Laksa is a new restaurant in Toronto’s Chinatown district. They serve mostly Thai food, but there is also a second, smaller menu with some Malaysian dishes.

I scoped out the place while on vacation and I was not impressed at all. With a name like “Laksa”, you’d think they’d be able to provide a decent Laksa dish, but boy was I wrong. The flavor was bland and very uninspiring. The fish cake appetizers that I order looked like they came from a frozen package. And to top it off, the table next to me had all sorts of issues with there food, from hair in their noodles to mysterious objects in their pork.

Skip this place at all cost.

Best Malaysian “cheap eat” in the city! and no they do not accept credit cards. Cash Only!

I can’t get enough of this place. The Roti Canai (Indian pancake – crispy style pancake & curry dipping sauce) is an excellent starter and the Asam Laksa (spicy & sour thick rice noodles served in chef’s special lemon grass broth with fish flakes & veg) and  Nasik Lemak (coconut rice flavored with cloves & screw-pine leaves, served with chili anchovy, pickle, curry chicken with bone and hard boiled egg) is amazingly authentic and very much recommended as your entree.
