Thumbs Up is a Korean restaurants in a small plaza on Pharmacy and Sheppard. The place itself might look small from the outside but it's rather large inside and seating won't be an issue. They serve all Korean dishes with minor influence from others.

I ordered up the fried chicken thinking it was going to be like the Korean fried chicken you can get at places like Galleria and Home for Hot Taste. I was a bit disappointed to see that it was just their fried chicken coated in this sweet sauce. The dish was still rather crisp though and the chicken chunks were large, meaty, and just lightly sauced.

The side dishes are incredible and they refill them so quickly at your request. My gf got the spicy tofu soup and it was really good. I'm not big into stews or soups that arent meat based, but this tofu soup had so much flavor that I wish I had ordered that instead!

I feel as though I could have ordered something else and would have loved it, but such is life. I usually do a good bit of research before going to places, but my eyes always light up when I see fried chicken, especially at a Korean place. I really liked the little bit of my girlfriend's food that I tried, and service was quick and friendly.
