Terrific restaurant, great food and great service! We were a table of three and enjoyed the butter chicken, chicken saag, chicken tikka, lamb korma, rice, naan, onion baji and rice pudding for desert. Every dish was fresh and delicious.

I felt compelled to write a review because the food at this place was truly terrible. I got takeout from here because it was the closest Indian place to my hotel with decent reviews. I was really looking forward to the food after a long...day. Specially the lachha paratha. I was sadly extremely disappointed. I had gotten the chicken Kashmiri korma, dal makhni, butter naan and lachha paratha. The quantities were more than generous and the food was hot. But the good part ends there. All of it completely lacked flavor. I do not understand how they managed to make the dal super spicy and completely flavorless at the same time. The chicken was just ok, kind of sweet but also completely lacking flavor. The most disappointing were the breads. The butter naan was rubbery. They had either oversized the dough or kept it frozen or both. But the worst thing was the paratha. I don’t think whoever runs this restaurant knows what a lachha paratha is. They took that same rubbery naan and fried it with some spices to call it lachha paratha. No layers, no flakiness, not even the right kind of dough. The prices at this place are not cheap. To serve such atrocities in the name of Indian food is a shame. I have a hard time wasting food. So, I put the generous amounts of leftovers in the fridge but I don’t think I can bring myself to eat this again. It was that bad.More

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
