Great lunch place!
For a client lunch, the background music was a little too loud. Although portions could be larger for the price paid, the food was great.

Amazing Food But...
Really slow service. I was so starving and had a killer headache by the time food came. Also there was a 20 min gap between each dish. 4 dishes took the meal 2 hours somehow.

Second visit to this restaurant,
Second visit to this restaurant, first was in November. I thought is was very good again, brought family for their first visit, they thought it was OK, my dad thought it was overpriced. 6 people, $400. no dessert, 1-2 drinks each. Food is upscale Korean. Will say even though I thought it was good likely won't be back for awhile, twice in 3 months is enough

Better and better every time.
Slowly becomming one of my favourite restaurants in Toronto. I have now been 5 times and it gets better every time.

Great Food... We love Korean
Great Food... We love Korean and they have a very "cool" take on most of the dishes. The only word of caution. The taste is loud! If you're a purest looking for subtlety that brings out the best out

An early birthday dinner care of my husband and it was fabulous - we cleaned our plates off and downed our glasses of beer and soju.

You come here for the exceptional Korean food. A must try are the BBQ pork buns. The service is exemplary.

Friendly and informative service
Friendly and informative service to newbies of Korean food. An interesting selection of starters, Lobster Bi Bim Bap was excellent, and the DYI main course was perfect for couples and groups. A little on the expensive side for a modest budget, but worth visiting on a special occasion. I'd recommend it to friends in a heartbeat.

Great food as usual
We have been to Swish a few times and the food is always great and we're excited to move back into the neighbourhood to come here more often.

Everything was great. The atmosphere, food, lights.. the only thing to point out would be the music that was playing in the background which did not really go with the place I thought. But is always a pleasure to visit

Great authentic Korean food where flavors are intense and vibrant! Table top cooking set includes all you could want in a complete meal - meat , soup, side dishes, rice. Overall, excellent food but service is lack lustre with terrible timing on when dishes came out....

2nd visit as good as the first
Always great when you can go back to a restaurant and have a 2nd great experience. The food was fantastic, the presentation was spot on and the service was great. I will definitely be recommending this spot to fellow chefs, family and friends.
Keep up the great work.

Delish as always!!
Swish never disappoints, would recommend to any foodie looking for a casual dinning spot. Shared the SSam set and it was great and I'll be back again soon.

Our new favourite restaurant!
Had a terrific meal at Swish by Han Saturday. Were stuck in hideous QEW traffic so were 15 minutes late - no problem. Our reservation was still good.
Had never eaten Korean food before. The wait staff explained how best to use the menu: 2-3 appetizers and one main.
We had the marinated pears with Stilton cheese (excellent), the sweet chilli prawns (excellent) and the Special - Beef Short Ribs (also, excellent).
We'll be back for sure!!

Food was great. Service was good. Interior was great. Over all it is worth the price.

Second time being there
I really loved the first time I went there so I decided to take a friend who came to visit me. The food was just as I remembered, awesome. The dishes were kind of westernized but the amazing blend of tastes still retain some traditional touches. Anyways, highly recommendable.

Happy Birthdsy Dad
It was our Dad's birthday and we wanted to do something
New! Swish was the PERFECT choice!
Good atmosphere, small and modern, great service!
AND.... The food was terrific.. For 6 Foodies (2are chefs at great
restaurants) Seish was the perfect choice!
Wait staff helped us with choices. We tried a lot
Of different dishes as well as their special drinks
And the bill came to $50/person! Nobody walked
away hungry... All very satisfied... Food was WONDERFUL!!!

Food was good, enjoyed the lobster bibimbap and the pork bun rolls. Only thing I didnt like was the really loud music. Was hard to have a conversation.

This is the umpteen time I've been in this restaurant and as always the food is great. I was with my sister and our server was attentive this time however she didn't get our order right. We had asked for the Dolsot Bim Bim Bap but we received the regular Bim Bim Bap and you really won't know the difference until you get to the bottom of the bowl as the rice gets really crispy due to the very hot bowl. Anyway, although it was not what we were expecting it was still very good and when I mentioned to the other server that gave us our bill - she was very pleasant and gave us a discount due to the incorrect order. I would still higly recommend this place for the food.
7/24/2013 12:00:00 AM
Loved the music and service. Would definitely return.
7/26/2013 12:00:00 AM
Would definately go back and try other things on the menu.
8/14/2013 12:00:00 AM
Very good Korean!
Great food and great to try many different dishes!

As always, the meal at Swish by Han was terrific. Staff are very helpful and friendly. Fabulous food.

Korean Gem in Old Town
Came across Swish By Han and having seen the photos just had to try it out. Having gone once, with my partner, we insisted on dragging some other friends there the very next day! Awesome fresh and tasty food, with sweet spice and new takes on some old classics. Definitely a multi-visit kind of place and highly recommended.

Food great - music unbearably loud
The noise level is absolutely horrible. You can't hear each other talk and can't hear what the waiter is saying. The music is TOO LOUD! We were only table in the restaurant and asked them to turn music down - they wouldn't. Although food is great, we won't go there again.
9/12/2013 12:00:00 AM
Great for Lunch
Server was a highly trained professional who was able to answer all our questions on the menu. She made our lunch lots of fun. Food is always tasty and it is great value.

Surprisingly Innovative Korean Fare
What a surprise change from the pork neck soups of Korea town - the food was a modern creative twist on the traditional and delicious. We shared several smaller dishes and enjoyed the mushroom swish which was an asian fondue with a surprising risotto-esque ending. A bonus was that our daughter, who is vegan, could eat more than salad. The customized rice wine was delicious.
I must say that although it was not in the student economy range but four of us ate very well with a large rice wine, one cocktail and a shared desert for under $150 - a bargain I would say.
The only criticisms would be that the music volume level was quite high - even for the 20 year olds - and the western wine options were limited and very expensive.

enjoyed the food and the service. a little loud in there yet an overall good experience.
9/21/2013 12:00:00 AM
Took a bit of a risk trying Korean for our first time with it being the first time in a year we've been able to get time in the city without the kids but it more than paid off. Our server was very patient with us explaining everything despite how busy they were. We loved every appetizer on the menu. Had the Bulgogi Rib-eye Ssan (aka lettuce wraps) to share for our main course which was OK but ordered another appetizer afterwards. Only complaint is the poor accustics. My poor husband couldn't hear a word I was saying unless I yelled across the table and was a left a bit in the dark with my conversation with the server. Wouldn't say the music was painfully loud but the walls needed something to absorb the sound a bit.

Situated among other bar-type of resto's, Swish by Han has more of a casual, less "I'm checking you out" type of vibe.
Family-owned and run, the staff, food, decor were all great. The only thing is that I can comment not so favourably on was that there are lots of hard surfaces, so the noise level was louder than we would have liked. Overall, great spot!

Service is getting better
Had dinner with a friend last night and food was great and service is slowly improving - there are never enough servers to deal with a full house (it's always busy there!) but I see why people (including me) go back as quality of food is great - they do not hold back on the korean spices/heat!
High recommendation for those who want to take it up a few notches from Ktown as this place has great ambiance during dinner and food will keep hard-core Koreans and those new to Korean food equally happy!
10/23/2013 12:00:00 AM
Korean food is full of strong flavours. SBH has made it a bit more accessible with a could of modern twists. A meal at SBH would wake up your taste buds!

Really love the food
This was our third visit and the food has always been fantastic. Each item is SO tasty. Great for sharing, lots to choose from. Korean meets downtown.
