Great place, very tasty food, cooked with care. A little spicy for me but I'm easily challenged. Great excuse to have more naan and beer!
Love Rickshaw Bar! I've only been here twice, and both times I tried the Chef's menu. It's such an amazing value for the amount of delicious quality food you get, and I've never left disappointed. The staff are super friendly, and the drinks are great. Would recommend everyone to check this place out!
I would 10 out of 10 recommend Rickshaw Bar! I went with a group of 3 where we split a bunch of dishes and everything we had was amazing, especially the beef curry! The atmosphere was fun and comfortable with good (low volume) music, making it a great spot for a dinner date, group get together, or even just drinks and apps as they have delicious cocktails!
Fantastic food. The chicken small plate was amazing as was the beef curry, in particular.
All the flavours of all the dishes were aromatic and distinct.
Only downside was that we sat 3 tables away from the front of the restaurant, and we were really cold as the door was never fully closed.
Haven’t had a dining experience this good in a very long time.
The food is ridiculously fabulous! Flavours and textures worthy of a much more expensive bill.
We had the chefs menu - highly enjoyable and recommended!
The food was excellent. I found the prices to be a bit high but relative to the uniqueness and incredible taste of the food, it was worth it. Excellent service and food comes really fast.
Yummy. We shared 6 dishes. Fantastic. Will come back
I am a vegetarian and have eaten here 4 times now and the experience has been great each time. Food is flavourful and the staff are wonderful.
Real great and differant food.
The service is sky hight compared to the service at the CN Tower’s restaurant
We had a wonderful evening. Exceptional service and VERY tasty food. We’re a little older than your demographic but we did find the music loud. We look forward to returning with friends
for the chefs choice.
Great food, great atmosphere, great service, great experience!
Food was excellent! Service? Standoffish. Like they couldn’t be bothered we were there. Also place is quite chilly with a big draft.
This place is incredible. I live in the neighborhood and even with all of the competition, it is by far my favorite. Brussels sprouts are amazing! Cocktails are super delicious and unique too.
I am so pleased to have found this place. The flavours of all the dishes were amazing. I loved the pakora dish, and the Khao Shay and Ismaili beef. Just amazing. The tamarind whiskey was also delicious drink. The service was passable but room for improvement (eg they seemed indifferent and didn't really explain how many dishes to order)
All the other dishes looked amazing and I wish I could try it all!
Well first of on this months Toronto Life magazine ( March 2018) they featured Nihari appetizers which was the MAIN reason I went . On not finding it on the menu when I asked the server he informed me that they had run out a few days ago and actually reprinted menus to reflect this change - I think that’s super weird that it’s featured in the press and then just not available ... like have they removed it from the menu ? If so why use that one food item for the media coverage ? Anyway other than that the food was fine - the appetizers were better than the main course ..
The restaurant was beautiful and the food was great 👍🏼
Food was quite yummy. Enjoyed the snacks more than the small plates. They ran out of their chicken and beef tacos which was upsetting. I didn’t quite like their drinks, and the service was kind of abrupt. The atmosphere was great though. Worth trying one time.
Great South East Asian restaurant with a lively ambience, exquisite tapas with lots of flavour and beautiful creativity with their presentation and imaginative cocktail mixes.this is a great restaurant for anyone thinking of taking their date, or hanging out with a group of friends for a wonderful evening.
Everything about this meal made our evening. A birthday dinner, but we had a show to make - and so they made sure we got our food in time, made recommendations so there would be no compromise, and were incredibly friendly. The food was eye-openingly delicious, with explosive flavour and perfectly-sized, presented portions. Even with advance anticipation, I wasn't expecting something this wonderful.
As always, incredible food, and amazing service. With all the top notch dining options in Toronto, this is still our go-to for a consistently high quality meal.
Keep doing what you’re doing chef Noureen and team!!
Chef’s menu was delicious and filling. Drinks were unique and quite delicious too
Amazing spot! Great food! Excellent service! This is a gem on Queen West.
Food was awesome. Went for Valentine’s Day and it was delish.
Food and service were great but it was so cold in there that we had to eat dinner with our winter coats on.
Awesome food. And definitely something you won’t find elsewhere. Well worth it.
Amazing experience as usual! Staff and food are always the best!!!!
Highly recommend the brussel sprouts and the tealeaf salad. The apps were great. The shrimp curry as a main was also great!
It was an excellent restaurant to have share-ables
A complete fluke that I picked this place for my birthday, but it was absolutely incredible! So flavourful and different. My friend will be back with his sister next weekend and I’ll be back next time I’m in Toronto.
The food here was absolutely delicious! Everything was so rich and tasty, we wanted to order dessert but we were too full. Will definitely be going back to try more of the menu.
Honestly, it was great except for the quantity of food. A small bowl of plain white jasmine rice is $3. And I mean small bowl.
But the food was absolutely amazing.
If you’re on a budget then not the place for you. If you want to try something new then sure ! Try the Ismaili beef curry, cauliflower, basil Thai duck. Anything really.
WOW. I was in town for a couple of nights and got a recommendation to check this place out from a friend. Boy am I glad I hoofed it through snow and cold to dine here! I had the duck for a main and it was unbelievable. Great staff as well!
Best Indian food i have ever had. Staff is very competent and nice. The chef is amazing and the food is not outrageously expensive. Amazing experience.
Incredible food with incredible flavours. A good twist on modern day Indian cuisine!
Rickshaw Bar is a solid concept and has a trendy ambiance. The scallop ceviche was tasty but portion size was a bit too small. The shrimp curry was on point, a very well expected dish with a perfect portion size. The service lacked warmth. It felt as our server was on autopilot and this lessened our enjoyment factor.
Tasty food, small portions. The gin with tumeric was 😋 delicious.
Waiter seemed slightly annoyed when we wanted to move further from the door because of the cold air coming in. Tuesday night and only a few others dining.
Service was slow and the place was loud. Food was unique especially the shrimp curry which was amazing. It is literally a bar as it says. I stress that point because I thought it would be more like Diwan restaurant.
We had a birthday dinner at Rickshaw Bar the week before Christmas. I made a reservation at 6:15pm, got there on time and they are welcoming and anticipating us to arrive. We ordered the tasting menu that usually takes an hour and a half from start to finish. But as we had to go see a concert right after, they were able to rush it a bit for us into an hour to accommodate that.
Restaurant environment and ambiance was great with average to low noise level and background music (not pop music that can easily distract us from conversations!) We ordered the tasting menu and it was really good value! Love the crunch in their mung bean salad, the hint of Japanese cuisine in their Brussels sprouts, we got two chicken dishes (probably due to our preference to avoid beef) and they were both tender and juicy. The duck dish was a bit too salty but the texture was cooked to perfect.
Also love how they prepared the birthday surprise with a candle lit on top of the signature milk pastry and wine was fantastic too! We used the West Queen West gift card redeemed with Aeroplan miles to pay the bill which took them some time to figure it out but overall still great service!
Will definitely recommend!
The food and service were both excellent. We shared 8 different dishes over the course of the evening, and they were all very different from each other and each was equally well prepared and presented.
Amazing and so delicious! The waiter was also super friendly and knowledgeable and all his recommendations hit the mark. There are so many restaurants in Toronto that you never have to go back once you have tried a place. I will definitely come back here for another visit!
