Which Indian (not necessarily veg) in Thornhill/Markham?

I love tandoori,lamb gosht,other spicy meat dishes and yes, also British style Indian.Can anyone recommend restaurants in the north part of the city?

  1. The Host at East Beaver Creek and Highway 7. There's also a Bombay Bhel around there, but I prefer The Host.

    1. Haven't been yet, but I've heard very good things about Indian Kitchen at Yonge and Clark.

      1. I havent been to the Host up North but was not very fond of the one in Yorkville. I also would recommend Indian Kitchen as the best Indian Food in the North part of the city

          Opposite situation for me, but I felt that the one up in Markham was pretty good, fresh naan, pretty good curries. The other location is the newer one and may deteriorate.

        2. I really like Indian Kitchen at Yonge & Clark. They have one of the best tandoori's I've tasted.

            Disagree strongly. They are only so-so. They are a spinoff of Cuisine of India which is a far far better restaurant.

              I agree with wordsworth. I had been a customer of Indian Kitchen for years and loved it. Then I tried some of the new restaurants that popped up recently. I went back a few months ago and was very disappointed. Tandoori chicken was good. Rice lacked flavour. Naan was ok. And curry veg dish was kind of bland.

              Not sure what happened. I used to love, but now won't return.

              Bombay Bhel is my strong vote. Exceptional food, very consistent. The Host is also good, but I don't think as good... portions are very small.

          2. In Markham I like Chauhan's (Denison)
