Top-tier delivery across Toronto

Sometimes searching for a restaurant that delivers in this city is like looking for The Holy Grail. Sure third-party delivery services have improved the landscape, but asking for delivery and getting a “Yes” is still a rare occurrence. Thankfully, we've done the work for you, separating the wheat from the chaff among the delivery options that do exist.

Peking Express

217 Parliament St, Toronto, ON M5A 2Z4

When was the last time you had a proper egg roll? Look no further than this downtown resto serving old school Cantonese like you remember from childhood. All the usual suspects are here: sweet and sour pork, ginger beef, lemon chicken and moo goo guy pan. It's a blast from the past served in all its shiny and gloppy goodness at penny candy prices (some dishes can be added for five cents if you spend a certain amount). While the location is a little sketchy, the delivery is fast and the food container lids become a plate. Wheelchair accessible: No.

Salad King

340 Yonge St, Toronto, ON M5B 1R8

This is staple haunt for students at nearby Ryerson University. The cafeteria-style seating puts people at very close quarters, but all the dishes greatly honour the tradition of Thai fast food made with care and fresh ingredients. May we recommend the mango chicken, or the breaded squid dish, the Sea Queen? Either option is a home run, along with almost every dish on the menu. All that's left is the answer to the eternal question – how many chillies? Try three to five for optimal spice. Wheelchair Accessible: Yes.

Barque Smoke House

299 Roncesvalles Ave, Toronto, ON M6R 2M3

If you’re looking to get some of the best barbeque in the city delivered right to your door, this is your stop. Low and slow is the name of the game here and that's how it should be. It's a modern take on southern BBQ where a giant industrial-size smoker carries the load. Optimal order: everything, but you can't go wrong with their sampler platter featuring two meats and a side. Bring an appetite and prepare for the meat sweats. Wheelchair Accessible: Yes

Frank's Pizza House

1352 St Clair Ave W, Toronto, ON M6E 1C4

What's a “Best Delivery” list without a pizza place? Luckily, Frank's is not just any pizza place. Family-owned and operated since 1965, Frank's crafts pizza the way they were intended: with tomato sauce and dough made fresh in-house. Each pizza is made to order with the dough cut and worked by hand each time. You can even pick up a bag of raw dough for a pizza party at home. Now, if pizza isn’t your thing, Frank's calzone is as big as your head (ranked #1 by BlogTO), and the pasta is hand-cranked and made fresh. Wheelchair Accessible: Yes

Fresco's Cuisine

201 Augusta Ave, Toronto, ON M5T 2L4

This fish 'n' chip shop has two locations – the original across from Kensington Park and the other at St. Clair West and Atlas Ave. Fresco's distinguishes itself thanks to a painstaking attention to quality. Owner Michael Fresco personally tested 300 potatoes before settling on the Ontario-grown Russet potatoes. Fresco's fish receives just as much care and attention. He uses only Oceanwise and sustainable fish, that he fries in a non-hydrogenated, trans-fat free mix of canola and corn oil. Fish not your thing? People also rave about Fresco's poutine. Wheelchair Accessible: Yes

Tabülè Middle Eastern on Queen

810 Queen St E, Toronto, ON M4M 1H7

Named one of the three best delivery options in midtown by Toronto Life Magazine, Tabule offers Middle Eastern standards we all know and love, (falafel, lamb skewers and of course, tabouli). The difference: they do it better than anyone else. Vibrant and robust, their menu features the most authentic and comforting takes on Middle Eastern classics; surely so they can hit us with their more daring and adventurous dishes. Free yourself from the falafel (it's really good, so we know it's hard) and try the kefta banadura. When beef meets lamb, it's a ground meat one-two punch. Wheelchair accessible: Yes

Wow Sushi

11 Charles St W, Toronto, ON M4Y 1R4

The brothers behind WOW take their sushi seriously. They brew their own soy sauce and fly-in fish direct from Japan. This is elevated sushi, not usually seen in Toronto. First of all, they get the ratio of rice to fish truly correct and the rice is flavoured properly, facets that other Toronto sushi joints often sadly lack. WOW Sushi not only takes Toronto sushi to another level, but delivers surprising flavours with the adornments the master sushi chefs dream up, leaving you with one three-letter word to say. Wheelchair Accessible: No

Madras Masala

796 Bloor St W, Toronto, ON M6G 1L7

Not to be confused with its next-door neighbour, Banjara Indian Cuisine, this server of South Indian specialties has 20 kinds of dosas on its menu and they’re all worth writing home about. The service is prompt, the staff is friendly and the portions are big enough that if you get delivery from here, you'll certainly be able to stretch your order to a second meal. Many regulars claim that the only place you can get better Southern Indian cuisine is in the actual region of India. Wheelchair Accessible: No

Brock Sandwich

1260 Bloor St W, Toronto, ON M6H 1N5

The only thing you need to know about Brock Sandwich lies between two slices of bread. Nine sandwiches (some vegan and all available on gluten-free buns) are all that's on the menu (alongside tasty sides like coleslaw, fries and salads), but nine sandwiches are all that’s needed to make magic happen. Everything about these sandwiches is big: big meat with big veggies, slammed between big buns. Bring an appetite because if you order delivery here, you're stomach will be full and, thanks to the reasonable price, so will your wallet. Wheelchair Accessible: Yes

BiteBar Desserts

57 Elm St, Toronto, ON M5G 1H2

If you're one of those people who has always craved dessert delivery, we're here to tell you that your prayers have been answered. Bite Bar is exactly what it sounds like, offering bite-size cupcakes, micro macarons and miniature cookie jars to anyone needing that little something sweet. Maybe one small dessert is not enough, so get the dessert packs and sample a bit of everything so you don't have to decide. It's just enough to satisfy your sweet tooth without the guilt that usually comes afterward. Wheelchair Accessible: No

Forget the fancy restaurants and crowded bars – for your next date night, try something completely different. Below is a collection of the truly bizarre and eclectic dining experiences Toronto has to offer, from a banquet feast among knights and damsels in distress, to dinner with a sky-high, 360-degree view.
With the success of Rhonda Rousey and the reinstatement of former UFC Light Heavyweight Champion Jon “Bones” Jones, the UFC has never been more intriguing. Fans excited enough to check out mixed martial arts for themselves will be pleased to know that there's a spate of gyms in Toronto to accommodate them. We've assembled some of the best gyms for mixed martial arts training in the city.
When you've overscheduled yourself, your world has gone crazy and you just need some time to breathe and take stock, there's nothing better than sitting in a darkened theatre and kicking back to watch a flick. Thankfully, the city of TIFF, Hot Docs, Toronto After Dark, and countless other film festivals, has some of the greatest movie theatres in the country to help you waste away in an afternoon matinée.
