We have been living in the Burnaby/New West area for 10 years now and have frequented many of the local Indian Restaurants. Agra Sweets is undoubtedly our favourite. I come from a south Asian family and in my opinion, Agra is the most authentic and flavourful when it comes to its delicious curries, and you get a good value for what you pay for; it?s cheaper than the competition but the quality and flavour is superior, in my opinion. We regularly order the Goat curry and the Daal turka, I highly recommend these. The texture is phenomenal and the flavours are very warm and comforting with the right amount of spice. The dishes aren?t super oily either. The goat meat is very tender and is seasoned perfectly. The curry is velvety and pairs well with the well cooked meat. The lentils in the Daal are also wonderfully seasoned, the onions add a crunchy texture that pairs well with the soft lentils and velvety curry. Each curry comes with free naan bread too! I also have to give some praise to the sweets, the gajrela (sweet carrot squares) are amazing, pillowy texture and a sweet, subtle taste. Can?t recommend this place enough!
Been buying samosas here very years, always warm and ready for order. Good price and comes with sauce. Spicy but not too much. Love this store and wouldn?t buy anywhere else
Got some samosa fresh. Delicious Got the lunch special with the goat curry and chole. The quantity was very less. 2 pieces and the rest bones. The naan was not completely cooked. So not really worth it. The curry was hot. So make sure you can ask for mild if you can't handle it.
Cheap and tasty Indian sweets. In fact I'm not sure what I should ordered, so I asked the gentleman to give me a variety of things to try. He must have thought that I was crazy because I was asking for things not too sweet at an Indian sweets shop! But he did give me items that were quite aromatic and tasty, all great suggestions! Yes these were on the sweeter side ? but they went very well with strong black tea! So I'll definitely go back there again!
Good variety of Indian desserts or sweets. We got the milk cake, Gulab jamun and kalakand. Milk cake and kalakand were perfect. Me and my wife both liked the food.
Inexpensive compared to other Indian restaurants in this area. Tried their butter chicken, Shahi paneer and lamb curry combos. Shahi paneer was nice so was butter chicken. Lamb curry tasted bland though. Staff and service were ok.
I am not a big fan of samosas as they tend to be greasy. When I had a potato samosa from Agra I wasn?t disappointed. Not greasy and great taste in the filling. Just enough spice to add a bit of kick to it. Best to eat them while they?re still hot. Someone brought a case of them to work and it was a big hit. Everyone loved them. A great choice for an appy idea!
I ordered mix parathas today and surprised to see that there are big lumps of flour on both parathas which cannot be eaten. I don't know who was cooking it. I hope the owner will take note of this and ensure that their cooks are more considerate in providing good quality food to their customers. Not happy with this.
One of the best reason to visit Burnaby is to experience Agra Sweets. We offer a great time for people everywhere and our appetizing chicken is the reason people keep coming back for more. If you'd like to ask us some questions or make a reservation call us at (604) 526-7879.
