Nice lunch in Dufferin-Finch area of North York...Any Recommendations?

Hi, can anyone recommend a fave place in the Dufferin-Finch or Dufferin Steeles area of North York that has decent food? For a nice Saturday afternoon lunch? Thanks!

  1. Not sure exactly what you mean by a nice Saturday lunch but here are some decent options in the area:

    Cynthia's (chinese), Sababa, Me Va Me (Middle Eastern), or Hockey Sushi (AYCE)

    A bith further North - Sofra Grill (Middle Eastern) and Dante's (pizza).

    I have also heard Dr Laffa (Israeli/Middle Eastern), Mavi Grill (Turkish) and Max's of Manila (Filipino) mentioned on CH but have never eaten at any of them.

      1. re: MissBingBing

        I think Bistrot 92's @ Dufferin and Eglinton. But if the OP's willing to go that far South, how about Camarra's on Dufferin @ Glencairn?

        1. re: kwass

          +1 for Camarra's kwass! Not exactly in the area, but great!

          Heads up... They now have a location (Mimi's by Camarra's) up north on Dufferin (take out for sure...), but I suspect the trip would be just as far as the trip down to Glencairn.

      2. First to mind would be Dr Laffa on 401 Magnetic Dr., Unit 39-40 (just west of Dufferin between Finch & Steeles) but it's not open on Saturdays.

        Most of the other suggestions posted are not really close.

        It's not an area with much beyond chain restaurants. The few quality independents that have tried have failed.

        Do you have any meal or environment preferences?
