Restaurant Review - The Host

We've been to The Host's Mississauga location several times (33 City Center Dr., at the corner of Robert Speck Parkway, just west of Hurontario, by Square One), there are two others, one in Yorkville and one in Richmond Hill, and enjoyed their all-you-can-eat buffet (only at lunch Thursday to Sunday - about $15 per person on the weekend); we'll likely go back again. You can also eat a la carte at other times, prices are fairly reasonable ($9-15 per dish). The buffet has a number of interesting South Indian and Indian dishes, including meat and vegetarian ones, with appetizers, soups and salads (pretty typical of most buffets). Some of our favourites are the Murgh Makhni, or Butter Chicken (an award winning dish); Rara Goat, with a brown curry of tomatoes and onions (ok, I like that one); Fish Amritsari, Punjabi white pasa fish marinated in spices and deep fried in gram flour batter (excellent!); Panir Makhni, homemade cottage cheese cooked in buttery tomato sauce; Gulab Jamun, a dessert made from milk solids and flour in a syrup flavoured with cardamon and rosewater (wonderful! I could eat half a dozen of these, and have!); their Nan is also tasty.
