Chef of India

Chef of India on Urbanspoon

Hello everyone!
The snow is finally starting to melt!
Canada won in both the Womens' and Mens' team for hockey for the Olympics. It had been an exciting week last week. I was pleased to see kids in Toronto were out yesterday playing Hockey on the streets.

I had recently went to Chef of India.

I have always noticed there was an Indian or South Asian Buffet at Yonge and Eglinton and never been to it. So I visited to see what it was like.
*Warning! This place is not wheel chair friendly! There is a flight of stairs to climb to the restaurant and their wash room well,  it is required to climb two flights of stairs. *
Dish #1 : Butter Chicken (of course!), Tandoori Chicken, Plain Naan bread, Mixed Greens and Curried Chickpeas. They were all delicious. Why I really came here was for the Butter Chicken. I have been begging Dan to take me but he didn't have the time because he had to study. 
Isn't food beautiful in the sunlight?
The red Tandoori Chicken was soooo good! 
I just finished doing my Tracy Anderson exercises and I am food blogging. This is not the best time for me to be writing about food. 
I love butter chicken! I would love to eat this on a monthly basis. 
I went to an Indian Restaurant a long time ago and tried this green goop that tasted so wonderful! And it turned out it was Saag Paneer! 
When I showed Danny this photo, he was like oh that?! That is Indian Cheese. LOL! It does have this creamy taste to it. 
Yummy Yummy! All of that Butter Chicken in my Tummy!

Plate #2!
There were two senior Caucasian ladies eating at the table next to me. They watch me eat plate after plate were astonished how much a small girl like me can eat. Of course, they indirectly said that. 
This time, I had some Saffron Rice. Dan was like, "Are you sure that is real Saffron Rice?" I was unsure what real saffron rice tasted like. 


This taste like a melted , watered down Vanilla Rice and Tapioca Pudding. I still enjoyed it. 
I would definitely return to this place for my Butter Chicken Fix. Hehehe! This Buffet had a fair amount of different types of food but I wish some of their food were more fresh. Not all of their food items tasted fresh. I would rate this place 3.0/5.0. Apparently, that day I had visited, it was short staffed. I clap for the female server who worked crazily trying to server everyone. I swear to God! If you had seen what I have seen, you would admire her. It was just her and this man refilling everyone's water and I saw the male server entering when I was about to leave. I would say the Naan and the Butter Chicken was the best they were always fresh! The buffet bill came to be for only $11-12 dollars? So for the quality of the food and the price and the service, it felt fair to me. I mean would you rather have a Mc Donald's Lunch that this? Oh hell no! So please consider this place before you spend $11-$12 in the Yonge and Eglinton Food Court. This is much better!
