“One of the best Indian meals I've had in ages....”
Review of Flavourz - CLOSED

Restaurant details
Reviewed 25 July 2013

We're a picky crew.

We live in Toronto, pretty close to Little India, and we're pretty picking about what we eat there. It's also filled with some pretty good Indian restaurants.

So, in Drumheller, I'd not be expecting to be eating great Indian food.

My mother said don't assume.

The place isn't beautiful. In fact, it's a little dreary, next to a Dairy Queen, and the decor is early industrial.

But the food is fabulous. Really.

The spicing is not just about hot, but about fabulous flavours. The chicken saag (chicken with spinach) was flavourful, the chicken tender, and not greasy, with flavours coming through.

The lentil dish equally fabulous. The tandoori chicken -- great flavour, moist, delicious.

And service?

We showed up late for supper -- at least late for Alberta supper time, and they were closing the kitchen. The server went to check to see if the kitchen was still open, and they held the kitchen open for us. Most every other restaurant would have turned us away, and we'd be eating at McDonalds.

So, service -- great.

Food -- delicious.

And really reasonable in terms of the final bill.

If you're in Drumheller, looking for food -- you should go.

Great place to get Indian food. Just like you don't go for steak at a pizza place, don't go for a burger here! This is a gem and experience the amazing food!

We got there at 8pm. Server took our drink order (milk & water). He came back 10 mins later w/ the drinks. Took our order (burgers, and chicken nuggets). 30 mins passed, and he never came back. Considering we were the 'only' people in the dining room, it was a long wait. We finally decided to take our food to go and explained it was taking way too long (we had a long drive before it got dark). The server wasn't curtious, got upset with our reaction and walked away irritated. A decent woman took over our order, and understood our situation. She gave us a 50% off discount, and was nice about the entire thing. We took the food to go, and it was very tasty. This restaurant is good, but ensure you have extra time to spare. :)

As an Artist, I have to mention that I like the fact that they allow Artists to display their work in their establiment.
