Waterfalls’ crafty chefs spice up their dinner menu with a selection of Indian tapas and fusion cuisine that has garnered favourable reviews from Toronto Life and Globe and Mail. Called “a great sharing dish” by Toronto Life, a vegetable combo platter invites dining groups to untangle from their weeklong thumb war and split morsels of veggie pakoras, onion bajis, and samosas. Vegetarian and vegan main dishes blanket palates with options such as mutter paneer, a blend of peas and Indian cottage cheese. For meaty fare, butter chicken sings the flavours of Indian spices as a tomato cream sauce cascades over its boneless meat. Chefs load dried fruits, nuts, and coconut into Kashmiri rice before topping Waterfalls’ special naan bread in onion, garlic, and chili. Diners can also customize their meal by whispering into the eatery’s thermostat with their choice of edible heat levels ranging from medium to very spicy.
Though not included with this Groupon, Waterfalls’ bartenders pour wine and mix cocktails, martinis and mojitos from the restaurant’s drink menu. Nibble fusion fare on an outdoor patio, or tear bread amid yellow painted brick walls and a chandelier that dangles from the interior’s exposed ceiling. Live jazz fills the dining area on Friday evenings from 6:30 p.m. until 11 p.m., or until the musicians eat all the naan their sheet music is written on.

Rassi Mahendran spent years in the hotel industry catering to his guests' whims—a skill for pleasing people that transferred to his restaurant's menu, which aims to satisfy every type of palate. A 2009 feature in dine.To described his cuisine as “an exotic flow of flavours fusing Indian ingredients with Mediterranean cuisines.” Tandoori chicken joins peppers, cheese, and housemade tomato sauce atop whole-wheat pizza crusts, and the same succulent morsels intertwine with fettuccine noodles in a curry cream sauce. Chefs simmer lamb and beef in zesty vindaloo sauce and marry potato and peas with a blend of spices. In the dining room, an eye-catching chandelier bathes tangerine walls with warm light as tables populate with fried masala potato balls and chicken pakoras that can be shared with a date or stealthily hidden from your shadow.
