Amaya the Indian Room Gets a Mouth-Watering Revamp

Amaya the Indian Room

Amaya’s updated dining room is warm and inviting

When Amaya the Indian Room opened in 2007, it quickly became one of Toronto’s most talked-about dining rooms, drawing praise for its intimate ambience and contemporary take on Indian cuisine. In the intervening years, owner Hemant Bhagwani has expanded his brand to include a clutch of more casual “Bread Bar” restaurants, food court outlets and even a retail line of sauces. Now he’s turned his attention back to his flagship restaurant, giving it a fifth-anniversary makeover with details including a worn-wood feature wall. The food, of course, has also been updated; try the highlights—street-style offerings, seafood specialties and Amaya faves—as part of a tasting menu ($42, or $59 with wine pairings).  —Craig Moy
