Rashnaa was great

Had a really good dinner at Rashnaa last night. Went there with a bunch of friends for dinner before a show at the Phoenix and we really enjoyed our meal. I wish I could remember everything we ate but we each just ordered one dish so it got kind of confusing at the end. Here's what I do remember: Devil Chicken and Devil Beef (couldn't decide, so ordered both). I liked the chicken better. Nice and spicy but could have been served a little hotter (temperaturewise, not spicewise). The Butter Chicken was delicious. The String Hopper (mutton) was excellent and I will admit I ordered it because I like the name. The masala dosa (big crepey thing with potato inside) was fantastic. We also had a squid curry which I didn't eat, and a briyani (veg) which was good (not fabulous). We also ordered the combo appetizer plate - but next time I think I'll just order the one thing on it that was like a deep-fried crab cake. The rest of the items were underwhelming.

At the end of it all - with multi beers and even a half litre of wine, the bill came to $165 for 7 of us (not including tip). And we were stuffed. You can't beat that. Thank you Chowhound for the recommendation. I'll be back.

  1. So glad that you liked it! It's one of my favourite well-priced restaurants in Toronto, and their area of delivery is ridiculously huge, which makes it all the harder for me to resist when I don't feel like cooking or going out!

      How long does their delivery take? I'm thinking of ordering tomorrow but I remember that they had slow service in the restaurant. I'm near Pape/Danforth.

        It probably depends on what time you order. I don't think it's ever taken more than about an hour for me, and I live quite far away too (Greenwood / Gerrard area). Don't be alarmed if they ask for your phone number and if they can call you back; this has happened every time I've tried to get delivery and I think it may be the mechanism they use to ensure that they're not being duped into a fake delivery (either that or I just end up calling when they're really busy).
