I was in this place this week. Food is good, portions are not big, so you have a chance to try 2-3 dishes. It seems to me it is a bit pricey but anyway the place is nice

At the heart of Toronto, Downtown is the destination
for cheap eats and fast fashion. Cut through by hip
and trendy Yonge Street, the vibe here is young, with
