As many have mentioned, this place has excellent food, but very limited seating. Invariably, if there are more than 3 tables of diners, the service falls off badly, as there is only limited staff. The take-out option is the best, and if you know what you're ordering, you won't be disappointed. Always excellent food!

My German husband and I tried Puspa after it was highly recommended by a neighbour. Although we aren't experienced in visiting Indian restaurants, we certainly know how to find our way around eating establishments so we, I, was a bit disconcened by our waiter's behaviour; he did not address me, look at me, or make eye contact. He even asked... More

We've been wanting to try this place for years - finally got take out. We ordered butter chicken, lamb curry, chicken vindaloo. When we got the food, we actually had to ask our server - "is this ALL three items? Is that it?" The portions were so small - everything fit into sauce/soup containers (for comparison, a small soup in... More

I have been coming to Puspa with my family for more than 20 years and each visit is more delicious than the last. Lunch combos are excellent value for money and there are many delicious options for dinner as well! My favorite is the sag aloo bhaji.

My co-workers and I love trying out new restaurants. We were very excited to give Puspa Restaurant a try. We ordered the Butter Chicken Lunch Box which did not include naan. For what we received in quantity, it should have been half the price for the Lunch Box. We will not be returning.

Love the Indian food here. My favourite dishes are the Butter Chicken and Kashmiri Chicken Curry. Been going here for years. Usually get takeout because the room is pretty small -- and service before has been hit or miss.

I don't have a great deal of experience with Indian food so when I was invited to dinner, I was a little nervous. The food was terrific! We had butter chicken, beef korma and sag aloo bhaji. The bhaji was a potato dish with onions and spinach. To die for! Very tiny place so you might have to wait or... More

I don't have a lot to say about this place as I am no expert in East Indian Cuisine however we thought the food was very tasty. We previously heard that the service can be really hit or miss however the night we went they did a great job. Regular subtle rotations to our table ensuring we always had our... More

I was not at all happy with my last visit. The staff absolutely did not care about their lack of customer service. Don't go and save yourself heartache and heartburn.
