    Best kebab and biryani in Toronto. Butter chicken is spicy. No spoon. Mostly crowded. It's like a real trip to Pakistan.

    The Lamb Karahi was full of bones and very little meat. $14 for a bowl of bones is quite expensive. Avoid it.

    The Biryani is typical Pakistani, so basically just rice and meat.

    The only thing I dislike here is their exclusive use of Styrofoam cups. Everything else is great.

    Amazing. The biryani was superb, samosas too. Good range of food, the staff were great and it's just far enough out to not be a tourist trap. Will be back.

    Real authentic Pakistani food here!! However, the service is horrible! They kept missing food items from our orders and we had to drink water from Styrofoam cups?! Ask for FREE red chutney and raitha!

    The food had been quite flavourful. However over the past few years, from the hand full of times I have eaten here, I really did not enjoy the food. The taste is lost somewhere; for me at least.

    We go there often and every time we order butter chicken, sizzling beef ribs, and vegetable biryani, and we love them. Tell them not to overcook the ribs.

    Any sizzle platter dish is wonderful there but the parking is tight and terrible to navigate.
  • Christian P.
    Christian PetrozzaDecember 14, 2014
    Get any of the sizzle platters with the fried rice that comes with an assortment of veggies diced and reduced. Everything is great here. A friend describes it as 'a jiztastic explosion in your mouth.'

    We ordered a vegetarian selection as well as paneer tikka masala. Sweet mango lassis were watered down, veg selection was mediocre and the paneer was sour. Ridiculously priced! Not going back. Sorry!

    This is one of the best food i've ever tasted in Canada. Order style: Self (the first order). All items are served in paper plates. If you are visiting toronto then you must visit this restaurant.
