Description: Little Indian restaurant with home-made delicious food is a great find. Large portions of hearty food served at great prices.

A small place which is very popular which sometime means a bit of a wait. However, the wait is well worth it. The food took 10 mins to arrive after being ordered and it was great. It is all fresh and perfectly cooked. You will not regret your trip to this little gem. Very reasonably priced.

Very decent Indian, which I expected to me much more expensive than its location would have you believe. The lamb curry I had was tasty and the naan were perfect. Remember to order rice if you want it, because it doesn't come with the dishes unless you ask for it.

Another highly recommended restaurant by the hotel hotel that was dwarfed by a much larger Indian restaurant just above it. It's one of Toronto's little secrets that you'll miss if you blink...

The service staff seemed a bit indifferent initially but eventually lightened up as the evening carried on. Pity they only serve beers but when the food did arrive, we forgot everything and just tucked in! Everything from the Chicken Tikka masala starter to the Papads (amongst others) to the main course Butter Chicken and mutton Vindaloo, were scrumptious!!!

The chef seemed thrilled when I congratulated him on the impeccable cuisine that we devoured. A word of caution for those with a weak stomach, do ask the kitchen to seriously dial down to the spice. Otherwise, knock yourself out!

Utsav is a quaint little find situated in the Yorkville district. It's a tiny restaurant, owned and ran by a family. The restaurant's menu, however, contains a wide variety of Indian specialities such as Butter Chicken, Tandoori Chicken, Naan, Channa Masalla, to name a few. In respect for the Hindu religion, there is no beef on the menu but one doesnt actually miss it since there are so many other dishes to choose from (eg. lamb). The service is attentive and the food arrives quickly. The Naan is "milky" and is one of the best in town. Another must try is the Malai Prawn -- jumbo prawns cooked in a cashew nut sauce -- and the Roasted Eggplant dish. Reservations are recommended due to the limited seating. They deliver to the surrounding area and this is useful during the winter times ... even if you are staying at the nearby Four Seasons and feel like authentic Indian cuisine. You wont be disappointed ... it's better than the other Indian restaurants around (I believe this is not part of a chain like the other Indian restaurants).

We went to this restaurant because of the positive reviews and we were glad we did. The food was delicious the woman waiting on us was fantastic and was really great and helpful with our kids, telling us what dishes would be OK for the kids to eat and spice levels. I would have liked to see a separate kids menu and for the menu to state spice levels but it wasn't a big deal. I would definitely return next time were in Toronto.
