Vi Pei is tucked away in a plaza on Kingston Road in the east end of Toronto. It was recommended by a friend and it didn't disappoint. The steak I had was excellent and surrounded by a variety of garden-fresh vegetables, including slices of peppers. The prices are reasonable and the waiters are very friendly but not obtrusive. The restaurant... More

There's not a lot of choice in Cliffside for eats, beyond fast food. This place offers the best in the strip. Friendly service, nice atmosphere, rather cozy, good selection, nicely presented, and very reasonable prices.

I was really impressed with the food and service. I eat bacon and eggs often and they're either good or not but these were excellent. The bacon was perfect, the eggs were fluffy and the home fries were well cooked and tasty. I'm not usually impressed by bacon and eggs but these were fantastic.

It's delicious! Get the Focaccia club sandwich. I have been to Vi Pei and Vi Vetha's and both are good.

This place used to be our go-to place for a great brunch. Especially when one of my kids wanted a hearty breakfast and a chance to chat. The last time I came with my nephew this month, I was disappointed. A plate of eggs Benedict used to have a crisp salad and some fresh fruit. This time the salad was... More

This is a restaurant a friend and I head to after church most Sunday morning. It never even occurred to me to write a review on a place I get to so regularly but I think they deserve a very positive mention as both the food and service are quite good. Go and enjoy.

Third year in a row that I've eaten at this restaurant. The menu is awesome and the food has always been well prepared and a good price. They are also very good at accommodating groups. I would mention that parking was hard to find though.

HORRIBLE EXPERIENCE . Our server, although very polite was unprepared. When asked about the specials she said she would check. Came back a couple minutes later and asked if we are ready to order. I ordered the specials anyway. My drink ran empty and our food took almost a hour to arrive. The seafood pasta had pieces of shrimp shells... More

Staying in Scarborough

Neighbourhood Profile
Scarborough
Situated astride Lake Ontario, Scarborough is a district heavily influenced by immigration. With a number of low-rent shopping and dining options making it a highly affordable part of town, and boasting one of Toronto's largest shopping malls, the otherwise green suburban neighborhood is a good place to go for bargains and discounts. It also draws in photographers. The spires, archways, and cavernous rooms of the BAPS Shri Swaminarayan Mandir Palace are filled with breathtaking art, architecture, and detailed reliefs – it’s like entering a different world, The ruins of columns and installation art at the Guild Inn makes a free-for-all exploration site, while the big-name draw for young photographers is the menagerie at the Toronto Zoo. While many visitors shirk Scarborough as too suburban, its houses are some of Toronto's most mystical and haunting architectural beauties. And for adventure lovers, it has river-rafting and some unique hiking trails.
