good restaurants around commercial drive/kingsway?

Any recommendation around these two areas? Any type of food should be fine.

On Commercial drive, Havanas was good when I tried it a while ago. Falconetti's was visited by Diners, Drive inns, and dives.

If you're up for some Japanese, check out Kishimoto on the drive.

They do aburri salmon nigiri really well. And they have this unagi stone bowl rice dish. So damn good

Happy Family Restaurant on Kingsway & Gladstone (Beside the KFC.) The food and service is pretty good and doesn't break the bank. Family owned and operated.

Specifically on The Drive, I would say Biercraft is still pretty decent. Good selection of beer and tasty mussels..

I personally like Chili Pepper House by Rupert, comfort food for me, Green Lettuce is similar stuff closer to Commercial on Kingsway by Victoria Dr.

I was walking downwards to Clark to get some Japanese food from Fuijiya and came across Truck Stop Cafe. Pretty good food all day breakfast and burgers. Quick and friendly service too.

Oh god. That place is awful. Famoso across the street has substantially better pizza, and even that isn't great. Falconettis on the drive is pretty good for bar style food.

It's funny b/c it is a little greasy spoon diner that most ppl wouldn't even look twice at. I spoke to a few ppl and they all said the food is good there.

Craptacular service doesn't even begin to describe the horror of this place.

Fail-conetti's. Had horrible experiences last 2 times I was there (food sucks. service sucks). Much worse than Marcello's but even that was marginal at best (food was the redeeming factor).

I'm liking The Charlatan on the drive for food and drinks lately.

It's been replaced by I believe some shitty hipster take on what we would like to think is Mexican cuisine.
