Suggestions for cheap sit-down dinner on Sunday around Parliament/Adelaide

Looking for a cheap spot for a group of 6 to sit down and have a meal. Cheap because it will be filled with starving actor types. I'd take them to Sukhothai if it was open Sundays, but it's not. Would prefer to not have to go to Betty's or any other bar. All the other restaurants I can think of in that area seem a bit pricy.

  1. Sunday's are tough at that intersection. Most places service the business crowd (yes, we have one) and so are closed Sunday.

    You could work out a fixed price dinner for your students at Mengrai Thai. They've been known to do that. Ontario & Richmond

    Coming soon, as you may recall, is Souvlaki Express. They're not quite there yet, but it's close. Parliament & Queen.

    82 Ontario Street, Toronto, ON M5A 2V3, CA

    Souvlaki Express
    745 Mount Pleasant Rd, Toronto, ON M4S2N4, CA

    1. Thanks for the suggestions!

      1. What s the budget before taxes, tip?

            how far away will go , assuming on the Danforth subway line?

              There's a time-dependent factor as everyone has to eat and then run to a theatre, so we can't do any really far-away places. I think one of them has a car, but I can't be sure it's going to be available that day.

        1. You can get a $15 pizza at Magic Oven at Parliament & Queen. MO gets a lot of hate on this board, but its open Sunday night.

            There's a thought, it's not the worst pizza in Toronto, and pizza is filling...

          2. Harlem is on Richmond between Church and Jarvis. Very hearty soul food. It is on the upper end of your budget, but good value for the quality and quantity and open Sunday.

              Oh that does look good. I will put it past the troops and see how poor they really are.

              1. re: Pincus

                Oh yes, Harlem is excellent. The portions are HUGE, so you could probably get away with a good deal of sharing to keep your costs down.

                Do not, not, not go to Magic Oven. The students don't have much cash. Certainly they should get bang for their small bucks, not throwing it away on overpriced garbage.

                Good call! Harlem is probably your best bet in that area.
