Banjara (Bloor near Christie)?

Anyone been? Opinions?

  1. I've only had take out and delivery. My experiences have ranged from fantastic to awful - the latter being most recent. I really hope it was just a really off night, but they've now been open long enough in this location that their product should be relatively consistant.

    1. I live in the neighbourhood and have had take out there a few times. We have really liked it at the price point. Its certainly not as good as some places in little india but its more then acceptable as a neighbourhood takeout place. Especially considering the other options in the area.

      1. Thanks for the replies. I'll have to give it try. Any favourite dishes? Anything I should avoid?

          I've always liked the butter chicken, and, except for the last time, the palak paneer. I've also enjoyed their biryani. The lamb rogan josh has also been very tasty. Instead of butter chicken, we tried korma the last time. We won't be doing that again. It was watery and uninspired.

            We had delivery from there a couple of months ago, did not enjoy it at all and will not order again. Definite avoid is the saag paneer. Rubbery cheese, bitter frozen spinach.

          2. I've been following them around from location to location - and unfortunately the experience has been getting worse. I went about a month ago, and the whole restaurant was filled with smoke from the kitchen. It was actually pretty unbearable, and I had to get outside just to breathe. All the staff were confused and unresponsive. The place was packed, the take out line up long, and nobody could care less if our order had been taken. When we finally did get our food, it was still pretty good, but not as exceptional as I've found it to be in the past. Sadly I think our love affair is over....

            1. Was this the restaurant at Yonge near Bloor?

                I'm pretty sure it was, and prior to that Mr.Maharaja on Balmuto (before the tragedy of the theatre collapse).
