The food was excellent - I have been here several times before, and will be returning with other friends. I was surprised at how quickly the food arrived given that the place was packed. However, it was unusually loud this time, with the high ceilings amplifying the sound.

Please treat all the customers equally. I have been here more than 5 times and every time there is a clear discrimination on how you treat the customers. Definitely need an improvement on this.

It was a packed house! A challenge for everyone, but the staff bent over backwards to seat us promptly. Thankfully, our very informed waitress kept us informed of any delays and sold out menu items without our asking. Most importantly the food was absolutely worth waiting for! Looking forward to returning again soon.

The food came 1.5 hours after the order was taken. There was utter chaos. The food came one dish at a time. The management is really bad. This the first and last time of me being there. I will never recommend it to anyone.

A lovely time overall. Food is delicious and comes freshly prepared. Restaurant was full and therefore a bit too noisy (like most restos these days). Two of us were served our main and the other two had to wait almost 1/2 hour, a bit a a glitch there. Staff were very attentive and did their best given the busy night. We left happy and will be returning for sure.

The Dosas looked delicious, but the food was bland and flavorless. The food tasted everything except south indian. Needless to say not ongoing back ever.

food was good except the south indian coffee , it was just normal instant coffee , was very disappointed with the coffee. one suggestion - if you can please keep one of your staff member at the entrance to welcome the guests and make them seated. when you enter there is no one to welcome and you are right on top of people's head who are enjoying their meal. it's very awkward situation. no water is served until you ask for.

Made a reservation for Valentine's day with my sweety. Service was excellent and the server was knowledgeable about the menu and help us navigate the special for the evening. The Doha was well prepared and the flavours subtle with a good background of heat. This was our first time but not the last.

The food is absolutely amazing. The dishes are so different from any Indian food we've had before. Everything was presented by a super enthusiastic server who helped us make great choices. The food is 80% vegan but the meat dishes we ordered were delicious too. All 6 of us were given free samples of their mango lassi which is made in house. Yum! We are dosa lovers now!

Server Kristy was outstanding but food came out cold, coffee was not hot and we had to wait a long time for the biryani so one person got his food when we were almost done. Overall food was good. Could improve the taste, tone down spice levels (we asked for medium and it was too spicy).

the look is basic like a cafeteria, hot water is served in steel glasses which is hot to hold.not enough servers to accommodate the crowd.

This is a place still figuring out the difference between a restaurant and a take-out joint. Maybe OK as it has only been open 3 months but odd as it apparently has an experienced parent site in Montreal. Problems: contact by phone results in a 4 month old message and no space to leave messages. The YP booking site is not recognized at the restaurant even though it is listed on the website. Going into the restaurant mid-afternoon resulted in bargaining about securing space for 7 diners at 2100 and then staff spent extended efforts at making an on-site electronic booking! Decor is high-school cafeteria; menus are already tattered; instructions intended to be helpful about which dishes are considered appetizers and which are mains is lost in a jumble and too much verbiage on the menu cover. Food was good to very good but we had to send a main back when it arrived shortly after the appetizers and sat on the table untouched for 15 minutes. When reminded the staff was very accommodating. Other than the basic cooking, this whole operation needs professional help.
