PukkaPukka

PukkaPukka is the second outpost of the popular Pukka on St. Clair West, and you’ll find modern twists on classic Indian dishes like their Samosas made with sweet potato and Cauliflower tossed in Indian spices.

They’ve got a pretty good selection of vegan and vegetarian dishes, like their Tofu Tikka Masala and Pumpkin Curry!

There is some seating inside the restaurant, but it’s definitely more takeout-style.

You can even shop their curries and meal kits at their retail shop if you want to take some home with you.

They’re located in Midtown Toronto, just north of Yonge & Eglinton!

Roti Cuisine of India

There ain’t nothing more satisfying than a mouthwatering bite of roti stuffed with delicious curry.

Roti Cuisine of India serves up some of the best roti in Toronto, and they source their fresh ingredients from local farmers’ markets.

You can choose between roti or rice dishes, and they have both vegetarian and meat options!

If you don’t know what roti is, it’s an Indian flatbread, and the roti dish is basically curry stuffed inside a roti wrap.

Their Lamb Korma Roti is my absolute fave, and I can have it as two meals because the portions are massive.

There is minimal seating inside the restaurant, but it’s definitely more of a takeout spot!

LOCATION: 308 Dupont St, Toronto, ON


Indian Roti House

Indian Roti House is another amazing roti spot in Toronto, and they have a huge selection of vegetarian, meat, and seafood roti.

The Lamb Korma Roti here is also pretty dang amazing!

You can find them on Church in the Village or on Queens Quay by the Harbourfront.

You can also order ahead on their website for pickup, which is super convenient!

Butter Chicken Roti

You can never have too much roti, so here’s one last roti spot in Toronto you need to check out.

Butter Chicken Roti is yet another delicious spot for roti in the city, and they’ve got a bunch of locations across the GTA.

They’ve got tons of different roti options for both meat eaters and vegetarians, and you can add some additional toppings if you want.

Their Butter Chicken Roti is their signature, and it’s v delicious.

You can even choose your spiciness on 6 different levels, ranging from mild to nuclear hot (hot AKA the third spiciness level is perfect for me).

You can also find some Indian street food dishes like Panipuri and Aloo Tikki Chaat!

Rikki Tikki

Enjoy fun and modern takes on Indian cuisine at Rikki Tikki in Kensington Market.

You’ll find fusion dishes like their Paneer Tikka Fries made with their house-made paneer, as well as classic dishes like Butter Chicken.

Little India in Toronto, Canada

Little India Restaurant

My family and I have been visiting Little India for well over a decade – it’s one of our favourite restaurants in Toronto!

They’ve been around for almost three decades, and they serve up their secret family recipes.

Literally everything on their menu is incredible, but my go-to dishes are their Butter Chicken, Tandoori Chicken, Onion Bhajia, and Garlic Naan.

I’d definitely recommend ordering a bunch of dishes to share, that way you can try as many things as possible!

If you’re in the mood for a sweet treat, order a Mango Lassi (a delicious mango yogurt drink) or Gulab Jamun (sweet balls of goodness).

Little India Restaurant in Toronto

They used to actually have an all-you-can-eat lunch buffet here before the pandemic, but now they just have lunch combos.

Their restaurant has a romantic vibe with all the warm colours, so it’s a perfect spot for date nights as well.

They’re also open every single day of the week from 11:30 AM to 10 PM, and you can find them on Queen West near Osgoode Station!

Banjara Indian Cuisine in Toronto

Banjara Indian Cuisine

Banjara is another favourite spot of my family’s, and we especially love their Lamb Korma and Butter Chicken.

Apparently a lot of celebrities love coming here when they visit Toronto, which is pretty cool!

They have one location on Bloor (near the Annex) and one location in Scarborough.

Their restaurant also has a super nice vibe with tons of seating if you’re looking to dine in, and they’re open 7 days a week!

LOCATION: Various locations


Savera Indian Cuisine

This cute and cozy spot on St. Clair West serves up all kinds of delicious Indian dishes, including plenty of meat, seafood, and vegetarian options.

Aroma is located in Toronto’s Entertainment District, so it’s the perfect restaurant to eat at if you’re watching a show nearby.

They have a 3-course lunch special during the week, and they’ve even got a vegetarian option.

The chef actually cooked in the kitchens of 5-star hotels in India, which is probably why the food is so great!
