Large portions and good choice of specialist dishes - but rather strange seating arrangement in a soulless ground floor spot in a downtown office building.

We met as a group of 25 international academic colleagues for a fun reunion and were kindly welcomed, courteously served and delightfully fed with a variety of flavourful and well-presented dishes. We had a long, festive table upstairs and the whole event went smoothly thanks to thoughtful hospitality and fine food.

The food was delicious, and portions are generous. We did have an issue with our table not being clean when we sat down, and the restaurant set up itself is unusual.

Staff are very friendly.

My main course took forever to arrive. There was a large entourage dining next to me and they seem to have gotten all the attention. I felt ignored. I had to get up and walk to the front desk to get my bill because I had difficulty getting any waiters attention.

We were in Toronto for a short trip in April. One of our favorite cities. Always looking for interesting restaurants. Aanch Indian restaurant was outstanding, possibly the best Indian food we have ever had. The chicken tandoori, the soup, and everything else was outstanding. We would be regulars if we lived in Toronto, but we live in Florida.

Definitely loved the relaxed feel of this place. I definitely would return to try more dishes. The plain and garlic naan paired with the butter chicken and chicken tikka masala were amazing! Decent portions to be shared between two or more people. Definitely recommend!

The food was excellent. Wonderfully flavourful. Would definitely go back. The service could be a little bit better - we didn’t get water refills or get our table cleaned quickly, and we didn’t get offered tea or dessert at the end of our meal (also please get some decaffeinated teas) . The chef came out to ask us how we enjoyed the food, which I appreciated. All in all, a great dinner.
