Ordered from the main menu, food arrived quick and was very tasty. Very reasonable prices too. Can recommend if looking for some good Indian cooking in the Halifax area

I ordered two of the lunch specials to take away. I had to wait 35 minutes for the food. While waiting some customers arrived, were seated, ordered, were served, ate and left. Not good. Will not be heading back any time soon.

We brought home a range of tastes and offerings that ignited our taste buds and infused the room with the scents of adventure. Was thrilled to enjoy the offerings of this restaurant in... More

On the 5th of March 2017, we decided to try Dhaba Express Restaurant in Bayers Lake, Halifax. One of our reasons to go there was that we had a $ 40.00 gift card (whose receipt was attached to the card). We had our Sunday brunch from 12.00 pm to 1:15 pm. The food was mediocre and many of the ingredients... More

Finally real Indian take out in Halifax. We have now either eaten in their small restaurant or ordered pick up. I have never been to India. I have been privileged to eat at what were to be excellent Indian restaurants in England and most importantly in the homes of families from India here in Canada. Dhaba is so good it... More

We had heard a lot about this place. It looks pretty grim from the outside as it is in strip mall. Don't let that stop you from going in, the food was fantastic and fresh. We will go again soon.

I have been here a few times out of convenience. The food is okay. They use way too much oil and salt. If you mention anything about their food they say that they have been voted the best Indian food by a local paper for a few years so its probably not their food that is the problem. Their biggest...

Was working in Bayers Lake and a colleague recommended. Several of us went for lunch. It was well-appointed and service was quick, considering it was lunchtime. Had the Meat Thali, which was good. A little pricey for lunch, but I would go again given the chance.
