Brar’s Grand-Advance has been in business since 1995. The restaurant came to be in place of the Brar’s sweets shop in Little India in Toronto. They serve pure vegetarian dishes, with a great emphasis on Indian sweets and desserts. The restaurant is very large, and it is divided into two sections. There is the buffet section, where all the daily selections are displayed, and you can select your meal per your liking.
The restaurant section features tables with grey tablecloths, nice wooden chairs and a lot of modern décors. There are large glass partitions, modern chandeliers, clean white walls, and nice tiled floors. The bar and buffet tops are made of marble with nice glass displays for the food, as well as metal stands for the various serving dishes, with separate naan and dosa stand.
The menu served here is pure vegetarian and a reflection of the traditional Punjab cuisine. There are samosa dishes, dosa, naan, bhel puri, pakora, channa bhatura, curry, aloo gobhi and more. The Brar’s long tradition of making sweets can be seen in the large selection of desserts like the ras malai, gulab jamun, and halwa.
The restaurant serves a daily menu for lunch which costs CAD$15 from Monday to Friday, and CAD$19 of the weekend, and a regular dinner menu for CAD$19 on weeknights and CAD$21 on weekends. The Brar’s is a very popular place to eat, especially with the growing number of vegetarian people in the GTA, so it is smart to make a reservation if you want to eat here, or you can order takeout via the Zomato app.
