Not sure if this place is called District Oven or District Social - GPS gives District Social, as does the sign at the place, but "District Oven" here on Trip Advisor. Anyway, 842 College St. is the address. We were here with a large group...More

Fun place for a group -- order a few different dishes and share them around. While some things are as expected -- felafel is felafel -- most of the dishes combine middle-eastern ingredients with the chef's (or owner's) creativity. Even the drinks add a "mediterranean"...More

Fantastic mezze plates. Fresh ingredients, distinct flavours and friendly staff. The garlic sauce had the tang we like, the chicken skewers were burnt just enough, and the desserts were melt-in-the-mouth! We'll be back!

My parents and I went to District Oven for Winterlicious and were disappointed. Nothing was bad, but nothing was particularly good either. For being a Middle Eastern restaurant with such good reviews, I expected lots of flavour in every dish. Flavour was distinctly lacking across...More

At the heart of Toronto, Downtown is the destination
for cheap eats and fast fashion. Cut through by hip
and trendy Yonge Street, the vibe here is young, with
a strong student influence from the Ryerson University
Campus. As a result, the Downtown area is always in
flux: undergoing the construction of new facilities,
with fresh retail spaces and pop-up cafes. Home to
Toronto's largest indoor shopping mall, a number of
