Indian food is a funny thing. Either its really good or really bad! this place hits the nail on the head. My rule of thumb is when going to a new restaurant, order the simplest dish . If its Italian, order simple pasta with a tomato sauce. If its Indian order Butter chicken. The reasoning is this. if the chef has mastered the humble dish of that culture, he/she can cook the rest (this gauge has worked very well for me). Avani presents Indian cuisine in its finest form. All dishes are prepared well, not too much turns me off in this place. The home runs, Aloo ghobi massala, moong dal, chicken tikka massala, chili chicken, lamb korma, I could go on and on. The only dishes I do not like from Avani are the sizzlers. They come out smokin hot and sizzling but I find the Shrimp sizzlers kind of pasty. Nirvana in Brampton has the best Shrimp Hyriali and Shrimp shardil on the planet. That being said I eat here 3-4 times a month and I am never disappointed. Being of Italian background, I would eat Indian 10 to 1 over Italian food. Its my favorite. Some of my Indian buddies have laughed at me saying "it took an Italian, to bring me to the best Indian I have ever had". The Naan is always fresh, the chai massala tea is perfect, the rasmalai is warm and hints of caradamom make it delicatable. Lunch is very reasonably priced but dinner can be expensive. The Host, Bombay Bhel, Tandoori Flame, I wouldn't eat there for free, Avani is my gold standard, and cannot rave about it enough
