The restaurant is located in an upscale neighbourhood, but the prices of this restaurant is really not expensive. I loved the warm welcoming atmosphere with candles and flowers on the table. The food was very good. First I had samosa's (to be honest these were not the best samosa's I've ever had) but then the main dish was simply delicious... More

First of all, thanks to TA, we found this restaurant in Yorkville. What a little gem! The restaurant is small, but very comfortable. We chose 2 chicken dishes as our mains. While we were waiting, our server brought out some lentil crisps with mango and coriander chutneys, delicious. When our mains came (we ordered naan and basmati on the side),... More

Indian food is not on my favourites list, but I would go back to Utsav any time. The service is good and the food delicious. Make sure to ask for mild food, because the regular dishes are extremely spicy. Also a great place if you are gluten-free.

I was expecting a great restaurant given all the raves on TA. What a disappointment! The restaurant itself is pretty and the staff are very welcoming. Portions are generous. The food, however, is extremely bland for Indian food. I can enjoy my Indian food either spicy or mild. However, I expect a depth of flavour from complex spicing, and Utsav... More

My wife was worried that the dish might be too spicy. The server assured us that if it was too spicy they would replace it with another dish. Who does that? What great service! The food was spectacular, we were lucky enough to get a table, although it was right at the door but I would go back and eat... More

We had an awesome dinner at "Utsav". It gives the real flavour of Indian Food with all the ethnicity and reflects the pure tradition of India.

this Indian food was as good as we've found in Canada; the Lamb Korma was particularly well done. Service was friendly, though a bit sow to start with. After a slow start the food was quick to come out of the kitchen and was really good - very flavourfull. We had a selection of several vegetarian items and a selection... More

Visited this restaurant on a trip to Toronto last year. Was staying at the Hyatt and after a long day didn't fancy walking far. This is in quite an upscale area so we thought we'd pop in as we didn't really know Toronto so didn't want to be walking round in an area late at night and get lost! The... More

A colleague and I were in TO near Younge and Bloor and were freezing and didn't want to walk far. We were excited for Toronto Indian, and the places that we were thinking of going did not get as good reviews as Utsav. Rightly so. This was exactly what we were looking for! Good food, average price, great spot! Nice... More
