Everything we had was tasty. The service was professional and friendly. White table cloths lent some elegance. I loved the beer glass for my Kingfisher beer. But in the end it is ll about the food. Fabulous.

First time but not the last. Food was excellent but the service a bit slow. They have two types of butter chicken. We had the lower fat one and it was amazing. My only complaint is my standard one with all Indian restaurants I.e. Big...More

This is my favorite Indian restaurant and I have been going there for almost 20 years. It's a good choice for birthdays and other special occasions, so long as everyone likes Indian food. Real Indian haute cuisine (although there is a lot of meat on...More

A superb Indian dinner, with Seekh kebab, a grilled tandoori whitefish, and paneer, plus garlic naan and a Kingfisher beer. Superb.

Great food, great service and nice location. Their prices are affordable. Double check with your server how spicy your dish might be. It's better to reserve before going there, I was asked if I had a reservation; and I didn't, but luckily there were tables...More

Instead of the winterlicious menu for lunch, my husband and I opted for the buffet as it was a better choice. The food was excellent- so savoury and delicious. I don't know the names of the dishes we had, but we both thoroughly enjoyed our...More

Take their recommendations and they'll steer you right. Good beer and white wine and a nice ambience. Did the job.

The Host sets itself apart from most Indian restaurants with unique twists on traditional meals. The food is decadent - while not the absolute best I've ever had, it's definitely very good. The restaurant has a warm and inviting ambiance, and the service is good....More

A fairly elegant restaurant in the Yorkville district of Toronto, but the food is mediocre. I had barbecued chicken (forgettable), lamb vindaloo (better), garlic nan (very greasy), mango lassi (too sweet and not particularly good). The waiter was very nervous and quite messy. They charged...More

Etobicoke is a relaxed area along the Humber River.
It's saturated with green spaces and conservatories,
making it a premier destination for outdoor sports,
hiking, and nature walks. Its abundance of parkland
and lakes makes it a typical spot for fishing,
picnicking, and camping out, especially in warmer
months. The peaceful area is also enjoyed by families,
who appreciate its boardwalks and sports facilities.
