Cheers to your support!

When we first opened in January 2012, we weren't sure what to expect, mostly relying on "if you build it, they will come." To our surprise, our curious community was quick to embrace us. We began getting featured in local media such as and SNAP South Mississauga which gave us a little momentum. The latest to cover out quaint family business was the Toronto Star!

Today we continue to feel grateful to our community for all the support and attention, as well as to our lovely regulars who not only help us keep the tradition of the Russian Bathhouse alive, but provide the best company! To them we pledge to keep the Banya hot and our food authentic.

We have also been accumulating some heart-warming reviews! Read some of our favourites here.

    Great atmosphere. They really did it right. Wonderful owners. The russian sauna is nice and roomey. The cold pool can be a lil colder, tho, I like it with ice in it, so for your average goer it’s just the right temperature. Go here, you’ll like it.
