The India Bistro is in a great location, on a bustling street, from where store and people watching is a super fun way to kill time.

We got a Dal Tadka, Veg Methi, Palak Paneer Naan, Aloo Paratha, & Rasmalai. The food was piping hot and delicately flavoured. The service was amazing too, very friendly staff. We really enjoyed our meal here.

Tandori Fish Sizzlers with mint sauce i tried first time in my life. it is soo good force me to eat all even even having no appetite. Definitely come back and will try other sizzlers too. Service is prompt and good.

We visited recently with our Vegetarian children and the selections did not disappoint, Eggplant Bharta, Aloo Gobi, Dal and Garlic Naan. Good service, although there was a strange incident on this past visit. My wife always orders a "Plain Lassi" (no salt, no sweet) and has had it here before many times. On this occasion, the waiter told her there was no such thing, in great detail and assured her she would like the salty lassi. Not wanting to press on, she agreed and was disappointed, both in the lassi and in the whole interaction.

My wife and I tried a sampler platter which gave us a wide variety of India dishes: Chicken spinach, slow cooked lentils in spicy sauce, a chopped vegetable medley , rice , and naan (like pita bread). The lentils was absolutely delicious! Everything was fresh and not greasy at all. Restaurant atmosphere was nice as well. Our waiter (manager) was very versed on all dishes and gave us advice and answered our questions. Very nice dinner!

The food from India Bistro - we've ordered the butter chicken and naan three times - is yummy and that's a shame because we won't be ordering from here again. Having ordered delivery three times and having food arrive late and lukewarm or cold two out of the three times is a deal breaker. That's a 67% failure rate. It seems to be the weekends that they simply cannot cope with - the only time our food arrived in a timely manner and hot was during our one mid-week order.

Our third order last weekend was the proverbial nail in the coffin. We placed our order at 6:40 p.m. through the Just Eat app and were told (by email) that it would be delivered at 7:40 p.m. An hour seemed long to us because we are only 1.5 kms away from the restaurant, but we settled in and waited.

When our order had not arrived at 7:55 p.m., we called to enquire. The woman promised us that it was on its way and would be arriving in 5 minutes. At 8:15, food still not here, we called again. We spoke with the manager and he simply did not care; he was short with us and only served to escalate our frustration. Our food finally arrived at 8:20 p.m. - that's a 1 hour and 40 minute wait for delivery of a simple dinner for two from a restaurant 1.5 kms away - and, to our dismay, it was stone cold (we had to microwave everything before eating).

So long, India Bistro. We are confident that we will not have any difficulty finding another Indian restaurant in the area that is capable of delivering a hot dinner in a timely manner (weekends included).
