Toronto Restaurant Recommendations

Hi All,

I'll be heading to Toronto next week.

Looking for restaurant recommendations, specifically Japanese, Chinese, and Vietnamese cuisine. But I'm up for anything else that's stellar.

I'm not picky about decor - so it can be something fancy or just a hole-in-the-wall. The food just has to be GOOD.

Thanks in advance!

    Okay, I'm going to take a stab at a couple of Japanese suggestions with the caveat that I haven't been to these places (yet) but I trust the opinions of the posters on the following threads. Others will surely pipe in.

    Here's a review of Kon-Nichi-Wa

    Here's a review titled "Best Japanese meal of my life" for Kaiseki Sakura

    556 Church St, Toronto, ON M4Y2E3, CA

    31 Baldwin St, Toronto, ON M5T, CA

      Probably you miss that, but actually the second half of the thread "Best Japanese meal of my life" is for Hashimoto which serves authentic traditional kyo-kaiseki other than the french influenced kaiseki at Sakura.

        Ah, good point! Rampup, if you're willing to travel a bit, here's another good suggestion. Please do let us know where you end up and how it went!

        Kaiseki Yu-Zen Hashimoto
        6435 Dixie Rd, Mississauga, ON L5T, CA

          Agree with the above suggestions for Japanese. Again, if you're willing to travel, why not take the 404 up to Hwy7 in Richmond Hill and have yourself a great Chinese seafood dinner at O'Mei. The drive is similar in duration to that of Hashimoto in Mississauga. I'm unsure where you are from. But if you reside within North America, you'll be hard press to find a restaurant that serves better Chinese style seafood than O'Mei.

            Charles any recommendations on what to order at O'Mei? I've read a recent thread about ordering the Lobster dinner. Anything else...especially if I dine for just myself. TIA.
