We were in Toronto for a week visiting from the UK and were missing our curry! So we visited this restaurant but left disappointed. The depth of flavour we are used to when visiting Indian restaurants at home was sadly lacking. The place was somewhat tatty and in need of an injection of both flavour and redecoration.

Went out for dinner on Sunday evening, no one was at the door to direct is to a table. Awkwardly waited for someone to acknowledge us and then we decided to just walk in. Friendly waiter came over offered us water and menu. We went ahead and ordered appetizers and our meals. The apps. came out in a timely manner.... More

Popped in here for dinner with my husband, and we were not disappointed. We shared a starter platter which was very nice. I had the Butter Chicken which was so tender and very delicious. My hubby had a lamb curry, can't remember the name. The food could have been spicier, and if we return we will ask them to kick... More

My wife and myself were walking down King Street and got a waft of Indian cooking which immediately set our taste buds into drool mode, the lovely smell was coming from Aroma restaurant which led us to trying this establishment. Seated very quickly without a reservation and perused a menu which was different to the normal offerings we are used... More

This place has a decent lunch time buffet, the only downside is that it shuts by 3pm. However, it is a great place to get a bite to eat.

This is a great place to eat at in the Entertainment District area of Toronto. The service was quick and the waiter was friendly and helpful. Every dish coming out of the kitchen looked appetizing. We had pakora, chana masala, okra and garlic naan as vegetarian options, all tasty and light without too many oils. They had a nice large... More

I had the chance to eat my lunch there in april and I have to say I am not impressed. It is average in quality and there were not much choice of desserts. In mu opinion, more variety of rice and desserts should be there. Anyway, it was an okay lunch.

Enjoyed pakora followed by chicken tikka masala, butter chicken, nan bread and rice all with a couple of kingfisher beers. Food was very tasty, pakora was enough for the two of us. Nan bread was so good we ordered a second one. Service was pleasant and quite fast. I'll be back the next time I visit Toronto.
