Ordered a lamb biriyani and chilli crab which was really good. The chettinad beef was a bit tough but tasty. Overall great food and clean environment. It is a take out place rather than dining.

Delightfully delicious takeout lunch special, under $6 that is large enough to share. Whatever the decor leaves to be desired ( they are currently under construction) the food beyond makes up up. The chicken Tikka Masala is a must try. The cabbage salad, eggplant, chickpea and green pea curries make excellent vegetarian options. The fresh from the oven garlic Naan... More

This is my first time coming here and I often see their coupons through the flyers. I finally decided to give this place a try when my friend recommended... More

This is an inexpensive... More

First time I went, I was so surprised by the amount of food you got for the price. Basically 2 for 1. Everything looks hot and fresh. Only problem is... I have no idea how to order most of the time. 5 Samosas for $1 is awesome too.

Celebrated my birthday by buying a bunch of food from this place. The briyani rice was superb - lamb and chicken were both tender and moist, and huge portions too. They even came topped with a hard boiled egg! Also ordered the fish, lamb and chicken curries, the spicy mixed veggies, naan, and some va-de and samosas. Will definitely be... More

Kinda similar to Seinfeld's soup nazi restaurant - go in , know what you want, keep the line moving. A minor inconvenience to get good spicy and not so spicy food at a reasonable price.

Staying in Scarborough

Neighbourhood Profile
Scarborough
Situated astride Lake Ontario, Scarborough is a district heavily influenced by immigration. With a number of low-rent shopping and dining options making it a highly affordable part of town, and boasting one of Toronto's largest shopping malls, the otherwise green suburban neighborhood is a good place to go for bargains and discounts. It also draws in photographers. The spires, archways, and cavernous rooms of the BAPS Shri Swaminarayan Mandir Palace are filled with breathtaking art, architecture, and detailed reliefs – it’s like entering a different world, The ruins of columns and installation art at the Guild Inn makes a free-for-all exploration site, while the big-name draw for young photographers is the menagerie at the Toronto Zoo. While many visitors shirk Scarborough as too suburban, its houses are some of Toronto's most mystical and haunting architectural beauties. And for adventure lovers, it has river-rafting and some unique hiking trails.
