Since 2019, we have brought the magic of Haiti to Toronto.

Boukan restaurant offers an in-dining Haitian Caribbean fusion food experience, located in Greektown Toronto. Founded by Haitian Torontonians Amir Senat, Ricardo Province & Marc-Elie Lissade, the goal of Boukan is to express the rich culture of Haiti and creole cuisine to Toronto, presenting Haitian street food in a more fun and unique way.

Our history is an important part of our culture and so we also would like to have that translated as guests come into our space. You will experience the positive and energetic vibes of Boukan.

Our style of cooking magical flavours captivates Torontonians & visitors in town. Our niche product, Fritay, are fresh to order and organic, where possible; to ensure Boukan flavours stay consistent. The food is presented in a very colourful and artistic way; and the restaurant is very warm and inviting, to make our guests feel “an at home” & welcoming vibe.
