Respond to Review of Cafe 668 Vegetarian Restaurant
Review: My girlfriend are not from Toronto but happened to be in the city recently and decided to try 668 since it got so many good reviews. First of all, the place was obscenely small and we were lucky to get a table. The decor really wasn't very good but hey, some of the best restaurants I know are ugly. Anyway, when we sat down there was only one menu for the both of us so we had to pass it back and forth. I didn't really mind too much but it's still kind of annoying. My biggest first impression was the smell of the restaurant. I almost instantly got a headache and felt sick. I did my best to overlook it and ordered anyway. We got a #7, pan fried dumplings. They were really good and I was impressed. We were also given complimentary tea and it was also good. I ordered the sweet and sour veggie chicken with soft noodles and my girlfriend ordered the same thing but with rice. We didn't wait too long for the food and our server was fairly nice. The food though was not very good. The sweet and sour sauce was really overpowering and sadly the food tasted like the heavy odour i first encountered. Also, the veggie chicken bits were perhaps some of the worst faux meat I've ever been served. My gf, who's not at all veg didn't really like it but that was for other reasons, such as she doesn't like veggies too much. All in all, it wasn't the worst meal ever but I don't think I'll ever be heading back there again. Maybe I'll try Buddha's next door or the Full Moon.
