Great South Indian Cuisine

The shehnai is also known as the Indian oboe. It is played in the temples and at all Indian weddings.

Shehnai Restaurant definitely has some great Indian food, comparable to Vancouver. It is also the first Indian restaurant I've found in Hamilton that serves chipatti and roti (Indian flatbread). It's not so busy at lunch time, but in the evenings especially Friday evenings it's quite busy.

Bring an empty stomach. You won't go unsatisfied. They've got plenty of vegetarian dishes to satisfy even the most discerning vegan. For those that like a bit of meat with their meal, they definitely serve that market, too. All in all a very good place to go, especially if your group is either vegetarian, or a mix of vegetarians and meat-eaters.
