Sudhanshu Kumar

Chef & Owner of Aanch

Sudhanshu Kumar, the man behind Aanch – Modernistic Indian Cuisine is quite a storyteller with each dish unfolding his journey of becoming a chef. With a few cooking tricks up his sleeve and a pocket full of dreams Sudhanshu journeyed to Canada where he studied Culinary Management in Niagara College. It was here he realized his true calling for showcasing Indian food with a modern approach.

Upon entering the kitchen, he relies solely on his emotions and intuitions to create dishes. In fact, he is perpetually seeking unique ingredients and grinding his own spices to create contemporary palates.

For Sudhanshu, his restaurant is a reminiscence of friends and family sharing stories and enjoying his cuisine. It is for this reason you will often notice a friendly smile approaching you to make sure you feel at home.

My wife & I chose Aanch by chance. We were in Toronto to celebrate our anniversary. Many restaurants were still closed. Luckily for us, Aanch was open.We had an excellent dining experience. Our server helped us choose items we thoroughly enjoyed. The dishes were served piping hot and prepared to perfection. The naan bread was superb.The servings were very generous and we took our leftovers with us for a very tasty lunch the next day.The owner/chef took a few moments to greet us and thank us for dining at his restaurant, a nice touch.There’s an extensive menu to explore. We agreed to leave room to try a dessert the next time we’re fortunate enough to dine at Aanch.The restaurant had proper distances between the tables and all staff were masked. The owner and staff are taking the threat of C19 seriously and protecting their patrons and themselves as much as possible.We had walked past Aanch and decided to turn around and go back. We made the right decision.

My family and I had the pleasure of celebrating my dad's birthday at Aanch last week. We were greeted by an amazing server named Sonam and she made sure our entire dining experience was comfortable. We ordered multiple appetizers and they were all amazing, we were blown away by the presentation, flavor combinations, creativity and personal touch Chef Sudanshu brought to the table. I would absolutely recommend this restaurant for anyone looking to have a high-end Indian dining experience.

Edit: not sure what happen to my previous review! It got deleted by accident! *Put this one on the list for great Indian food. The garlic naan was gigantic, the spinach paneer dish was so delicious, would definitely order again. There was a mismatch with pricing when I ordered online vs. When I checked out but the staff had clarified the issue. Anyways, would definitely be back to dine in some day.

Ordered garlic naan, laccha paratha, chicken lababdar and machar jhol (bengali boneless fish curry). The fish curry had great flavour. Chicken lababdar was also good.On the pricier side of restaurants, comes to 80 CAD for 2 curries and 3 rotis. No drinks.4 star, because food was good, but not worth the price.

The restaurant was unexpectedly busy however our server’s Ekta and Sonam made sure that we get the food piping hot. We ordered Samosa, Tandoori platter, Butter chicken and Breads. The Butter Chicken is authentic as we get in India unlike we get in other restaurants in Toronto selling sweet Butter chicken lol. This restaurant serves Indian food with Pride and authenticity. I loved small things how Sudhanshu (Chef and owner) helped the team and also asking us for feedback. Trust me all restaurants in Toronto serve bad Indian food and spoil the name. If you want to try real Indian food do visit this restaurant.I rate this 100 out of 5 stars haha.Cheers to the team and Serving Indian Food with authentic Indian flavours.Butter Chicken - The best in Canada

Delicious Indian food! I was shocked to see how big of a piece the garlic naan was when I received it. The chicken tikka masala and palak paneer was so flavourful, equal portions of meat/paneer with the sauce but price wise, it’s a little expensive (3 items costed me $51). Also, I would like to mention the chicken tikka masala is priced at $20.99 on Aanch’s website but they charged $21.99 when my husband ordered by phone and picked up in person.

My absolute favourite Indian restaurant in the city. They have the best naan in Toronto and I always go back for it. All of their curries actually taste different and how they should unlike a lot of other places where they look and taste the same. If you’re into desserts, would highly recommend trying different flavours of their kulfis; they are homemade and delicious!
