Good Asian downtown TO

I'm getting together with a couple of girlfriends next week, and I'm usually charged with selecting a restaurant. Asian works well due to some dietary restrictions. Looking for something that has decent (at least) food, not too high end, but still a nice atmosphere where we can relax and chat.

We went to Khao San Road last time and, while the food was good, the atmosphere wasn't really conducive to "catching up" (we only get together once or twice a year).

It doesn't have to be Asian, but Italian is def out. I'm so out of touch with Toronto restaurants! Suggestions would be appreciated. Looking for something south of College and, say, between about Bathurst and Jarvis.

  1. I'd recommend Spadina Garden....easily one of my fav Chinese restaurants in the city. They're ironically, not on Spadina at all, but at Bay and Dundas.

    Dishes there that I like:

    - Spicy peanut chicken (amazing! it's their signature dish!
    )- Sweet and sour shrimp
    - Hunan beef
    - Crispy beef
    - Shanghai noodle with chicken and shrimp
    - Beef spring rolls

    Hope that helps! :)
