the year and all are unique, why spend your money on overpriced burgers and chips?
These restaurants are the same everywhere. If you've been to one you've been to them all. Don't waste your time on this one.
Unique Suggestions: The chicken breaded with CapN Crunch cereal is a novel thing to try once.
Fun Alternatives: Try one of Toronto's great local restaurants instead.
Features Cafe is located on the lobby level of the Holiday Inn on King. It has bad, overpriced food and horrendous service. The only reason it stays in business is that tourists don't know there are better places to eat nearby.
Unique Suggestions: If the food and/or service you receive is bad, complain to the Holiday Inn on King. The management of the cafe don't care whether you're happy or not as long as they have your $$$, but if the hotel gets enough complaints it could force things to improve one way or another.
Fun Alternatives: There is a food court on the concourse level of the MetroCentre across the street.
At Peter & Adelaide is a place with great food, called Zupa's.
If you don't mind going a little further afield, Stem Restaurant on Queen St. W. is terrific.
Avoidthe Hard Rock Cafe...no matter where you go in the world, they are all the same...bad food, loud music, poor service...too many american tourists (no offence)
