The people the food the atmosphere the experience all 5 star. I am a returning customer. Within a few visits I attained a regular status feeling. Just like home but they are nicer than my own fam haha but seriously the fact that the food is produced start to finish in house is quite evident. The kebbeh unlike any I have had before. The lamb shank on sundays is unreal. Served with freekeh. It’s honestly as if you went to their home and then they just made you some food that is delicious and has the family secret. They haven’t just taken Syrian foods and dumbed them down for North Toronto. Ohh and the desserts holy f*** they’re good ... love this place indoor or out it’s a comfy scene much recommend More...

A gem of a restaurant hidden on a sidestreet. Great food. I had the falafel platter - 6 of them with a nice salad & humus & very reasonably priced. Stop by the food is great. North side of Manor Rd, just a little east of Yonge St. More...

Best falafel I've ever had in Toronto, although I've had even better ones in Washington DC. Moist and well spiced. Thought I waited a little long to place my order. Great atmosphere, pricing is reasonable. Will definitely come back with my friends to try their fatteh. Did not go for that this time because I wanted some salads! More...

This small Syrian restaurant has a great selection of tasty food along with fantastic service. The prices are very fair and the portions were very generous. The parking on a Sunday evening was $6 behind the restaurant. The Fatteh was my favourite. They do dinner and a show some evenings for $35, which was a great combo. Thank you! More...

Charming, cozy Syrian place tucked off Yonge on a side street. Delicious daily specials with uniquely Syrian flavours of lemon, cumin, zatar and sesame. Try the chickpea dip with fried pita and pomegranate seeds. Service is warm but can get overwhelmed by lunch rush. Never hard to flag someone down in the small dining room though! More...

Went today with the kids and it was very nostalgic to eat food from my birth country. The Syrian tea was very delicious as well as their shawarma plate (just like we used to make it). I hope it can grow and expand in the future but for now I like it small and cozy with their nice Arab music that I used to listen. Will be going back and highly recommend this cozy restaurant. Not to mention their staff are very friendly and have excellent customer services! 5 stars ⭐️ More...

Delish food, lovely ambiance and great service. We ordered Fatteh (Chickpea, yogurt and pita); Kebbeh labanyeh (rice cooked in yogurt with beef meatballs) and beef shawarma (pita stuffed with paprika-seasoned fries and dripping with tahini, sumac and pomegranate sauce). All our dishes were very flavorful. Also the homemade dessert with Syrian tea went really well together. Small space holds about 28 seats, so making reservations on busy evenings is ideal. More...

Wonderful place. Small in size but the staff were very nice and the food excellent. Had the veggie kebbah (starter, filled with potato and other stuffing), fatteh (Chickpeas + yoghurt + pita bread + tahini) which was very tasty & is a MUST HAVE dish, baklava (walnuts and pistachios, yummy!) and another dessert called ''mom's favourite'' (semolina with pistachios, made by the owner's mother). Definitely recommend this place. I'm surely gonna go back again! More...

30 December 2018

We stumbled on this place while heading somewhere else for dinner, and we were pleasantly surprised we stopped here instead. I had the Fatteh which was just incredible - an explosion of wonderful warm flavours and textures in your mouth: bitter and creamy tahini, sweet and juicy pomegranate, and crunchy pita bits. My girlfriend had the lamb/rice/peas which was much more mild-flavoured but still delicious. The staff were happy to talk to us also and tell us about their business. They cared about how we enjoyed our meal. Missing the 5th star because it's a bit cramped and cold without shelter from the entrance door but food and staff were 5/5 stars. More...

The decor is lovely and the food is very good homestyle Syrian cuisine. A perfect neighborhood joint. We had the sample Hawader large, but found it to be more "medium" than large. I would suggest heating the pita for all guests. My partner had the Fatteh and loved it. I tried it also and found it to be delicious! Finally, we shared the lamb shank in rice and it just melted in the mouth. Yumm!It's a beautifully conceptualized restaurant with great food. I do find prices to be on the high side and think there is room for improvement in pricing. I also have to comment that the lovely girl working weekend brunch was at a disadvantage once the place filled up because there were too many people to be served and cashed out by one person. Overall, this place is a gem. It stands out because it's authentic. Will return to try other things! More...

Delicious comfort food that is affordable. The atmosphere is very low key and relaxed. The food was cooked (and served) by the very friendly owners. We were lucky that they weren't very busy so we were able to place our order and get our food quite fast. Not sure what rush hour looks like. In any case, the food was super tasty. Will return! Note that they do not serve alcoholic drinks, so if you want to enjoy a glass of wine with dinner, you can grab food to go. :) More...

This is my favourite restaurant in the city. You don't need Canoe or Byblos or La Banane to impress your foodie friends - bring them to Zezafoun for the best food in Toronto. Plus, when a huge main course is only about $12, you can return several times a month guilt-free. The ingredients are incredibly fresh, the owners and staff are the sweetest humans, and the setting feels like eating in someone's home. When the weather is nice, the patio is perfect for catching some sun. Everyone walks out of Zezafoun with a smile on their face. I'm so glad you gals are in my neighbourhood! More...

The experience at Zezafoun was beyond my high expectations. I ordered the Chef's platter, which was one of every specialty dish server that day. My friend and I were amazed by the hospitality we had the pleasure of receiving, also how well versed the host was in explaining each dish passionately with detail. Will be coming back! More...

Okay, I am obsessed with this place. I love trying new cuisines and Zezafoun certainly delivered! I've never had Syrian food before and was incredibly satisfied by my first meal here. I tried the mahashi (so yummy) and the meatball stew. It was so good that what was supposed to be two separate meals ended up being one massive lunch! I have no regrets. And bonus: the service here was tremendous. The family is super friendly and welcoming! I look forward to trying more traditional Syrian meals and their delicious looking brunch on weekends. Zezafoun is a very welcome addition to a neighbourhood overrun by sushi and Italian spots. Welcome! More...

This place is the definition of family run. The original crew is a Mother and two Daughters, they really care about the food and the service. It's not many places that won't saves food to guests that they feel is only ok.The menu is limited, but they stick to what they do well. As with a small place they do rub out of items, only because they are so busy. If you're planning on coming with a group, call ahead and make sure they have space.This place was a great find, I'll definitely be back. More...

The best Syrian food in town! And perfect service. I could not recommend one dish, as everything we've tried there is perfect. It's really hard to choose. The quality of the ingredients puts it above any other Middle Eastern restaurant in TO. You can see the care the owners have put in the details.The ambiance is cozy and friendly, and they really make you feel like you're visiting family. I can't wait for weather to improve so they can open their patio! More...

Really the most charming restaurant I've visited in a long time. It's in a fairly posh area of town, a couple short blocks south of Yonge and Eglinton. The vibe is very friendly and welcoming, with an bright and airy look that brings to mind the French countryside. The food is purely, genuinely Syrian. The two Syrian friends who were with me said it was the real deal, which makes sense since it's a family restaurant, with the sisters in the front and their mom as the main chef. How good is the food? They get walk-in customers by leaving the door open and releasing the scent of the main dish of the day - chicken shawarma, when I was there. There was also a steady stream of Uber drivers picking up bags for take-out, people coming to play boardgames, intellectual types from places as far as Egypt... and Oakville. The customers and energy changes over the course of the day, making it three or four restaurants in one. Worth a repeat visit for that reason, and for the food and hospitality of the hosts.The Syrian takeover of Toronto cuisine has begun. Enjoy it. More...
