6 of us went for dinner on a Friday night with a reservation. Not busy seated promptly. Good service, acceptable menu choices and reasonably priced wine. Ordered 6 main dishes plus two orders of Pakora appetizers (lots and tasty) and two orders of naam, one garlic and one spinach and cheese. The spinach and cheese was the preferred choice. Mains...

We have eaten at this North Indian restaurant a few times, and the food has always been delicious and the service friendly and efficient. Our latest visit, on July 9, was no exception. There were four of us, so we were able to enjoy a few dishes, including the vegetable samosas, garlic naan, a lovely fish curry, and a couple... More

Haven't had the chance to dine in, but on several occasions have had some take out. Butter chicken, really good...both chicken and veg pakoras really tasty...but my favorite so far is the calamari...an amazing experience, battered in an Indian spiced flour and deep fried. Really good. Looking forward to dine in.

I ordered lentil soup and a stuffed Naan with potatoes and spices. The food was good but the service was annoying and bothersome as the server kept harping on the fact that the minimum charge was $10 yet he told me it would not be a problem.

Our party of three enjoyed a very good chicken korma, Fish masala sauce and Lamb Rogan Jhosh with traditional accompaniments of naan bread, rice and bombay alloo. The food was of a very good standard and was preceded by starters from which we selected onion bhaji and chicken pakora. The latter was excellent the former was a little bit like... More

We had a family meal with 5 adults and two children, and it was a great success. The mixed platter and aloo chat together with some naan started the meal while we waited for our mains. We ordered a number of lamb, chicken, vegetarian and seafood dishes - they all were very good. My favorites were the lamb korma, prawn... More

When I tried to use a Groupon I had purchased for lunch at this restaurant, I had the worst experience! The male server (manager/owner?) said that I had to order both rice and naan bread as extras, above and beyond the main dishes we had already ordered (these totaled more than the Groupon value, so I was already willing to...

Our B&B Breakfast host referred us to this restaurant. (Greystone B&B, 2006 West 14th Ave). We enjoyed a very friendly greeting by our waitress and she answered all our questions with lots of knowledge and passion. We ordered several appetizers and entrees (mostly vegetarian) and all of them tasted divine. The whole dining atmosphere was worth while every dollar we... More

Four of us went for dinner at Akbar's and ordered a mixture of dishes requesting medium hot spice and it was all great. The service was the best I have seen in a long time and the quality of the meal was superb. The biggest surprise was the bill............it was so reasonable. will return many times.

Staying in South Granville

Neighborhood Profile
South Granville
The neighbourhood closest to the airport, a generous mix of locals and tourists populate the area. The blend has made it a go-to spot to find an eclectic collection of entertainment, from theatres and cinemas, to antique stores and last-minute kitsch souvenir shops. It gives off a transient vibe, and is one of the more higgledy-piggledy areas in terms of what you'll find, making it a fun area to explore and map out, all while taking in the hectic atmosphere of people coming and going, while others look for the best ways to spend their last few hours in the city.
