Those looking for refined fare paired with polished table service should check out this gastronomic temple that uses the freshest ingredients in everything from their achari aloo baingan to Patiala goat curry or king prawn-filled zinga jalfrazie. 

Brar's Grand Buffet

Feast on dal makhana curry and bhaji pav in this confectionary restaurant that's filled with homey décor, but leave room for the chilled rasmalai, a cottage cheese sponge cake that's soaked in cardamom-infused milk, or the gluten-free gajar ka halwa. Don't miss ordering a box of traditional besan or lush badam barfi for the road.

Anokhi Inspired Indian Dining

Using simple ingredients to create the diverse menu served in this sleek space, chef Sarwan Singh's modern Indian cuisine might start with a bowl of palak pudina chicken shorwa before volleying to the red-slicked Anokhi paneer Tikka or spicy pineapple cooked prawns in the samudari shollay, and close with gulab jamun cheesecake and carrot halwa cake.

Mirch Masala

For contemporary northern Indian cuisine with an Italian and French twist, head to this downtown Brampton restaurant for reimagined specialties including tandoori and Punjabi-style curries in share-friendly portions. Make sure to try the chef's version of burrata cheese that's sided by naan, biryani and butter chicken.
