Everything is good, definitely tasty and they’re really fantastic if you have to eat gluten-free. Super nice and cautious. I’ve eaten several different things here and never had any reactions or problems from this restaurant ( Riz on Yonge). Thankful they exist.
This place is great! Very aware of gluten free diet. The menu had SO many gluten free options. As a celiac, I did not get sick here so there was definitely no cross contamination. They had awards for their gluten free certified kitchen. 10/10.
This was the highlight of my most recent trip to Toronto. Our server was a funny guy, but made sure we got to try lots of stuff and didn’t ever hesitate to offer us more food. I went with a non-celiac, who ordered off the regular menu but the server put it in as GF wherever possible so that we could share. The chicken spring rolls are the BEST, so save room to eat lots of them. They also had a lot of options for GF desserts, just be aware that they are not included in the all you can taste price. I had a deep fried banana dessert with ice cream and it was excellent! If you aren’t familiar with pan Asian cuisine, maybe do your research beforehand if you want to know exactly what’s in your food, because there are no descriptions on the menu, just the names of the items.
We had a wonderful meal here. Tried 8 things between 5 of us. Favorites included the mango salad, summer rolls and green curry. My 7 year old has celiac and a peanut allergy so I was thrilled to find a place on our travels to this area that could safely accommodate both so she could try more asian options! This visit was a highlight of our trip.
One of the greatest dining experiences I've ever had. The staff was wonderful and all the GF dishes came out on preprinted plates and bowls that said GLUTEN FREE. It was wonderful! Everything we had was delicious. We chose the GF Tasting Menu and were floored at how ample the portions were. I've never been so full in my life. I got to eat things I haven't had in years like... egg rolls and chicken noodle soup. They also handled vegan for my husband like champs. I cannot recommend this place enough. (Note: I'm writing this review the morning after we ate there and I didn't have any reactions to the foods. I feel great this morning!)
Staff is amazing. Especially the owner. They never fail to make you feel at home when you are there. It’s definitely on the upscale side but it’s my favourite restaurant. I go there by myself or with friends all the time. I have had celiac disease diagnosed 12 years ago and I am completely gluten free and have never had any cc issues at Riz on Yonge or Bayview. I Recommend the “riz popular crispy beef,” the name says enough.
As a highly gluten sensitive couple, it was so great being able to enjoy a safe meal at the Yonge street location. Since we never thought we would be able to have authentic dim sum again, it was quite a treat - the har gow and lotus pocket were standouts. In fact, we were so blown away that we had dinner there twice during our four nights in Toronto! Terry, the owner, was extremely gracious and went out of her way to make us feel safe.
Riz on Yong is a CERTIFIED Gluten Free Restaurant that is 100% SAFE for Celiacs but more importantly provides DELICIOUS dining options that are hard to find - like crispy shrimp tempura - dim sum and fried options! The TASTING menu is the way to go - suggested by our incredible and kind server Veronica - it allowed me to eat my way through the menu, trying a variety of items with out having to pick just one thing. TOP CHOICES: - shrimp tempura - because it's crispy! Hard to find! - coconot peanut chicken - creamy, smooth and FULL of flavor with no gluten OR dairy - used a coconut milk base - dim sum - delicious rice or bean based wraps - seaweed salad - because why not! - spring rolls - husband loved these, but I am not a fried food person, so these were not my favorite Veronica was attentive to my needs and checked in on me frequently offering insight on what to pick next CANNOT WAIT TO COME BACK - three hour drive was worth it!
loved loved loved the food here! I had the all you can taste Gluten free menu. it was amazing! it's just that everything comes out of the kitchen so fast, it's hard to keep track. thanks for the identified plates though! you just have to trust afterwards! but I didn't get sick, so I guess they really got this! they're also certified by the gluten free association or something like that. I definitely recommend!
The food here is SO GOOD. My husband is celiac and I am vegetarian and we struggle to find places to eat together in the city. (Though honestly the celiac is way harder to accommodate). They do serve food with gluten but have a completely separate kitchen for gluten free and all gluten free dishes come out on plates that say "gluten free" on them. I think we prefer Riz on Bayview to this one, because he loves the fried calamari, but it's pretty great to be able to find gluten free sushi (which they don't have at the other location).
Being Gluten Free for just 2 weeks after diagnosis with Celiac there have been many shocks, like finding out my local sushi place uses wheat in the rice to make it stick... Thanks to this app we found Riz and were shocked at the efforts they put in to support those of us with issues to gluten. Luckily it wasn't just an amazing effort to remove protect from gluten, it was amazing food, we did the taster menu and tried over 15 dishes that were all excellent. Thanks "Find me Gluten Free!"
Easily the most comprehensive gluten free menu in Toronto. The owner Terri has extensive knowledge of Celiac disease and has been working with the Canadian Celiac foundation for over 10 years. The food is absolutely delicious and your won't know it's even gluten free cause it tastes that good. The staff is very well trained and offers a gluten free sushi bar. You cannot miss the gluten free tempura. A must visit for anyone in Toronto!!!!
