A word from 309 Dhaba Indian Excellence
Winner of the Most Memorable Meal Award and other accolades, DHABA was designed by famous designer Brenda Bent, wife of world renowned Chef Susur Lee. Executive Chef P.K Ahluwalia, who recently filmed a TV show with Susur Lee for Food Network, offers a delicate mix of traditional and contemporary Indian cuisine styles. P.K.'s unique and individual approach of adding modern twists to traditional Indian dishes has been repeatedly praised as "Divine", "Innovative", and "Taste Intensive" by the City's top food critics. Dhaba invites you to adventure Prix-Fix Menus, Tasting Menus, Pre-theater Dinners or A-la-carte, pairings with creative martinis, and personally selected outstanding Vintage Wines to match the robust Indian flavors. In the words of CBC Radio anchor - Make it an event!Continued

Diner Reviews
  • "Good food and many selection to satisfy meat and veggie eaters."
    Dined on 3/20/2014
  • "I have eaten here three times in the last two months and it is excellent, really tasty food with great service. Try the Tandoori Lamb chops as a starter awesome."
    Dined on 2/18/2014
  • "Remember a time when restaurants just had to have good food? Ambiance was allowed to be a bit kitch as long as the foundation of food was good, the service wasn't offensive, and the location clean. This place reminds me a bit of that time; the stairwell, bathrooms, etc are in pretty poor repair. But the food is great. The service was spectacular and friendly, and my fussy demands were met with grace and consideration. I'll be back for sure, and this may even become my 'goto' take out place for Indian food. I quite enjoyed all the dishes, and left very full."

  • "P. K’s Rogini Chop is a must! As is almost everything else on the menu, it makes it hard to choose."
    Dined on 1/30/2014
  • "The lunch time buffet is very good if not up to the standard of the excellent food served a la carte in the evenings. (Nor would we expect it to be at the price.) Good selection and reasonably well replenished. Certainly a very reasonable cost so would go again."

  • "I had the experience of arriving a little early for my reservation. The staff sat me right away and immediatley had brought something to snack on for me and my partner. We had wonderful remail server ( I don't remember her name) who was very energetic, friendly, answered our questions with ease, and overall made the experience awesome. The food was delicious and i would highly recommend getting the Garlic Naan with your meal, its the perfect addition to the meal. Do not miss out on having some authentic, delicious, flavourful Indian food."

  • "Our favourite Indian restaurant in Toronto--Both the customer service and the food are excellent!"

  • "309 Dhaba is one of our favourite spots for excellent Indian food. Subtle flavours and ingredients that are different from the usual Toronto curries. Service is gracious and efficient."

  • "Found this little gem in the Entertainment District - My wife had the Butter Chicken and I had the Lamb Vindaloo both were among the best we've had. The Vindaloo was actually quite spicy which is the way I like it but you may want to give the server indications if you prefer yours milder. Ambiance was good - service was above par, noise level was in check and the room had just right amount of lighting. All that made for a perfect romantic dinner. We had a nice bottle of Pinot Grigio with our meal and it didn't break the bank - prices were on the affordable side, definitely good value for our money - I would highly recommend."

  • "There was food from various regions in India and that made it interesting. Really enjoyed the Kashmiri lamb."
    Dined on 11/24/2013
  • "When ordering many menu items were not available, seafood items in particular, and a few of the wines were also not in stock. Service wasn't the best - the waiter seemed quite timid, and the family-style appetizers could have been served a bit warmer. The entrees were nice and hot when served and half were quite good while the other half were just average. The naan and parathas were nothing to write home about."

  • "Excellent traditional Indian food prepared visually interesting. Plates arrived at table beautifully presented. Service was shared by several resources and that meant long periods of waiting for someone to appear (take order, remove food, etc). Will return for the food and hope the service is more consistent and attentive on next visit."
