Gandhi Indian Cuisine announces permanent closure

After 25 successful years on Queen Street West, Gandhi Indian Cuisine, known for its famous butter chicken roti, has announced it will be closing permanently at the end of the month.

“The past few months have been very trying for our family business,” says a note from the owners posted at the roti shop’s door. “[Due] to the financial uncertainty of COVID-19, we felt that it was best to close our doors permanently.” 

The closure marks another loss for Toronto, where coronavirus shutdowns have been blamed for the permanent closure of several restaurants, so far. As the spot where the original butter chicken roti is believed to have been invented, the news hits particularly hard for Toronto roti fans. The brainchild of Gandhi owner Avtar Singh, who first combined the popular curry with an east Indian-style roti shell, Gandhi’s rotis are renowned throughout the city. 

Scheduled to close on June 30, there are still a couple of weeks to say goodbye with one last taste. Fans can also continue to support Mother India, in Parkdale, run by the same owners as Gandhi Indian Cuisine. A new Indian roti restaurant, under new management, is scheduled to open in Gandhi’s place later this summer.
