Kothur Indian Cuisine has been serving authentic Indian cuisine in the heart of downtown Toronto for over a decade. This restaurant offers a relaxing space to enjoy their range of Indian curries, biryani dishes and tandoori specialties that include lunch specials. The menu includes a variety of vegan and vegetarian options as well as a takeaway section for those who just want a curry-to-go.
They offer a casual dining environment with seating at the bar and in booths for two, four or more people. The restaurant has a unique atmosphere with one side of the wall being exposed brick, while the other uses a wooden finish with traditional Indian artworks adorning it. There is plenty of seating available including booths and regular tables which is ideal for 2-4 people.
The menu here features a variety of Indian dishes. Some of their most popular dishes include butter chicken, mutter paneer and malai kofta. They also offer a lunch specials menu which is full meals with your choice of entree.
A classic starter here is the vegetable pakoras ($5.50). These are deep-fried vegetables in a chickpea batter served with chutney dipping sauce. The pakoras are crisp on the outside but still juicy inside – perfect for whetting your appetite.
For the entree, you can never go wrong with the butter chicken ($15.99). This is a dish in which chicken breast is cooked in a clay pot with onion and creamy tomato sauce. It includes green peas, cashew nuts and is garnished with coriander to add that extra flavour. Best of all, you can get it with a side of either rice or naan, both of which are made in-house.
Another classic is the curry chicken with rice or flatbread ($15.99). This dish includes boneless chicken cooked with ginger, garlic and a delicious Indian curry sauce. Accompanied by a side of basmati rice or naan bread, this is the perfect meal to warm you up on a cold winter night!
For vegetarians, you can’t miss the chana masala ($11.99). This dish includes dry-cooked chickpeas with a smooth curry sauce. The masala provides the perfect amount of spice to the dish, while still allowing for all of the natural flavours of the vegetables to shine through.
Kothur Indian Cuisine offers a casual, comfortable environment – perfect for unwinding after work or hanging out with friends. Their extensive menu features Indian specialties, from classic curries to vegetarian dishes and more. If you’re in the mood for a curry-to-go, take advantage of their takeaway section!
