The Spice of Life: Ottawa’s East India Company


The East India Company has gained a loyal following in Ottawa on the strength of their authentic Indian dishes

What began as a small two-person operation has grown into a wildly successful restaurant business for Kamal Mehra and his wife Sudha in Ottawa. The couple opened The East India Company over 30 years ago in Winnipeg, and blessed Ottawa with their presence when they opened a second location in the capital. On the strength of Sudha’s authentic recipes, this buffet-style restaurant has gained a loyal following in the city. Expect everything from paneer to channa masala and, of course, naan, which is made right in front of you. And, if you like what you taste, you can buy their own homemade spice blends to try Sudha’s recipes that are posted on their website. — Karen Ladouceur
