Kennedy and Steeles area of Brampton houses an endless assortment of small shops across the plazas. If you happen to work in the deep industrial recesses of Bramption, you must have noticed Tandoori Tonite, a great restaurant that offers luscious North and South Indian food.
Amidst a vicinity that’s experiencing a restaurant boom, Tandoori Tonite’s owner Samina Javed stands out for its pillowy naans, perfect means to mop up butter chicken. Largely exposed kitchen and bare-bone walls, these restaurants in this areas defy the traditional norms of a standard feel that comes with a restaurant. There are no washrooms. But the aromas of freshly baked bread and garam masala lingering in the air will certainly pull you inside. If you find Butter Chicken, which happens to be there special expertise, a bit onotonous then a plain naan, dressed lightly with butter with a smear of crushed garlic, and “keema” style, stuffed with meat will surely get you drooling.
Born and raised in Pakistan, Javed wanted nothing more than being a chef. After moving to Canada in 2002, Javed and her kids first settled in Scarborough where Javed worked a number of restaurant jobs, before settling in Brampton a few years later. “I came to Canada for a better life but to also become a chef”, Javed says.
