My wife and I don't eat Indian food very often, so I cannot comment on authenticity. I can say that the food was very good, with spice combinations that you don't get in other cuisines. Save room for the desserts, which are excellent. The price is not cheap, and the service was a little slow... read more

In Toronto for Canada Day on our way from Calgary to PEI. Stepped out of our hotel and followed the fabulous smell to the door. Food was delicious and staff very friendly. Highly recommended!

This is a relatively small intimate restaurant though groups are also attracted. This was our third visit ,this time following a holiday in India in some of their finest hotels and restaurants. This evening's dishes were on a par with the finest in India. Our initial waitress was personable and delightful but we then lost her. Despite that,the dishes we... More

We visited this place for dinner, based on reviews in trip advisor. The only good part was the wine, the food sucked and the service was worse. I definitely would not recommend this place to anyone. They call it fine dining, that's a joke. These guys have no idea fine dining Indian is meant to be, messed up the order... More

We love good Indian food and were excited to hear about 259 Host. Unfortunately, the night we visited it did not live up to our expectations. We arrived a few minutes before our 7 p.m. Reservation but were sitted immediately. Then it was as if we were forgotten. Our appetizers were slow in coming but delicious. We had the shrimp... More
