Food overpriced. Service slow. 1 1/2 hours before we had our meal. Fish overcooked. 1 out of 5 of us enjoyed their meal. No one seemed to care if we enjoyed our meal or not.

Wholesome well cooked food. Staff very attentive. Decor is old-fashioned and dark but clean. Good food at a very reasonable price.

The decor is frozen in time, several decades ago and the service was verging on surly. However, we enjoyed the food here and would return for the quality and value. A word of warning; the servings are large. We had an order of garlic bread...More

Situated astride Lake Ontario, Scarborough is a
district heavily influenced by immigration. With a
number of low-rent shopping and dining options making
it a highly affordable part of town, and boasting one
of Toronto's largest shopping malls, the otherwise
green suburban neighborhood is a good place to go for
bargains and discounts. It also draws in
photographers. The spires, archways, and cavernous
