Lunch at Yonge & Eglinton

  • t

Taking a good friend for lunch on Friday. We are meeting at Yonge & Eglinton. Any suggestions for a nice restaurant where 2 old friends can eat good food and catch up on old times? We like all foods. The cost is not an issue. I need your expert advice chowhounds!

      I have to agree that this is an excellent place for yummy dim sum and has a cozy atmosphere. They also have excellent service. They have their own website with pictures and menu. The ws address escapes me...

    2. Sushi Kai 5 minutes from yonge and eglinton. You can sit for hours. best spider rolls in TO.

      1. If you can, take a leisurely stroll over to Eg and Mt Pleasant for Churassco Chicken. Northwest corner. Perfect chicken. Aside from the roast potatoes, their sides are way pedestrian and don't deserve to be on the same plate as the chicken.

        1. I too recommend Cha Liu. It's a bit hard to find as it is located on the second floor. Hoever, the food is worth the search. Very good dim sum without as much oil as some of the places in Chinatown. Very attentive and nice service. Give it a try.


          1. More expensive than the previous suggestions but-
            Stork On The Roof - east side of Yonge 2 blocks north of Davisville. Continental food with a Dutch/Indonesian twist.
