The Host is a fine Indian restaurant that serves up all the favourites and more.
The outside of the restaurant is nothing to rave about. Upon entering however, you will be easily mesmerized by the smells floating from the kitchen. The inside is also very nice, with white linen tables and dark and rich maroon walls. Gold ornate dressings are interspersed throughout but nothing too overwhelming.
During my visit, I have vegetable samosas ($4.99) to start. Two large triangle pastries filled with a yummy potato filling.
For the main course, I have the Kofta Dilkhush ($11.99), which is paneer and ricotta cheese in a rich mild cashew curry. It is very rich and the cumin stands out smooth on palate.
I also have the Murgh Makhni ($13.99), which is their butter chicken cooked in a creamy tomato sauce. Definitely one of the best I have ever had...( besides my best pals' mom's of course! )
Fresh nan ($2.95) was ordered, as well as some Kesri Pillaw ($4.99), which is saffron flavoured rice to complete the meal.
