“So glad to find Indian food this good!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 20, 2012

Although some Indian restaurants do an amazing job of some dishes, we had yet to find a place where EVERYTHING we ordered was amazing - but we finally found it! Sure, the decor (and ambient music) leaves something to be desired, but the food is well worth it. The meat was perfectly cooked, the sauces were amazing, and the naan was excellent. The palak paneer, especially, was the best we've ever had, and my mango lassi was a wonderful treat.
Hint: Every other Saturday night there is Bollywood karaoke and dancing. Apparently, it's quite the event!

“Sub par quality and bad decor.”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed August 14, 2012

We really wanted to like this place...as we are DESPERATE to find a good restaurant in Scarborough. But we were very disappointed with the food ( our waitress was nice). Our chicken in the butter chicken and vindaloo was either extremely fatty or undercooked. All I know is it was unedible and my stomach gurgled for days afterwards ( and not because we aren't used to the spices, we eat indian all the time and love the spice). Everything was just average tasting...except for the butter chicken which I swear was made from a can of campbells tomato soup and some cream...it tasted exactly like that. The naan was good, and the glass of wine generous.
I hope they spruce up the joint and tweak the menu and up the quality of ingredients!! It is seriously outdated.

“Best Indian food in the city - no exaggeration!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 1, 2012

We went to the Pavitra Restaurant for dinner on August 1, 2012. The food was delicious, (the lamb was the best we've ever had) and we will definitely be back! We ordered: garlic naan (these melted in your mouth and had just the right amount of garlic), butter chicken (yum), lamb karahi (incredibly delicious: tender with just the perfect amount of spice), rice and vegetable pakkoras. The atmosphere was relaxing and the staff was attentive and friendly.
All three of us agreed that the food rivaled that of even the best Indian restaurants downtown! We are so glad to have discovered this little gem in Scarborough!
