Consistantly one of Canada's finest East Indian ( or in fact any type ) restaurants. Nice room with fabulous food.

When we travel to the City we like to always go here for dinner; although it has been a few years since we ate there, so we were really looking forward to it. The menu has changed quite a bit and there is no papadoms which is our favourite part of Indian food. The samasas were over cooked and dry and the chicken in our butter chicken was dry as well. We had six different dishes and were not overly impressed. This place we always used to recommend, but I think we won’t be trying to again and looking else. Perhaps new owners or new cooks. The atmosphere is nice and the level of noise is great, but unfortunately the food is nothing to rave about.

Food was really good. The naan bread was the best part of the meal!

No one was there to greet us and therefore did not mark our reservation properly on Open Table.

My husband and I went there before a hockey game with a Groupon. The buffet had great selections and the service was friendly. I hoped the dishes would be spicy but they are definitely trying to please everyone so everything was pretty mild but still flavourful. We looked at the happy hour menu and would consider going back just for that.

Made reservations with OpenTable but none of the staff were aware. Maybe they don’t know they have it, don’t actually use it, or don’t know how to use it?

Food was delicious.

Service was ok. Definitely not as good as other near by restaurants.

Food was excellent, service could have been better. Waiter only came by once and did not bring the bill, had to go the the cashier to get my bill. It was very empty so he was not busy.

We made a reservation for this restaurant. When we got to there, nobody was at the front to greet and seat us. We waited for about 5 minutes. Eventually someone came to seat us and letting us know ow it's a buffet tonight so anything else would take too long so we decided to have the buffet. Most of food was mediocre but the pakoras, tandoori chicken and butter chicken were good. Some of the fruit looked like it was sitting out for too long and didn't look very appetizing. When I asked for a refill for water, we never got it. Unfortunately, the entire experience was mediocre.

We had a wonderful buffet dinner on a Friday night. Only complaint would be that we had to ask for Naan, and were not offered.

I wanted spicy food, and i told the waitress but she was like it’s going to be too spicy you wont be able to eat it so i told her i just want my food to be spicy she said okay, but the food was sooo blend, my brother got Biryani and when i tasted it it felt like i was eating boiled rice, i got qorma which was okay it had taste but the fish pakoras also tasted very very blend
I have had really good food there before but this was the first time i went with my family and i was not satisfied

Buffets are always a concern to us because the food quality can be from good to really bad.
Rest easy, Hawali is on the really good side with great quality, flavours and variety.
They also do fresh cooked Naan which was up there with the best we have had.
It is a big restaurant but can be very private or good for groups.
We were impressed by the service staff who made sure everything wasok but were unobtrusive.
We enjoyed the decor and quiet ambience
The whole place was impecably clean and we enjoyed watching the Tandoor in action
