    TIFF 2012 TIP: Single TIFF visitors will find something worth looking at at Spice Route. A favourite of the after-work crowd, it's known for its Asian fusion cuisine, stiff well-crafted drinks & scene Read more

    Two things to try: Kobe beef cooked on a rock - really cool experience. And two, the bathrooms are the best thing ever. Just be sure you press the button to exit or you'll be yelled at by attendant.

    Gorgeous atmosphere but not the best service. It took a server 20 minutes to come to our able after we were seated. Other than that, good food. Try the berry margarita!

    As a vegan, I had their Spicy Stir Fried Eggplant which wasn't spicy at all. It was more sweet, but it was delish. Couldn't complain.

    See and be-seen spot for style, drinks...oh and they have good food too, but above all: be seen. And cool bathrooms. Groovy.

    These guys are hella strict on dress codes for guys on a Saturday night. Don't wear Converse- even if no one can see your feet at a sit down dinner.

    Having drinks and dinner with a colleague. Love this vibe. This place seems very popular. The ambiance is great! I ordered the whole red snapper & a mojito

    One of the places to find "beautiful people" for the over 30+ crowd. Bar is loud and the "talent" is quite attractive.
  • Laura D.
    In all honesty, the restaurant is more decor and less good food. It's not bad, but you certainly don't pay for what you get. The Pekin Duck was ok, but if you like decent sized portions go elsewhere

    LunDin menu is a good deal if your table is over 5ppl. Too much food. Some portions should be smaller that way you don't waste food, you can always ask for more.

    Funkiest bathrooms! They do make you edgy though ;) Crispy Duck breast was delicious. Waiters were not knowledgeable of the items on the menu though.

    Do not look at the picture with skulls and remains on the wall.. I makes the experience of a bistro bizzare.. I wonder why they would put it up in the first place..

    Came here for winterlicious and it was a big disappointment. The portions were micro tiny and the quality on par with a food court. Come here for drinks but eat somewhere else beforehand.

    Ps, service is pathetic!! We ordered drinks at the lounge and not only did it take ages for them to take our order, but they charged a drink that never came and complained about not leaving enough tip

    Food is fair, but not worth the price. Good for a night out if you don't mind spending the money. Atmosphere is a pretty trendy hang out, but not pretentious.

    Don't bother with the food (overpriced and nothing special). Come for drinks and enjoy the great ambiance instead.

    The pad thai is tasty but the service is horrible and the washrooms are too dark to be functional. Thoroughly disappointed and definitely won't be returning again.
