Tasty food but expensive and sub par service.
The service was super
Great food and great service
We wanted to check out the amazing food from other online reviews and were not disappointed. The mung bean chaat salad was outstanding, and the smoked eggplant dip with the unusual trio of chips was great. The beef short rib curry portion was huge--we had to ask for a box to bring home leftovers, especially since we ate the whole Thai fish. Alas, we were too full for dessert but will have to return to try other dishes as well. Will bring friends so we can explore more of the menu, and also because the food was so enjoyable. Thank you for a very good dining experience, with attentive service.
Memorable brussel sprouts! Fabulous meal. Great wine. We sat and ate and drank for four hours! Last people in the place and never felt rushed or pressured to leave. Delicious meal from start to finish pand we can’t wait to return.
Absolutely amazing food ... everything we ate was very good . Will definitely go again
Had a great time, our server was very courteous and nice.
Food is absolutely delicious!! Will be back soon
The Pakora and the fried chicken were excellent. Drink selection is excellent.
Tasty food, friendly and prompt service. I highly recommend the brussels sprouts and the 685 chicken from the small plates and the spicy duck from the large plates. desserts were also very good.
I took my wife here to celebrate her birthday and from the moment we were greeted at the door the experience was perfect! The staff were engaged, friendly and informative without being intrusive at all. The decor and ambience was very inviting and casual. The food was absolutely sublime. We had the Chef's menu and every course made you stop and savour the experience! The only mistake we made was trying to rush so we could get to TIFF Lightbox to see a movie (that turned out to be sold out when got there).
When you go make sure you give yourself enough time to really enjoy the experience.
We had a variety of appetizers and every single one was delicious. We LOVE the Brussels sprouts! The beef short rib was outstanding. The flavours are and spices are well balanced and very interesting. Great first experience and we will be back for sure!
Spectacular as always!
Must try the braised beef!
On Open table it was saying Indian but it is actually South Asian fusion. So we were surprised but excited. Very good food and service I must say. Well done.
Tasty takes on traditional flavours! I would eat here again to explore other menu options.
This was hard to judge as the flavours were good and our waitress was friendly. However, I had a reaction to the food so please beware if you have allergies.
Amazing food, wine, people and service!!!! Can't wait to go back again!!!!
Group of 5 for a birthday celebration, accommodated putting candles in the dessert. Bar tender makes amazing cocktails! Service is very friendly 2 thumbs up. Food flavourful with a little spice nothing to hot for those who can't take it.
Place is very tiny making for a loud evening it didn't matter we enjoyed ourselves.
Seating is at a premium being 5 they turned the tables giving just enough seating and elbow room.
We were surprised to hear the lamb shank was out at 7pm, otherwise food was great.
Need to hang a curtain at the entrance to shield patrons from the cold air of the door opening/closing my only complaint.
Bathrooms are very clean.
We shared a variety of the "snacks" and ordered two mains which feed all 5 of us.
Cocktails are a bit pricey but was a fun and tasty evening.
Overall wouldn't hesitate to return.
Favourite restaurant in town! Must do the tasting menu!
Food was really flavourful and delicious. The tasting menu was not a great value, I'd go with individual dishes next time, but I'd definitely go back. The cocktails were also very enjoyable.
The menu is unique. The food was delightful. Everything was exceptional. The only negative is that it's very noisy when you are sitting in the middle of the restaurant.
Great staff, service and food. Servers are very knowledgeable about the menu. A definite must!
My husband and I were visiting Toronto and Rickshaw Bar was reconvened to us by a local barista. We made a reservation since we were only in town for a short time and did not want to miss the chance to eat here. We ordered two chefs dinners and were completely blown away by the flavor and presentation of each dish. The staff was friendly and knowledgeable about the menu items. This was one of the best meals I have had in life.
Great food, friendly staff, not super expensive and decent sized portions, all around a good experience I'll definitely be back.
Food was great- server had an attitude problem
This is one of the most unique cuisine experiences across the country. I come here almost on every visit i make to Toronto. I would highly recommend this restaurant to all foodies. This restaurant introduces you to an Asian -African dining that is rich in flavour and inter culture creativity.
We had the Brussels Sprouts, Lamb Shank and Shrimp. So tasty!!!
The food at Rickshaw is exciting and eclectic- so fresh and delicious - I will be a regular.
I had a terrific meal after a matinee theatre performance just down the street. Food was delicious, atmosphere/music set the mood - love the decor - and service was very friendly, offering helpful descriptions of dishes to try.
Absolutely delicious. I've never been anything but extremely pleased with the quality of food and high level of service. Rickshaw is one of my fav, go-to spots.
Yum yum yum!
Amazing service, flavourful food and great atmosphere. I would return here time and time again.
I’ve been to this restaurant 3 times. The food here is absolutely delicious. The servers are super friendly and knowledgeable about the menu. The drinks have a creative Indian twist to them.
However, the last time I was here, I felt the standards had dropped ever so slightly. Also, they took off my favourite dish of the menu - Jerk Mutton Dosa
One of my favourite spots in the city! Very interesting menu, and are amazing when it comes to accommodating allergies :)
Wonderful food. Never disappoints. One of the most creative menus in the city
Took my boyfriend here for his birthday. Great atmosphere, dim lighting, great food, great service. We stepped outside to leave and it was pouring and the waiter ran out and gave us an extra umbrella they had. Very nice experience :).
I think the food was overall good and the ambience and service was really good. I think the food however, could have been improved upon. The Pakora Bravas was more like french fries than actual pakoras, coming from a South Asian background myself. And the mung bean chaat didn't really have that much of a chaat like consistency, could have had more beans (or added chickpeas), maybe more sauces, yoghurt, tamarind, etc. The beef tacos and fried chicken were good. Overall we liked it, and would come again, perhaps to try to the entrees and dessert.
Excellent food and service. Creative and interesting tasting menu with so many delightful dishes it was difficult to pick a favourite. My partner loved it so much he is bringing back his team for dinner.
Amazing server! Delicious, interesting food, full of flavour!
2nd time here. The tasting menu is the way to go. You won’t leave hungry. Service is always great and the cocktails are tasty as well.
Simply stated, there is no one who is doing what Noreen is doing right now at Rickshaw.
The consistency of the experience, the perfect integration of spice and flavour will exceed your expectations whether this is your 1st or 10th visit.
She is the real thing. A true chef bringing ingredients together in a unique and creative way.
