The intimate and darkly lit resto is romantically atmospheric, and the colourful bangles that almost act as crown moulding are an especially nice touch.The service is good and food, served a la carte, is varied in its selection and satisfying in both taste and portion.The samosa starter is smaller than one might expect, with three or four bite-sized curried potato or chicken pastries sitting atop a plate attractively adorned with sweet and savory sauces.
The samosas -- large in size and not too spicy -- are a good deal at only a dollar or so each.
Also worth trying is the Baingan Patiala (made with eggplant, potatoes, onions, tomatoes and raisons) and aloo gobi (made with cauliflower and potatoes).
There are also two Mississauga locations -- one at Hurontario and Eglinton and the other at Erin Mills Parkway and Battleford.
It can be a quick pre-movie or pre-drinking mini-feast that comes in under .
It can also be an exotic date night outing, made more romantic by the restaurant's use of deep reds and elegant golds and crisp linen tablecloths.
It's hard to determine what Mississauga restos are the best (there are lots to choose from), but we're going to try to recommend a list of restos that sit at the middle and high ends of the Indian food spectrum.5) The Host The Host, centrally located on City Centre Drive off of Robert Speck Parkway, is a finer dining establishment, though still relatively affordable (two can expect to eat for - with drinks and tip).One of the nicest touches is the Afgani naan, a traditional naan infused with dried fruit and coconut shavings - perfect for those who like to mix sweet and spicy.4) Bombay Bhel If you think you've seen Bombay Bhel in more than one city, you're right. Having said that, don't let the "chain" word deter you from sampling Bombay Bhel's reasonably priced, generously portioned wares.The butter chicken (stewed in an impressive and delightfully viscous buttery tomato sauce) is second to none.One order can easily feed three people, and the sauce begs to be spread over naan bread once the chicken is finished.
