If you live in or have visited Liberty Village lately you’ve noticed that there are a number of new restaurants and eateries popping up, offering a variety of cuisines to match your cravings. Whether it’s breakfast, lunch, or dinner, anyone with a busy schedule can appreciate great meal options that don’t require a lot of work on their part - just show up, pull up a chair, and enjoy! One of these new spots is Maurya East Indian Roti, boasting authentic East Indian cuisine.
Located at 150 East Liberty Street, Maurya opened it’s doors to Liberty Village residents earlier this summer, advertising both dine-in and take-out options. Maurya’s interior design is minimal and welcoming, with modern, tasteful pops of Indian decor. The owners have taken full advantage of the corner location and floor-to-ceiling windows by creating a bar of single seats looking out on the neighbourhood - no need to feel awkward if you're dining solo! The restaurant also offers enough seating for large groups - likely utilized by the lunch crowd from the surrounding businesses - as well as a generous patio!
Although new to Liberty Village, with over 25 years in the business and another location in Mimico, this well-loved eatery is no new kid on the Toronto block! Named after an ancient Indian dynasty of kings, Maurya is a pro when it comes to blending spices and creating delicious and flavourful dishes. We're very impressed with the number of options on the menu. Whether you prefer veggie, seafood, or meat, there’s is host of delicious choices for everyone. The options seem limitless!
We stopped by one afternoon to satisfy our craving for a tasty, mouth-watering roti. A roti is a popular part of Toronto’s food and beverage industry. In fact, Toronto is actually one of the best places in Canada for high quality roti. That alone gives us permission to be extremely picky, but Maurya’s roti did not disappoint! The butter chicken roti was satisfyingly flavourful and jam-packed with ingredients. If you prefer a vegetarian option, the chana (potato and chickpea) roti or sang paneer (pureed spinach, potato and paneer cheese) roti is equally satisfying. If you’re not a fan of wrapped meals, Maurya offers the curry dishes on a bed or rice or by itself instead. However served, it’s delicious and filling!
Maurya is a wonderful addition to Liberty Village, and with the autumn chill around the corner, this could not be a better time to start planning comfort food options. Wouldn’t you agree? With the variety of flavours to choose from and extremely cheerful and fast service, this is such a great spot for a quick bite or casual dinner with friends. We can’t wait to go back!
With other local favourites like Local Public Eatery and Balzac’s Coffee, could you imagine being able to stroll here for lunch or dinner from your chic and cozy loft just a block away? Check out the fab pad we sold nearby: Blissful Battery Park Condo in Liberty Village!
