Don Don Izakaya
130 Dundas St W., Toronto, ON M5G 1C3
A couple weeks ago my sister invited her boyfriend, my other sister, me and the Mister out for a little get-together for drinks. The plans changed a bit so that we ended up having dinner instead, but we did order drinks too (with the exception of me because I forgot my ID at home). She suggested we go eat at Don Don Izakaya, which was a great idea since none of us has ever been.
Before I go on, I will tell you now that we all agreed Don Don Izakaya gets two thumbs down. The service was so slow and the food portions were ridiculously small- I mean really small (don't be fooled by the angles of my pictures). Everyone literally felt like they were just tasting samples of food and I never once felt the slightest bit satiated (and neither did anyone else). The prices for each dish was not justifiable for what we got. A lot of the prices were unbelievable for something so petite and not that appetizing either. In my opinion, if the food portions are going to be small, the very least I expect is for the food to be mouth-watering to justify forking the money over for it. As you read, just compare the price the food.
Overall, my experience with Don Don Izakaya is pure disappointment. The food was not that good, the food portions were unbelievably small, the food is overpriced, and although the staff were nice and friendly, the service was super slow. Our total bill came to $143.83 for 6 people- $87.89 for food; $39.90 for 6 drinks. This is the first and last time I'm visiting Don Don Izakaya. I wouldn't risk another chance when I know Guu is just around the corner. At least at Guu I could justify the price because the food is mouth-watering and I actually got full.
