I have no complaints on this visit. The table was reserved as I have booked online, no delay on that. Food waiting time was reasonable. The food was okay too except the butter chicken.

Visual appearance of the food was very good but the taste was very poor . I could not relate to Indian taste . only chicken soup was good , Apart from that all the curries and Rice items had no Indian taste. Dosa was good but , what is the point when gravy is only not good, We will anyway not be able to eat dosa without gravy.

* the lighting at the restaurant was really bad couldn’t even see the menu. * the food was very bad and HIGHLY EXPENSIVE How can you charge 12 dollars for rice that’s just ridiculous you guys clearly don’t know anything. Also the food had no taste and the paneer tasted bad. So overall, I would NEVER come here again or recommend anyone. You should really think about fixing your food and your prices!! Specially online because you have a different price online and different price at the restaurant.

We ordered food for $94 on Sunday night. My girlfriend ordered the Karaikudi Special Chicken Biriyani and got food poisoning. She hasn't been able to go to work for two days because of it. Terrible experience.

When reached their at 11.45, and there was only one server to serve 4 or 5 tables. When you open at 11.30 and especially when there is a promotion, you should have enough number or servers.

It was our first time going to Karaikuda. My cousin told us to go since she knows the owners. We love Indian food, so we tried it out. We had help from Lynda with what to choose. We both like very spicy food but it was not that spicy. This food is authentic Indian food, not Canadianized. It was great and we would definitely go again. The only thing that was not great was we had the table right inside the door and it was so busy, people were lined up right beside our table, so not ideal.

Great food. As a vegetarian, there are very less restaurants where I can actually enjoy the food in Canada. Karaikudi will be my group's regular adda.

I had already noted in my reservation that I had wanted a booth. However, when I got the restaurant, we were being seated at a table right next to the door, where the cold air was coming from! Even though we had a reservation for a booth! I had to tell the server that we wanted a booth, we were then seated at one of the tiny booths. My boyfriend and I like to sit next to each other, so we moved to the booth next to us which was larger. However, we were told they were booked, so we had to go back to our tiny booth, although no one sat at the tables next to us for about an hour. During our meal, our dishes were never cleared, making it harder than it already was to eat in such a limited space, we finally asked the waiter to clear them. Waiters all around us were clearing other dishes on other tables and piling them next to our table. Like that is just gross and unprofessional! Furthermore, while we were still eating dessert, one of the waiters asked my boyfriend if he wanted the bill. It is rude to ask the customer to pay while they are still enjoying their food, especially on Valentines day!! In addition, my boyfriend and I were waiting for over half an hour for the bill, which they had rushed us for! Finally we to had to ask one of the other waiters to get us the bill.

Food was great which takes me back every time but their floor service could use some proper management. Piling other customers leftovers and dishes beside someone already eating is disgusting enough not to dine in there. And no one should be waiting half an hour to get their bill after asking for it already.

We came to celebrate our wedding anniversary with family. Our dining experience was very good. Staff were courteous and polite and the food was very good. Karaikudi serves authentic chettinad cuisine. There was a sizeable crowd for a weeknight.

I have no star to give for food because it was most tasteless south indian food i have ever had. The sambhar was just boiled lentiles and boiled vegetables in it. There was no tadka to sambhar. The coconut chutney and the tomato chutnies had no taste at all..... Vegetable biriyani seemed like a boiled veges with boiled rice. Completely tasteless food... would never go back and wont recommend...I forgot to mention the price: expensive prices for most tasteless food..
