Excellent food but very noisy
Wonderful food, delightful service. A great place for a special dinner
Outstanding experience all around. Staff were incredible.
Superb unusual food. Excellent service. Many thanks!
Loved the chef’s special menu
Lovely patio seat!
Best experience from start to finish. Everyone there goes above and beyond and the food is amazing quality for the price.
DaiLo’s food is an amazing experience that will wow even the most complex palettes. Arguably one of the best meals I’ve ever had in Toronto.
Best food I ever eat, I strongly suggest the Chef's choice.
Food was great and I appreciated that the tasting menu could accommodate my partner and I (I'm vegetarian). Definitely want to come back
Great atmosphere and such creative meals and presentation. Our waiter Geoffrey was amazing!!!

Amazing dishes, amazing tasting menu and sommelier recommendations and servers!
Fantastic food and amazing service. Try the chefs menu as you want be disappointed.
Great dinner at the bar! Drinks and chef’s choice were spot on, highly recommend!
Amazing food great service can’t fault it. Best to take the try out menu will come back for sure
If you’re looking for a date night or just need to change up your dining experience, DaiLo is the restaurant you’ve been seeking. My partner and I choose the tasting menu, after each first bite we were saying “oh my gosh” from how much balanced flavour was present. Highly recommend.
The only issue we had during our experience was a toddler that was screaming and banging chopsticks on the plates. It took you out of the experience when you there was a high pitch scream.
Our experience at DaiLo exceeded our expectations. The food was exceptional. Dynamic and ranging in flavours, the tasting menu was equally artful and delicious. That being said, the service was superb but painfully slow. At one point, one of the owners came over to apologize for the delay, explaining that there was a kitchen issue. Our server throughout the meal was charming and knowledgeable, however, we waited long intervals for our wine Glasses to be refilled and my husband hand to hunt her down when we wanted to place an additional order. Overall, the food, ambiance, courtesy, and attention to detail have overshadowed the service hiccups. We are excited to come back!
Outstanding. Amazing food and staff and service is exceptional. Low-key and food-centric focus, in a loverly environment.
Always wanted to try DaiLo ever since it opened; I attended there smaller pop-up location at Assembly Hall and was impressed by their quality and flavour. I decided to go to their main location and was not disappointed.
The servers took their time to describe each dish and how it's made with what ingredients, they didn't oversell and were honest. The food was amazing especially the Ribs and Burmese Tofu. The ambience resembled a hybrid mix of a french restaurant mixed in with the old school Hong Kong cafes in the 80's. Very well done.
overall it was good, the noise level was too high, the owners (like so many other millenial cater restos) have put a lot of thought into the decor, but NOT the acoustics.. we were havinging to speak very loudly to hear each other, even while sitting at the same table.
The food was tasty, inventive and nicely presented.. the salad was the only disappointment, being over-dressed and wet.
Service was attentive and informed. Well trained staff. 3.5 out of 5 stars.
Best restaurant I have ever been. The food and the staff were amazing. Each dish was an incredible experience.
Hands down some of the best food ive ever had in my life, with the BEST service i've ever had in my life. What a tailored and unique experience right off of the bat. It's fairly expensive but a must to experience.
Great chef’s choices. Brings back memories of home and family. Thanks for the experience.
We had been meaning to try DaiLo and after seeing Nick Liu featured in a marketing video we made reservations for Friday night. Although I can't remember the names of all of the dishes served with the Chef's Choice menu, all of the food was just spectacular and I highly recommend you experience DaiLo this way instead of ordering A La Carte. My family and I loved the concept of just having endless flavourful dishes come in small bites for us to experience. While the website says it's Hakka Chinese, we found the flavours was more of a mix of Asian fusion with Chinese, Filipino, French influences. What we ordered extra was the maple syrup infused Jackfruit pancakes with White Rabbit candy ice cream. That was just scrumptuous. The only negative would be the fact that I found the high top seats a bit uncomfortable after a while but other than that we would definitely go ahead and look forward to tasting all new creations the next time (hopefully that's how they do things).
Your food is delicious & unique. We have already made another reservation. If you are consistent we will come often because my husband & I eat out almost every day of the week.
Delish! Loved sharing each dish, 2 apps and 2 mains. Highly recommend the pea dumplings and wontons, ribs and cauliflower curry! Yum and yum.
Food, service and atmosphere was amazing. My only teeny tiny complaint was that it was pretty cold sitting inside. Nothing a sweater wouldn't have fixed. Will definitely be back again!
Best service from start to finish from bartender and rest of the staff that work flawlessly and effortlessly. And then comes the food. Bite after bite it kept on blowing our expectations. Highly recommend this restaurant.
Amazing as always
The entire experience was superb. Food delicious and good portion size. Excellent service with knowledgeable and enthusiastic staff.
Ambience charming . We had a banquet which was comfortable and not noisy .
Decor is fabulous and made me feel as if O was in 1930,S Shanghai .
A wonderful experience. Thank you!
Beautifully prepared dishes and beautiful service. I didn't feel rushed. I chatted with Nick and the other servers and just enjoyed my time. Amazing flavors and awesome dining experience. The entire wait staff is responsible for the entire restaurant so this equaled to timely meal, sense of ownership, happy smiling people who were all passionate about their product. Exactly what you want in your front of house. I can't wait to go back.
Food and service were both great! We ordered the Chef's Choice menu, and everything was fantastic. Furthermore, the restaurant was willing to make all of my food pescatarian, while my boyfriend got to enjoy a few small meat dishes. The value of the Chef's Choice menu was excellent, we got way more food than expected and certainly left feeling stuffed.
My only complaint was that even at 10PM, the restaurant was very loud, such that it was hard to hear our waitress and my boyfriend across the table.
Overall amazing dining experience. Lots of flavours and stellar presentation. Fantastic service.
Food was unbelievable. Service was otherworldly. Got an amazing table in the front window, felt completely pampered and taken care of the entire time. Truly amazing experience.
I've been to DaiLo before and it is consistently an amazing experience. The food is incredible and the service is outstanding. I highly recommend the main dish of the duck (plenty to share)
Overall satisfied. Meal was delicious and creative. Enjoyed it very much.
Get the Tasting Menu! Every plate, morsel and element were delicious and beautiful! We can't wait to return :)
Amazing food and wonderful service. A real treat for a special night out
DaiLo is just a fantastic eating experience. We always do the tasting menu and are never disappointed.
We tried the tasting menu. It came with around 8-10 courses. Every single thing we ate was absolutely delicious, the portions were great, and the servers were very polite and pleasant to chat with. Definitely worth the price!
