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.

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.

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.
