The Host -Toronto
Excellent Indian food and very pleasant atmosphere.
My favourite spot for a quiet but ambient dinner with family or friends. Outstanding food, warm plates, and lovely service. Always a pleasure.
Great food slow service
Amazing service and super good food.
We were a party of two and shared a delicious dinner of the chili shrimp for our appetizer and the lamb roganjosh, chicken tikka masala and the shrimp biryani for our main. Every dish was delicious and the service was great! We will definitely go back!
The second time I ate there that week. Please see my previous review.
I was seated in the dining room at the rear which was quiet and dimly lit.
Noodle Bhel was very good and refreshing.
Dilli Walla Butter Chicken with Basmati rice was good but not as good as the Noodle Bhel.
This time I had Keith's Canadian beer, which was better than the Cheetah.
My waiter seemed to be somewhat distracted — possibly by a large party dining in the same room.
He didn't bring me the usual plate of puppodums to start and service was somewhat erratic.
Since I was in no hurry, it was not a problem.
Great Indian food as usual and good service.
I discovered this place many years ago. I love Indian food and I make a point of dining here whenever I come to Toronto. The menu is varied and one can hardly go wrong.
I have always been impressed by the number of Indians — often whole families with children — dining here when I visit. I take that as a very good sign.
I very much enjoyed the Manchurian Ghobi recommended by my waiter. The Lamb Rogan Josh with Naan was very nice, and so was Pistachio Kulfi.
Cheetah beer needed more hops. I gather that Kingfisher, which I like, is no longer available.
Delicious lamb & naan!
We dined at The Host for lunch. They provided a smaller menu which offered a great selection of all our favorites and at a great price! A few of our choices .... samosas, butter chicken and their insanely delicious Naan bread were enjoyed by all. Service was excellent.
Excellent restaurant. I have been dining there for many years and enjoy it immensely.
Only and the best place for authentic tasting north indian (punjabi) food. Nice ambeince. Fine dining experience. Love this place!
The Host is a wonderful restaurant --- fabulous authentic food, and the most wonderful warm and calm ambiance! From celebrating a birthday, anniversary and wedding --- it's my go-to restaurant!
Delicious but service was quite slow.
Food was amazing taste and the service very friendly. Would go again
The restaurant itself is quite dated and the atmosphere is not what you would expect to take a date to. The food was a hit and miss, the Bread was great, Lamb Vindaloo was good but the Kadai Chicken was just horrible.
We called the server over and told him that the sauce was basically just tomato sauce without any flavor or taste and boiled pieces of chicken and instead with of apologizing or attempting to correct it he just stood there for sometime and then just left as if it was our problem.
So, overall I would not go there again and definitely would not advise any of my friends to do so either.
