I don't like Indian food apparently, I might as well admit it, so my visit was not that pleasurable. My three co-diners do however, and they assure me the food is fantastic. I ordered something I can't even pronounce, let alone remember, but it was disappointing. It was on the Tandoori portion of the menu, and it sounded good, but it was literally a boneless chicken breast cut up into large chunks, placed on one of those hot metal plates laid in wood, surrounded by a miserable amount of thin pepper and onion slices. The description said it came with "vegetables" so it's a little misleading. And if you are at all adverse to spices, the "mild" options on the menu are still a little spicy (almost killed me). Despite the exorbitant price of the chicken breast ($18.99!!), there are no sides with any of the meals unless specifically stated, so you have to order them separately. My boyfriend ordered a side of naan bread ($7, ouch) with his meal which was much tastier than the thick dry stuff you buy in the grocery store. I can tell you from many many other people that the butter chicken here is apparently to die for. With his order of butter chicken, a side of naan bread, my chicken breast, and two glasses of water, our meal was $65, so eating in for supper is quite expensive. The restaurant website lists all the meals they serve, along with descriptions, and it does say fine dining, so I'm not all that surprised at the price, but you really don't get much (food-wise) for what you pay for. The decor, however, is beautiful, and is authentic through and through. The washrooms were quite clean and also nicely decorated. Despite my experience here, the restaurant does deserve a high rating because the man who served us was the best waiter I've ever had, the place is very nice, and (I'm told) the food is good, but only if you like Indian food haha. I also want to mention that I had the kheer for dessert, which was wonderfully chilled and is just rice pudding with almond slices on top. It was delicious!
