Well worth the visit. Don't let the basic decor and down to earth atmosphere fool you. The chef achieves a fine balancing act of mellow but rich Indian flavours, each morsel stands on it's own. The fresh nan bread and mango lassi are a delight.

The best chicken tikka wrap I had ever eaten!! A must try item when wondering what to order at Shafali Bazaar in the Byward Market. Loved their naans and curries. Samosas are delicious as well. Friendly family run cafe. A place worth your while to check out. Thumbs up!!

Small stall style restaurant in the central part of Byward market. Both sons had onion bhajis and chicken tikka wraps, whilst the boss and I had fresh Dahl and Naan. All cooked from scratch on site, really good quality and a reasonable price. Great!

What a special place to be treated like a special customer! The folks operating this lovely little restaurant were as wonderful as the food on offer! The food was excellently prepared and especially pleasing. The restaurant offers take out or sit down and an excellent variety of stellar dishes. We tried a variety and each item was exquisite.

Do not expect the best indian cuisine, do not expect the best service. They do not accept any foreigner credit or debit card.

After living in Asia and BC for 7 years I was walking around the market trying to decide where I could grab some food. Then I remembered this Indian place in the Market Mall. To my surprise it was still open. I quickly ordered the spicy chicken curry, naan bread and 2 chicken samosas to go. The ladies here are... More

Food is okay and the owner seemed friendly however we felt deceived upon seeing the bill. We wanted to have samosa with Choley. They gave us the option to order the Choley as a side and charged us 13 dollars for it!!!!! So for 4 samosas with Choley we paid 29 dollars (including taxes). Same order in a GTA restaurant... More
