Restaurants in Toronto

Dining in Toronto is as diverse as the city. Expect Italian, Greek, Chinese and Indian food as authentic as you'd find in their homelands in neighbourhoods like Little Italy, Chinatown and The Danforth, Toronto's Greektown. Lai Wah Heen, in Midtown, is one of Toronto's finest Chinese restaurants and Terroni offers excellent Italian fare in the Financial District. Restaurants typically close between lunch and dinner and most use local ingredients.
