I was regular customer at Indus Junction and IMO was one of the best Indian restaurants this city had to offer. It was not the busiest and was probably not being run as well as it could.

I tired Apalla last night and the food was terrible! I also found out that the original chef is no longer there.

I give this place 6-12 months before they are no longer there!

RIP - Indus Junction - If anyone knows where the chef went to please tell!

I found the food at Apalla to be wonderful. The flavours were amazing and not too overpowering. The AYCE buffet at $8.95 is a steal. I wish this guy well. The owner is very accommodating! I shall return and spread the word about this place!!

obviously never had decent curry before. I suppose if you like it overpowered with vinegar, then you're luck is in!

Marcus doesnt know what he's talking about. Im actually indian and the food is amazing! Its called real authentic indian food just modernized. And i know the owner and he's young and very VERY experienced. Jane is right its wonderful. The owner/chef has worked at restaurants like Amaya, Dhaba and Baber. If you call their food terrible then you shouldnt be eating Indian food at all. Those restaurants use his recipes and are considered top Indian Restaurants in Toronto. Did you know this chef has worked with Susur Lee. And FYI Sanjiv recipes were old and doesnt have half the experience/knowledge as Apalla's Chef does. Have a nice day!

I don't know what I am talking about? That's rich! Does being Indian guarantee you that you are a good judge of Indian food? That is being a bit presumptuous if you ask me.
Did you ever eat at Indus Junction? The food was amazing and were one of the few people that actually know how to cook a naan bread. Not like the soggy rubbish I was served up!
I regards to working with Susur Lee (whom I've met and eaten at both his TO restaurants) does not necessarily mean he was any good. I worked with people who are now millionaires, does not mean that I am one...far from it!
I've eaten some of the best curries in the world from England to Brampton and will not be eating Indian food served up by Apalla or any other restaurant you care to mention as being 'good'.
Have a nice day!

I dined at Apalla a few times now and have to say that the food is amazing. I just found out that the owner/chefs change the menu every 3 months, so you have something new to try everytime you go back. The Calamari pakora is to die for. OMG!!! And i love the new Achari Chicken. Its also delicious. But at the end of your meal always make alittle room for their dessert the Falooda Kulfi. Its the best FRESH homemade ice cream i have had in a long time. This restaurant is really worth trying. Its good affordable and they have takeout specials too!

Ricky is a great guy. His food is flavory and not too overpowering. He catered my Dad's birthday dinner and delivered it himself. I too wish him well and yes, the AYCE Buffet @ $8.95 is a real bargoon.

Is flavory a real word? maybe it is if you are playing Scrabble! AYCE buffets are for people that have no appreciation for food! Maybe they should pay us $8.95 to eat his food...now that would be a real BARGOON! lol

I eat at Apalla probably once a week or get take out, and I think the food is fucken delicious. If u haven't tried it yet, ur missing out on something good.

And this Marcus guy needs to relax. If u don't like it then thats cool but stop talking so much shit man. Take it easy on here.

I just checked this place out a few days ago. I remember Indus Junction being there.

The food was really good, my friends and I enjoyed it a lot and gave our respects to the chef. I don't go to Indian Restaurants often (I eat enough of it at home, lol!) but I found the food here to be very delicious. I'll definitely recommend this place to my buddies.

Off topic: Why the hate, Marcus? You've said your piece, why not move on? Don't let people who criticize your opinion get the best of you.

Cheers!

I AM HONESTLY IN LOVE WITH THIS RESTAURANT! I GET TAKE OUT PROBABLY 2-3 TIMES A WEEK ON MY WAY HOME FROM WORK. THE FOOD IS SOOOO DELICIOUS THAT I CANT STOP GOING. THEY JUST CHANGED THERE MENU AND NOW I CANT WAIT TO TRY THE NEW ITEMS.

IF ANYONE IS LOOKING FOR SOMETHING DIFFERENT AND NOT YOUR TYPICAL EASTERN INDIAN FOOD, YOU MUST TRY THIS NORTHERN STYLE INDIAN FOOD. TRUST ME ITS DIFFERENT FROM YOUR TYPICAL CURRIES!!! ITS SO GOOD!
