I know all the high end places, but don't want to spend that kind of money. My guest is very flexible and would prefer hot spicey food.
Any suggestions in the neighbourhood?
Perhaps Utsav or The Host for Indian food?
Dynasty serves a decent seafood hot & sour soup. I haven't tried other spicy dishes at Dynasty.
A couple of Korean and Indian along Yonge for some hot and spicy:
Home of Hot Taste - healthy serving of kimchi Hotpot
Kathmundu - good value and food for Indian buffet downtown. It's not spicy though, unless you specify.
Playa Cabana is a great suggestion.
