Reopened earlier this year, Salad King still attracts the crowds from Ryerson, Eaton Centre and Yonge Street.

Although conveniently located, SK is not one of favourite restaurants because I find the noise really travels and have difficulty listening to the person I am dining with. Although I only like a couple of dishes, I do prefer SK more than Spring Rolls.
