we moved to Bloor and Bathurst and trying lots of different places.
We tried Rajput's Bistro east of Christie and despite wanting to like it a lot, it was not good at all. (Sauces were all very similar and too sweet and tomato-based, naan was the oddest texture, even the rice was sticking together, the shrimp dish had used obviously grocery store frozen shrimp).
The owner is so very kind and the place is cozy but the food far from acceptable, even if well priced.
There is a Banjara and Madras both west of Christie as well as another Indian restaurant adjacent to it.
Are either any good?
Fresh naan and fluffy flavourful rice is mandatory, otherwise I'd rather just make rajmah, mung bean dals and channa myself and my own average basmati rice.
Are either worth a stroll past Christie?
