“Great barbeque”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 6, 2014

Chicken tikka, paneer, Chooza chicken, Fish tikka, mutton/chicken chappati choose any and they are delicious any time! Hashmi is mostly full any day, so you always get fresh stuff. Weekends are particularly busy and on those days the restaurant decibel levels are high! All the staff from the counter to the waiters are friendly. Good food takes time to cook, so do not be in a hurry! Parking at the Ukay centre can be a hassle. Hashmi also does home delivery if you want to avoid the parking situation. It is one of my favourite restaurants.

“5-Star Food, Fast Food Service.”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 24, 2014

If you love spicy, Indian foods, then Hashmi will not disappoint. Sumptuous Chicken Tikka or Tangy Chicken Chooza, Well done Steak with an array of sauces to Paneer dishes all with a short wait time. On weekends, the restaurant is fairly full and you may end up waiting an hour for a table. Parking is also a challenge. Do not go in expecting five star service. A bustling, noisy environment with good food and great atmosphere for a family bonding.

Definitely recommend. Try it once, It just may become your favorite weekend hangout.

Never disappointed - great food! Parking can take awhile but it is always worth it. Great place to go with family and friends or even for take away!
