  • Love this place, although some of the food is a bit on the spicy side, so if you can't tolerate heat make sure to tell the server to tone it down. I love the shirmp skewer with rice (forgot what the exact name is) but the pasta, pizza and non-seafood dishes are just amazing too.

  • Order: Shrimp skewers with rice

  • A bit expensive for breakfast, so I usually go here for lunch. I love the portions, and the food is not oily or greasy at all. Pancakes are the best, but good ol' bacon and eggs are my favourite. My only complaint: why do they close at 4? Why can't they make it open later and make it an all day breakfast place?

  • Okay so everyon'e says the service is bad, but what do you expect at an AYCE place? Anyways, I don't go to Akita for the small talk with waitresses, I go there to eat Sushi. I love the sushi, rolls, maki, even the udon is wonderful. Overall, this is my favorite sushi place in the GTA.

    Lunch is around $12, while dinner is $25, the only complaint I have is they automatically add 10% tip to all bills and its pretty undeserved, but since I'm a regular I have yet to complain.

  • Order: AYCE lunch

  • I'm a big sushi lover and I usually go to Toronto or York Region just to get good sushi. I wanted to try something local and so I went to 168 for the AYCE, the cali rolls are okay but everything else is not the greatest. I had a small party at my house and wanted to order some rolls (mostly cali rolls and maki) so I decided to order from this place. I told the lady its for a party when I ordered, anyways my husband picked it up and I was horrified. I had ordered $100 in just rolls and expected everything to be on a platter - instead I got it in a bunch of starfone containers. I called the place and they did apologize but I don't think I'll be going there anytime soon!

  • Order: Buffett, Take-out Rolls and Maki

  • The best breakfast place in town, this place beats Cora's any day of the week. The portions are huge and they offer a lot of healthy choices which is rare for a breakfast place. The only complaints I have are to do with the atmosphere - the place is tiny and you will not get any privacy. Its also a bit pricey, but well worth it.

  • Order: OJ, Coffee, Pancakes, Bacon and Eggs

  • The food was pretty good, but I have to say I was surprised when I received the bill. It turns out our server charged us for three ice teas (we only order two) - well it turns out that they charge you for each and every refill you get. I've never been to a restaurant where you were charged for a refill for a non-alcoholic foutain beverage. Strange....anyways, the waiter was proper but very cold. I don't think I'll go back there again.

  • Order: Penne alla Vodka, Steak, Ice tea

  • Great food, especially the Kaboobs and naan. The price is great, and it always gets super busy Friday to Sunday nights, so you may have to wait for a table but its worth it.

  • I use to work here, and I have to say I'm amazed by people complaing about the price. For the $3.99 breakfast (1/3 of what they charge at Coras/Flipps) you get three eggs, a big portion of home fries, toast, and one meat portion (bacon, sausage or ham). To my amazement, people would complain about the price of this! What more do you want for four bucks? Anyways, when I worked there most people were very nice (90%), but a few (10%) would constantly complain. For example, I had customers who complained b/c they would get 3 large pieces of sausage with breakfest, when their friend/spouse got 4 pieces of bacon. Well the reason is bacon is thinner/cheaper than sausage so you get a bit more! This is just one example ot the constant slew of complaints we'd recieve from the same people, who use to come each and every week. Other complaints included the food portion is too small (however the same people would leave half their food on the plate) or its too oily (for the bacon and eggs). Hmm, I always thought bacon and eggs at a dinner isn't exactly a healthy choice.

    All I have to say is the food and kitchen is very stainary, the owners made sure the cooks cleaned it three times a day or more. However the way we employees was treated was less than humane. I had a customer who threw her sausages at me after I tried to explain to her that she was suppose to get three pieces with the breakfast. I've worked at many part-times jobs while in uni, and waitress/server is the most difficult and stressful. Its been years since I've worked at GT, but I occasionally go back for breakfast or lunch and the prices are the same despite the inflation and increasing gas prices. I'd admit the service isn't strong, you do have to go up to the register, order food and then the food is brough to your table. But think about it this way, by doing this the owner doesn't have to hire as many waitresses, and you the customer don't need to leave a tip - the savings are passed to you. Where else can you get a decent breakfast for $4, lunch for $6 and dinner for $10?

  • Order: Breakfast $4, Lunch $6-8, Dinner $10-12

  • The food here is great. Best kabobs in Brampton, and the rice is amazing. I ordered chicken kabob dinner and it was under $10, i got a big portion of chicken, rice, salad and warm naan. My husband ordered soltani and he got lamb and beef kaboob, rice, salad and of course the wonderful naan.
    A great place to eat in or take out.

  • Order: Chicken Kaboob Dinner, Soltani Dinner, Naan
