We ate on the patio the other nite We love the food but the owner should fire the staff They were so rude we laughed all the way home cause we felt we were in the twilight zone or an SNL skit The waitress with...the red hair has anger issues. The things that were said to us most people would have walked out. The owner definitely needs to address this matter. We will never go back. The guy that sat us down lied to us The red head that serviced us needs to see a psychiatrist and then the third person that told us we had to leave cause next guest were waiting We were there less than an hour Never going backMore

Located alongside the St. Lawrence Market with a shaded patio at dinner hour, this restaurant is worth visiting. The food is well executed and flavourful. The portion sizes are a tad smaller as compared with some other Indian restaurants, but the pricing is fair and...the service is fastMore

After living in the GTA area for two decades, we have moved further away. Four of us were back to the city to spend a quiet weekend, and on the first evening we placed a fairly large order for delivery via SkipTheDishes. Our order consisted...of 3 appetizers, 3 vegetarian dishes, 1 non-veg dish, 1 rice dish, and 2 bread dishes (naan and roti). Service was quick – the order arrived within 30 minutes. However, after opening the two big brown bags, we found that the most pricey item in the order – lamb vindaloo – was missing. We called the restaurant, and after being put on hold for almost 12 minutes, someone bothered to discuss the issue with us. He outrightly denied that lamb vindaloo was missing; he insisted that he personally supervised the packing up of the order and he definitely packed the lamb vindaloo. When we asked how he is so sure, he retorted that it was a slow day and it was the only takeout order they have had that evening. When we insisted that we didn’t get the lamb vindaloo, he accused us of lying. We decided to expose his lie and fib. We asked him for a number for text messaging and he obliged. We took a screenshot of the SkipTheDishes order which listed the 10 items we had ordered. Then we took a picture of the handwritten order inventory stapled to one of the brown bags that listed only 9 items that had been packed – the handwritten list didn’t itemize lamb vindaloo. We texted both the images. Then the games started: 1) After sending the text messages, we tried calling back but it took almost 25 minutes before the same guy picked up and grumpily said that it has been a very busy evening, outrightly contradicting himself. 2) Then he started insinuating that we ‘have photo-shopped and edited the screenshots to get a free lamb vindaloo’! 3) When we laughed him off, he magnanimously announced that he is ‘going to give us a free order of lamb vindaloo, but it is going to take 60-90 minutes and we have to come over to the restaurant to pick it up’. 4) When we ruled it out, he asked us for our address so that he ‘can mail us a gift voucher for $15’. 5) When we ruled it out, he just cut our call off in mid-sentence and won’t pick the phone again. To top it all, food quality was not great either. To confess honestly, the dal makhni was quite good, and the naans were fresh and fluffy. On the other extreme, the rotis were cold and hard like papad, and the bhindi masala was outrightly stale. The remaining items were rather below average by Indian food standards. After a few days, SkipTheDishes did issue us a refund when we sent the screenshots.More

The food is quite flavourful, I can only talk to the vegeterian options and they are relatively good. If you would like extra spice, you just have to ask for it and they will gladly cater for you.

Had a really frest evening here. The service was slow at the onset, the restaurant was quite busy. They had a separate section with jazz music. The food was unbelievably good and flavorful. Tons of delicious spices and tasted authentic. The food was on the...pricey end and most Indian restaurants I have been to the naan is included with entree purchase. It was a bit of putting, but its a must. Overall great dining experience.More

I was looking for some nice Indian restaurants in downtown Toronto and came across this place. I went for a weekday dinner. There is no need for the reservations on weekdays as only a couple of tables were occupied. Let’s talk about the ambience and...service first. The ambience is pretty amazing and very soothing to the eyes. I was quite surprised to see toilets for diabled people. So, it’s a totally disabled friendly restaurant. The staff was also very nice & very attentive. Now let’s talk about the food. We started with Papdi Chaat and Paneer Tikka as appetizers. The Papdi Chaat was amazing. Perfect crunchy papdis with a nice tangy flavor of chaat. Paneer Tikka was also good. In Main course, we ordered their Paneer Tikka Masala and Bhindi Masala with some breads. I felt the portion sizes could have been slightly more. There was nothing amazing about the main course but it was good. Finally finished the meal with some Gajar Halwa. The sweetness was perfect but I felt it can be improved by adding more Khoya or Milk during preparation. Overall, a nice place downtown to have some good Indian food.More

My wife and i were recently visiting Canada on a leisure trip and we ordered a take-away from Bindia. The food was tasteful and closer to the authentic Indian food experience. Infact, we ended up ordering a take away the next day as well. Overall,...delicious food and a place which we will certainly order from the next time we visit Toronto.More

This is a pretty modern Indian Restaurant with some very tasty dishes. We chose this Restaurant based on TA's reviews and again we were not disappointed. We decided to choose dishes to share among the five of us and as such we picked the Butter...Chicken, Lamb Biryani, Malai Kofta, which was fried cheese and vegetable dumpligs, plain rice and regular and garlic Naan. All the dishes were incredibly tasty and fresh and each and everyone of us enjoyed the entire meal. If you are looking for a very good Indian Restaurant then Bindia is an excellent choice.More
