About Rick’s Good Eats

Rick’s Good Eats is home style Punjabi-Canadian cuisine, always with a fusion twist. Small batches, handmade, fresh ingredients, bold flavours.


This is the New Tradition.


Chef and media personality, Rick Matharu created Rick’s Good Eats as an ode to the immigrant experience. Flavours from Ricks’ childhood melds with his passion for comfort food classics that evoke a feeling of nostalgia. Since winning Canada’s prestigious ‘Recipe to Riches’ competition, Rick has been honing his craft and building a movement in Toronto’s rising food scene. With a passionate following of foodies, he has garnered acclaim as well as attention of notable personalities like Canada’s PM Justin Trudeau.


“In 2016, at the intersection of two cities, Matharu opened Rick’s Good Eats. His mom, Manjeet, came on board as a partner.
‘My mom has been the biggest inspiration for me in my life. She is the most talented cook I know and keeps me grounded,” Matharu said, ‘[She] is the spice queen. She understands spices like nobody else I know.’
Manjeet is actively involved in running the restaurant and cooking. Her main role is concocting spice mixes for a number of dishes on the menu. “ – Suresh Doss, CBC
