    Delicious layered flavours in the curries, and the fried cheese dumplings with cardamom were delicious. The naan was a bit on the crispy side, and the fried appetizers were a bit hit and miss (one was excellent; one was bland and nothing to write home about), but the curries and rice more than made up for it. Would definitely eat there again.

    The food here was decent but the ambience was like a room in which you receive a free hotel breakfast. The service was quite rushed and although I had intended to have dessert, the waiter appeared with the bill without offering an additional course. For a meal before an event at Rogers Centre, it was efficient, but it certainly wasn’t the kind of experience I hoped for on my anniversary.

    Food was good, some of the portions were pretty small for what you're paying. There wasn't a ton of meat in the dishes, but lots of sauce. The waitstaff were attentive but there was some pretty forceful dishes clearing. Tough to have a conversation when someone is loudly clanging plates together next to you.

    Excellent Indian food in downtown Toronto. Service was fast (as we requested to finish before the Mirvish production we were going to) and food was delicious. Service was also excellent.

    The food was delicious and the service was excellent. It's a very clean restaurant, but also very small, so I strongly recommend having a reservation. We found the prices high, but we're from out-of-town and figured Toronto prices would be higher than we are used to. There was a charge for everything from the rice to the naan and we're not use to that either. We would definitely go back again if we are ever in the area.

    The food was good in terms of taste but not at all value for the money being charged. The quantity is extremely small for the amount being charged per dish. Overall, it was nothing extra-ordinary.

    We were there at 9:25pm, 10 minutes after our reservation. And for my surprise, when we arrived the manager told us that the kitchen closes at 9:30pm. I really don’t understand why a place make reservations till 9:30, if you can’t eat there at night… Terrible! Very sad!

    My wife and I are both big fans of Indian food and, honestly, chose this place mainly because it was walking distance from our parking spot to Scotiabank Arena before a Raptors game. While we chose it on location, we're coming back many times in the future for the FOOD. Some of the best Indian food we've ever had, and we've been to India itself many times! On top of that, the service was attentive without being obtrusive and the setting was cozy, but modern and comfortable. With its location right near all the TIFF venues, this is bound to become our "go-to" spot before a night out downtown.

    I had high expectation for dinner going to this modern indian restaurant but it was not worth it. The food was average and the aesthetic of this restaurant compare to other restaurants in Toronto was not there for the price you pay. I will probably not be returning back to this indian restaurant.
