I've dined at Matahari Grill on several occasions, both for dinner and lunch.
I've enjoyed every meal and have never been disappointed.
Perfectly cooked, perfectly spiced. A wonderfully exotic dining experience.

The crew at Matahari were
The crew at Matahari were super helpful, and knowing that we had a mix of a person who'd never had good from the region, a picky eater, and a vegetarian, they made recommendations and asked appropriate questions to find out people's preferences and dietary restrictions. By doing so, they were able to ensure everyone enjoyed their meal.
Definitely try the Char Kway Teow! Delicious! The Laksa was pretty good, too! Maybe not as good as what I've had in Singapore, but definitely better than most I've tried here! Overall, I was very pleased with the food and service!

A Hidden Gem
Our favourite restaurant in Toronto. Anytime we have the opportunity to get into the city, this is our first stop! Amazing Malaysian flavours and great service in a very cool neighbourhood.

Quiet Malaysian restaurant
I've been to Matahari Bar & Grill several times. I highly recommend their fish curry special (when it is offered). Definitely a good place to go for a quiet meal with work colleagues or friends. They've made a mistake with my order one time, but overall, their services and food have been consistently good.

Great Overall Experience
I had brought my family, including 2 grandmother's for mother's day and everyone loved the ambiance of the restaurant and our attentive server (she was really great and gave good tips on the food). The food was very good and fresh.
Would recommend and visit again.

Malasian - Interesting
Well-designed restaurant. Interesting and different menu - but as a first timer I had no clue as to where to start. Our waiter was excellent in first learning what types of foods we liked; and then took over making super suggestions.
Everything was well thought-out, food and service were great, and good-different.
Will go back!

Best Beef Rendang in Town
I love coming here for a quick lunch or come here for dinner with my hubby and friends. Staff are warm and friendly and some them have been there for as long as I have been coming for almost 13 years. The food is amazing especially beef rendang is melt in your mouth to die for dish. There ain't another restaurant in town that serve rendang as goid as Matahari. Only thing is, dish is served only at dinnertime, so for lunch you have pre-order it but the chef is more than happy to oblige. Green beans sambal is another excellent dish that goes well with rendang and a bowl of steam rice. I would recommend this restaurant to anyone who enjoys exotic food

After 15 years...
This was one of our favorite spots years ago and we went with high expectations. These were satisfied the food was as good or better than expected and although not once a week fare it was very good for a special occasion. The glass of wine was no less expensive than anywhere else, but the prices were very reasonable. We went early on a week day and shared the pleasant person who served us with only two other tables, service was prompt we are sure for busy nights they would have more than one person. A very enjoyable experience.

Amazing entrees. Go for the curries. Skip the appetizers though, not worth the price.

Good food but busy
This place has excellent food. I go there often. Prices are from. 13 - 17 dollars per plate. Service slows down considerably when the restaurant gets busier as there are only two waiters. It took 25 minutes to get dessert once. Would I go back? Yes. The food is excellent.

Yummy Malaysian food
I recommend ordering several appetizers and main courses for sharing which is why the bigger your group, the better. Everything was delicious and very fresh. Nothing was too spicy and they will cater it to your tastes. Definitely get the roti to go with the sauces of the curries. You will want every last drop! Portions are generous and we ordered 4 main courses for 4 people. We probably would have been fine with 3 courses as we had leftovers for a doggy bag. But of course we were happy we got to try 4 dishes.
Service was very quick but they didn't rush us out, despite one person being a half hour late. They let us sit for a long time and brought the bill when asked. We will definitely go back!
