The Carbon Bar is a fancy restaurant with an exceptional fashionable dining venue featuring Texas-style BBQ. The leather seats and round wooden tables with red chairs are in the middle of this luxury restaurant. Moreover, the Carbon Bar is inspired by the flavours of Latin America and Texas.
The Pit Master Platter is total BBQ, including pork ribs, brisket, fried chicken, and turkey breast. The brisket has lots of meats and will fall in your mouth easily. Then, the KFC cauliflower is the right choice for starting your meal since it’s ultra-crispy, spicy, and delicate. Also, the fried chicken is very crisp and moist. After having the first bite, I guessed by the texture that it was brined in buttermilk.
The Carbon Bar is an excellent choice for a date night or special event. The foods are cooked in high-quality with innovative, varied drinks; Carbon Bar has ticked all the boxes!

They use handmade authentically extracted flavours and highly-qualified ingredients that make a delectable dish. Their food is served in large portions while offering a great variety of butter chicken, chicken karahi, chicken biryani, and many more.

I had butter chicken that came with rice, side salad, and naan. The salad was packed with natural cucumber, tomatoes, lettuce, etc. The chicken was grilled and cooked in the sauce, which added plenty of flavours. The sauce was special well-flavoured, and creamy, but it is amazing how it paired perfectly with the rice!

Kyoto House is a Japanese restaurant with hot entrees and sushi.
One of the cool things is whatever you order; your food will be served on a tray divided into some parts like those classic Japanese movies.
Of course, decoration and things like this are not as important as the food so let me tell you about it: Kyoto House will not surprise you with innovative items on the menu; instead, you would find the primary and regular items. They provide you with the typical, simple choices with an excellent presentation and high-quality (which I believe makes this place cozier).
The rolls are huge and fresh; so is the sushi. The portions are generous and shareable between two or three people. The rice is also well-cooked and can fill you easily.
In brief, Kyoto House offers the typical Japanese dishes of its highest quality featured their incredible hospitality.

They have Burgerrito, Triple Threat, Swiss Made, Damn Skippy, and many other delicious burgers. The Burgerrito has Grass-fed beef, avocado, salsa, sour cream, lettuce, and dusted onions. It’s really creative to have avocado in a burger. Also, the premium grass-fed beef is fresh, and you can taste the actual, chewy texture of the beef in the first bite. Besides, what makes their burgers more appetizing is the flavours they use, not to mention the massive fries’ portions accompanying every burger you order.
The jerk chicken poutine is filled with seasoned chicken and a unique, tasty sauce. Also, the hot dogs are as delicious as the burgers. Hot dogs are generous in toppings so that it is filled to the brim with toppings. Again, the massive portions of fries serving with hot dogs are thick and soft but hard to finish the whole plate!
