An aroma summoned by flavourful spices and the fiery breath of tandoori-style ovens hangs in the air inside Cafe India like a transplanted slice of atmosphere from the other side of the globe. The smooth flavors of coconut milk and yogourt sauces complement dishes of hearty curry and biryani plates layered with rice, meat, and sauce. Colourful Indian art hangs from the walls of Cafe India’s intimate dining room, and red linens add an elegant touch to each table.

According to Hicham "Sam" Eddahi, every meal should be a multi-sensory experience. “We put all five senses on one plate, have all the ingredients fuse into one exquisite taste," said the chef, who cultivated his culinary skills and passion for global cuisine in Europe and Morocco. At Windmills, Eddahi and his team infuse their breakfast, brunch, lunch, and dinner menus with flavours ranging from France to Asia to Latin America, and an expansive wine list ensures mouthwatering matches for every entree. High-quality proteins, such as local ground beef, sustainably fished salmon, or marrowbone, mingle with market-fresh vegetables and flavourful sauces. The menu also features nightly chef's specials, and like a chameleon walking beneath a rainbow, it changes frequently.

Fueled by a passion for cooking healthy Indian food without sacrificing flavour and by a passion for cooking in general, Gita Bassi founded Tandoori Sizzle in 2010. Since then, Gita’s 100% housemade menu and infectious smile has made a lasting impact on the community and her customers, so much so that students who visit the restaurant call her “Mama.”

Delicious as they may be, Gita emphasizes that her dishes are good for you, too—she avoids the use of ghee, a clarified butter included in many Indian recipes. That health-minded approach reaffirms the genuine concern Gita expresses through her food and personality: “My customers are like my family,” she told the Kingston Whig-Standard. “When students call me Mama, I love that.”

Hailed as "one of Canada's most intriguing, inventive and buzzed-about chefs" by the Financial Times, culinary wunderkind Luke Hayes-Alexander became the executive chef at Luke's Gastronomy six years ago, when he was just 15 years old. Relying almost exclusively on local ingredients, Hayes-Alexander designs artistically presented dishes that blend classic, modern, and neo-futurist techniques. These dishes pair nicely with the wine list’s signature chardonnays and cabernet francs, each of which is crafted from free-range grapes grown at the restaurant's own vineyards.
