King Palace (Pakistani/Indian Eatery @ Richmond/Sherbourne) - New Location?!?

  • 4

Saw a sign up at a closed down donut shop for King Palace - opening soon, along Church Street, north of Bloor, just as it bends to cross Yonge and turn into Dupont. It's really close to the Canadian Tire.

That donut shop, located beside a hand car wash, was just terrible. The only thing I liked about it, is that it had one of those old school donut shop signs! Anyway, now there is a sign up for a King Palace (Pakistani/Indian food) opening soon.

Does anyone know if this is related to the King Palace at Richmond/Sherbourne? If so, I can't wait because I work around Yonge and Bloor!

  1. no way! i'm not in the area much but one time i saw some activity i thought they were expanding into the front part where the empty "ice cream stand" part of the gas station is. It would make more sense for them to move.
    we got take out one time after reading how good it was but it wasn't worth repeating. Not so much about taste as much as it's about lack of freshness. the food just sat out all day.

      I didn't get the fuss about this place either. Sure, open late, but the food wasn't great at all. I reckon you could go 'eenie meenie miny moe' at Gerrard and Coxwell and get better food almost every time.

    2. Oh great so they moved from one gas station to another gas station. Here's the reason why I never went even though it's walking distance from home and I read all the raves here:

        Sounds like pretty minor violations to me.
