I just had takeaway from the Kanata location. Very bland lamb rogan josh, boring chicken korma and average butter chicken. I had goat jalfrezi that was mostly bones, though the little meat I got was tender. The chicken dishes appeared to be cooked chicken pieces...More

Though the lamb was very tender and very nice on its own, the sauce was very spicy considering we ordered mild. The sauce had too much tomatoes and was also very sweet considering it was Lamb Bhuna. Lastly, rice was very bland.

Bland, no salt in the food. How can you eat a naan that has no salt. Ordered aloo gobhi, under cooked and no salt. What a shame, yet they charge you without pity. No honour at all.

Ordered for the first time. It's only been open since September. The food was excellent. We had the CHAAT Aloo Tikki for appetizer, very tasty. The naan bread was good. The Jalfrezzi beef was melt in your mouth and the Madras was good. If they...More

Ordered hakka noodles, chili chicken, butter chicken and na an. Took 1 hour for take out and was disappointed with everything. I agree with the other reviewer that the 5 dollar Indian food at Walmart is tastier. Try Rangoli in Orleans instead.

I've tried it a couple of times due to the price + location and it's just not worth it. They can't even get a Naan right. As stated in the title, even those $5 frozen Indian meals taste better. Pay a bit more and eat...More
