On the 5th of March 2017, we decided to try Dhaba Express Restaurant in Bayers Lake, Halifax. One of our reasons to go there was that we had a $ 40.00 gift card (whose receipt was attached to the card). We had our Sunday brunch from 12.00 pm to 1:15 pm. The food was mediocre and many of the ingredients... More

Finally real Indian take out in Halifax. We have now either eaten in their small restaurant or ordered pick up. I have never been to India. I have been privileged to eat at what were to be excellent Indian restaurants in England and most importantly in the homes of families from India here in Canada. Dhaba is so good it... More

We had heard a lot about this place. It looks pretty grim from the outside as it is in strip mall. Don't let that stop you from going in, the food was fantastic and fresh. We will go again soon.

I have been here a few times out of convenience. The food is okay. They use way too much oil and salt. If you mention anything about their food they say that they have been voted the best Indian food by a local paper for a few years so its probably not their food that is the problem. Their biggest...

Was working in Bayers Lake and a colleague recommended. Several of us went for lunch. It was well-appointed and service was quick, considering it was lunchtime. Had the Meat Thali, which was good. A little pricey for lunch, but I would go again given the chance.

I don't live in the are, but I've heard so many good reviews, I had to find an excuse to try it. We weren't disappointed. Started with vegetarian samosas. Small, but less batter and not as long in the fryer. Healthier and very tasty. A bit hot I couldn't wait to let it cool off and burnt the roof of... More

A friend invited me to check out this restaurant which is hidden in the Cetre of Bayers Lake Industrial Park. It took me a while to find it. Parking was a challenge as I got there around lunch time. Not sure what it is like during dinner time. But you know what, I will let you know because I do... More

The food here is consistently wonderful. The lunch specials are great. The Saturday and Sunday buffets vary from week to week and are all the best. There is now a dessert section a few doors down and it's also wonderful.
