Looking for a reasonbly-priced Indian restaurant south of Bloor in downtown Toronto

spamgirl Aug 25, 2011 11:14 AM

We'll be making a trip to the St. Lawrence Market next week and grabbing lunch there, but after we wander we'd like to end up at a reasonably-priced Indian restaurant. As we're grabbing lunch there we'll probably have about 2 hours to walk at a slow pace, so it would need to be within that distance. Any suggestions?

    You could walk to Maroli easily in the amount of time you have. It's worth a visit.

        Katmandu, they make a wonderful chicken vindaloo, mattar panner and makhani daal. If you like less spicy then the chicken madrassi is good too.
        They also do an interesting take on biryani which includes eggs (nepalese twist) which is really good as well.
        Some of the other dishes are also good but these are my staple. All my pakistani & indian friends including myself go there

            We ended up at Little India - the service was excellent, and the ambience was typical. We had the daily special for two (the only thing that bothered me is that I had to ask for it, the special menu was not offered to us nor was it mentioned on the regular menu, I only knew of it because I went to the website first.) The butter chicken reminded me of Chef Boyardee in it's sweetness, but I still loved it! The pakoras were the best I've had. The chicken tikka was so juicy, and the aloo gobi was OK. The naan was excellent and the Gulab Jamun was perfectly sweet. The price was very good as well! I quite enjoyed the night, at least until the city started jack hammering the sidewalk out front. Thanks for the suggestion!
