It is called Indian Bread Bar

We ordered a Lamb Jalfrezi and chicken Korma. Both were very good. The sauces were made ahead of time and when you choose the meat, they just add the sauce. Korma sauce was very rich.

This place is near my work; so I got a groupon for it. My friend and I went on a Tuesday and saw a sign that it was closed on Tuesdays; there was no mention of this on the website. I did try to call them up on numerous occasions, but their voice-mailbox was always full - I started to... More

The restaurant was almost empty when we arrived still the waiter wanted us to sit in dingy corner near the noisy kitchen. The food took long to come- the roti was just uncooked flour. The waiter was unapologetic for the mishap. They even made us wait over 5 minutes to pay the bill. We had to go to the counter... More

Went on a Thursday evening. Restaurant was fairly empty. We were greeted and seated immediately. One page menu which IMHO is a sign the chef has a narrower focus and generally equals to way better food. Server was generally attentive and made good suggestions. We had a couple of the curries and tried a couple of different naans. The garlic... More

We live in the neighbourhood & have visited Amaya Bread Bar many times over the years. The standard of food was always high, although somewhat overpriced. So I was pleased to find a $20 coupon online for a $40 meal. When we arrived we found the name had been changed slightly to Indian Bread Bar. As soon as we showed... More

AMAYA BREAD BAR One of several outlets under the Amaya label, this is the least expensive. It is in a busy part of North Toronto, and parking is not always easy. The ambience is poor, and the lay-out of the dining area somewhat awkward. A long narrow corridor with a table on each side should be avoided. Go straight on... More

We order the food from here at least once a month. The food is wonderful, especially the Chicken Tikka Masala.

We discovered this restaurant via a home delivery service called Just Eat and it's been our go-to place for indian take out and delivery ever since. The food is consistently fresh and exceptionally tasty. They will spice to taste, but I enjoy hot, my wife doesn't, and what we've ordered hasn't dissapointed either one of us so far. If you're...

Pros: - really delicious food; we especially loved the butter chicken and garlic naan - food was served stylishly, for example the basmati rice was served in a little pail - elegant decor - kind and attentive service Cons: - bathrooms are kind of sketchy and don't fit the rest of the restaurant - service can be considered a bit...

Staying in North End

Neighborhood Profile
North End
The North End is a nucleus of specialty food restaurants and shops, especially around its Mount Pleasant Village area. Frequented by antiquers for its numerous collectable shops, furniture spots, and oddity stores, the North End is a maverick of the quaint and quality. Vintage toy stores, accessory shops, and cinemas welcome perusers to step back in time, while the wide pedestrian squares and the large medical and business community inject it with a dose of modernity. With numerous cafes and Toronto's greatest number of independent booksellers, it isn't uncommon to see folks in this area at their leisure, reading outdoors and in eateries, and taking life a bit more slowly – even if it's only during their lunch break.
