$20 for $40 Worth of Indian Food

The recently updated menu includes vegetarian, meat, and seafood entrees such as home-style Bradford Bay chicken curry with fresh fenugreek, braised parsi ribs with black-cumin curry and basil, asparagus-kofta curry with tomato and coconut sauce, and beetroot and curry-leaf rice. Savoury starters range from banana-leaf-wrapped paneer with an aloo-chaat martini to a spinach fig tikki with bulgur wheat, pickled flavour chichi, and herb sauce. Diners can also snack on street-food chaats such as edamame sundal samosas or leek and golden hubbard squash pakora.

Amaya the Indian Room

Although its dishes hail from India, Amaya the Indian Room's food reflects its North American setting. Crafted from fresh local produce, the dishes are delicately spiced to accommodate a Western palate, rather than eye-wateringly hot. According to the eatery’s profile in the Globe and Mail, the restaurant's founders likewise opted for Western decor, outfitting their dining room with wood panelling and photographs, rather than the temple-inspired decor that they viewed as stereotypical.

The upscale food, however, hews to the subcontinent’s culinary traditions. Diners can feast on lentils cooked for 12 hours in buttery tomato sauce, short ribs braised in kashmiri chili, and prawns bathed in coconut-milk curry. The wine-marinated lamb lollipops, meanwhile, are easier to eat than the original Indian lollipop, a tandoori oven on a stick. For an alternative to these à la carte items, the tasting menu lets patrons sample small portions of multiple dishes. The expansive wine list, meanwhile, pairs seamlessly with meals and offers a subversive touch—Indian food is typically served with beer.

Customer Reviews

Two of us shared a "tasting menu" some of which is chosen by the chef. It was an amazing recommendation and there was almost too much food. Loved it
