Ordered dilliwala butter chicken, lamb rogan josh, gobhi masala with rice and naan. On the pricier side for Indian food but flavors were good. Service was fine, but giving 1 star as they overcharged us on the bill.

The butter chicken was surprisingly not too salty but rather has a nice level of tartness to it. Rich sauce. The navrattan korma was on the salty side and the dough stuff in there wasn’t great but otherwise I quite enjoyed my meal.

The waiter service could’ve been improved but overall the food was delicious. The glasses our water came in were so cloudy we didn’t want to drink from the glasss. If they’re hand washed, maybe find an alternative solitaire or if dishwashed find a better dish detergent.

We found the food, service and ambience excellent. The butter chicken tasty, a large mushroom medley serving enjoyable...and the nan and paratha both wonderful.
We shall return.

The food was good but a bit expensive. You have to pay extra for sides which I think should be included in with a main dish.

The best Indian food in Toronto. It just takes a long time to get food as I think they are getting too many orders from Uber eat.

I met with 4 of my friends for lunch on a Sunday and we really enjoyed our visit to this restaurant. The host/wait staff were very attentive and caring. Our party decided to order 5 different dishes and share amongst ourselves, which ended up being an excellent idea and great way to sample as many dishes as possible. We shared the butter chicken, palak paneer, baingan bharta, bhindi do pyaza, and matar paneer, along with naan and rice (they had suggested 3 pieces of naan would be more than enough for our group to share and they were definitely right! I like how they didn't quote a higher than necessary amount). The ambiance was just lovely, and I especially liked that they seated us at a rounded booth. Would highly recommend this place!

Food was very good. A little pricier than what I normally pay when I go to an Indian restaurant but I would still recommend this place. Tandoori chicken was delish, not dry at all.

We were staying next door at the Residence Inn, so Aanch was very conveniently located. My husband and I enjoyed our table on the 2nd floor, with our view of the street below (watching folks walk their dogs!) We ordered an appetizer to share (Spinach Shammi Kebab) and Rosemary Naan bread. For our entrees we ordered Fish Tikka and Lamb Rogan Josh. Both of our entrees were very good, as well as the naan bread. I didn't care for the Spinach Shammi Kebab... the texture was a little dry.

We have eaten Indian food for years in the US, Canada, and the UK. I also cook Indian food at home. This was by far the best Indian food we have had dining out. The lamb was so tender, the flavors full and complex. Absolutely outstanding!

I was trying to find and India Restaurant close to the ACC for a meal prior to a friend and I seeing ELO in concert (awesome by the way!). The Indian food was a little bit different - enough to be creative but not wonder why made it Indian! Two apps., scallops and samosas both great! Curried chicken and lobster dish as well as a cauliflower dish. All three fantastic- I never seen a lobster dish at an Indian restaurant! Add three Cheetah beers total before top about $80 each.

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.
