It's hard to be negative when the staff and owners care as much as they do here, so, I'll be nice. On entrance there was a strong smell of cleaning products, not exotic spices I expected.
The food is a fair introduction to Indian cuisine if you are a novice but it's best not to compare this restaurant to similar ones in Toronto, Winnipeg or Vancouver. We only tried 4 menu items so I won't imply that all choices are the same standard. The naan bread was good, no complaints at all. The biryani was relatively brand, not much spicing and the vegetables were much too soft from being cooked too long, likely from sitting after being cooked before the dinner hour.
Chicken Jalfrezi was good and the flavours well balanced. Shrimp Phatia was so overly sweet we could not eat it, almost no flavour beyond the sugar unfortunately. It is listed as "sweet and sour" but we only tasted sweet. Perhaps this is because it has been developed to please a palate crested on processed food extremes.
I was definitely given the impression we were welcome at this place but it doesn't have the food to bring me back, unfortunately.
