Had a reason to be on Ossington on Friday and ran in to Golden Turtle because of a downpour - enjoyed their pork spring rolls and "rare" (actually very well cooked) Pho - flavour was good. It's been years since I lived in that neighbourhood and the street is now full of restaurants I'd like to explore.
First thought - Union's website - it's all about them - menu says steak is served medium rare, so I guess if you prefer it a different way, too bad. There's no splitting the bill either, so all that hassle is passed on to the customer. So I'll take my hefty dining out budget somewhere else that doesn't treat customers with such contempt. What ever happened to the idea that a restaurateur's first and foremost task is to offer hospitality, as in "what can I do to make this memorable for you?"
Which places are good - but not loud. Or is that an impossibility on Ossington? I saw some good reviews of Mamakas in earlier posts.
