Profile Last Updated: October 23, 2008
A spot frequented by families and casual diners alike, Bar-Be-Que Hut spices up your spread with live tabla music every Friday night and a street-side patio (smoking allowed) for those sultry summer nights. If you’re craving a quieter evening with the same spicy kick, you can also do delivery and take-out. This eatery is a savoury addition to the city’s multicultural landscape.
Not Just Curry
Make no mistake; though curry is often thought of as the most distinctively Indian spice, there are many other deep-spice aromas offered up here to tickle your taste buds and broaden your flavour horizons, including mixtures of coriander, fennel, cardamom, saffron and ginger. Alongside your usual Indian fare, from basmati rice to vindaloo, Bar-Be-Que Hut house favourites include the lamb bara kabab and the chicken bara kabab, as well as vegetable and chickpea fritters called pakoras. Many vegetarian items are also available, for those so inclined. Dishes range from moderately mild to scorching hot and are often garnished with smatterings of grounds nuts, creams and other spices, so diners should be specific about their preferences when ordering. With so much to choose from, the reasonably priced weekend buffet is a good bet, at least for your first time out, in order to receive an adequate array of the fusion that is Bar-Be-Que Hut.
Reservations: a must on Friday nights
