Took one for the team last week and went for yet another curry, just so I could review the place. You’re welcome.
Having checked the menu online beforehand, I was very excited to see a rare sighting of Bombay Aloo, one of my favourite Indian food dishes. Not being a rice fan, I usually substitute it for that.
I complemented that with the Chicken Karahi (listed as Karai Chicken on the menu). Note that it’s not included on the menu in the restaurant but they will cook it on request.
I asked for medium spice levels but the server mentioned better to go up a notch to medium-hot, so I did. It was definitely a good recommendation and I soon had my hanky out to blow my nose. Wasn’t ultra-hot but just getting up there. Perfect level.
I liked these two dishes a great deal because, as you can see in the photo, there was lots of sauce which I love. Threw in a few poppadoms, a side of the spicy mixed pickles and I was sorted.
The portions are very big and mine could have easily fed two people, but I had the leftovers the next night = just as good.
North Of Bombay gets a Brits in Toronto 4/5 stars. It’s currently now my local curry house of choice.
