Banjara Indian Cuisine - Bloor St

796 Bloor St W, Toronto, ON M6G 1L7

Small and quiet, with a unique indoor patio, Banjara almost seems like an awesome apology for the café that previously occupied the space. Trust that any lunch date here will be tasty and satisfying, no matter the diet. The sheer variety of Indian cuisine offered here can keep vegan and vegetarian palates satisfied for years, and the butter chicken is amazing.

OM Restaurant

1439 Queen St W, Toronto, ON M6R 1A1

If you think that Indian cuisine has already fused with all the other cultures out there, you would be almost right. Om offers Indian and Tibetan fusion with all the beauty and flavour of each culture. Have a gyuma appetizer before your butter chicken and finish off with their famous jasha momo (a steamed chicken dumpling). It’s also worth noting that this restaurant was the winner of the 2013 Reader’s Choice Award in The Parkdale Villager.
