Hey I'm just wondering if anyone can make any good suggestions that are fairly inexpensive, nothing fancy, but fairly close by to the Eatons Center. I'm not a traveler, I live here in Toronto, but I am always looking for some new suggestions. Thanks!!

  1. Salad King 335 yonge (but entrance on Gould). Expect a line-up.

    1. Terroni on Victoria is not super pricey, Sen5es at Queen & Yonge from 8-6pm, great lunch combo's under $13...

      Salad King is great - I think you can make a resy...not sure. Or, you can order takeout (preorder though)

      They did open a Spring Rolls on Dundas and Yonge as well a while back.

        Where exactly is the Sen5es at Queen and Yonge?

        I've tried the Spring Rolls at Dundas/Yonge (Atrium on Bay) twice and was not impressed either time. The food was not very tasty and the pad thai was probably one of the worst I've had.
        Others will probably disagree as the place is always really busy.

          The Sen5es is on the NE corner of Yonge & Queen, in the same building as the TTC station.

            completely and totally agree. although i think it would be more tolerable if they went easier on the sauces...

              Agreed on the badness that is Spring Rolls. Avoid at all costs. I've been dragged repeatedly to the Pickle Barrel in the Atrium and again, it's no so horrible if you stick to the basics but the money is better spent on restauarants or smaller places that actually focus on making a few things good rather than having a large chain menu.

                You're right about Spring Rolls. Flavourless crap.

                Salad King is real good in my opinion. I was just there and had the Pad Thai and Green Curry chicken. Mmmmmm....

            2. Check out this thread, since the hotel is close by...


              1. I have been to Spring rolls a few times, not bad, but not great (but what can you expect from a chain?). What kind of food is Sen5es?

                1. Sen5es is in teh Bank of Montreal building (northeast corner of Y & Q)

                  They serve mainly soups, salads and sandwiches but they are very, VERY good.
