I visited this place on my birthday with my husband. We ordered 2 curries, naan bread and rice. Quantity was okay but tasted great. Service is good as well. They also have a bar.

Went to this place on Sunday after our arrival in Toronto as it was near our hotel. Service was excellent and staff were friendly. Unfortunately there was a large party in the Restaurant and this may have affected the quality of the meal. The Chicken Tikka which we had was dry and almost cold. My roti was very crisp as... More

We visited tonight, no reservation but they managed to get us a table. It filled up quick. Service was prompt and friendly, the wine was nice. I had a lamb bhoona and my boyfriend had a vegetarian curry. I live in Glasgow, Scotland and we are absolutely spoilt with great Indian restaurants so maybe my expectations were too high. We...

This was our first visit based on very good reviews. We visited on a Saturday evening without a reservation and we were lucky enough to get a table. Service quick and friendly. We shared a vegetable pakora which was very tasty. I then had the chilli chicken together with a garlic naan. Wish I hadn't ordered the naan as the... More

We love trying Indian food while traveling and make it a priority to try some from every place we visit. This was a fantastic restaurant located conveniently near St. Lawrence Market. The service was great and we had no issues throughout our meal. The food was fantastic and the butter chicken in particular was delicious. We thoroughly enjoyed our meal... More

Had a great lunch at Bindia yesterday - Salads, Butter chicken, coconut calamari, wine and beer. Absolutely the best Indian food we have had in ages - great service and who could beat the chicken and fresh seafood with the St Lawrence market on the other side of the street.

Had dinner here with my wife and 8 year old daughter. Food was delicious. We chose 3 chicken dishes to share with rice, naan and stuffed parantha. Spices were adjusted so they were not too hot. Only downside was that we arrived a few minutes after many other diners it seemed so our food took a long time to come.... More

I agree with many previous reviews that the food is fantastic. The flavours and spices were amazing. The restaurant is small and modern with a small outdoor patio. We sat indoors but the room felt airy. The only downside was the service. The waiter was a "character", he was pleasant but quirky. He took our order but the food took... More

My wife and I do not eat a lot of food usually. We ordered two dishes: vegetable korma and chicken tikka marsala with one nan each. This was plenty for us. The food was very good. Service was good. We were there on a weeknight around 6 PM.

Staying in Downtown

Neighborhood Profile
At the heart of Toronto, Downtown is the destination for cheap eats and fast fashion. Cut through by hip and trendy Yonge Street, the vibe here is young, with a strong student influence from the Ryerson University Campus. As a result, the Downtown area is always in flux: undergoing the construction of new facilities, with fresh retail spaces and pop-up cafes. Home to Toronto's largest indoor shopping mall, a number of vintage cinemas, and a healthy nightlife centered on the area's Distillery District bar and clubs near the East End, it's both an easygoing daytime spot and a popular party place after sunset. It also features some of Toronto's best outdoor landmarks, including Yonge-Dundas Square and the Nathan Phillips Square: perfect for a concert, a skate, or a relaxing sit-down.
