Best Indian Curry in Brampton?

This might sound strange?!

Tomorrow, I have half a day to spare and would like to test out my newly acquired GPS. I wanted to head out to somewhere I am totally unfamiliar with and have a meal there. Somehow Brampton and curry comes to mind.

Question: My GPS can get me to Brampton. Can some of you fellow chowhounders point me to the 'Best Curry' in town??!! Many Thanks!!

      Maybe no one from B-town is on chowhound? I'd like to know as well to pick stuff up on route to a friend's place.

      1. re: LexiFirefly

        I work up in Brampton, I was also hoping for some responses! There are so many places up that way.

        Anjappar Chettinad was recommended on this board, but I'm not sure if it's the 'best', I haven't had a chance to try it yet.

        After all the seriously excellent tips I've picked up from your posts, I'd be downright scared to send you anywhere! My few experiences in Brampton, even with the Indian side of the family, have tended to feature, uhm, quantity over quality (see: Tandoori Flame). That said, Anjappar Chettinad was definitely better than the same old same old, as others have noted.

          LOL! "Scared" to send Charles Yu anywhere? Don't be - he's game to receive new recs, in order to try something outside of his usual radar. Right, Charles?

          It's like a friend of mine here who's a Chef de Cuisine of a 5-star hotel's stable of restaurants. He's always bemoaning the fact that he *never* gets dinner invitations from any of his friends to their homes - because they were too scared to cook for him. But he'd have been happy just to be served a simple soup or salad- because he really enjoys getting to try someone else's cooking for a change :-D

      3. Technically not in Brampton, Guru Lukshmi makes very tasty dosa as well as other south Indian dishes.

        They're at:

        7070 Saint Barbara Blvd Unit 45 & 50
        (Derry and Maclaughan)
        Mississauga (about 10 minutes from Brampton)

        Closed Wednesdays

        1. re: jammy

          No doubt Guru Lakshmi has some of the best dosa in town but why would you recommend a dosa place when asked for a curry place recommendation?

          1. re: LongtimeFoodie

            Depends on your definition of curry. Apparently there are many.

          2. re: jammy

            I always drive by this place; can someone explain to me what a dosa is? what are the standard meats and ingredients, etc

            1. re: duckdown

              Dosa places are veg so no meat on the menu. :)

              Dosa is a fermented crepe or pancake made from rice batter. You can get it crispy or soft. And then they fill it with curried potatoes, that's the basic masala dosa. You get sambar with it (vegetable stew) and 3 types of chutneys. You basically tear off a piece of dosa with some of the potatoes in it and dip it in the stew and eat. Add chutney for a different taste.

              You can also get different fillings in the dosa if you check out the menu at Guru Lakshmi.


          3. You can try Anjappar Chetinad or Kwality (Steele Avenue). I would pick Anjappar over Kwality. Enjoy.

            1. Thank you all for the inputs!
              Looks like Brampton is popular for Dosa and South Indian Cuisine only?!

              1. There's Tandoori Flame on Dixie. It's a buffet so you can try a variety of their dishes.
