Had lunch at the India Village in Dundas today - we should have eaten at the Ancaster site with a friend currently living in Ancaster, but sadly they'd had a problem and had to close. A very friendly staff member directed us to this second site, and because of our friend's recommendation we chose to drive to Dundas rather than eating somewhere else locally. And we're very glad we did! Very friendly service, and a menu that shows a lot of thought rather than being just the typical collection of Indian dishes you find everywhere.
To start, we shared onion bhajis and potato and spinach pancakes. The bhajis were fresh and delicious (and plentiful!), and the pancakes came with chick-peas on top and were also very yummy. The meat main courses are served as a platter, unless you request otherwise; my chicken jalfrezi came with rice, a small side-salad and a small mild vegetable mix on the side. There was enough rice to share with my husband, whose vegetable curry came as a stand-alone dish. We also ordered naan; very fresh and crispy, with a delicious texture and taste. We were all asked how we would like our dishes cooked, which is an excellent sign. And we all left with food to take home.
Price-wise, the total bill was no more expensive than Indian restaurants we've tried in London, and the difference there is that we don't tend to have leftovers.
Excellent service as well, and the owner chatted with us for a while afterwards, which was even nicer. I just wish we lived closer to Ancaster/Dundas, so we could visit more frequently!
