The food was really excellent albeit smaller portions than I would have liked. But really very, very, yummy. Service was great. I will definitely return to eat there again.

Food was outstanding, service excellent. Elected to go 'medium' when given the choice of how spicy I wanted my meal; was pleased that I was offered the choice. Can't wait to go back.

Birthday celebrations, we had a reservation, the restaurant was bone-chilling cold inside ( was a cold day outside as well) so we asked for a table away from the glass windows and told they were all reserved for a couple of big parties- that obviously never showed up...
The food was excellent, delicious and good portions!
The younger male server was not properly trained and removed our dessert as we were still eating it without asking or looking at us...bizarre. The management was a bit lame and asked us if we wanted another dessert to go as by the time she came to our table we had already paid the bill- you’d think they would take that off the bill and just give us a new dessert to go with an apology.
Please it would be so nice to have “real authentic Chai” at an Indian restaurant and not a cup of something slightly warm that doesn’t smell nor taste like chai ( the female sweet raves about how amazing it is so we ordered 2 cups), it was terrible.
I will definitely go back because the food was absolutely delicious!

Coming from an Indian background, I thought this place would be a good choice to send my parents on a date night. Although the ambience and the location was good, the food served, turned out to be really of low grade. Was expecting better quality of food. Surprising to see that the restaurant has great reviews, I would give it half a star if I had the option.

We had a lovely meal with excellent food. It was great to be able to pick spice levels as different people in our group like different levels of "hot". I indicated it was quiet, and it was, but we were also there for an early supper at 4:30, so it was not busy at that time. Only comment is that it would have been nice to have Indian music in the background.

Bindia never disappoints. A comprehensive menu, delicious flavors and not overly oily. And the staff and owners are so friendly and will do what they can to make your evening enjoyable. We always enjoy our meals here and make it a point to visit when nearby.

Food was fantastic and not highly priced. Will certainly be back!

The Indian food was amazing. The chef sent us lamb somosas which were not in the menu they were a perfect compliment to the vegetable ones. The vegetable fritters were delicious. The butter chicken was tender and flavorful. An excellent choice.

My family of five had dinner at Bindia on Christmas Day 2019. The food and service were both outstanding. We wanted to try a bunch of different things family style, and the hostess/server was very helpful in making our selections. We ordered a couple chicken dishes, a couple veggie dishes and tandoori lamb chops. Everything was delicious, but the standout dish for me was the tandoori lamb chops. My wife loved the alloo gobhi. The ventilation in the restaurant could have been better, but they were very busy that night. Everything else was 5 stars. We will definitely go back the next time we are in Toronto.

When we walked in I told the server we made a reservation online he said they hadn't seen anything and we would have to wait while he cleaned and set a table. It felt as though they were getting ready to close and we were not welcome. The food came fast and it was ok, there was no music playing in the dining room and no ambiance. We watched another table walkin with a baby and go towards a table where they were asked did you need a table? They replied yes - I can understand why they walked in as there was no one a the front and all the tables were dirty. Will not return, not good enough food for the lack of care & ambiance.
