Meet the owner

When you start with quality, you end with quality. This is the motto of Michael Kapil and Vic Mohan, owners of Bindia Indian Bistro. Located in the heart of the revitalised St. Lawrence Market district in downtown Toronto, ingredients for the bistro's delicious lunch and dinner menus come fresh from vendors across the road. ''We're a small business so we like to support small businesses, too. This is why we shop at The St. Lawrence. We're lucky because it's one of the best markets in the world for produce,'' Michael says.

Business partner Vic says if you don't skimp on quality ingredients, there's no need to mask cooking with oils and flavours. At Bindia, an array of tasty Indian dishes are made to order for each and every customer and not only taste divine, but are exquisitely presented as well. ''My personal favourite is the Lamb Vindaloo. Our lamb and chicken dishes are very popular. For vegetarians we have okra, eggplant and lentil dishes. Let's face it — Indian food lends itself to a vegetarian diet. I grew up in a family of vegetarians.''

Good ambience and convenient lunch specials make Bindia a great business lunch choice. Service can be a bit faster, especially for weekday lunches. The food was good, one of the better Indian restaurants downtown.

Tables a little too close together for any privacy. Other than that this is an excellent restaurant. The food was excellent, however, it would have been nice to have a few more items with the dinner. That being said, the quality of the food we received was excellent. Service was a 5 star. Highly recommend. I will be back.

Unfortunately the menu as we had known it had changed. Our server was not really very knowledgeable about the items. We expressed milk/cream intolerance; desire for food to be mildly spicey. Rather than being helpful, she grew progressively impatient and visibly annoyed, making for a very uncomfortable and unpleasant experience. It wss the end of her evening and she was likely tired.One of the owners tried to explain changes to menu etc. The owners are very friendly and pleasant people.

The general consensus of the group (7) was that the food was very enjoyable however, probably due to a misunderstanding, mine was simply too spicy and I couldn't eat it. Our biggest problem was with the bar. One of us ordered a white rum with one ice cube. Out came a glass stuffed with ice and the rum. It was sent back, ice removed and the remaining rum put into a smaller glass. By then, the rum was mostly water. THAT was sent back and a new shot was poured. 3 tries for a simple shot. My dirty vodka martini was similarly watered down and wasn't much more than olive juice and water. Service was prompt however not overly friendly. I wasn't too happy to see 18% tip automatically added to the bill.
