Bringing his South Indian cuisine to Toronto has been quite a journey for Damu Renga. He trained in hotel management in his native South India and worked at the Sheraton in Madras before moving on to Carnival Cruise Lines based out of Detroit. After immigrating to Canada in 2003, Damu picked up tricks of the local trade in various restaurants then opened Madras Masala in 2008 with a focus on the food he grew up with. “The main dish is dosa, which is particular to that region. It has very little fat in it, which is one reason why it’s become so popular,” he explains.

Damu notes that about one-fifth of his clientele are from South India and if anyone is a judge of the authentic food of his home region, they are. “They describe my food as mouth watering and say it tastes like it’s from home,” Damu says with pride.

Not to be confused with its next-door neighbour, Banjara Indian Cuisine, this server of South Indian specialties has 20 kinds of dosas on its menu and they’re all worth writing home about. The service is prompt, the staff is friendly and the portions are big enough that if you get delivery from here, you'll certainly be able to stretch your order to a second meal. Many regulars claim that the only place you can get better Southern Indian cuisine is in the actual region of India. Wheelchair Accessible: No
