I really liked it, but since I'm not Indian, I asked some of my Indian friends their thoughts. They said that this is not 100% authentic, but pretty close. There are elements on the menu that are geared towards "Canadians", but all in all, it...More

Reasonably priced buffet lunch, fresh food, naan etc. Made for Canadian's- not spicy, except the curried goat, has a little, pretty good variety. Plenty to choose from.

The Host isn't the most affordable restaurant in the world, but it is worth every bit. The food is consistently flavourful. The portions are perfect... I never over eat. The Servers are attentive and responsive. I frequent this restaurant once every 3 months and I...More
