Having just returned from Paris, I finally got around to trying Biryani House after reading the comments on this board. I was very impressed. The presentations are thoughtful and fairly artistic - not at all what one expects in a typical Toronto Indian restaurant. As well, the use of spices and chilies is very bold. The signature shrimp dish was excellent, but made me sweat. The chili chicken was also very good. My favourite dish of the evening was the pakoras, served in a papadum basket. A great looking and superb tasting dish. Since we live so close by, we will definitely be returning to this place to work our way slowly through the menu!
