Great Tastes, Wonderful Staff

We looked at the menu and chose a few items and the very helpful waiter kindly asked if he could help us with our choices. He ended up recommending dishes we had not chosen. All were excellent. A great experience.

I have had the pleasure of going to this restaurant a few times and it has never disappointed me. The place feels homey and cozy, the staff is friendly and willing to explain the menu to you, although sometimes on busy nights they aren't as attentive as they could be which isn't their fault. It's hard to go wrong with... More

This was recommended to me by my husband as he had visited a few.momths before when he was in the area for business. A mix of south indian and Sri Lankan cuisine - a unique combination that you would find very very rarely. Friendly owner/host whose recommendations you should blindly take.. The beans curry was something that I would have... More

We were invited to dine with our friends here last Saturday, and while it looks like a diner in strip mall from the outside, the inside is cozy, well decorated and the staff are very friendly. We left the menu selection in the hands of our waiter and have a very good mix of dishes that were well spiced -... More

We arrived on Valentines Day for dinner without a reservation. On a busy night we had a little wait before they seated us at a smaller table apologizing that a larger table was not available as others were lingering over their meals, and I can certainly understand why. The food was an assortment of wonderful favors with just the right... More

Went here based on a colleague's suggestion for dinner. There were 6 of us at the table and we could not decide what to have, so we had them just bring out an assortment of dishes for 6. It was fantastic. The spicy beans were out of this world, although I fell in love with a caramelized onion and pulled... More

Great decor, great staff, great food quality. A bit spicy for sure, but worth it! Great menu options, wonderful masala dosa. We have been several times, so dates listed are approximate (and probably prior to the options offered).

This was the third restaurant in my neighbourhood that I took my son to on his recent visit. He lives in Montreal and the restaurants there are often very good. We arrived after a short walk from my apartment to find that the restaurant is covered in construction material - looks like the apartment building above is having some work... More
