Kintori.... another fail.

Morningside Ave pizza place... Talk about scraping the bottom of the news barrel

I thought it was clever, seeing how 'tori' means 'chicken' and all...it's pretty appropriate for a yakitori place, imo.

Bindia was probably the best Indian meal I have ever had! The flavours were superb. Amazing. Will definitely go back.

Best pizza in Scarborough. Try the spicy chicken one. You will keep on going for more.

Went to try The Greek on Friday for lunch. Found a strand of hair in my Greek Salad and they forgot to put tzatziki on my pita. Management didn't seem to care either.

KO Burgers, what took you so long? I have no idea how they stayed in business. I always assumed it was a front.

The Greek....Worst Greek food in Toroto. Tasteless, not fresh, terrible service. They don't even cool the meat in front of you they just re heat it...Tzatziki tastes like sour cream...No gyros...what kind of Greek place doesn't make Gyros...Everything about this place is a joke.....If you guys want a real Greek experience with amazing fresh food and great service I suggest hitting up It's All GRK on Queen...Now that's what Greek should taste like!
