I went to this restaurant yesterday and was blown away by the food!

“Sophisticated palates are familiar with Thai, Chinese, Japanese, and Indian flavors, but it’s unusual to find them so seductively intertwined with North American staples” (1)

The best thing from the appetizer and desert menus were the samplers. A ‘chef’s choice’ between 3 different trays. Everything is presented so beautifully that you almost don’t want to eat it. Watching the food, (or your neighbours) approach the table is actually exciting. Now, let me say that I don’t usually go to these types of restaurants and it was my father who took me here. Nonetheless, it was an amazing experience in a lounge environment with amazing waiters who went out of their way to answer our questions and tell us about each piece. This wasn’t just food, this was a fun experience!

ps. The Yam Fries and Kobe Beef dish are also too yummy to miss!

    hmm.. My company was planning to have the christmas party there but then it got too expensive. The lounge looked nice though. I think they described the food as Asian Fusion

    i’m kind of amazed how people don’t do their research first before accusing some one like Gustavo has just done to Stephen.

    man i hope the sad little comments left recently are not from Torontorians themselves.
