We decided to order in so we chose what we wanted from their website and called in the order. Their naan, eggplant, samosas and papadom was quite nice. The lamb vindaloo was also tasty but the meat was quite tough. Their delivery was quick and courteous. Will definitely order again.

My husband and I went there this evening and were pleasantly surprised at this little ma & pop restauran. The food was very tasteful and delicious. Not too spicy and you can tell the food is fresh. The naan was cooked to order and incredible.... I could have just eaten naan and been happy. However, my favourite was the Goat... More

Worst food ever. This is not indian food. Butter chicken is sweet and has ketchup. Egg plant is spicy Lamb Biryani is awful. Lamb is tough can't even chew it Better save your money cause this is the worst indian food ever and spicy for no reason. Probably to mask the awful spices and quality of food. Do not waste... More

Dined here for dinner at the buffet. Let me preface this review by saying we eat Indian food several times a week and we are very discerning. This is the best Indian food buffet we have been to in the GTA! The freshest ingredients, homemade quality, the food is outstanding! And at $11.99 this is also the best value around.... More

This place is always very clean, has the friendliest staff and the food is always fresh and delicious. My favourites are the Butter Chicken and naan bread, both of which are the best I've had in my entire life. The prices are nothing when you see how much food you get This place is definitely worth a try !

I've only ordered takeout from here, but both times my husband and I were pleasantly surprised! We ordered butter chicken, Beef Korma, Aloo Gobi, naan, pakoras and samosas. The samosas were some of the best we've had -- our 18 month old son devoured his. Ever since moving to the East End (from the west end), we'd been searching for... More

Staying in East York

Neighbourhood Profile
East York
East York includes a portion of old, industrial Toronto. Densely populated but incredibly safe, it boasts some of the city's earliest gardens and gardening clubs, attracting green thumbs everywhere. The tranquility of the Don Valley River area, which is rich with Toronto's oldest and tallest forests, is supplemented by the large ensemble of authentic and refurbished Edwardian homes, giving parts of East York allure. The other draw is for foodies: lovers of Bangladeshi fare will find authentic restaurants and markets in the area, with raw spices and desserts. East York also represents a lot of Toronto's Serbian food culture, and recently, has had an outcropping of solid microbrewery stops. For families, the science center is a favored weekend stop.
