Profile Last Updated: October 15, 2008
Since 1991, Sukhi Biryani House has made its home in a teeny-tiny eatery on an itty-bitty street, a stark contrast from the hustle and bustle of nearby Yonge. Because of its slight stature and inconspicuous location, this restaurant may easily be missed; yet the loyal customers who have come to love the fare know its burgundy signage well. With a sandwich board out on the sidewalk and specials plastered on the front window, a step through the entrance reveals about a dozen tables within, with a service counter and large menu rigged behind it. What may at first look like a solely take-away restaurant, after a peek at Sukhi’s menu you’ll want to sit down to enjoy the extensive and delectable bill of fare.
Who Doesn’t Love a Lunch Special?
During the weekdays between the hours of 11 a.m. to 4 p.m., Sukhi Biryani House proffers very affordable daily specials for lunchtime. Spanning chili chicken, butter chicken, saag chicken, tikka chicken, and vindaloo chicken, Sukhi prepares these dishes with rice, dal soup, raita, salad, papadam, and your choice of two vegetables. Other midday meals include vegetable, beef, chicken, or lamb thali and biryani.
A Menu For All Tastes
Dinnertime is when Sukhi really shines, with a comprehensive menu for whatever your taste preferences. An array of poultry dishes are on board, like mango chicken (with chopped onions, mint, and black cumin), and chicken bhuna (cooked with tomatoes, onions, green pepper, ginger, and spices). Lamb choices span baholi handy (simmered with gravy and homemade spices), rogan josh, karahi, and, of course, the famous vindaloo. Featuring a slew of beef, seafood, and vegetarian dishes, there ought to be something for everyone. For dessert, try the gulam jamun (deep-fried milk balls dipped in sugar syrup) or ras malai (cheese soaked in sweetened milk, with pistachios and almonds, and sprinkled with rose water).
