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.

This was my twentieth time and as always, the food is just incredible. Each bite is a flavour bomb and every single person I’ve brought with me has left fatisfied (not a typo — can’t help but eat EVERYTHING!). Just delicious, no better word to describe it. My favourite place in the city, hands down.

Always consistently good service and great food. The ambience is great and noise levels not too bad. The one drawback is the seating for dining is a bit tight. Overall, highly recommend.

I’ve been here so many times and it’s always amazing. I highly recommend the Chefs tasting menu and asking about the dress on the wall. Food. Service. Vibe. All amazing, every time.

Pretty great spot with nice ambience. Food is good but I preferred my appetizer to the main platter I ordered. I'd still definitely go back and try more on the menu.

We ordered the Chef's menu and were absolutely delighted with every entree. Each dish was wonderfully spiced with tastes that evolve and change in your mouth. Really, really excellent. Unfortunately we made the same mistake this time that we made previously - which was to not leave ourselves adequate time and tell them we were under a time constraint. In their effort to accommodate us the various dishes came somewhat faster than optimal. Again - this was our fault - when you go to Rickshaw Bar definitely get the Chef's Menu but make sure you have lots of time to sit and enjoy at a leisurely pace!

Server was not friendly. We were intending to stay for more drinks after our meal but were given the bill while we were still finishing up. The restaurant was not busy and there were empty tables so I’m not sure why we were being pushed out so quickly.

Our table went with the chefs menu which we found to be a great value. All the dishes were delicious and we all left satisfied and full. I would definitely recommend going with the chefs menu visiting.

Food was okay - a bit of a confused menu I would have to admit. The bartender nor our server smiled much and gave a mid level dining experience. The most hilarious part of our experience, which also helped in creating a very basic experience, was the Spotify Ads that played. I mean, the least you can do is purchase Spotify Premium account?

Food was incredible! Each dish had different flavours that were amazing. Chefs menu is highly recommended. Service was spotty because our waiter was slow to respond and not overly friendly.....otherwise a must visit restaurant.

We’d wanted to go here for awhile but with 2 young kids we don’t get out much. It lived up to our expectations! Probably beyond someone. Even the beer was delicious, and they were out of Barking Squirrel, which I was initially disappointed about. We had the chef’s menu and every course was very good. We would have liked more food, not because we were still hungry really but because it was so good! I can’t wait to go back!

Our server could have been a bit more friendlier or warmer than he was...afterall, you don't dine out JUST for the food, which btw, was AWESOME! a bit pricy, but still good.

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.

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.
