This was hands down the best Indian food I've ever had. We started out with Rosemary Naan, delicious! My husband ordered the Tamatar Dhaniya Jugalbandi soup said it was outstanding. I ordered my favorite Baingan bhartha which is tricky at a new place but their version was out of this world crazy good. Hubby ordered Gobhi Masala, outstanding as well. Another order of garlic naan with our dinners and we were in heaven. Food is seriously the best!

It is a must visit specially for vegetarians. Portion side is Canadian, so note that. Non-veg lot of options for tali or wrap as well. Value for money. Service could improve with more waiters asking in between as it is DT Toronto.

Exquisite lamb biryani, the best we have tasted worldwide. The hobo was just crunchy enough, with the small potatoes cooked just right but no peas in sight. Great chicken kasha’s. Best kulfi ever. Great food. Room felt too small. Ladies bathroom had no toilet paper. Small shortcomings made up by great service from Paras, and food by Assistant Chef Noel.

We enjoyed our meals. Though we have Indian food often we are still unfamiliar with many of the dishes. Our server was not forthcoming with suggestions even though we asked. The service was not as friendly as we would have liked.

Lose the carpet freshener smell as it is not appetizing. Hardscape floor would be much more appropriate for the price point and quality of food.

We had a really nice evening. The food is absolutely delicious and would highly recommend the food The only issue we had was that our main meal came before the appetizers. And one of the friends we were eating with I did receive her appetizer when we received our main entrée and did not receive hers until after we were nearly done. So overall, I love the food, but they do need to work on the order in which food is brought out

We went for Summerliscious. The place is a bit dark inside. I did like all the levels of seating. We were lucky that right after we sat down they asked us to move. Lucky because they moved us to a table overlooking the street. More light! Food was good. Loved the lamb rogan josh. The dessert was the biggest surprise. Have gone to many Indian restaurants before we do not really care for the rich sugary desserts but we enjoyed the ice cream and the pudding. They were very delicious. Naan was especially good too!! I did order a gin and tonic with a lime. The waiter said of course. He brought me a lemon instead and said nothing. When my husband mentioned it to him a few minutes later he said oh yeah we have no limes. Really!!!

I booked on my own and was put at a table in the bar despite asking to be in the main restaurant, so there was no ambiance. They served the wrong dish and I simply didn’t feel welcome. Food was good although chicken hadn’t marinated in spices and sauce which was a shame.

Nice friendly staff who helped us pick just the right amount of food without overselling. Excellent food - the Spinach Shammi Kebabs are a delicious starter. A good choice for a meal before a concert at Roy Thomson Hall.

Undoubtedly one of the best meals I had for a very long time. The fish pakora was delightful, and although I eat meat, I decided to have the jackfruit masala and I could not have made a better choice, highly recommended. Staff were friendly, professional and courteous. Overall, an excellent food experience.

Everything was great. The only negative (and it’s a very small negative) was that the restaurant was very warm due to the kitchen. I could have eaten more if it wasn’t so hot. The naan bread was awesome. It was made when you ordered it. Get some!!

Every dish we ordered was perfect. We invited a couple and the first thing they said is that they want to come back and try more dishes. We ordered chicken tikka masala, shrimp biryani, lobster dish, grilled chicken tikka, samosas, vegetable patties sorry cannot remember the exact names of our food but each and every thing was perfect.

While service was polite it was also a little weird. First we were sent to the 2nd floor. Once there they pointed at a table across the room where we sat. They did not seat us. They also did refill water during dinner at all, neither offering and forgetting when prompted.

Food was generally good but quantities of meat were small. This lowered the value making the mean over priced. We also had trouble with the Pagoda appetizer in that some of them were undercooked and doughy.

Location is nice but overall we were not happy with the experience here.
