Reasonably priced restaurant serving lamb? (Not Mezes)


I am looking for a restaurant that is reasonably priced (ie. entrees around 20-24$) that serves lamb chops.

Also, this cannot be Mezes on Danforth.

I am trying to appease a finicky father and a picky mother as well us myself and my partner that will eat anything and love new foods.

Any suggestions would be great!

  1. I've always liked the lamb at Cafe Pleiade on Mt Pleasant. Unfortunately I don't like Summerlicious - they're part of that too - and lamb chops are one of the items offered on their Summerlicious menu.

      If you want the Danforth, Pantheon is reasonable, and gives you a large portion of first cut chops, at a reasonable price.

        2nd pantheon. the lamb is my favorite. very tender, ask for it medium rare.

    2. Me Va Me at Bathurst & Steeles serves some tasty lamb chops as well as lamb kebabs for a very reasonable price. Food is mediterranean in nature - the portions are generous and there's a variety of salads and appetizers to try something new.

      I would also highly recommend Bisseli at Dufferin and Centre (north of Steeles) in Thornhill. It's a more casual environment but I find it to be superior quality to the others in the area - including Me Va Me.

        I second the lamb at Me Va Me. For $15 they gave 4 or 5 thick lamb chops and I almost couldn't finish it. Nicely seasoned and grilled too, done to my liking. I have to go back to try more stuff.

      2. Djerba la Douce (Danforth and Coxwell) is excellent, and serves lamb dishes for way under your budget. A quick search will get you a bunch of positive reviews from this board.

        1. Le Paradis makes a fabulous Lamb shank (I know it's not chops but it's fab) and I think it's under $20.
          IMO it's the one thing on the menu that is consistently good!
