I went there on the basis of Tripadvisor reviews, and wish I hadn't. The place was not particularly busy but the (simple) grilled squid main course took over 20 minutes to arrive. But it tasted good. My main of Nasi Goreng was really pretty horrible....More

I've been going to Mata Hari at least every second week for about 12 years. The food is awesome. Never had a bad meal. The mango chicken is fantastic, and their home made peanut sauce is the right mix of taste and spice. Summertime eating...More

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

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
