Excellent authentic tasting food. The spread of dishes was good with great variety. It was a great value for money at the rate that was charged. Service is excellent and the ambience great. Worth a visit.

Just ate here after visiting at lunchtime. Photos are from the buffet lunch. Lots more choice available at lunch. Next time for me. We had a mixed platter starter with 5 choices. All were amazing. The 2 main course dishes were perfect with enough zing to be Indian without overkill. The background spices were plentiful but not overwhelming. I have... More

This restaurant was recommended to us by some friends who had visited the place earlier and enjoyed the food and the good atmosphere. A prime location at the city centre dr, which is not too far from the famous Square One Mall, and having very spacious free parking space. It is an elegant restaurant, very nicely furnished and well maintained.... More

Went to check the layout, you have appetizers like samosas and salads. You have rice or naan bread, which both were good. There were like 5... More

I visited The Host on a Friday evening with 2 other people. The first impression was not good a which unfortunately foreshadowed the rest of the evening. The hostess was not cordial, polite and her communication skills were lacking. I am not a proponent of the service by committee as I find it to be very impersonally, and challenges/issues encountered... More

I go here often with family & friends. I have yet to have a bad experience. The food is always delicious. The servers are great at accommodating any group I've gone there with. Their vegetarian and non vegetarian selection is great. The lighting could be slightly better. My background is Indian and I find the food here quite authentic. It's... More

Went with the family, we ordered naan tokri, dal makhani, kathal, bhindi and malai kofta. For appetizers we had palak kebabs and paneer tikka. Both the appetizers were very good. All the dishes except malai kofta I would recommend. Yummy food, and not very oily. Somehow the malai kofta was very average. The staff is friendly and service is quick.... More

I have had Indian food from over 200 different places in canada and overseas and the Host is one of the best. If you enjoy Indian food you will love this place i promise you. It is always fresh and the flavors are perfectly balanced.
