The food is great. The piri piri burger is yummy. Staff is friendly. The penne pollo is also delicious. Has a great selection of beers. We love going to this pub.

I went in twice, first time for a beer, second for dinner. Service is a bit slow if you only want a drink, but improved for dinner. Good selection of beers from around the world on draft. Spicy sausage and penne was good value.

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
