Hakka Kitchen - anyone been?

Investigating a Hakka (Indian/Chinese) place to go for a weekday work lunch. Searched on here and found a few topics that mention many restaurants but Hakka Kitchen at 229 Rexdale Blvd was not one of them. Wondering if anyone has comments about this place?

I'm looking for a Hakka restaurant that is not too far a drive from the Langstaff & 400 area (i think 20min-ish one way would be alright, but def. under 30min). if anyone has suggestions, i'd appreciate it. I'm not very familiar with this area of town, and esp with traffic, am not sure if some of the other places in the west end will be too far during weekday lunchtime.

      1. Have not been to Hakka Kitchen
        But I have been to Bombay Chopsticks at Finch/Albion many times. Service was attentive and quick, place was very clean - food very flavourful.
        I've had the chilli chicken and a few of the manchurian dishes. All very tasty.

          Yes, Bombay Chopsticks on Albion is very good and incredibly clean, actually attached to the Beer store! The food tends to be more Chinese though and less spicy than the norm!

          1. Hakka style restaurants are certainly on the increase. There are 2 I wish to try, one on Rexdale Blvd. near Martingrove/Kipling, the other in the former Thai restaurant on Finch West about midway between Islington and weston rd. I did recently have a lunch of very nice Chili chicken at a restaurant on gore road north of Hwy 7 in a largely Indian plaza. Well, sorry, no names for these mentioned establishments, will make notes for them in future days!
