Great selection of tasty food, but service needs major improvement. Felt like being ignored, had to ask multiple times for sriracha sauce to different waitresses in order to eat it with sushi. As I waited patiently, sriracha sauce finally arrived but by that time sushi was done >_>[Suruthiya Dhiyakamurthy]

Sushi is not as good. Although they give a lot of mixed korean and japanese appetizers with your meal. Open late but there are better places.[Aiza C]

Before visiting this restaurant, I was worried after reading the reviews about tipping. But the servers were really friendly and nice. Now I don’t understand the people complaining about tipping. When you ask them to give you water, utensils, plates etc that’s called SERVICE. When you ask them to give you side dishes which is not FREE, that’s aslo called SERVICE. And when you ask them for service in restaurant, you tip. That’s how it works in Canada. If you don’t want to tip for no reason or you can’t afford that couple of dollars as tip, Just cook by yourself at home, do take-out or even go to mcdonald’s. Then no one will force you to tip 🙂 I’ve been working as a server for 4 years but I’ve never seen this ridiculous people that tip 2% and saying “SERVERS FORCE ME TO TIP” Guys, that’s not even tip. Please behave. Jesus [ym j]

Amazing food! We had their stir-fried pork and vegetables #56 dish and fried rice. Their Korean kloud beer may be a new favorite, very similar to sapporo. Overall great food![E Z]

4. Magic Noodle

At Magic Noodle, they craft noodles with a delightful bounce and chew, all hand-pulled right there in the kitchen. These noodles take a dip in a flavorful clear broth, setting them apart from the typical Japanese ramen.

For an extra dose of magic, consider pairing your noodle bowl with some of their mouthwatering grilled snacks. It’s a truly enchanting experience for your taste buds!”

We came here last night hungry and looking for anything open. The food was very good we ordered the stir fry noodles and noodles soup. But we would say the stir fry was the best option very delicious with some beef steak. The only issue was the terrible service. I’m not sure if it’s always like this but they didn’t care much for taking our order and it was barely 11pm. And as our first time we were a bit confused if it’s open seating or order first the guy at the register wasn’t helpful in that department either. I spent most of our dinner going up to the register asking for utensils,napkins, straws etc . Just not a good place to have a good dine in experience.[Ashley ojeda]

Tried this place with three kids and we all loved it! Enough seating, interesting menu, great decor and super friendly staff! The food was wonderful, wish the real noodle making from scratch was more visible 👍 [Ina Flash]

I met up to try this restaurant as we were craving fried chicken on a cold winter night. The staff were really friendly and welcoming when I arrived.  They quickly showed me to my table and gave me water while I waited for my friends to arrive.

When my friends arrived, the wait staff came by and explained what were the most popular.  We started with our drinks where most of us ordered cocktails. Some had a Coronarita sticking out from the huge glass which made very good pics to post. They gave us some apps like coleslaw and radish.

We ordered the volcano chicken which was quite interesting with a variety of cheese and rose sauce. We added some potato wedges to the chicken. Despite my preference to dark meat, the chicken breast was tender. We also ordered kimchi fried rice and cheese soft egg roll.  I only had a little bite of the rice cuz I’m allergic to spicy food but my friends enjoyed it. I was looking forward to the egg roll and they did a really good job.

I would return for dinner or some late night snacks over some drinks.  Location is pretty good as it is close to Finch station. You can also find parking closeby either on the side streets or lots. [Victor Leung]

ate supper after raptors game, restaurant was pack at 11pm. Great operation hours as it’s open 24/7, had to wait around 15min. Ordered pork knuckle, kimchi fried pork intestines and seafood tofu soup. First for some reason they had removed table side bbq and just throw you the dish with iron plate that turn us down a lot. And the pork intestines come out tasting burn and bitter. Pork knuckle and tofu soup was alright, overall I can say this resto is a 24/7 Korean fast food place with low standard food. Can go if you were craving at midnight [Billy So]

Amazing food, great quality at a good price with great service. Would definitely come back. [Yuval Olsha (Dvlce)]

7. Miss Fu In Chengdu

Meet Li, the brains behind the magic at Miss Fu in Chengdu. Hailing from Chengdu himself, Li’s culinary journey started in his childhood, where his mom would whip up delightful, authentic chili sauce, a variety of skewers, and the showstopper – Sichuan-flavored red oil with a mesmerizing color and top-notch appearance. These flavors etched a lasting impression on Li’s childhood.

Post-college, Li took a flavorful plunge by opening his maiden restaurant north york, a culinary ode to his mother’s recipes. The restaurant, named “Miss Fu” after his mother (whose last name is Fu), pays homage to her culinary finesse. Fast forward, and the Miss Fu family has blossomed to over 60 locations globally, with two charming spots in Toronto – one nestled in downtown Toronto and the other gracing North York. The legacy of authentic tastes and familial love continues to spread its wings!

3.5 stars.  Was looking for something to warm me up this evening and remembered there was a pho place nearby.  I walked by and saw their “Soft Opening” sign and thought why not…  the shop is not super big but average size for the area.  There are some bench seats on one wall to accommodate larger parties and smaller 2, 4 or the large round 8 top tables available.

The menu is quite interesting as you select your soup spice level (I chose the medium which at first was ok but the heat is a slow burn and builds up. To the dry spice which i will need to try next round I am in the area.

The items are all ala cart and priced from 50 cents/ skewer to 1.99 for the 2 shrimps.  The selection is quite extensive but again per skewer and can easily add up quickly if you can put down a decent amount.

I also tried a noodle that the name eludes me but it was a stewed pork with chickpeas over a bed of noodles that was quite yum!

There is also a small selection of desserts that I had to unfortunately pass on as I was beyond stuffed.

The service was ok, given today was surprisingly their first day of operations.

Will definitely give the dry spice a try next round and save room for dessert.[Alex Chan]

Great food and ambience and very friendly staff. The su-rou chicken (crispy chicken with spicy powder on it) was amazing. The place doesnt have alcohol but the su rou would be pefect food to have with a beer on a game night at home! [U M ]

Really enjoyed the Braised Beef Brisket with hand pulled noodles! The portion was very generous and packaged well for takeout. The noodles were some of the best hand pulled noodles I’ve had, while the beef was very satisfying texture wise and delicious. The vegetables were fresh and plenty. And the spice was the perfect addition to the entirety of the dish. [Luka Neskovic]

Great food and has a feel of a good ol home cooked meal. Wish they would also expand their menu to include dumplings [Lawrence Chung]

Amazing place, hands down a gem of a restaurant. Food was spectacular, we had the leek soup (soup du jour) and escargot to start. The waiter was very attentive and paid great detail to placing the dishes with minimal splashing (soup).. small detail but greatly appreciated. The mains were the grouper and the veal tenderloin, very tasty as well. I’d come back for the soup and grouper for sure. Price was also extremely reasonable for the quality of food and service. [Crystal Law ]

I just love this place so much… the best French restaurant in the area. Cozy and classic with French inspired decorations. The food is the best with some amazing vegetarian options like this Creamy Pasta dish that’s straight from heaven. Service is awesome as well. Always recommend this place. Great for dates or any time really. [Elizabeth Mohajer]
