Best Indian for Lunch?

  • 8

We have been on a gastro tour of the city with my fifteen year old daughter these past few days. Dinner at Mistura last week, reservations at Zucca tonight. In between, we have had Pho twice, Pho Pasteur, and Pho Vietnam. Now she would like authentic Indian. Looking for suggestions?
Thanks

        Its near yonge and eglinton.
        Also I second Anjappar Chettinaad. The experiences at Jaipur Grille and Anjappar Chettinad should be different because they are from different parts of the country.

    1. really like utsav in yorkville and anjappar chettinad in brampton or scarborough

      1. Little India on Queen just west of University. Great lunch buffet and I think it's $8.99 for ayce. Go early because it gets busy. I went at 11:30 and didn't have a problem getting a seat. By noon they were lined up waiting for seats.

        1. I would also include Cuisine of India located on Yonge between Sheppard and Finch. Very authentic Indian cooking.

          1. Haven't been in a while, but I used to like Curry Twist in the Junction a lot. I like Lahore Tikka on Gerrard East - mostly for the lively ambiance, but the food is decent. There's plenty o' deals to be had on Queen W and McCaul where at last count 3 restaurants were dueling Buffet rates to lure in the biz lunch masses.

            1. Haven't tried it for lunch yet, but Banjara (two locations) has blown me away for dinner recently. Bloor and Christie or Yonge and Mt. Pleasant.
