The food at Banjara is fantastic. But multiple times they have messed up the order when placed on UberEats. Those in charge of delivery orders need to double check what is in the bag with what is written on the receipt that they staple to...the outside of the bag. It's not that hard. It is a shame that the excellence of the food is undermined by something that could be so easily corrected.More

Had a great meal here, staff and service very friendly and attentive. Wide selection of menu choices, food came quickly. Couple points to note, while food was fine, some of the sills and window areas around tables felt a bit dark and possibly grubby and...the garlic naan bread was so overpowering none of the 4 of us could finish it. (That was the only food item we did not care for though.) would go back here anytime and they have some free parking, a real rarity.More

Very good overall -- always crowded and everyone's jolly, so there must be good stuff here. The Andhra curries are especially delicious. Prices are reasonable and service is always efficient.

Banjara is AGAABTAE! The food is as good as any I've had in Toronto. The best lunch Tali in the city. The value is also good as it's not super pricey - the staff are friendly and efficient. Basically, I've no idea why this place...doesn't have a way higher rating. If you like Indian food, this is As Good As Anywhere, But Than Almost Everywhere!More

Went to this restaurant on a recommendation. We weren’t disappointed. The evening we went was quiet (Monday), the staff were polite and knowledgeable recommending dishes etc. we decided to go vegetarian for the evening and had a large plate of delicious food. We enjoyed it...so much we took a friend the next week. This time we had a large sharing plate both vegetarian and meat dishes. I can’t recommend this restaurant enough it was brilliant. The food is so tasty and not overly expensive.More

I don't even know where to start with this place. The food is EXTREMELY GOOD , the service is great. It is great for take out or dining in , the food travels great and comes in very nice re-usable containers. If you want to...dine in there are plenty of different places to sit and the atmosphere is great. I would definitely recommend this to anyone. There are also lots of vegetarian and vegan options.More

I ordered via skip the dishes. The portions are generous, but the butter chicken was really salty and the naan wasn't very good. The dessert was also only ok. I would not recommend it as tge salt ruined the butter chicken.

Order never came. I ordered a large family dinner at 630pm and it never arrived. I called after 2 hours (8:30pm) and was told it was “on its way”. After 3 hours (930pm) I called again and got spun some story about how the driver...got lost. I’d prefer if they just told me it wasn’t going to come so I could order something else instead. Don’t order here unless you like spending your evenings going hungry!More

I ordered butter chicken to go with my bread. The staff asked for the spice level and I ordered spicy. However, it wasn't spicy enough and I didn't quite like the taste of the curry and the meat. I have no idea about other items...on the menu though.More

I go here for Biriyanis, the best I have had so far. I am a vegetarian, and finding good vegetarian spicy biriyani with paneer or gongura flavours around here is difficult. This is the best you can ask for. The prices are quite reasonable too....A definite Go-to for biriyani cravings. Their other indian dishes are quite good too, special mention for their appetizers like paneer dishes or papdi chat.More

The place is terribly packed and has waiting from 20-30 minutes and not for nothing. The food is yummy cooked to your palate with several options . About 5 minutes walk from the subway ..which is worth the walk. Their chicken tikka and other non-vegetarian...items were perfectly cooked not so dal which we found wanting with excessive chillies . All in all a great foodie place though a bit pricy !More

First time here and ordered NY Eve take out with Uber Eats delivery and the six of us agreed that everything chosen was awesome. Lamb dish was a hit as was the Daal. Will return!
