The Maharaja is an incredibly stunning boutique restaurant inspired by the regal beauty of India’s diverse landscape of architecture and flavours. The concept offers a visual and culinary journey through three magnificent palaces of India and a menu featuring cuisine from four different regions in India. The storybook menu is divided into four regional cuisines found in India which have been influenced by various ingredients and flavours of a variety of countries including Greece, West and Central Asia and Persia. There are a number of shareable dishes and entrees highlighting the unique flavours of each region through Awadhi cuisine, classic Hyderabadi cuisine, Punjabi cuisine and Rajputana cuisine. The extensive menu caters to all palates and features distinct regional dishes presented on fine dishes such as copper bowls, slate boards, and copper table top grill.
Piatto is a long-standing Sauga gem that's been loyally serving diners since 1989. A fine dining resto on the ground floor of an old-style house-turned-spa at the corner of Dundas and Mississauga Road, the resto boasts an old school but lively vibe and is always full of regulars. The service is attentive and accommodating--something that keeps loyal diners coming back for more on special occasions. The menu reflects Chef Abramo Tonelli’s classical Italian cuisine, blended with a touch of French. Born in Argentina and of Italian descent, his daily blackboard specials are abundant in seafood options and other well-crafted selections.
Meadowvale Town Centre recently welcomed yet another brand new resto--and this one is associated with another casual dining hotspot that’s been happily serving the community for a few years. Social Eatery Winston Churchill is actually the sister resto of the bigger (and Mississauga-based) Union Social Eatery. Although the menu is different from Union Social’s, it specializes in the same casual dining fare consumers have come to expect from the brand. The menu boasts fresh cut bacon salt fries, Thai curry meatballs, spinach artichoke dip, chicken wings (buffalo butter or Gochujang honey), a bacon double cheeseburger, a grilled chicken club salad, Union Social’s famous almond crusted chicken tenders, cashew chicken curry, steak frites and more. So if you're in the mood for some wings after doing a little local shopping, Social Eatery is worth a look.
Supermoon Japanese Cheesecakes, a bakery that specializes in increasingly popular (and so very light and fluffy) Japanese-style cheesecakes, cheese tarts and bubble tea, has been serving its adorable Queen St. S. cakes for a few years now and for good reason--the desserts are absolutely delicious. Owners say the memorable moniker and cute logo were inspired by the fact that some people see the shadow on a supermoon not as a silhouette of a legendary "man on the moon," but a rabbit (hence the super cute super moon branding). The bakery offers original cheesecakes, chocolate cheesecakes, red velvet cheesecakes and special, limited-time flavours such as taro and Oreo.

Roman Zaman captivates you with an extra-sensory experience from the moment you step into the restaurant. It wows you with the vibrant palette of colours and contrasting prints and materials and the Middle Eastern music that invites you into the space. The Damascene cuisine menu includes both traditional dishes and modern takes on Middle Eastern cuisine and includes a number of cold and hot starters such as yalanji (vine leaves stuffed with rice, tomatoes, parsley, mint, olive oil, pomegranate molasses, tomato paste, onions, and crushed bell peppers), kibbehnayeh (raw meat dish includes habra meat, crushed bulgur wheat and spices), muhammara (mixture of breadcrumbs, pomegranate molasses, olive oil and walnuts) and chili potatoes (grilled potatoes, olive oil, garlic, parsley and coriander). You will also find soups, salads, shawarma platters, saj (middle eastern flatbread) and sandwiches on the menu. The kibbeh section of the menu includes beef, potatoes or helah (fried or grilled). The grilled portion of the menu includes charcoal grilled skewers (beef and chicken) known as shish tawook and kebabs.
