Each meal is delicious but of course you pay for the ambience, the service, the location etc. 259 Host is the "sister" restaurant to The Host near Bloor and Avenue plus at least two other... read 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

We arrived late Friday night (9pm) after arriving in Toronto and were promptly seated and served. Service was excellent- attentive and friendly waitstaff. Appetizer was outrageous- home made mango chutney with some sort of cone shaped papadom. It was so good, I had seconds! I like spicy foods. My chicken tikka masala (not on menu but made by request) was... More

This restaurant is a gem !! My wife was visiting Toronto for the first time having spent 6 months in Florida and I asked her what cuisine she yearned for. Indian, she said. I went on Trip Advisor and liked the reviews I had read of 259 Host so I booked and we went last night. We think it was... More

This is a restaurant I frequented due to its location and the tastiness of the food. During the dinner occasion in mid-January 2015 with a friend, which we were both extremely satisfied with the lobster we ordered, I saw a promotion on the bill saying 15% off on takeout order placed before 6pm. When I needed to arranged for overtime... More

the food is just amazingly finger licking. The presentation is way above expectations. the ambiance and the service is great with the staff being very welcoming and friendly to you. It is totally worth the value you are paying for food. I chose the brunch menu out of which each and every item was mouth watering and finger licking.
