I was ready to write a scathing review of this restaurant within about the first 5 minutes of being there. We arrived for a birthday party and made our way in to a private room. The decor is conservative - a place where an older generation will feel comfortable - not the young hip modern type of place. This was... More

Normally, when I hear the words 'butter chicken' I run a mile, because the dish often comes across like a faux-version of Indian food, an item served only to people who have never been to the sub-continent or naïve tourists. But here at the Prince Arthur location of the Host, it is downright awesome and we will definitely be back!... More

I wanted vegetarian and was recommended the okra / lady finger. Another veg. order was egg plant / aubergine. Then there were the essentials of meat, chicken, fish, rice and... More

We have been several times without booking and always willing to accommodate us! We nearly always have the samosa sampler between us it is very nice and not too heavy before our meal. We have tried chicken curry and the lamb curry dish always good! The last time we went we had chicken biryani and tandoori chicken and naan bread.... More

The place is located near university of Toronto. Has enough parking spots on the street. Restaurant itself is big and spacious. It was crowded even on a Tuesday. Food is good. We tried the kebab platter and it was good, but over priced. Butter chicken was okay nothing great. Mouligatwany soup was tasty. Best naan I have ever had.I am... More

Our waiter was covering 9 tables at once. We waited 15 minutes for him to bring menus, 10 minutes for the drinks (a diet coke and a cocktail) to arrive, 20 minutes for our dirty appetizer plates to be cleared, etc. The slow service was not acceptable and ruined the experience. The food was pretty good. The apps were the... More

We did carry out. We tried to do it on the web, but we couldn't register and save the 10%. However, it was still worth it. The food was flavorful with a bite, but not too spicy. we had one beef and two vegetable dishes. and the vegetable dishes had lots of vegetables in them. Not always the case when... More
