What Readers Are Saying:

This is a slice of life in a world of magic. It is literally a single night out at a restaurant. It is entirely world building and character development in the “gamers wish” universe. No major plot twists, no huge developments, just a nice evening out.

I loved it, but then again, I enjoy the ride. I prefer small stories over “the chosen one” and “save the universe” style stories, so this was right up my alley, plus the food was fun too! – Amazon Reviewer

A quick read that drops you into a world full of intrigue. The world-building is flawless and the characters all seem to jump off the page – full of life and depth and nuance that makes this low stakes story come alive.

This book is a novella that ties in with a series from the author, but I was able to enjoy the book and follow everything. If anything it made me look for potential backstories and clues everywhere as to what the other books were about. It added a feeling of people watching that made it even more fun for me.

This book is a quick read, but in a short period this book covers a lot: great recipes, multiple characters with full backstories and motivations, low-stakes drama. But I would say the best part is the general cozy and safety that permeates the book. It was a restorative hour reading this book, and I hope there are many more at this restaurant because I want to learn more about Mo Meng, Kelly, and their regulars. – Amazon Reviewer

There is a restaurant in Toronto.

Its entrance is announced only by a simple, unadorned wooden door, varnished to a beautiful shine but without paint, hidden beside dumpsters and a fire escape. There is no sign, no indication of what lies behind the door.

If you do manage to find the restaurant, the décor is dated and worn. Homey, if one were to be generous.

The service is atrocious, the proprietor a grouch. The regulars are worse: silent, brooding, and unfriendly to newcomers. There is no set menu, alternating with the whim and whimsy of the owner. The selection of wine and beer is sparse or non-existent at times, and the prices for everything outrageous.

There is a restaurant in Toronto that is magically hidden, whose service is horrible, but whose food is divine.

This is the story of the Nameless Restaurant.

From the bestselling author of The System Apocalypse and A Thousand Li comes The Nameless Restaurant, a cozy cooking fantasy perfect for fans of Travis Baldree’s Legends & Lattes and Junpei Inuzuka’s Restaurant to Another World.
