Great food and super fun and beautiful karaoke rooms. It's such a great way to spend a night - dinner and then singing your heart out with a group of friends. We loved it and ordered apps and drinks right in our private room. Servers were also super friendly. Great vibes and music when you walk in would definitely recommend. Only thing was the appetizer plates are really big and can feed more then the recommended 3 person serving size! OVERALL great feedback and had a really great night with friend!

A must visit in Toronto. The decor is very chic and has delicate cultural touches. Coming from China, this place definitely makes me nostalgic. The food was very authentic and diverse in style. It is also an amazing night-out venue with great cocktails. Will be coming back here again!

Great place for dates. My girlfriend and I went to Dasha with another couple and had an amazing night! The cocktails are ultra creative, the food is flavourful and feeling. The thing that stood out the most was the decor. Must see!
