Amaya the Indian Room to close later this month

Amaya the Indian Room, the eight year old restaurant on Bayview Avenue, will close its doors for good after participating in Summerlicious one last time this July. Owner Hemant Bhagwani announced that July 26th would be the last day.

The Amaya Express at 1574 Bayview and the various food court stalls that bear the Amaya name will continue on - although the outposts on Leslieville and Ossington shuttered earlier this year.

This followed other failed locations on Davenport as well as Yonge and Lawrence. Amaya has also been a repeat offender of the city's DineSafe restaurants inspection program which we report on this site on Tuesdays.

But all is not lost at 1701 Bayview Avenue. While Bhagwani remains tight-lipped, he promises something exciting at the location that started what has become a mini-empire of restaurants.
