Hands-down, the best Vietnamese food in Niagara Falls! Their service is extra-friendly and their dishes are full of flavour and freshness. The restaurant is family-friendly and big-group friendly, as well. It'll cost about $15 per person and the portions are generous. Parking is free!

Absolutely the best Mexican food in Southern Ontario! The owners are such friendly people and they really put a lot of effort into making their food magnificent (the portions are magnificent, as well). They serve all the expected Mexican fare; such as burritos, burrito bowls and tacos in beef, pork and chicken. Their salsa is mouth-watering and their food is fresh. They also sell Chinese dimsum (order this ahead, as they need time to steam it fresh). The place is takeaway only, but there is a huge selection of Mexican and Asian groceries/snacks/drinks to browse when you go in. Expect to spend about $11 per person and expect to be full!

One of our favourite Japanese restaurants in Niagara Falls! The chefs are really Japanese (unlike many Japanese restaurants in neighbouring Toronto)! The food is delicious and even if you don't like sushi, there are plenty of cooked options. Expect to spend around $25+ per person.
