As the name has indicated, it is a little Indian restaurant on Queen Street. Most of the restaurants around the area are fitted in a little narrow space but this one has 3 floors. Yes, so it is narrow hall x 3. We were seated on the second floor, the tables were pretty tight (like most Asian restaurants, try to fit as many tables as possible). The back of my chair is kissing the back of the chair of the table behind me. The decor was quite old, I was sitting by the window but there was good heating coming out there so I was not cold. The table was small, just enough space to fit 4 plates, the curry bowls and glasses of water.. that was it, anything else, you will have to be holding it.
I got the butter chicken with naan which did not come with the meal and had to order it separately (I hate that!!!). My friend order the rice and it was a huge plate, good size to share while the naan was only 2 pieces. The food came pretty fast after you order even when the restaurant was filled with tables. The waiters always come around to fill your water without having to ask which was good. But when it was time to get the bill, they took forever. The butter chicken was served on a steel bowl. The sauce was pretty creamy with spicy and sweet taste to it which I adore. Some people found it too sweet but I like it. There was about 6 pieces of chicken in the bowl. I ate the entire thing including dipping all the sauce (can't let the yummy sauce go to waste!!). At the end, I was very satisfied and full.
Just be careful, there are 3 Indian restaurants that are side by side so make sure you know which one you are going into.
