Excellent, solid Indian food. They had all our favorites, and we tried a few new dishes as well. Especially recommend the mango martini!

I am always thrilled when the vegetarian options on a menu don’t look like an after thought! Delicious food.

The restaurant was ok the best part was the location and the ambience. The food and drink quality did not match for the price and the decor. The food wasn't terrible but it didn't wow me either. The jumbo shrimp were the best, vegetarian dishes were blah. The cocktails were just not worth the price. Overall it is ok Indian food, at a great location, you are paying for the ambiance not so much the food.

Each dish was tasteful and authentic. Especially enjoyed the Tandoori Salmon (fresh and flavourful) and the Lamb Vindaloo. Waitstaff was attentive without being intrusive. Thumbs up, will definitely go back.

I've been meaning to eat here for quite a while and finally got the opportunity to take a visiting friend and others recently. I should have gone sooner. Excellent food, presentation and friendly, efficient staff. Enjoyed a memorable evening on the patio with food, cocktails and friends.

Great food, although just one issue among the 6 meals eaten. The curry chicken, while delicious, was mostly a bowl of sauce and chicken, vs., chicken and sauce.

Gem of a restaurant in the St. Lawrence Neighbourhood. If you want the best Indian food in the city, look no further. Eat in or take out, this is a regular choice for us.

I went with 3 friends. Two of us cook Indian food regularly. Bindia lacked spice on everything. We paid $23 for Summerlicious lunch. Bindia is next to a larger farmer market (which we go to regularly) and our lunch would have cost them about .25 cents for appetizer, about $2.00 for the main and .25 cents for dessert (a single tim bit size donut with 1/4 cup of sugar syrup, no Indian flavor to it). We felt robbed.

Great food and quality. We shared a variety of dishes and none of us were disappointed. Caters to those who like spicy as well as not so spicy. Will definitely be back.

Service was slow; there were only 2 servers for the whole restaurant, and one doubled as hostess. But the food was very good; great place for a business lunch.

The service was good except for when we entered, we were just greeted with a smile and made to wait for approximately 7-10 minutes despite making a booking and without being informed whether the table is being arranged or any kind of conversation. The food was below average. It could be because we live in England and we have amazing Indian restaurants especially in Central London and we had the same level of expectation for a restaurant in downtown Toronto. Neither the decor, nor the food justifies the prices. The staff was friendly and very polite but that's not the sole purpose of dining out. Unfortunately, I wouldn't visit this place again and nor would I recommend it to anyone as there was nothing appealing about it.

We were visiting from Bermuda and walked up from our hotel to eat there. I had seen good reviews and thought we'd check it out. The food was beyond delicious and the lovely Isabel looked after us in a professional and friendly manner. She made our meal perfect. I would recommend this restaurant to anyone, decor was understated and contemporary. Hope they have a wonderfully long run!

The food is delicious and incredibly fresh and the service is always great. The owners normally come to speak to the groups I bring in and that's always a treat.
