Best butter chicken!

My husband and I get the butter chicken here often. We've tried butter chicken from a lot of places but this is by far the best. Prices are reasonable for what you get. I can't give this restaurant 5 stars only because I don't think I can base my whole score on 1 dish but I have to be honest,... read more

Halifax lacks budget restaurant choices that offer real food. Gracious Indian is an exception. For $7.99 you can get a proper meal that consists of main course, rice, and samosa.

I was really hopeful that Gracious Indian would help me staunch my frequent Indian food cravings inexpensively but I was disappointed. I tried the butter chicken and it was... More
