Sorry but TOVLI sucks. It's like eating cardboard with some fake cheese. King David is a better bet.

Tov-li is the epitome of low-quality greasy food. I have avoided it for years. Surprised Java and Jewels isn't on the list. The new Ba-Li Laffa on Bathurst should be top 3. Burgy's at Bathurst and Steeles is also a very good upscale burger place. Good start but lots missing from this list.

this is the worst list you have it all wrong. What about Lyme taco? What about Bistro Grande? Tov Li, Really? Come on, even the Sobey's ticket counter is better than that.
