    Definitely search this board as there have been many similar threads in the past.

    For good wings, go to Arizona on Carlingview http://www.arizonabarandgrill.com/
    It's better than most downtown wing pubs.

    For Indian, go to Kwality on Steeles (about 6 km north of the airport area).

    Lykn Chicken is good for take-out but stick to the chicken. http://www.lyknchicken.com/

      There are a bunch of Hakka (Indian/Chinese) places just north of the airport at Airport Rd and Derry Rd...the one that I've enjoyed most is Lin Garden on Derry just west of Airport...interesting food and quite non-greasy....worth a try...

        Grand for dim sum, absolutely, one of the best in the city. For your 24-hour diner needs, Zet's is a good bet. I just had a great chicken souvlaki plate there.

            My fav by far is Lykin Chicken. Here is a recent thread about them which includes their website and address.

              good luck to you. there's a whole lot of nothing up there.
              i worked there for 2 years.
              there are lots of threads about restos on or near Airport Rd. take a peek.

              but otherwise, the only good places would be Brar Sweets (10 min away) - veggie indian that is incredibly tasty. um..otherwise, there is NOTHING great.

                There is the most amazing gem with wonderful roti's in a West Indian Grocery store around the Value Villiage. It's near Woodbine Downs Blvd and Hwy 7. I remember there was a coffee Time in the same complex. I just tried finding out where it is for the last half an hour (sorry I have a brain fart right now). 2 ladies in a small kitchen doing up the tastiest dishes ever. Sorry not much help.
