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.

Service was attentive and polite - server waited until we had finished speaking, not interrupting a conversation. Food was incredibly flavourful - I recommend Chicken 685, sesame brussels sprouts, and the lamb shank - all were incredible!

Amazing dinner, as usual. I’ve been here with girlfriends, and brought my husband for our anniversary dinner, and it is so perfect both both occasions. Amazing service, creative menu, and incredible value. Would recommend to anyone.

Male server was a weirdo! Taking menu before I was even done . I thought he needed it for another guest then tried to put it at the back of the seating area . I'm like ummm.. I'm not done with it yet . Awkward . We ordered the civiche for $14 and you get one scallop with 5 chips . What a rip off . The chicken snack was very good however . Our male server kind of ruined our time , power struggle about what the fried chicken was or wasn't . ( lightly fried chicken with house spices ) he didn't want to hear it . It was absolutely gluten free , lighting fried with different flavors . Lol . Whatever ! The civiche was very very small and the beef dish was very tasty but also on the smaller side . The Female waitress was amazing and made our dinner experience a lot better . I one be back . Food was good but super tiny for the price and we were made to feel awkward by the other staff member . Can't see this place having reoccurring customers . It's sad . The place is nice and food is good . But they need to relax on the prices and get let the weirdo go .

Service was terrible. Our server was so rushed that she ended up just picking a bottle of wine for us and didn’t ask us what we wanted. The scallop ceviche maybe had one scallop in it. Overall was not impressed.

There are very few restaurants where I choose to go back many times and this is one of them. The food is delicious, the staff are extremely friendly and attentive and the ambience is great. Would highly recommend Rickshaw bar!

Outstanding service and delicious food, traditional dishes presented with an original twist. Unfortunately we went on a Sunday when there is only a limited menu, but there was still a good variety to choose from.
At $80+ for 1 app, 2 mains and 1 dessert, no drinks, it was on the expensive side. but would definitely go again.

One of the best places I've eaten in Toronto. I don't actually think Toronto, for its size, has many restaurants with good food. This is one of the best, for sure. Great service too.

Really enjoyed the overall vibe at the restaurant. The staff were very friendly, the decor is on point and the available drinks are amazing. I particularly liked the Lychee Lassi for anyone wanting a non alcoholic option. The chicken paratha taco was absolutely delicious. I found the salt level to be much too high in the Chicken 685 as well as the Spicy Basil Duck but the flavors were still nice. Would definitely return to try more items on their menu.

Every dish had so much flavour! The tea leaf salad was very unique with all the different flavours and textures... delicious! The Chana bateta is also amazing! The perfect amount of spice with a side of warm naan. Definitely will come back here!

The food was delicious, scallop ceviche was amazingly tender and almost melted in my mouth, the chicken paratha taco had a wonderful mix of textures and tastes that moved tacos to a new level, wasn't so sure about the mung bean chaat salad but, again, the flavours and textures harmonized beautifully, and, the Burmese grilled chicken is a mouth watering reason to return! Service was attentive, but not overly so. Thank you!

First time at Rickshaw Bar, but it won't be the last.
I loved everything I had to eat, but definitely need to go back to try the rest of the menu.
Meatatarian or vegetarian, there's something for everyone in my group!

My husband and my in-laws from BC dined here on Wednesday May 30th for dinner, and we had a great time! We had a very nice table by the window, and all the food we ordered was jam packed with intense and delicious flavours and colours, the only thing we all agreed on was that everything was overly salted when it needed not be. Our male server was quirky and fun, the only jarring event that happened was that a female food runner or server who came to drop off more dishes, needlessly barked at my Mother-in-Law to hurry up and put the remainder of a dish onto her plate so she could take it away. Regardless if she took a little more time to do this than the average person, she did not deserve to have been snapped at so rudely. That is the only reason why I am giving three stars for service. Otherwise, thank-you for a fun evening!

Love Rickshaw Bar. This was the second time for us and it was just as good as our first visit. You MUST try all of the tacos!

It's fun to sit at the bar and watch the kitchen staff, or you can reserve a table for more comfortable seating. We'll definitely be back again soon.

We had a great time at Richshaw Bar! Excellent service and atmosphere, great drinks, etc - but the true winner was the food! We had the chefs menu and loved it. A selection of 6 or 7 dishes and each of them was sensational! It was plenty of food for three hungry people, so we thought the $45 price tag was excellent value. Would absolutely recommend and looking forward to coming back!

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.

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.
