WE used to always go here for my birthday meal. This year we did takeout. Delicious and plentiful food. very reasonably priced. So very enjoyable! Totally made for an awesome and fantastic birthday dinner with lots of leftovers

King's makes a lot of their own meat-substitute foods and you can also buy them to take home from the freezer. I can never decide what to order when I come by myself, but two dishes is far too much for one person. However, when...I am eating there with friends, we all order different items and the table becomes a study in colours and textures!More

I bought a variety of meat substitutes (springrolls, skewers, "calamar" rings, etc.) on a busy summer Sunday afternoon to eat them in the nearby park with a friend. The food was really good, and the substitution very convincing, I could not have guessed it was...not meat if I didn't know it! If you are vegetarian or vegan but still love meat's taste, then you have to try this.More

When we are in Toronto, King's Cafe is a must-do for lunch. The food is absolutely excellent all the time. We had the hot and sour soup, spring rolls, vegetable tempura and crispy soy fritters. There is no way I can tell you which I...liked the best because they were all #1. One thing I can say about the tempura is that the batter is light and perfectly cooked. It's just ALL good at King's Cafe and my husband and I would love to see them come to Ottawa!More

Wow, that was a surprise! The restaurant looks a bit simple from the street but once you get inside it's great. The staff are very kind. The food was excellent - many vegetarian dishes, diverse, from noodles, to sushi, etc. We took some kind of...udon soop that was so tasty that we couldn't take our hands from it. Do yourself a favor and make sure that you go there to tasteMore

Quiet, calm, friendly and very efficient staff catered to our diverse menu choices. The food was delicious — tightly-rolled sushi, spicy and fresh kung-pao TVP, amazing sweet and sour burdock, tasty spring rolls, great dumplings and noodles. We will DEFINITELY be back!

A little bit away from busy Spadina ave you find this simple and very small vegan chinese restaurant. Many options on the menu. Tasty mushroom dishes. Friendly service and reasonable prices.

King's Cafe has amazing food and many options. Even non-vegetarians will go there, which is not usually the case with most veg restaurants! Their portions are quite generous and it always makes for great leftovers. The only aspect that needs improvement is their service. There...are times when the service is great and others with it is mediocre at best. Suffice it to say, the food is so good that it is always worth the gamble! And don't leave without having their sticky rice wrap!More

Friendly staff that recognize and chat with us :) Wifi .. unsure, didn' bother as we were too happy eating Baby Change tables ..? definitely needed in both upstairs washrooms (my only reason for not giving 5* review) Parking .. Easy Green P 071 municipal...parking right behind the restaurant (enter from College street to Bellevue ave south) Vegan ... YES, most options vegan 90%. They could easily make their place 100% vegan by getting rid of that dairy milkshake stuff in place of almond milk. Not sure why didn't do that yet Anyways, the Sweet and Sour Lappa, delicious The Black Bean green veggie dish, always good *hint, ask for some chilli sauce GROCERY / Take away .. wow, nice selection for your home freezerMore

At the heart of Toronto, Downtown is the destination
