Czech or Slovak food in Toronto

Does anyone know a place serving good Slovak or Czech food is in the GTA?

    1. It's not exactly Czech, but there are a couple of very decent Polish, if somewhat old school, restaurants on Roncesvalles Avenue. I had excellent dumplings at 'Chopin'.
      If you're ready for an adventure I can recommend 'Intersteer' at the top end of Roncies. It's a dive bar more than a restaurant, but they sell huge bottles of ice old Polish beer, have a pool table in the back and on request will ply you with home made cabbage soup and Polish sausages served with a mustard hot enough to a: blow your head off and b: sober you up again in an instant.

      Great blues on the jukebox too.

        1. Andreas, to a Czech, "Polish beer" is a bit like "Alberta lobster."

          There is also Bistro Praha: http://www.toronto.com/restaurants/li...

            I heard Bistro Praha has been closed for about a year now.

              Oops. I guess I'll never get to czech it out now.

              And what's wrong with Alberta lobster? Huh? Huh?

              On second thought, you're right of course. I had forgotten about the Czech affinity with Pilsener. Sorry about that.

            3. Prague Restaurant on Queen Street West is great. They have a hearty "Czech Break" that's delish.
