We shared many plates with the whole family and they were all very tasty. I highly suggest this place if you want an Indian experience in Toronto. It met all our expectations!

I had dinner at Utsav in April 2022. The restaurant was not very busy as it was Sunday evening. I had palaak paneer (spinach) which is also known as saag paneer. I also ordered garlic naan bread and basmati rice. The portions were very large....For dessert I had a mango lassi. The food was delicious and I was stuffed. The service was very good. I look forward to eating hear again my next time in Toronto.More

Years ago I discovered Utsav through a friend and absolutely loved it. One day a number of work colleagues joined me there for lunch, and on the way back to the office, we all agreed that we should have a monthly Lunch at Utsav. And...we have continued to do that for about 7 years. One year my husband took me there for my birthday, and Suresh, the owner, surprised me with a mint-chocolate cake. I couldn't recommend it highly enough and am immensely pleased to see that it is surviving this crisis. All the servers are excellent and Suresh is an absolute delight. Treat yourself!More

Set in the trendy Yorkville area of Toronto, Utsav Restaurant serves up delicious Indian food. The food is as spicy as you want it & fresh; however, depending on the chef that night, it can taste a bit different but great nonetheless. The decor is...simple; the staff attentive; the noise level fluctuating depending on how crowded it is.More

Eating Indian solo is always a challenge, but I had a really nice meal here. Friendly attentive service and really good food. The onion kulcha was off the charts good. I very much look forward to my next visit.

This is one of the best Indian restaurants I've been to. Everything on their menu is beyond delicious. They have both vegetarian and meat dishes. My favorite is paneer in spinach sauce. Butter chicken is great, too. The prices are reasonable, especially considering that it...is in Yorkville, an upscale part of Toronto. Highly recommend this place!More

Located in downtown Torontothis is a pleasant dining experience. A well finished and appointed dining room of medium size. Food was well presented, portions reasonable, and good quality. Service was good without being fussy.

So glad to have found this restaurant on Trip Advisor during a recent visit to Toronto. Located in upscale Yorkville . . . this wonderful restaurant is two blocks from the Bay St Subway Station and is a must do culinary adventure. Expertly prepared Indian...dishes served by attentive staff on tables with white table cloths in an area that will accommodate 35 or so people in an intimate environment.More

The atmosphere was perfect for a casual dinner conversation. Service was prompt, polite and professional. Portions were well sized. The food was well prepared, presented nicely, and tasted great. Price was reasonable compared to most places in the neighbourhood. I definitely recommend.

Wow! What a hidden little gem! The owner Mr Serash was on the premises, welcoming us, and gave us the best service ever! We were treated like five star guests. The food was of the highest quality, and although I do like flavorful food I...dislike food that is to hot the chef understood this, and each bite was a taste sensation! My friend liked his food more spicy and hot and he got exactly that! This place will see me soon again!!More

Overpriced, regular Indian food. You can find something better in this area for this price range. Would not be my choice next time.

The Cheetah beer is too sweet and not quite cold enough. The shared starter is not quite good enough to be called good. The waiter seems unable to stop bumping into my chair, and apologising for the same .... however, he may have noticed my...writing this review as he’s started missing me....... the tip & bill are due after all! Would I recommend this establishment... Well, if I were not about to fly out to the north west of England where numerous places make excellent Indian food.........? Well, let’s just say that I’d like to place this one, only after I’d visited a few more, to see how they do. The one thing I have noticed during my visit to Canada, is how warm , friendly polite & helpful everyone is, especially in restaurants. Sadly, I cannot say the same for Utsav! In my opinion, I’d keep on looking!More
