    The service was exceptional, and the food was incredibly delicious. We ordered Panipuri shots, Spinach shammi kebab, Paneer butter masala, and Mango lassi, all of which were delightful. It was our anniversary, and the staff surprised us with a lovely dessert that said "Happy Anniversary!" While the prices are on the higher side compared to other restaurants, every penny spent was worthwhile. I highly recommend this restaurant; it's a must-try experience.

    Food was great. But in general the restaurant was extremely loud to the point of having to shout at the person next to you, and the service was awful. Our drinks arrived at the same time as the main course, more than 40 minutes after the placed the order.

    While the food quality was good, it does not live up to the reputation of a Michelin recommended restaurant. When I go to a Michelin recommended restaurant, my bare minimum expectation is to see a unique menu . Nothing new at this restaurant.

    Was in Toronto for a family vacation and went to Aanch for dinner. The restaurant was located in a nice area by the CN Tower, but the place was small and not very organized as I had reservations and took 10+ min to get seated. Once seated the food was out quick and was very tasty and I would go back.

    Enjoyed dinner at Aanch with family and friends, very good ambience and food. We had ordered Spinach Kabab, chicken tikka and lamb sheikh kabab for appetizers. All were tasty and vey succulent. Having very smooth and tasty Sheekh Kabab after decades, it kind of tasted like Galouti kabab. For main course biriyani butter chicken paneer tikka daal and nan were par excellence. Staff were very pleasant helpful and had big smile. Thank you will definitely visit again

    My visit came from a recommendation I saw online. The staff was polite and friendly. But the menu was completely stained and wrinkled, not a good sign. I had the Mulligatawny soup which was so salty I left half of it. if not for that it would have been nice. Main entree was the vindaloo chicken and I'm sorry to say it tasted as if the sauce was store-bought. Pretty bland. And all of that was pretty expensive too. I am rarely disappointed by Indian food but this time I was.

    We went to Aanch as part of Winterlicious and we did not receive what was advertised/ordered. Portion sizes were very small but tasty. We would have been better off ordering ala carte. Service and ambiance was very nice. We would go back but stick to the regular menu items.

    I think it is good. But not very good. I have had more experimental Indian cuisine and I have had better tasting cuisine. I had high expectations but Aanch didn’t meet them. Other things like not having stuff on the menu was also kind of annoying.

    Upstairs seating has all the charm of a school cafeteria. Lots of sauce in dishes but little actual food— hard to find the shrimp and chicken in the curry dishes we ordered. Lentil dish was mush. We ordered extra basmati rice so we could sop up all the soupy saucy dishes. It was cold and grey. Naan lacked the pillowy texture of fresh baked — ours was crispy. Very pricy for what you get. There’s better Indian food in Toronto at those prices.

    The service was the real disappointment here. Inattentive and unhelpful. We felt judged for asking questions. They made us feel like we didn’t order enough, yet we didn’t come close to finishing what we had ordered. Some dishes were great, some were bland, but the experience overall a letdown.
