The best street food experiences are often found exploring the narrow roads of a bustling city. More often than not, the hungry traveller is inclined to stop and try a little bit of everything. For this reason, the rickshaw is regarded as the transportation of choice for any hungry explorer. At Rickshaw Bar, we aim to bring that very experience to you in the best way possible; combining essential flavours from the streets of South & Southeast Asia, into our small plates and snacks.

We did the chefs choice option, which was $50pp. They allowed us to request x2 of the options, we ended up with their naan, scallop ceviche, roasted brussel sprouts, beef short rib, salad, shrimp curry and a ginger desert. Everything was awesome! I personally loved the ceviche and short rib - it was fall off the bone perfection!

One of the best places in Toronto - never disappoints. Highly recommend the Chefs Menu for $55 as there are a handful of dishes I can't choose between, plus with the tasting menu proportions, we're always walking home with food. Lastly, the service has always been incredible and surpasses expectations.

Service and most food was excellent. Love the curry scallops but would have liked more scallops and the sweet potatoes where not cook. The mint curry was delicious.

Rickshaw is our favorite restaurant!! We aren’t from Toronto and continually make the trip back just to go to Rickshaw. First off, the ambiance is amazing. Whether you’re going for an everyday dinner, a special occasion or spontaneous drinks and apps at the bar, Rickshaw has the perfect atmosphere. The service is FANTASTIC. Every person in there makes you feel welcome and is so so kind and engaging. Each time we go we do the “chefs menu.” Upon bringing each dish to the table the server would describe each dish perfectly. And finally, the FOOD. The food is spectacular-really only one way to put it. Every dish is packed with flavor. We have gotten new dishes every time and have never been disappointed. We love love Rickshaw and plan to go anytime we are in town.

This is my fourth time to Rickshaw this the last year. Living in Richmond Hill, its a drive to Queen St but well worth it.
Chef has changed my perception from eating good food to a sensory dining experience.
Cant say enough good on how Chef blends so many spices and textures to create something so unique and savory.
Highly Highly Recommended!!

We had a great time but one of my friends was celiac and while the menu showed some of the items were gluten free they were in fact cross contaminated. It’s not okay for the menu to display something that is not true.

I have been to Rickshaw now several times, the food and service has been outstanding each visit.
The Chef creates dishes that are spectacular from both the unique combination of spices and ingredients as well as the presentation. I would rate Rickshaw Bar as one of the better restaurants in Toronto!!
Lastly if the opportunity presents itself meet the chef , she is wonderful!!

We ordered most of the starters and 3 mains for a party of 4. Loved the brussel sprouts, chicken 685 and beef paratha taco. The mains were equally delicious! We tried the shrimp curry, whole thai fish and lamb shank. The food here does NOT disappoint. I'd definitely come back! Also the service was phenomenal. The staff are attentive and knowledgeable.
