All India Restaurant & Sweets

4249 23 Ave NW, Edmonton, AB T6L 5Z8

All India features a strong variety of traditional samosas: vegetarian with spiced potatoes and peas; meat with either chicken or beef; cheese-stuffed (paneer); a special samosa choley, which is two veggie samosas topped with chana masala; and samosa chaat served with yogurt and tamarind chutney. This might be the best place to get an eclectic handle on this whole samosa thing.

Little India Ltd

9250 34 Ave NW, Edmonton, AB T6E 5P2

Little India only serves choley samosas – two simple pastries filled with potatoes, chickpeas and spices. Although the choice is limited, the samosas pack a solid punch of flavour that will titillate your tongue right off. You’re probably not going there just to have a samosa anyway, so don’t be afraid to try out their extensive meat and vegetarian menus.

India Garden Restaurant

4820 76 Avenue NW, Edmonton, AB T6B 0A5

The India Garden restaurant is about as secretive and exotic as it sounds. Tucked away in the Meridian Place complex just off 50 Street and Sherwood Park Freeway, this jewel of Indian cuisine offers a wonderful selection of buffet-style meals with all the butter chicken, pakora, curries and Naan bread you could eat. A variety of veggie, meat and tikki choley samosas are made fresh to order to partner well with whatever delicacy you pile on your plate.

Remedy Cafe

10279 Jasper Ave NW, Edmonton, AB T5J 1X8

Remedy Café is always a great place to experience Indian cuisine for the cosmopolitan-on-the-go. There’s a large range of combos and deals ranging from a simple order of two or four samosas to the more social two samosas, dahl and large chai or four samosas and two large chai teas to share with a friend – and all at a low price to boot! Also, don’t let a restriction of lactose get you down because all of Remedy’s samosas can be made vegan and/or dairy-free to include the dietary needs of almost everyone.

Dovetail Delicatessen

10721 124 Street NW, Edmonton, AB T5M 0H2

Dovetail offers an extensive menu of “simple foods done well,” and their samosas are no exception. A simple take on the classic appie, Dovetail’s potato and pea samosas are served vegan style with a handsome helping of the family chutney recipe. Pair them up with a homemade soup, salad or sandwich to round out a delectable dining experience.

Zaika Bistro Bar

2303 Ellwood Dr SW, Edmonton, AB T6X 0J6
