Rasoee in Scarborough...best Indian food EVER!
As an ex-pat Brit, I am fond of a curry, but haven't found one that really harkens me back to Birmingham, the British curry capital.
So I was deeply and pleasantly surprised to find Rasoee, on Birchmount near Ellesmere.
I had the samosas to start...light and crispy with excellent spiced filling, served piping hot with a lovely dipping sauce. Chicken Mahkini followed (excuse spelling) which is their butter chicken. Delicious! Creamy, moreish, and tender, nicely spiced (not too hot, but with a zing), served with a fluffy, light naan and a cucumber salad.
Total bill: $6.85.
Go there, go there, go there!
Ditto downtown (Richmond & Spadina). Tiny portions, ineptly prepared and under-spiced. Even Dhaba's a better deal!
I too was less than impressed with their downtown location. Glad you posted, otherwise I would have written off their Birchmont location too. Thanks!
I believe that, as a franchise, all locations deserve their own praise / criticism. Thanks for filling me in on the downtown location, what a shame it's not up to the same standard! I will definitely avoid it.
I also meant to praise the generous portions of the Scarborough location. For the cost of a Big Mac meal, I thought that the food was fresh, filling, and delicious.
