We were really pleased to catch the grand opening of The Copper Chimney.
2050 Avenue Road.
Service was very gracious, the ambiance was simple yet warm and the food was very good, portions larger than Amaya and way more tasty than both the other south Asian restaurants around Yonge/Ave & Lawrence (IMO).
Naan was spectacular. The management told us their tandoor chef came from Cuisine of India (where I had in the past really enjoyed the naan as well).
The asked for a lot of feedback on the dishes such as spicing and heat levels of chilies.
Amritsari Fish appetizer (crispy fish
)Butter chicken (they customized the spice level for my kids)
Daal Bukhara (black lentils simmered for 8 hours)
Plain yogurt instead of raita
Naan and Rice
The desserts were amazing, pistachio crunchy textured frozen creamy dish (Kulfi?) and Galub-Jamun.
The owner generously didn't charge for the desserts. They served our girls chocolate and vanilla ice cream free of charge as well.
My girls loved it, the restaurant owner made sure to check the butter chicken was mild enough for them and my naan critic 8 year old declared it the best naan ever (she is hard to impress given her love of naan)
I would definately encourage people to visit. The people are so very kind there.
I can't wait to try more fish and vegetarian dishes there.
Notare Bene: %20 off dine-in Tues-Thursday until Dec. 31, 2010., %10 off takeout. (I took their menu on the way out)
We ate at the Copper Chimney on Avenue Rd. on Tuesday night., and what a nice surprise I must say the %20 off was.
