351 Danforth Av
Excellent food, located in the heart of the Danforth, near Chester subway station, this place has succulent, affordable dishes in a comfortable, relaxed, non pretentious setting. The owners work there and give fabulous service. Customers never feel rushed. The food is fresh and flavourful. I always get channa (chick pea curry) and aloo gobi (cauliflower and potato curry) and they are so delicious, I usually clean the dish dry. The entrees are about $7.95 to $10.00 each and the only problem is that the size is SO small that you will need to buy many and everything is “a la carte” which sucks. Toronto does not offer many “table d’hote” dishes, meaning “everything included all in one price.”
There are nice art pieces on the wall and unlike some East Indian restaurants, the art is not kitschy or cheesy. The art is exotic and beautiful and some are non paintings (some are relief art, photographs, embroidery, quilting, etc.).
The owners are very nice and work at the restaurant with other waiting staff. Complimentary home made rice pudding is served after the meal. The bottom line: The food is fabulous but either go if you are not hungry because the portions are tiny or be prepared to spend at least $40 for two people.
