About Ancila's Indian Cuisine:
Ancila’s Indian Cuisine is all about home cooked food that will teleport you to India the second you take that first bite. Located in a quiet neighbourhood in Mississauga’s strip mall, it has only one employee that cooks and serves all the food and runs the whole restaurant on her own. You might’ve guessed it, it’s the owner – Ancila. She picks and cooks everything on the menu every day to order, and there is rarely someone that doesn’t like her home-style Indian food.
Every spice and herb is carefully picked to create the perfect combination of flavours anyone would love to eat time and time again. From spice-filled Mughlai, tandooris to meat samosa, pakoras, and Koli wadas, the menu is filled with authentic Indian specialities. You can order different sides with your entrees or mains, and there is also a limited selection of drinks and desserts.
Although the restaurant has around 50 seating available, most prefer to order takeout, which makes it seem empty frequently. But, for those who stay to dine-in, Ancila’s company always brings a pleasant and homey feeling many visitors love about this place. Amongst the many positive reviews, there are only a few ones that have some complaints, and those are for a slow service that happens during busy hours because there is only one employee.

There are only a small group of people who know that cooking authentic Indian food takes time and love put into it, and one of those people is Ancila, the owner of this restaurant. With a strong desire to bring the best combination of spices and flavours, Ancila prepares everything to order so that diners can receive only fresh, homemade food reminiscent of India. Because everything is prepared to order, it takes more time to cook it, so it’s better to make a reservation first if you are planning on dropping by.
Many diners that choose to dine in can experience the food along with Ancila’s company and listen to her stories and experiences, something they enjoy thoroughly. Her company, the excellent food quality, and sizeable portions are what continues bringing old customers back to the restaurant and welcome new ones.
As part of Mississauga’s international cuisine, Ancila’s Indian Cuisine brings something different and authentic to the market. Her dedication and hard work show not only through her food but also through the loyal customers that consistently praise the food. If it continues operating as it is now, it will surely become a staple restaurant in Mississauga.
