Had some really delicious Banh Mi here. I saw it on a TV show and needed to check it out, the pork belly banh mi was awesome and so were the kim chi fries and i don't even like kim chi. Was pretty busy on a thursday around 6-7PM but that's to be expected for a small fast dining restaurant.... More

The food here is fun and delicious, and a good price. I like how you can make the food extra spicy if you want. We really enjoyed the kimchi fries 🍟 give them a go!

I don't know if this is Korean, Vietnamese or Chinese food, but whatever it is, it's great. I always get the 5 spice pork belly bao (soft bun) and the kimchi pulled pork fries. They're some weird food combinations but they taste great. Only seating for maybe 15-20 people, so get takeout, get there before noon to avoid long lines.

Fried chicken is so tender and juicy, club bao is a popular secret menu and my favorite. Their cream orange soda is really old-fashioned, every time I try it, my memory goes back to childhood.

I recommend this if you love food. this place makes an amazing sandwiches everything in the sandwich what I saw was all fresh salad or fresh vegetables and the sandwiches. The staff are very helpful and very friendly and the price of the food is not expensive at all.

Even at 2 pm the lunch lineup never stops! The food at Banh Mi Boys has never disappointed: kalbi, grilled chicken, braised/pulled pork or beef, fish or even squid on taco, Banh or bao with kimchee. Spiciness can be specified, as well as cilantro. We like the tofu fries, which is like Asian poutine except with kimchee and mayo instead... More

This little spot was the most delicious place to eat in Toronto. It was a little hard to find with all the shops around it but once I did there was no turning back. Their menu isn't too big to choose from but everything sounds so good it's still hard to choose what you want. If you've never had banh... More

I enjoyed this restaurant - Having never had a Banh Mi sandwich before, I was definitely impressed. The first time I went I had the pork banh mi which was good. The next time I went, I had the 5-spice pork belly - well done and extra hot - which was great! You must try the Kimchi Fries!

I've been wanting to go here for a while because I love banh mii, but after spending a month in Vietnam last year frankly I was afraid of being disappointed! I ordered a meatball Banh Mi and was blown away - a delicious, filling meal for only $7! I will definitely be back :)

Our son took us to this place after we were out shopping and needed a break for a late afternoon snack. Turns out that this place serves some of the most delicious sandwiches in Toronto at a relatively inexpensive price. We tried the chicken, beef and pork belly sandwiches. They were filled with juicy meat and topped with their special... More

Staying in Chinatown

Neighbourhood Profile
Chinatown
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 that shoulder in against each other display shining roast ducks and menus studded with dumplings and noodle bowls. The air is pervaded with music. different languages, and the smell of fried food and mouth-watering desserts. Chinatown's restaurants represent a broad range of fare, from traditional Szechuan and Shanghai foods, to other Asian delicacies, including some of the top Japanese, Vietnamese, and Korean spots in the city. Whether you're in the mood for a sit-down tea house or a bubble tea to go, Chinatown is the spot to enjoy an exciting walk and the promise of leaving satisfied.
