This place is frankly excellent, from service to quality of food to ambience.The food is always delicious and decently priced for the location of the restaurant.The ambience makes for a nice, relaxing quiet dining experience with soft Indian music playing. The food has always arrived in a timely fashioned, and has always been delicious.
If you like the ambiance of a nice setting this is pretty decent.If you're looking for just taste you won't necessarily be disappointed but Scarborough or Markham has decent tasting food out there for much cheaper.
Pros: As someone who doesn't eat Indian food often, I thought the food tasted great. It's not too spicy so you can actually taste the flavours underneath. The fish curry was my favourite. The staff seem friendly and patient.Cons: It took forever to get our food (~1 hour), and our server didn't come around often enough (we sat in the patio). A few times through the meal we had to go inside to find a server ourselves.Probably would just order takeout from here next time.
I have been to the other location in Mississauga a few times, and always enjoyed dining there. This location (even though smaller) was no different, and actually service was better here (which is not quite there in the Missiausaga location, though still satisfactory). The food is amazing, with decent quantity per serving. Everything we ordered was great; this was probably first time eating Indian Cuisine for some people in the group, but everyone loved the food. Location is great and ambiance is very cozy. One thing that I would advice the management would be, to renovate/ clean up the approach to washrooms (looked very run down), but washrooms were clean, so no issues there. We were a big group, stayed there for a good amount of time, and were not rushed to order or to pay, which was appreciated. However, this was on a Wednesday, so need to go back during a busy time around weekends to see if the experience remains the same. Will definitely be going back!
This has been my second visit to The Host. The first one being in Markham. The quality of food and service is great. I would recommend place for Indian fine dine. Their prices are reasonable for the quality. Thank you for hosting us well The Host.
