'Fantastic Curry House, Markham' - Anyone??!!

Drove past the strip mall on the east side of Kennedy, between 16th Avenue and Major Mac., Noticed a small, cozy S.E.Asian cuisine place with the name of ' Fantastic Curry House'. Just wondering if any fellow chowhounder given it a try?
I'm constantly searching for good S.E Asian places with great curries to augment the current list of favourites like Gourmet Garden, Restoran Malaysia or the place inside the food court at Metro Square.
After yesterday's fiasco with Fantasy Eatery, where I experienced a 180 deg turn of a good popular place, from great to poor! It would be nice to have something good in reserve just in case great places turned sour abruptly!!

  1. It's a Hong Kong style Curry shop... Opened a few months back and even had 10% off during their grand opening. It's the spicy level of HK style curry, not too spicy/exciting but a slight spicier than Japan curry mix.

    You know how Hong Kong people like the Potatoes in the curry almost more than the protein, it's that kind of meal here. They have Viet noodles and other stuff on the menu but I would say its not inline with any comparison to Gourmet Garden and such.

    1. Charles, what do you like from the Metro Square place (Lemongrass?) I can actually get to this place from time to time. RM is too far for me and not sure it'd be worth it based on what I've read.

      At Lemongrass I've had the char kwey teow and I just found it rather chinese style, similar to what I could get at any other food court if I asked for spicy. Curry and roti was much better.

        All three of their curries were very good. Chicken and beef brisket shared the same type of sauce. Meat very flavourful, tender but still retains a nice chewy texture. Mutton is a bit more spicy but equally good.
