Extremely disappointed with the experience I had at Dhabha. Calling this Indian restaurant is like insulting Indian food. Although it smells good in there, none of the dishes we tried were authentic. Indian food is known for its cooking in the spices. This is the first Indian restaurant I came across North America that serves under cooked meat. My girlfriend threw up as soon as we got to the hotel and I had a bad night. Never in my life did Indian food do that to me... And above all, I gave my girlfriend huge build up about this place and we drove two hours to get there and we left with nothing but disappointment... Neither the service is good nor the food... A lifetime experience as to how you can screw up Indian food...
The most fantastic delivery experience I have ever had! This was my first experience with the food and after reading some of the reviews was hesitant. But they could not have been more wrong!!
The person who answered (I believe it was the owner) took the time to recommend complimentary dishes and make suggestions, and was very open to customizing dishes to our taste. We ordered butter chicken, saag paneer, and a mixed veg. The tastes were phenomenal - I am an Indian food lover and this was by far the best I have experienced. I wouldn't hesitate to order again.
If you want authentic indian food, this is not the place to go, this coming from an Indian person. Every dish tastes the same and the essence of the vegetable dishes is not at all captured. It appears that there was no care when the food was being prepared. Will never go there again. Very dissatisfied!
Guys - This place is a hyped up place. i went there - the semolina has only 4 puris for $ 10 - can you believe that? all dishes are small in quantity + there is no service ...they do not really cater well. the food might be tasty - though the chhole and the gobi tasted same. saag paneer was ok. appetizers are not so good qty - if you want pay more to get family size. if you are looking for a good indian meal - my suggestion - do not go there. else find a better place in queen's street like little india. or Brars in Dundas, missississauga.
I am from the IT Sector, and do visit toronto once in a month or so. I entertain my corporate clients there quite often and infact found service very impeccable and professional. I know the ticket is high at Dhaba, but if you are looking for a cheap place or discounted price dishes or deals, then honestly Dhaba is surely not the place. I wonder from the review the last visit was in July 2007 and how come the review is submitted on Sept,30th 2007. WEIRD eh....and by the way the review does not say if the food was not tasteful.
Just because the portions were small or discounted coupon was not honoured does not mean the place is worse in the City. Last but not least, I am a proud Indian too. Come on people let us raise our standards and start spending some good bucks on good food. I am sure the whole world is running for food and money.
small portions, terrible service, long delays, order mixups, did not honor toronto entertainment coupon after I indicated that I was chargerd for an extra dish. Definitely not worth it .... it you are looking for good food this is not the place to go.
I and 2 of my cousins went to this restaurant Saturday night. We are all Indians. I am not sure if that was the reason that the waiter thought he could take us for granted. It took them 15 min to get someone to get us seated even when the restaurant was almost empty. Just as we had orders an appetizer, the waiter informed us that the appetizer was for 12.45$ and asked us if that will be ok or not, indicating that we should consider the price of the appetizer before ordering it and check our pockets if we had enough cash for it or not. Later when we started to place an order for the meals, he 'informed' us that per head we should be ordering worth more than 20$ excluding tax. considering the prices printed on the menu, each dish is around 15 $, I am not sure why we would not order food around 20 $ per head, but the waiter thought it was better he reminded us about that. All in all it was a very sour experience for us.
Yesterday, me and my wife went to dhaba for a casual dinner. The food was the worst Indian food I have ever had. The chicken biriyani didnt look like chicken biriyani...it was more of cumin biriyani( I mean it ...the chef has unloaded half a kg of cumin in it). I complained about it and all he nodded as if to say that he knew of it already and could care less.The prices are also very high. The wait staff were rude. Never asked for water.Horrible horrible experience. This is one restuarant that you want to avoid in toronto. Try Aroma...better food and great service.
We were invited to Dhaba, by some of our friends who are true connaisseurs, and believe me when I say it, as they do own a business which goes neck to neck with the restaurant business. My friend's wife Jane, who is a wine consultant to a reputed international wine producer told me that she was a big fan of this place. We were seated by an elegant and smiling hostess wrapped in a gorgeous saree. And guess what! We were presented the basket of crisp, round some sort of lentil wafers. My friend picked up a prix fix menu as we were to catch Phantom of the Opera. It was a purely divine sensation as I bit into my rack of lamb. The Indian Shiraz complimented the food just right, an excellent choice by Jane. I was out of this world wondering about what the heck the chef did to my lamb. My wife was whispering in my ear that she was having an explosion of flavors in her mouth. The presentation was just top notch. Usually you don't find this kind of food in your plate, you always dream of this quality food with such an impeccable service. The chicken xacutti was a flavorful blast with crispy the garlic naan bread. Jane told us that they had been regulars since Chef P. K. was highlited by some post reviews in his previous restaurant up north. I was intruduced to a new version of divine food. Can you imagine when you are finishing off your last course, i.e. a true minty dessert with the last bite to the pistachio milk medallion poured with fresh mango. I can only think of a child's true expression of saying, 'Yum Yum!'
Thank you Dhaba, thank you Chef P. K. and above all thank you Jane.
