It's a chain, the food's good, the atmosphere is kitschy, it's all good. Good place to get a beer and watch the game. The curry poutine is very good.

Thanks for the review! The Butter Chicken Poutine is an excellent choice. Try it with sweet potato fries next time, if you're feeling adventurous. Cheers, Sarah EC King St
