“Good not great”
Reviewed May 30, 2014

This is a pretty good Indian joint, but I was expecting more given how often its mentioned in "best Indian food in Toronto" rankings. The naan bread was fantastic - order the garlic type. The chicken tikka was not what we expected (maybe that's our fault) and we found it dry and a bit bland. It's a quick drive from downtown Toronto.

“very tasty”
Reviewed May 10, 2014

We took our friends out for dinner and really enjoyed the food. Had butter chicken, goat, lamb rogan josh, naan. Very nicely done, vegatables wonderfully cooked, great spices. Definitely would go back again. Really big menu too. Only problem was the enclosed patio was very hot and muggy (not sure anything could be done about that). Service was decent, but I didn't feel warmly welcomed. Could have been a busy night. Will definitely go back.

“Best Indian Food in Toronto!”
Reviewed April 24, 2014

We get delivery from here all the time. We are not living in Toronto now and we miss it soo much. It can be quite long delivery time on weekend nights but it is worth the wait. Every other indian food we have had pales in comparison.

“Great food let down by delapitated premises!”
Reviewed April 6, 2014

While my wife and I thoroughly enjoyed our food we are unlikely to return any time soon. At least not until we know Banjara has undergone some serious renovation.
Great food and friendly, chatty service was let down by dirty sitting and stains all over the place.
In reality more like three stars (but the food saves the fourth star).
If you do go, wear grubby clothes.

“Dependable and Good”
Reviewed March 29, 2014

Have eaten at Banjara several times over the years, and twice in the past week when we stayed close by. The menu provides a good range of meat, seafood and vegetarian dishes at reasonable prices, and the service is quick and efficient. The restaurant is large enough that you can usually get a table, even on the weekends. Rating of very good means just that, probably not be the best Indian restaurant in Toronto, but you will not be disappoint.
