Indian Kiss

Indian Kiss TorontoIndian Kiss must believe there's some gap to be filled in the Indian restaurant landscape in the Junction to have the courage to open in a mini strip mall off the main stretch of Dundas.

Having lived in the junction area for over 5 years I’ve had my share of local Indian food. Indian Kiss does fill many gaps in the landscape starting with unbelievably awesome food and take-out only. I have been to all the other Indian Restaurants in the neighborhood numerous times, and the food here blows all of the others out of the water. Since it opened about a year ago, I have been here over a dozen time and never been disappointed with the quality, quantity or flavours...always consistent. Having read other overly positive reviews elsewhere on Curry Twist, I decided to give them another try. Although the food was not terrible it in no way came close to the flavour, quality or even quantity at Indian Kiss. Maybe people like the service, but I only talk about food. I definatley pay more at Indian Kiss for my food, but I also save on alcohol, tips, and greasy appetizers that do nothing but fill me up. In ways, I understand why Indian restaurants push their cheap samosas on people, so people fill up and then they can skimp on the quantity in the main course. That is what I love about Indian Kiss, the fact that they don’t sell greasy samosas or pakoras, they simply sell dinner and no B.S. My favorites are their Butter Chicken (out of this world), Lamb Palak(simple awesome), Bagara Bengan (currently an addicition), Daal (not watery at all) and their Rice (the best rice I have ever had). And anyone who has ordered Indian food anywhere will tell you their portions are generous. They do not skimp on the meat (or vegetables) for that matter. I have mentioned this place to friends. Many of them frequent Indian Kiss a few times a month now. A couple of others have taken a look at their menu online and came back to me saying, this place is expensive. Firstly, I tell them if they want Indian Food like they have never had before or if they want flavours that go way beyond anyplace in the GTA, then Indian Kiss will fit the bill. If they are looking for a server or host in a turban to tickle their butt, or looking for more style than food with substance, or even if they want cheap sub-par Indian Food to go to Gerrard St., Brampton, or even down the street. For people who are on an ever-ending search for great Indian food and food only, Indian Kiss is that place.

I will second Grant's review... we LOVE Indian Kiss! We live in the neighbourhood having moved here 2 years ago from the 905 and thought we might be hard pressed to find a good indian food restaurant in the area, but I'm glad to report we were very wrong! My husband's background is Indian, so finding a good indian restaurant was a tall order indeed! We love the paneer palak, rice, naan, butter chicken and lamb dishes. I also like the idea that they are strictly "take-out"... nice change from the other cheesy indian restaurants further west on Dundas. The only downside is the location in terms of access... very tricky getting in/out of the parking lot if driving, otherwise the place itself inside looks great. We'll be customers of Indian Kiss for years to come.

You guys have got to be kidding. In the GTA!! Toronto, right? I think you guys need to get out of the Junction and see what real Indian food is, and how good and less than half the price it can be... Not a fan of their food, but a fan of their naan, - but they won't let you buy it, citing it as against policy without whole meal items. So one must endure food that is ridiculously over-priced and really not very good to purchase their bread... Never come across such a policy anywhere, ever.

I have to agree with the last poster. I tried it once and my wife loved it, but I found it a tad overpriced for a takeout (portions were large, though), and to me each dish had somewhat of a vinegary (sharp) taste to them, that I was unfamiliar with from all other Indian food that I have eaten in my time. I could not figure out what this flavour was and if someone could explain it to me it might help.

To start off with, my wife and I are huge fans of Curry Twist. Reading Grant's review made us decide to give Indian Kiss a try. The woman on the phone was lovely and super nice when we went to pick up our food. The food, however, was only so so. Not anywhere in the same league as Curry Twist. While the portion size was good, the price was $2-3 higher than similar items at CT, and not that much bigger. I wish them all the best, and maybe this is more your style of Indian cuisine, but we won't be going back.

let them die already. Priced higher than dine-in, and SMALLER portions, unless you count sauce as being generous. I tried a few times within the first year of them opening and the food was great but a total rip. no thanks

This is cleary the best Indian Food in Toronto. I have tried all the other top rated spot have found nowhere near the quality. Now if I can't get to Indian Kiss, I have to order things that aren't on their menu so I will not be dissapointed. Remember to order around 30 minutes ahead as pretty much everything is made from scratch. Fresh delish food !!!
