We order take out/delivery and the food arrived in no time and it was hot and delicious. We order chicken tikka masala and ginger curry chicken both were medium spicy and it did not fail to deliver a slight kick. Just perfect for us. We also order vegetable somas and it was equally fabulous. And the naan bread was amazing.

My family and I went there for supper and were really impressed. I ordered Tikki Masala (they have a real Tandoor that you can see from the seating area) that was cooked to perfection. We also ordered a platter that had six or seven little dishes, all of which were very flavourful. Service was prompt and friendly, and the price... More

We come to Ottawa once a month to visit our daughters and are always on the lookout for new restaurants to try. I had seen their ad in the New Edinburgh Times and we decided to give it a try. We arrived to a lovely room, but no one to greet us. Finally a reluctant and silent man showed us... More

Good variety of veg n meat. Naans are freshly made. Beware of food marked hot. You may want to taste it first. Overall, good dining place

Been to Host India for dinner buffet on Sundays -- a great variety of meat and vegitable based curries and all of the fixings that make eating Indian food so interesting. We have been here 3 or 4 times now and it has consistently been good, buffet is always hot and they are constantly checking and replaceing items so they... More

I've been coming here for years and while I try other Indian restaurants in the area on occasion, I keep going back to Host India as my tried and true favourite. When you order spicy food, you get hot, delicious flavours. They also have the best variety of dishes in their Sunday buffet. There are usually at least 4 vegetarian... More

Great indian buffet with lots of selection. Awesome tandoori chicken, great sauces and many other options Definitely worth checking out if you're in the area or visiting someone at the Montfort Hospital.

I gave this place a second chance and I was still not satisfied. The sauces tasted like it was made with tomato soup, chicken and beef dishes I ordered tasted like it was cooked and then put n the sauce. Definitely not spicy like what you'd expect, the naan was overcooked, I ordered paleo rice, this good and there was... More

We've visited Host of India many times for the Sunday buffet. The selection us small but it's tasty. The naan bread is divine and the veggie dishes are very well prepared, as well as the butter chicken. The meal is just under $20. We have noticed loud, unruly children there with parents who seem to ignore their bad behaviour. When... More

We stopped here after a craving for Indian. The restaurant is very quaint, however, you will never find better naan! We ordered samosas, garlic naan and shared lamb curry - with garlic and paprika - it WAS SO GOOD! The owners/managers were very attentive. Although we were there on a slow night, if the place is in full swing, the... More
