Light of India
Long and narrow, this small, warmly lit restaurant in the heart of the Glebe features a jumbled Indian decor and candles on the tables. The family-run restaurant features a daily luncheon and Sunday brunch buffet, and an à la carte dinner menu of traditional dishes from the northeastern region of India. The extensive and flavourful menu also includes a number of combination platters and dishes perfect for sharing and sampling. On weekends, the restaurant is packed with well-dressed couples and groups of all ages.
I enjoyed the food a great deal, especially the authentic nan, however the service was absolutely abysmal. A cranky woman routinely barked commands at the guests at our table, to "give me that!" and so on. Placing my order was painfully confusing, as the server didn't seem to understand my order even though it was straightforward. At the end, we wished to settle our bill, and there was much confusion and back-and-forth about what it was that I had actually ordered. We never saw a bill, and were expected to just pay. At that point, we just wanted out of there.
No food is worth that frustrating service experience.
All I would like to say about this place is that the food is amazing and the service is excelent. I love this place and the portion of the food is lot. I been to many Indian places and they really cheap on food but not this place. I also Indian and I do not agree with the negetive feed back that 2 of the people left. All I have to say is that go and tast the food and see for your self.
Best Indian food I've ever had. Lunch buffet is fabulous. Great variety of foods, along with many options for vegetarians. If you are going for lunch, get there early, as it can be busy and it is not a very big place. Overall it is great! I can't wait to go back!
On a recent hunger fueled restaurant search, i took my friend for her first indian taste of food. This place is very small, dimly lit, and the buffet had only 6 choices of sides wiht the stale, dry naan. The "service" consisted of one elderly man who kindly brought out hot buttered naan after i mentioned how dry it was. The buttered chicken was sweet and the chicken was rubbery..it may be because i have had excellent experience with indan restaurants in toronto and at home but this place was very sub-par. The only highlight was the mint chocolate at the end...
The staff is welcoming and super friendly. Good atmosphere. Welcome families and children. Just be prepared to wait a bit longer or ask for extra papadums to appease little antsy appetites if bringing children. Buffet is a must try for sure. Worth every penny. Ask for suggestions as a first timer.
Was introduced by colleagues about 15 years ago. And even though we no longer work together, we still meet for brunch occasionally to catch-up on gossip. The buffet, which is all that I've ever had there, is phenomenal, the staff is great; friendly, always smiling. They seem to enjoy what they do. The food is unbeatable. I have tried other Indian restaurants but they never measure up to this one. The atmosphere is reasonably classy without being "stuffy". Great food.
The food was not at all good. We were just visiting Ottawa and had a terrible experience in this restaurant. The food was ABSOLUTELY "TASTELESS". It was nowhere close to the taste of Indian food. I wish them luck.
