"At this refined, yet casual, Indian restaurant, the portions are large, the wine list is top-notch, and the ambience encourages sharing."
{Condé Nast Traveler's list of Toronto's 20 Best Restaurants}

"There’s lots of competition among the top-tier Indian restaurants in Toronto, and Pukka is at the top of that list. Punjabi curries, vindaloos, paneer, and butter chicken—all the comforting hits from the subcontinent can be found here. And while the food is uniformly excellent, it’s the wine list that’s the standout. Created by sommelier Peter Boyd, it’s a mix of thoughtfully considered bottles that pair well with whichever dish you order (ask the staff for recommendations)."

    We decided to try the early bird special, fully anticipating smaller portions. But no, the servings were generous and soooooo delicious. Gotta love Pukka.

    Highly recommend - exceptional service / friendly staff / easy seating / great drinks / food is world class! Spicy is VERY hot so good to know going in. Would visit anytime. Don't think any other Indian restaurant in TO can compete.

    While, some restaurants come and go. And the food quality of those who make it, ebbs and flows. Not so with Pukka! They have been consistent throughout the years. And their early bird special allows you to try their outstanding cuisine at an incredibly modest price! For $49, before tax & tip, two diners can enjoy a meal consisting of one snack, two curries (mains) and rice. Spice level is subdued compared to more traditional Indian restaurants. Perhaps to appeal to a wider audience… All served in a pleasant surrounding. And during our mercilessly short summer you can eat outside too! What more can one ask for?

    We took advantage of the early bird menu and it did not disappoint! The food is consistently outstanding at Pukka - "gourmet" Indian, perfectly spiced with intriguing flavour combinations. The dishes always taste fresh and healthy. Our service was excellent as well. It is our favourite restaurant in the area.

    Wonderful Indian cuisine. I once asked why the menu is always the same. Pukka responded that the neighborhood would revolt if any dish is removed. Enough said.
