Food was extremely delicious. My family and I got the Gawal Mandi Chana Daal, Chicken Kebab, the Chicken Karahi, the Family Naan, and the Tandoori Roti with Butter. The flavor was extremely savory, robust, and spiced perfectly. Our only gripe was that the chicken kebab...was lacking, but the other food was so fantastic we did not really care by the end of the meal. Good vegetarian options and all of the meat is halal, which is great for our family. Would recommend to anyone looking for a unique dining experience in the Toronto area.More

Returning from Niagra Falls on a snowing cold day, we were looking for a Desi restaurant to satiate our famishing tummies. Google search landed us in the “Karahi Boys” at Lawrence Ave E, Toronto, Canada. The place looked to be inviting from the outside, more...warmth & coziness awaited us inside. Thank God we booked our table on the way, else would have waited more than half an hour as the place was abuzz with customers. Knowing nothing about the restaurant or the cuisine, we decided to let the waitress guide us with food ordering. Charsi Karahi, Behari Boti, and a mixed-kabab platter finally topped the list. Don’t be misled by the word ‘Charsi’ as that was just the name and no ‘hush’ ingredients used in the dish. As boasted by the waitress, Charsi Karahi won the contest with its enticing aroma, rich meaty taste, and unique flavor. The platter was also excellent with juicy meat, soft texture, and not-so-hot spicy ingredients. However, the Behari Boti turned out to be a disappointment; dry, bland, stale, and tasteless. The Nans were not served in traditional pots but dangling on a tenter hook. Nans were freshly baked, hot, soft, and mildly creamy. Tasteful in the mouth and easy on the stomach. Except for the Behari Boti, everything else was up to the mark; the ambiance, the service, the food, the location, and the cleanliness. But, I must add in haste that the food portion was on the stingy side. The overall experience was good. Will I like to go back to the place again? You bet I will.More

This is our first time having Pakistan food. Initially, we chose this place because of review but when we were standing at the entrance, we realized we most likely chose the right place as we saw their customers were mostly South Asians. The portion was...really big but the price was very reasonable. We had a lot of leftovers to bring home. Their meat was so delicious with multiple layers of spices flavor. Their Naan bread is a must have. The only thing I would complain is their cuisine is very meat heavy. Also love their customer service. Staff was surprisingly friendly and helpful, when they realized this is our first time having Pakistan food. Highly recommended. Our son's South Asian friend confirmed this is the right place for Pakistan food. He also recommended the Mississauga location.More

Service was slow. Food was just okay. More on the spicy side. Large space with lots of seating. Not sure if this is still the case but there was an automatic fee for cleaning due to covid. Not impressed. I would hope that all restaurants...wipe down their surfaces!More

This restaurant EXCELS in customer service and food quality. Just finished a reservation order here with 2 families. We went in the morning to book a reservation, and the lady at the counter told me they don't do same day reservations, but allowed us. Treated...with respect while eating and getting served, the food is also worth the price. Guest family enjoyed loads as well. Best service in the province in my opinion. Special shoutout to Jigir, he had some exceptional closing of the bill.More

My family and I had dinner this weekend at Karahi Boys - Lawrence location and we are so glad we did. My parents were really impressed and we all had a wonderful time. The food was delicious and fresh, the customer service was on point...and our server Hazal frequently checked in with us and went above and beyond to make sure we had a good time. Definitely would recommend this restaurant to friends and family. All the food was yummy including the dum biryani and chicken Karahi, but the Goat Karahi stood out and was exceptional, a must try!!More

Very over priced, I should have looked at the bill. Because of COVID they dont have menus. But I will give a very high rating for the restaurant. This place is no a dive or a shabby greasy spoon. The seating and atmosphere say ''fine...dining', a place you can bring your boss or a person you want to impress. The food is amazingly deliciousMore

This is not authentic Pakistani food at all but a rip off. Food was bland, flavourless and Karahis were the worst. Don’t waste your money here. Service was average and atmosphere was below average.

Food was ok but definitely not worth the $$. Service was bad. We were out of water and bread but could not order it as all the servers were chit chatting with each other and not a single one was available to talk to us....A tip: they give a 10% discount if paying cash. It is a spacious restaurant with plenty of parking available. We were somewhat concerned that there will be a line up and we will have to wait but there were plenty of tables available. Though the website mentions that they prepare food from scratch and we should expect a long wait after placing the order, but the food was ready in about 10 mins. All in all, we will not recommend this placeMore
