This place is right round the corner and I love Indian food, the tikka masala is absolutely delicious as is the tandoori mixed starter and the raita is always great ... The tikka masala is medium spiced but with a really aromatic after taste ... Brilliant

Have been going for years and had felt that the restaurant had been declining in the last few years. We would still go every so often to check it out, but had begun looking for alternatives. They have recently renovated, (including a spiffy new website), and the food is much better and the interior is much nicer. Bar seating at... More

What it says. Such a shame. We always enjoyed it. Although this was not one of those all-you-can-eat buffets like in Little India Bazzaar, the food was a notch higher in terms of quality. This was the only restaurant featuring authentic cuisine from the sub-continent on the entire Danforth strip. Sniff. I am done. The end.

The Sher-E-Punjab is one of the Danforth originals and also one of the best restaurants anywhere. I say that having been to India a couple of times, as well as Europe, the US, Asia, Latin America, etc. The Sher-E-Punjab is now in its second generation and just underwent a stunning renovation that not only takes it to a new level...

A great menu but not consistent in terms of either the food (both the quality and the portions) or the waiting staff

A little more expensive than what you will find in Little India but the food quality is excellent along with the service. Good assortment of dishes and the naan is outstandingly fresh. Wine selection could be better but what they have is basic and not too over priced. The rice pudding is amazing, if you're not too full in the... More

Toronto has so many excellent Indian restaurants. This one only satisfies in an emergency. The menu has a good range but the food is unremarkable.

Went here on a risk, I'm snobby with Indian food and generally not a fan of what most Indian restaurants pretend is 'Indian' food. So, based on reviews I decided this restaurant was worth a shot. I was pleasantly surprised. The decor place was pleasant using earth tones, service was prompt and food was served quickly. We ordered the palak... More

More westernized than the East Indian restaurants you find on Gerrard East, but that's not always a bad thing. Great for take out, and when they forgot the dessert my wife ordered they asked for our address and delivered it themselves. Service can be slow, but they are always eager to please.
