“Understaffed”
Reviewed December 23, 2013

The food was good for what it was. Unfortunately, our server apologized a bunch of times for being understaffed tonight. Apparently that means that he can forget drink orders - he completely forgot a beer order. He never checked back to see if our food was okay. We went as a group of five and the most annoying thing was that once we waved him down to get our bill, he just assumed that we wanted everyone on one bill. The service overall was very disappointing.

“Indian food specialty seafood”
Reviewed October 12, 2013

It[a a fine and not expensive indian restaurant with something different: many meal with seafood.
So, they have samosa with seafood, lobster indian style, spyce scallops, etc.
Seaffos samosa is big and delicious,with spicy shrimps.and others.
They have vegetarian options and meat options, but what makes differen is seafood.
First class service and normal price.
Close to many restauransts and CN tower.
