Restaurants at Bloor/Bathurst

I am staying for a week in this area solo. Can I get recommendations for good Thai,Indian/Korean in this area > Within walking distance is important as I will have no car with me and I would also like a takeout option as i will be busy. Thank you all so much!

  1. I have always enjoyed Mt. Everest restaurant for Indian. South side of Bloor east of Bathurt. For Thai I used to go to Real Thailand on the north side near Spadina. Food always consistently good.

    1. Guu Sakabar, Buk Chang Dong Soon Tofu, Sushi Couture are all great.

        On the same block of Bloor St. as the above-mentioned Buk Chang Dong Soon Tofu is Tofu Village, which I prefer for slightly better banchan (side dishes) and a larger menu. All at roughly the same price point for Korean food. Don't know if it does takeout, though. I always eat in on the theory that most food - particularly Korean food - invariably tastes better right out of the kitchen. Also, my go-to dish is the soup/stew-like vegetable soon tofu, which can't easily be transported without much sloshing around and spilling. Buk Chang Dong is still pretty good, too, though its short menu is almost exclusively soon tofu. Either place, you can be in and out in a half-hour for less than $10, all in, and be eminently satisfied. On the south side of Bloor St., a 10-minute walk west of Bathurst St.

          Thanks for reminding me that I need to try Tofu Village. My 3 year-old is not down with the soondubu so the expanded menu will come in handy.

            My two year old goes nuts for the seafood pancakes at Tofu Village. We do to. They are amazing.

            For me, korean food, especially the stews and soups, are better the next day. I like sunrise, its my favourite soon tofu along that strip of korean restaurants. They do takeout.

        2. Maroli is great for South Indian.

          1. If you like Thai, Indian and Korean, I'm guessing you like bold flavours and spice. You have to try One Love, veggie Jamaican takeout one the west side of Bathurst a block north of Bloor. I make a point of stopping in if I'm in the area. Very craveable on grey days.

            1. No mention of Banjara? West of Christie station, one of the better Indian places in the city.
