Lunch near the Airport!!

We fly out( going to Halifax, yippeee) of Pearson tomorrow at 2:45pm. We're looking for a good restaurant( preferably Indian) near the airport for lunch.

Any suggestions?

If not Indian, please NO Chains!!

  1. Kwality Sweets in Brampton. Straight up Airport Rd. Odd name for an Indian joint, but great reviews on this board.

    2150 Steeles Ave. East

    1. i used to work up there for 4 years. slim pickings.

      but my faves are:

      1). Hakka on Rexdale 1 block east of Airport Rd (on Maxiel, i think). there's a strip mall on the north side (cannot see it from the road). The Hakka place at the end of the mall is very good for what it is - good lunch specials. We were there last week. Decent hot n sour soup, very good Pad Thai.I personally like their sweet and sour chicken. there's also a menu, but most people there order the lunch specials.

      2) Mr Jerk on Rexdale near 427. The line-up will show you how good their jerk is. prices are great. so are their fried dumplings.

      3) Brar Sweets - Albion and Islington. Veggie Indian food, heavy in ghee, fiery spicy, but great tasting. and its around $7 a person for lunch. maybe not the best pre-flight food. but its very good

      otherwise, good luck. you will be choosing between horrible chains and sketchy mom n pop corner stores.

      1. Check out Lykn’ Chicken at 7460 Airport Rd, just north of the Airport, 5 min drive on Airport Rd. There is a post on the place, just search for Lykn’ Chicken. It’s not Indian, but I think for lunch this would work.

        1. We ended up at exotic indian cuisine in etobicoke. It was way too spicy for my taste. I wasnt impressed.
