On our 5th day in Toronto we both fancied an Indian so we booked the restaurant on the way past and returned later that evening. My wife had a seafood style dish and I had chicken tikka masala. I would say the food was ok but not what we were used to and we've had Indian meals in many countries.... More

On a recent trip to Toronto we search for a nice Indian meal, on advice from the hotel we found a gem on Market Street. Upon entering Bindia we were greeted by attentive waitstaff who seated us quickly and took care of our every need. The food was amazing with good portion sizes. This is a family run business with...

We had lunch with our son and his wife. The bill away around $60/couple - no liquor. We ordered food to share. It was well presented, very favourful but not over spiced. The restaurant was busy but we were not rush. It was a very pleasant experience we will go again on another trip to Toronto.

Still gave it four stars because the owner (who was outgoing, friendly and very civil) seemed to engage all his customers. As other reviewers have said this restaurant may be geared to customers not overly familiar with Indian cuisine. Wouldn't call the food bland, but it had none of the biting flavour you come to expect from curries, et al.

While visiting Toronto we accidentally run into this nice little bistro. The place is modern with a small patio. Service was more than excellent! Food was delicious. We had the meat samosa (very crispy), butter chicken(spicy), chili chicken (hot!!!!), mint tikka (tasty with distinct flavor). Chef is a genuine guy that uses the herbs he grows in his backyard and... More

We are confused by the positive reviews for this place. Been here twice too many times. The tandoori/bbq eg chicken and lamb tikka and malai tikka are all bland and dry and tasteless- so disappointing. The chicken tikka masala has hardly any chicken and should be named onion masala - one can make it better at home from a pre... More

We have dined at this neighborhood restaurant on multiple occasions and have never been disappointed. Service is quick and efficient. Food portions are large and very flavorful. We started out with the coconut calamari, which was thick and meaty. My husband had the lamb Tika with Salad, where they provided a generous portion of lamb. I had the Shrimp Korma,... More

This place on Market St. is located in a great little enclave of restaurants and shops. The area seems to be newly augmented with relatively recent developments (as I was made to understand) and has been completely and pleasantly gentrified. This was my first visit to this area but the St. Lawrence Market across the street seems to have driven... More

This restaurant has tables outside on a small patio as well as inside. The staff is very attentive and they make good recommendations. The food is great and beautifully served. Be sure to try the appetizers. It is next to the Lawrence Market and after walking around there, you will feel like sitting and being served.

I really wanted to like this place since I live in the area and love indian food, but I think I will stick to Bombay palace which is closer to me and in my opinion a bit better. First off the restaurant itself is very nice and we were seated promptly upon arrival for lunch. the restaurant was empty because... More
