NYC hound need rec in North York

Staying at the Radisson and looking for a good place to go. I'll be solo and have no preference on cuisine

  1. You should try Sri Lankan at the Hopper Hut. Pretty authentic stuff, and not too expensive. Kennedy/Ellesmere area in Scarborough.

    Hopper Hut
    880 Ellesmere Rd, Toronto, ON M1P2W6, CA

    1. if you're along the subway line, Yonge/Finch area has some amazing Korean cuisine. My favourite is Nakwon (SW corner of Yonge/Finch). Just discovered Lim Ga Ne (south of the Esso gas station). If you go further south (west side of yonge), you can find "The Party Restaurant" that sells Kimbab (korean fuki), get the spicy tuna if u're there.

      There are some pretty good persian restaurants in the same area. enjoy :)

      1. re: oohlala

        I can't find a listing or exact address for Nakwon. But there is a Neagohyang Korean Restaurant at 5582 Yonge, which is the SW corner of Yonge & Finch. Could this be an alternative spelling of the name?

        1. re: JamieK

          No, Nakwon is at 5594 Yonge (probably next door to the one you are referring to). I couldn't find a direct link to Nakwon, but it is referred to in certain searches with this address.
          I have been to Nakwon and it was good.

          1. re: pescatarian

            Nakwon's phone number is 416-590-1435. It's at the SW corner of Yonge/Finch. For grills, I actually like Harubang Korean Restaurant south side of Nakwon. Harubang's phone number is 416-225-0904.

      2. Radisson in North York... I'm guessing it's the one near the Sheppard and Victoria Park.
        In that case, a good Japanese place I can recommend is Aoyama, one block north of Sheppard on Victoria Park. It's a tiny place with a pretty small menu, but the food is well-prepared and service is great :)

        I also second oohlala's recommendation for Nakwon. Great korean food.

        1. I could recommend

          900 Don Mills Road (Lawrence & Don Mills
          )Tel: 416-449-8228

          It's nice new buffet place featuring a gigantic grill. The dinner price is $19.99 for adult over the weekdays.

          1. For good quality Chinese food (both northern style eats and southern style dishes) with reasonable price, I would recommend:

            Asian Legend
            5186 Yonge Street
            North York, ON
            (416) 221-9797
