Mahar Restaurant (Indian) on Gerrard

I rarely see any mention of this restaurant here. It underwent a renovation about a year ago, and now looks much better than in it's previous incarnation.

After the reno, my wife and I ate there a few times but found the food to be too hot and not well prepared and so we decided to take a break from it.

Last week, I was in the area at lunch and thought I'd try it out again. I was pleased to find that the food is now very good. It's much milder and just about perfect. There are many vegetarian dishes, plus tandoori and butter chicken, and a goat curry.

The buffet is $9.95 at luch and $12.99 at dinner. It appears that the selection is pretty much the same for both. Desserts are also included. Beer is $3.50 for domestic and $4.49 for imported (Kingfisher, Cheetah, Heineken etc)

I told one of the owners that the food is much better than when I ate there last year, and he said that they have a new cook and said the previous one didn't cook well and the food was too hot for him also.

It's definitely worth trying if you are looking for an Indian buffet.

Here is a link with the address:

P.S. the washrooms are clean also! :-)
