Great South Indian food. Nearly perfect. We ordered dosa, fish fry, puri, mutton sukka and idlies. The sukka masala was good but not like a typical intense sukka style. King fish fry was excellent with right amount of spices. Dosa was salty. Great ambiance and...good service.More

Ordered take out. Not only was the food cold, it wasn't fresh tasting. I couldn't even eat it. It seemed like they were recooking yesterday's left-overs. I've eaten there many times in the past, and each time it seems to get worse. Maybe it's new...management or they are cutting corners trying to save money. As a south Indian, i want to support my people, unfortunately this was the last chance and again so disappointed.More

We ordered out very recently. The butter chicken was very good, but the few pieces of chicken were drowned by the sauce in the container. Also ordered rice and noodles - again they tasted great but the portions were extremely small for the price.

The appetizers are amazing. Their Tandoori Chicken is the best l have had. l found the currys too watery and not thick and creamy. Too bad that they don't do a Lamb Madras.

The lunch buffet has so much to offer at a very reasonable price, they will come to your table with fresh dosa also, they keep refilling the food, so always very fresh...a must try!!

Came with family for Mother’s Day with reservation. Food was very good, according to other members of my family, it was better than previous times. Unfortunately, I couldn’t say How the food was. my chapatis came at same time as everyone’s dosa. My chicken which...I was to eat with the chapatis came 1 hr later when everyone was finished and my chapatis were cold. I told them to pack it up since i wasn’t going to eat with 9 people sitting waiting. They did. Surprisingly, they did not adjust the bill to remove the chicken!! I didn’t fight it because it may have taken another hour. Advice. Don’t order anything other than the dosa unless you have 2-3 hrs to spare! But the food IS definitely good.More

I found the food to be good and tasty. The chutneys are very flavourful and delicious. The chilli paneer was very yummy. I found the service was lacking as I had to put my hand up and wave EVERY time. I would have liked them...to be more attentive to me and my needs.More

I was very pleased to see this high quality top notch South Indian restaurant. It is easily the best SOUTH Indian restaurant I have visited in GTA. Great spread for lunch buffet. Choices for Thali as stand alone dishes are great. Loved the place. Will...visit again.More

Happened to visit yesterday, been here a few times since they opened and have noticed decline in quality the last trip I made. Decided to make a trip in spite of a so so experience, but I guess it will be no more trips here...henceforth. First off, reservations were made, we were on time yet had to wait for 15 min to secure a table. Ok they were busy, then after being seated, had to wait for another 30 min and then eventually we had to walk up to the wait staff to come and take our order. We place the order, another 20-30 min wait and lo and behold the appetizers and the entrees save one order all come together... average food ... and we notice one of the diner ‘s order hadn’t made and no mention or check in by the waitstaff... again we flag the waitstaff and enquire about missing order... which eventually appears when the rest of us are done eating... Bill comes and notice they had overcharged us by about 30$.... after we get home.. answering machine is blinking on a missed call.. restaurant staff had called with no voice message... that’s when I check the bill paid by my partner and notice the over charge, putting two and two together... I call back... then we had to drive back to reclaim our money in cash... no more visits that is for sure... Oh by the way their website misleads about a promo that happens once a year in January - two can dine as it still is on... being regulars I knew that they have to redo their website to reflect that... Overall terrible service, poorly trained staff and sub par food!!!!More

Situated astride Lake Ontario, Scarborough is a

it a highly affordable part of town, and boasting one

bargains and discounts. It also draws in
