This restaurant has to be the finest Indian restaurant in the city. We had the Butter Chicken and tandoori chicken it was presented well and the taste was stunning. If you like Indian food this is the only place to eat

I went there with my family, they have very less options on their menu but whatever the options are, all of them are super tasty. I almost tried 60% of the vegetarian menu :-) !!! Its worth going there again. Prices are economic too.

With a re-designed menu, this restaurant improves its Indian authenticity with some very interesting additions. As one of our local 'hang-outs' we are pleased to see the chef continue to test new ideas and initiatives while still retaining some favorites. Service is paced but attentive....More

A very interesting menu, not at all traditional for Indian food. Well presented, with a very solid service credo. The portions are quite large. Menu items such as butter chicken (not very standard) and lamb lollypops are favourites. Wine selection limited. Remember that spicy foods...More

This Indian restaurant appears to have moved to Yonge Street, a few blocks north of Lawrence. The food was excellent, though a bit expensive and the service was very, very slow. It was disappointing to find a very limited beer selection - certainly no ale...More

Description
Joanne Kates (The Globe and Mail Restaurant Critic) writes…”Amaya, which opened recently in the (renovated) premises of the former Jov, is heaven-sent. The combination of silken service and excellent ingredients freshly cooked, with sensitive spicing, is seductive in the way that only the food of the subcontinent can be - rich, assertive, complex, exotic.” Just as the food avoids clichés, so does the setting. The 40-seat dining room is accented with subtle hints of India through stunning photography creating an inviting atmosphere that is casual and friendly yet elegant and sophisticated.
