Best Samosa and/or Indian Food in Scarborough? (Samosa King + pics)

BokChoi | Aug 22, 2008 10:56 PM

Looking to expand my breadth of knowledge when it comes to samosas and all things tasty related to Indian food.

Does anyone have any suggestions? I headed to Samosa King for the first time last weekend and was quite satisfied with my samplings there. The staff were friendly, courteous and kind. The customer behind me was kind enough to give me a short lesson on the offerings typical at Indian bakeries and sweet shops. The employee behind the counter prepared a ‘sample bag’ for me as well – with 3 items (the names of which have escaped me – please see the attached photos and help me put a name to the food item) for $1. I was very impressed with the service there and would return on that fact alone. The samosas themselves were just “okay” for me, as I have had fantastic ones that were homemade by a number of friends of mine, and at restaurants in Boston and London.

Samosa King Sampler:

People on this board have mentioned that their wrapper had changed. As I have only tried them now, I cannot attest to the fact that they have gotten significantly worse. But at 5 for $1, one can hardly find the heart to complain. You can see the quality of the wrapper in the photos before you head over to buy them for yourselves. See if they are to your liking.


I am, however, still on the prowl for the best samosa in the Scarborough area. Does anyone have any recommendations? I’ll even open that up to best Indian food in the Scarborough area if anyone has any tips. Please give me recs for cheap, mid-priced and high-end (if those exist in this neighbourhood).
