This is a "Hole in the Wall" restaurant in Yorkville. (Reservation recommended). The service is friendly and quick. The food is excellent, and just the right amount and the price is very reasonable. We really enjoyed this and are happy to recommend.

We went as a group and they failed to provide me with the non spicy dish I requested. They refused to take the dish back and provide a new one. I provided cash for payment of the meal and the server did not return the requested change despite three attempts. Apparently, this is a common issue according to my fellow... More

I'm a regular at this restaurant even though I live far, it's worth the trip downtown. Food is fantastic, I've tried every vegetarian and seafood dish on the menu, you simply cannot go wrong. Staff are all very attentive and friendly. It's a low key place, despite Yorkville address, bathroom could use some improvements.

We came here to scope out the place in advance of a conference this June. A total surprise to us was that this small kind of noisy place but in a good happy way had such nice staff and the food was amazing. The best Indian food we've ever had.

My friend and I went here last weekend for dinner. Upon entering we were asked whether we had a reservation to which we said no. We were given the hairy eyeball for not having a reservation which made no sense because the place was not half full, nor did it get more than half full during our time there. The... More

My husband and I came to Utsav on Sunday night without a reservation. Nonetheless, we were greeted and seated promptly. The place smelled heavenly, and we soon found that the food tasted just as good. We started with aloo paratha, nan stuffed with spicy potatoes. It was fresh and spicy and we both loved it. Then we had lamb vindaloo,... More

Nice food and good place. Reserving the table is necessary on busy weekdays. A suggestion is that it needs more options for vegetarians!

Cozy place, nice friendly staff who were attentive and wanted to please. The food was great but some diners who are not used to having heat in their food may not enjoy it. I ordered the lentil soup, lamb and nan! And I thought the food was delightful. The lamb was spicy just the way I like it.

Staying in Midtown

Neighbourhood Profile
Midtown
Midtown is a dynamic part of Toronto with some of its most stylish high-rise residences and heritage buildings. The area sees busy shoppers with bag-laden arms balancing lattes in paper cups as they travel from one luxury brand to the next, taking advantage of the proximity of high-end shops. The reflecting pools, jogging trails, and nature treks of the Rosehill Revision are always a hub of outdoor activity, and after a workout from either running or splurging, many take advantage of the spas and massage parlors Midtown has to offer. Away from the bakeries, boutiques, and glamorous old theaters of the district's center, locals use the weekend to embrace the more suburban feel of Midtown's parks, tennis courts, outdoor markets, and the manicured grounds of Casa Loma, while families indulge the area's state-of-the-art playground and learning facilities. Of course, no high-brow district is complete without a healthy counter-culture: Midtown boasts some of the wildest street art and full-wall graffiti of any neighborhood in Toronto.
