Best Indian Food Ever!

I ate here last night and was absolutely delighted with the food. My husband and I ordered the butter chicken and veggie patty appetizer. Staff was lovely, atmosphere of the restaurant was trendy and the music was a great upbeat modern fusion. The presentation and freshness of the food was amazing. The chicken was perfectly cooked and the sauce was a perfect blend of Indian spices. Portions are not huge but the quality is there. The food reminded me of Vij's restaurant in Vancouver. Try the Alley Cat beer (blueberry or apricot). I'm not a beer drinker but I loved the superior brew of this ale. I live out of town but I'm coming in early next visit to Calgary just to eat here again. I'll be dreaming of this meal for a long time.....

Best sushi in Edmonton

I ate at Tokyo noodle shop on the weekend and had a great bento box. Their tuna is pretty good and the service was great. We had a nice outdoor seat and enjoyed the sun. 35 dollars for our lunch.

Edmonton: Best Indian Buffet

Khazana was incredible. We shared a half order of the mixed tandori with a small bowl of butter chicken sauce. Breads are great.

Best Pizza in Edmonton?

Thank you Chowhounds for the Famoso suggestion. We ate there on the weekend and loved it. Prosecco in little bottles! The sauce was incredible. We had the margarita and the Vesuvio. Bueno!!!

Okanagan/Penticton/Naramata vacation report

PERFECT! We're going for Ironman this year for a week and I needed a list of good places to eat. This is exactly what I needed.

Fort McMurray

I ate at Earl's last week and although the meal was very high in calories and fat, the food was really good. I was very surprised, as disappointment usually reigns for me in this town. Also, Fuji Japanese on Franklin is the only place in town I go to on a regular basis.

Fall Italy Trip Planning Questions

Mrs. Richo, I think we were seperated at birth. I too am an ubra-planner and I too am going to Italy for the first time with my husband in the fall. I think I'm just going to hijack your postings here and follow your plan! You saved me so much time.... Thanks!
