Others went for full dinner and they brought me back a spicy dish for my lunch today. It is full heat. Naan was very good. Rice was quite dry and not as I would want but the vindaloo will soften it a little.

I went for dinner on a cold Saturday evening. As it was my first visit, the character-less strip mall location didn't leave me expecting much. I was pleasantly surprised when I walked in the doors at the cozy and warm ambience. My two friends and I shared an appetizer (paneer pakoras), garlic naan bread, butter chicken, beef vindaloo and rice.... More

Being a Friday and knowing that restaurants usually are busy, we decided to go out for lunch. As we are in the middle of winter with -10 C temperature, we thought a good curry buffet would warm us up. We decided on the Urban Turban, 591 March Road, Kanata, which had been recommended by some friends a while ago, arriving... More

Urban Turban has delicious Indian food, a quaint (semi-cheesy) interior, and a staff that is the kindest. A special shout out to some of my favourite dishes: the Shahi Paneer Korma, the Shrimp Pakora app, and the fresh house-made naan bread (it's amazing). Urban Turban has a family-run vibe (I do not know if it is actually run by the... More

Poor imitation of Indian food. No atmosphere. Buffet lunch not appetizing. Furniture not comfortable.

Ordered takeout from here for the first time in a while. Not our usual place, but we wanted to try something new. We ordered Onion Bhaji, Butter Chicken and Aloo Matar. The Aloo Matar and Bhaji were the best part of the meal. The Butter Chicken was not my favorite. The price was much more than our usual, for the... More

I often order out from Urban Turban and bring the food home. It is simply delicious! I don't really care for the atmosphere of the restaurant itself so I rarely actually eat in-house. The staff are friendly and the food is always good!

We had an Entertainment book coupon for 25% off total bill. Menu in the coupon book showed dinner for 2, 3, 4 for very good prices so we drove there (not close to our house). When we arrived, they sat us by the door on an extremely cold night (-20 outside). We felt a very cold draft even when the... More

We went there because it had dishes that are considered gluten-free. At least for the first visit, no one got sick. So if you have people who are gluten intolerant or allergic to shellfish, this might be a somewhat safer choicer than other restaurants.

I have been to many restaurants but this one shouldn't be on anyone's "to eat" list. Worst food quality meets worst service. Saag Mushrooms was the worse, first batch was all dried up and second batch has "canned mushrooms", this dish was inedible. I had to prevent my companion from tasting this dish. You can taste the poorest quality of... More
