We have always gone to Nilgiris for the vadas especially and food overall. Today their buffet ($19.99) was finally open so I wanted to try it. However my family was ordering 4 other dishes ($50) for themselves and wanted to take a bite of the...mirchi bhajji. My cousin had just about put the mirchi close to her mouth when one of the servers came and asked her not to because the buffet cannot be shared. While I understand that and respect the rule because people take advantage, it is also important to be civil and polite and A. Not get someone to bring the food out before taking that bite (culturally it is not polite) and B. She could have first asked if we had ordered other dishes instead of jumping at our throat to not allow anyone to take even a bite! It was humiliating and uncalled for. As much as I appreciate the food quality at Nilgiris, this kind of customer service is uncalled for and unnecessary. I don’t blame the server but the brand and the operations for training their staff to be inhuman. The first thing you should be taught in a service industry specially to do with food is to know HOW to be empathetic and serve your customer with respect. Please don’t undermine our intelligence. We too spend our hard earned money to come eat at your restaurant. #nomorenilgiris #exnilgiriscustomerMore

Came here for brunch with family. Food is good, service is okay. Staff are friendly when helping, but do have to wait to get served. Food is tasty and quality is good, nice spot in scarborough to try.

Its throwing away money if you go to this place. The Masala Dosa and the Mysore Masala dosa that we ordered were both soggy. Being from South India I am used to eating crispy dosas. When I relayed my disappointment to the server they said...I should expect only the plain dosa to be crispy- Really? that's the first time I am hearing this explanation. The sambar that was initially served was cold so we had them bring us fresh hot sambar. The Medu Vadas are so thick that the batter is uncooked in the center. Will never go back to this place again. I have eaten here in the past few years back and the standard has substantially deteriorated.More

The food was delightful and the price was very very reasonable. The waitress was super accommodating to small tweaks and very pleasant. The masala dosa was amazing. The only reason for not giving it a higher rating was the portion of the Sambar (might be...a tad small). The chutneys were delicious. The Mango shake was really good but sadly the portion was too small for the price ... not worth it (looked like a mini kids drink).More

After waiting for half an hour, today I asked up to four waiters to bring us food. Unfortunately, the last waiter to arrive was disrespectful to me and told me that he takes a lot of orders before asking me for our order once more,...which they didn't serve. He then said (rudely) that it would take an additional 10 minutes to get that. Going to a restaurant as a patron is about getting wonderful food and service. We expressed our concerns to the manager in the hopes that they would take appropriate actioMore

We engaged them in a recent party for catering. The food preparation was to our liking. Freshly prepared and Tasty. All the guests were full of praise for the uniqueness of the south Indian variety. To them it was novel food, never tasted one like...it before. Everyone uniformly praised the food which made the party that much more enjoyable. As one would appreciate - the food is one of the main aspects of a successful gathering. In that respect Nilgiris played an important role. Thanks to Mr.Ivan Joseph for taking special care and keeping it ready to be delivered to us on time - just as promised. About price: For the same menu items we compared two other south Indian restaurants. They were more expensive than Nilgiris. A lot more. So, we are glad we chose this place. They did not disappoint. All in all, it is a great value.More

The curries and other food served was below standard. People serving are very un professional and lack of communication and knowledge. Very lethargic serving and stale food. This location should be closed down to save good reputation of the Markham location,which is best

I made an online order for the food to be picked up by 12:15 at the Scarborough location. My husband went there but the food was not ready. They told him to wait 10 min. After 10 min, the food was not ready. He had...an appointment and had to leave after 12:30 pm without the food. I tried to call them to say, he will come back after 1:45, and no one is answering the phone. I already paid for the food. I didn't want to pick up cold food.More
