The food is always on point. The butter chicken and rosemary naan keep me coming back. It’s a quaint place with music in the background but not overly loud so you can still enjoy whoever you’re there with.

The restaurant is small with table placed closely together. It’s hard to have a conversation that’s not overheard. That’s the only negative. The menu is creative, with fusion and traditional dishes. The service was outstanding and the food delicious.

I am older so I just don't think restaurants aren't as intimate as they used to be. The food was excellent. We order the Poutine with the chicken curry, it was a big hit with my 13 year old grandson. We also ordered the Mussels in the coconut broth and it was delicious and then the Lamb Vindaloo with ghost chili. The food was all wonderfully seasoned and we enjoyed every bite. We tried a couple of Naan breads. This meal was thoroughly enjoyed. This restaurant will definitely recommend it to others and will visit again.

We came after watching the Try Guys eat here in their YouTube video with Lilly Singh. The food lived up to the hype and more. It was fresh and delicious, and the service left nothing to be desired. We were unfamiliar with much of the foods and he gave us a quick run down of the dishes and made it easy to choose. Any staff member we made eye contact with would smile and was pleasant. The only thing that distracted me while I ate the fantastic Chicken Tikka Poutine with Naan with my yogurt mango drink was the persistent uncensored music. I’d come again, but might have to request a clean playlist before I eat.

Loveeee the food. So good. We had the Chicken Tikka Masala and the Badass Chicken. Didn't love the yogurt puffs we started with , but they weren't bad. Butter Naan was yum. So good. Can't wait to go back.

I love the food. I do feel that this branch of Badmaash lacks atmosphere/character and that the tables are so close. However the food is delicious.

The food was good but I expected better. The samosas were delicious and cheese nana also spectacular. However the bone in beef barely had any meat on it and was super tough and the tikka masala - the stew was good but the chicken was also super tough didn’t seem like it was stewing for a while. The desserts were also delicious- overall nice place but I expected more.

A truly great Indian restaurant. Well-balanced but unique flavors. A nod to the traditional while doing something new...it's a fresh, fun experience in a trendy little spot a short walk away from The Grove.

I have visited the downtown Badmaash many times and this was my first visit to the Fairfax spot. Loved the location, super friendly staff and the simple and clean interior! The food is unbeatable and my fave (as a Canadian) is the chicken tikka poutine!

I’m extremely picky about Indian food and am always impressed by Badmaash. Yes, it’s fusion but there a definitely some very authentic dishes too. We had a very enjoyable evening.

Loved everything we got. The badass tikka, spiced lamb burger, both samosas, and Masala fries. They also had a great selection of beer, but they were all in cans or bottles and not on draft.

Celebrated Fathers here after attending a performance at a nearby theatre. They graciously accommodated us when we arrived a half hour earlier than expected. The food was fantastic. We shared the house made India Pickles,Dad’s Coconut Curry Mussels, the Fish Moilee( I could’ve eaten an entire bowl of this delicious sauce alone and been happy) and the Butter Chicken , all accompanied by Rosemary Naan and Basmati Pilaf. Everything was wonderful and made even better by Donald , who provided exceptional service and helped make this a place we will eagerly return to.
