Cibo Wine Bar King Street522 King Street West, Toronto
Well done Liberty Group!

With a view of the busy city streets, the intoxicating scent of fresh pizza and the friendly smiles of those filling my wine glass, how could I go wrong with Cibo Wine Bar Toronto?! Liberty Entertainment Group has done it again and I have found my new favorite spot! I could see myself enjoying any occasion here, from a casual dinner with a friend to a romantic night out with that special someone.

This new spot in the King West neighborhood has everything you need including a very impressive wine list, a mouth watering menu and a staff that feels like family. Do you think visiting this one of a kind restaurant everyday is pushing it?!

Well done Liberty Group!

The worst dance floor music

Cummon, this place used to be jumping. I walk in and see people standing still on the dance floor while this older DJ with a baseball cap is hopping around in the DJ booth like he is world famous or something. It was awful and it didn't get better. To much over mixing. I went to dance, instead stood off to the side like most did wondering why I went there in the first place. Won't go back.

I went to this restaurant last night. I saw a crowd of people outside and thought I must have made the right choice given the amount people inside and out. We were seated promptly, inside near the window facing the jazz festival.
Our server came by with our menus, asked for our drink order - we hadn't received the cocktail menu yet. After receiving it we ordered our drinks and entrees at the same time. We waited patiently for our drinks, hoping to receive at least a glass of water while we waited.
We finally received our food, still waiting for our drinks. After seeing our food arrive, our server sought our drinks. After which he brought the complimentary bread & spreads we should have started with. I ordered the $26 salmon dish,a small piece of overcooked frozen salmon on a bed of raw spinach - $26. I had the $11 Pear-adise, a watered down cocktail with a lot of ice to water it down further. The salmon was poorly seasoned, poorly cooked and overpriced. My friend had the stir fry - which was somewhat palatable, and a watered down berry cocktail similar to mine.
After picking at the salmon, I asked the server if the dish only comes with spinach, no it should come with salad he says. He goes to the kitchen to get a dish full of raw spinach, apologizing for the error. There are no words. The salmon is inedible, the complimentary bread is like melba toast and I can`t wait to leave. We push our unfinished meals to the end of the table to indicate we`re done. Not taking cues, I waved our server over to bring the bill. Apologizing more, he offers free dessert and coffee.
Everything we`ve consumed so far is awful. I doubt dessert would be any different and insisted on the cheque. A $75 bill for 2 unpleasant meals and service. Everything is overpriced and poorly prepared. Go to Moxies, we had lunch there earlier in the day, the food and service was great; or Joey which is across the courtyard from this restaurant, they`ve never failed me.
Please do not eat here. It was an awful experience.

Terrible Creole Cuisine
By BLU of Toronto (1 Review)
Submitted Sunday, June 23, 2013 - 8:46am [Dine in]

Over-battered soggy cold shrimp fry.
Improperly coated rancid spiced-pecans in a measly underdressed salad.
Really, with the crawfish and tuna ceviche, they truly have mastered a mix of horrific seasonings – but of course the old seafood doesn’t help, which leads to what is a dish of mackerel but substituted with bass that is so past expiry it smelled fishy even after cooking and on the accompanying under-seasoned cauliflower horseradish mash.
Don’t forget the seedy raspberry mojito, full of ice and lacking flavor and rum … an amateur drink designed only for profit.
Jambalaya is a composition of undercooked burnt tomato paste flavored rice with what appears to be a shrimp so overly rubbery it cannot be cut with the cutlery provided.
Grease oozing underdone fried chicken.
Oh, and brace your stomach for the undercooked scallops. Undercooking appears to be quite the theme.
This is as far from New Orleans as you can get – in a very bad way.
Um, if anyone is going to sell such appalling food, he or she should at least try to offer it with good service.

Wunderland Cafe & Gallery1905 East Queen Street, Toronto
Not So Great Experience
By donotdinehere of toronto beaches (1 Review)
Submitted Saturday, June 15, 2013 - 8:13am [Dine in]

My fiance and I discovered Wunderland when we first moved to Toronto months ago. Our first experience there was not too bad. My fiance enjoyed his conversation he had with the owner, Peter. I noticed however, as time went on and the more we went there, it became more and more uncomfortable. When his wife would work, she dressed slobbish, in jogging pants, a ratty shirt, almost in her pyjamas when she serves you, she looks unclean. I always try to remember that looks don't count but her personality suits the clothing in this case. She is very miserable to deal with, ungrateful for the business, no hellos when you walk in, no thank yous when you leave and she gets annoyed easily. One time when we were there the whole family was eating their dinner out where the customers were sitting and it made us feel like we were in someones living room. I felt very uncomfortable. Also there were times when we went and they didn't even have coffee brewed and wouldn't brew it for us! Peter or his wife would say "An Americano instead?" Then charge you more than what they would have for a regular cup of coffee. I am not talking like we were there at closing time either.... it was 5 in the afternoon and they closed at 7 that day!!!! THEY ARE A COFFEE BAR!!! So I told my fiance that I am never going back. He agreed.
However, big mistake, I did. I met a new friend around the area and I didn't know of any other places to go and we bypassed Wunderland. I decided, okay, one more shot. As we walked in, "The Wife" was there behind the counter and she just stared at us walking in. No hello, nothing. I felt like leaving but we were there and my friend didn't notice so I just left it alone. We were deciding who was going to pay and we were just joking with each other, when I noticed that "The Wife" started to get annoyed, mind you she wasn't even done pouring our drinks, so she wasn't waiting for us. So we just paid and decided to sit down. We chatted away and all of sudden she comes up to us and says, "You two are just going to have to keep it down, you are too loud, and you are giving me a migraine." Then she walked away. I said, "Let's go." I said, "Only in Toronto." I even told the people outside, who had come in to order and asked if when they came in if we were too loud. They agreed that we were not being loud. She didn't like us from the start. Probably because we were happy to have each others company. So I guess if you go there you just have to keep your mouth shut. It's probably because people don't talk in Toronto they keep themselves on their damn phones and then when someone does talk it's alien. I took pictures and I am going to post it and network and I will tell everyone I know what happened. There has never been many people in there when I go. NOW I KNOW WHY!!!! For sure this time I will never go back. They should be embarrassed of their business. It is not so WUNDERFUL!!!

This restaurant is under new management and they are doing GREAT!! Of course I tried Pad Thai (mixed with chicken and shrimp), Tom Yum shrimp, and chicken wings. Their Pad Thai is fantastic and full of flavor! It is hard to find a real flavor of Pad Thai in that area. It is not a ketchup style but it is a tamarind based sauce style stir fried with bean sprout, tofu, chives, and peanut. Tom yum is also bold of flavor with sour and spicy. They should have put more mushroom :) Chicken wings is very good too. Try to eat chicken wing while it is hot. Kudos to this restaurant.

Beautiful patio, but unfortunately their standards have slipped. They used to have delicious fresh chicken fingers, but have since subtituted some frozen ones from Food Basics. Not worth the money. To top it off, since we had three orders of chicken fingers, our waiter used the old "my shift is ending" line before our food came. Needless to say, we felt ripped off.

Submitted Wednesday, May 15, 2013 - 7:27pm [Take-out]

Over the years I've found that china china's food to be Mediocre, it tasted bad, the vegetables tasted very poorly like they were lifeless, the beef tasted as if it was rotting or something. This last time i went there today i ordered the special with beef and black bean sauce and breaded shrimp and it was terrible. The beef again tasted very bad, the green peppers again tasted dead the shrimp was the best out of it all but this time when i ate it, it tasted weird ( not like last time). The rice tasted as if it had been sitting there for at least a day.

There are some times were the food actually tastes alright like on holidays or the odd time when i go there but the majority of the time that i go there it actually doesn't taste appetizing and ill have to throw out a portion of the food or give it to my brother who can actually tolerate that kind of taste.

J Pizza Plus314 Parliament Street, Toronto
Shockingly Good Indian Food!
By JerkyLeBoeuf of Toronto, ON (1 Review)
Submitted Tuesday, May 14, 2013 - 7:48pm [Dine in]

I wandered into this "pizza" place completely by accident, drawn in by the intriguing, hand-printed signs promising "Butter Chicken Rolls" and a variety of kebabs. I rarely visit this part of the city, but today I happened to be in the neighborhood AND ravenously hungry, so I decided to take a chance on a low-key, local dining option. I was in for the surprise of my life.

Entering J Pizza Plus is visually underwhelming. Five time-worn booths line the south wall, while the large open kitchen and cashier areas occupy the the entire north wall. The back-lit plastic menu slots above the cash are all empty. Instead, the day's specials are laser printed on 8 1/2 x 11 sheets of typing paper, all curled and warped by the steam and heat, taped to the glass wall separating staff and customers. So yes, visually, very underwhelming. But you only have to close your eyes and let the fantastic aromas wafting from the kitchen tell an altogether different story.

Personally, I am a fanatic for Indian cuisine, so I had no interest in the pizzas on display, although they looked fine - especially considering the ridiculously low prices. Instead, I decided to sample two Indian-style specials: the Chicken Biryani, and a Butter Chicken Roll.

Owner-chef Jamal cooked the Butter Chicken from scratch, slicing generous chunks of juicy, crimson Tandoori chicken and tossing it with onions, fresh cream, and all the other secret herbs and spices that have made this dish a comfort food favorite the world over. As he and his wife prepared my Naan bread and Biryani, another employee brought me a free samosa with a generous dollop of Jamal's home-made hot Scotch Bonnet and Mint sauce, of which the staff seemed particularly proud. The sauce was intense, testing the thresholds of my tolerance for heat, but without overpowering the unique and savory pungency that marked this as the condiment of an expert chef. All fans of fiery foods need to give Jamal's mint sauce a try. They won't regret it.

Both my dishes were ready in just about 12 minutes, and both were delicious.

First, the Butter Chicken Roll. A generous portion was wrapped up in a soft and fluffy Naan bread, with a counterpoint of freshly chopped lettuce adding a cool and crispy texture that perfectly underscored this classic sauce-heavy dish. It was delicious, and a bargain to boot!

While the Butter Chicken Roll was very, very good, the Chicken Biryani was on a whole other level. I have had Chicken Biryani countless times over the years, both in high end Indian restaurants as well as in dive-y hole-in-the-wall joints, but NEVER have I had Chicken Biryani quite like this before. It was, quite simply, the best Chicken Biryani I have ever had in my life. Jamal's super-authentic Hyderabad style seasoning and delicious falling-off-the-bone dark meat chicken (as it should be!) are now the Gold Standard by which I shall forever gauge my future encounters with this particular dish. At 4.99, it would be a bargain at TWICE the price they're asking.

The only negative thing I can think to say about J Pizza Plus is that it is so far from my home, which means I will be forced to make a weekly pilgrimage to get my Indian Food Fix! If they ever manage to put their signage in order and get some decent menus printed, watch out, because J Pizza Plus is already serving up some of Regent Park's tastiest food, even though very few people even know it exists.

HIGHLY RECOMMENDED!!!

I've been going there for years as they usually provide decent service and speed especially during lunchtime. My favourite meal is the pho, as everything else on the menu is a bit too greasy for my liking. Recently, I have noticed a trend in the quality of their meat going down. It might be out of their control, as they're a franchise after all.
