About Our Partners
I hosted a private event in their restaurant which had many influential name in the city. The hospitality provided by the entire team of Dhruvees and the food served was just amazing! Every single guest of mine was just amazed and could not stop munching...on the Indian and Sri Lankan delicacies which were served. The best part , the entire team went over and above and printed the menu with the details to nicely put beside the plates for every individual so that they can understand the food and mention of any allergies prior serving. I strongly recommend to our community folks to visit Dhruvees and enjoy their food or consider them for your private events. More
Amazing Indian restaurant with variety of authentic indian food .Loved the ambiance and ofcourse the service. I wish i can give more than 5 ⭐️ stars
Wow wow wow. I can’t begin to describe the amazing smells and flavors of the food here. From the Indonesian rendang, to the giant Tandoori Prawns and the Spicy Chicken Tikka not to mention the soothing refreshing taste of a mango lassi or two. It...is a restaurant for everyone’s tastebuds, whether you love Sri Lankan Pepper Crab or Jaffna Chicken Curry, it’s all here my friends. Did I mention the huge patio for people watching and high tea in the afternoons. And totally family friendly so no excuses come to the premier south Asian restaurant and bring your family and friends. More
If you're looking for the North Star in new cuisine in Ottawa, you have to visit Dhruvees on Beechwood. Now that we are (almost) back to normal, we have chosen Dhruvees as our Team lunch meeting spot. Food is beautiful to the eyes, the nose...and... the taste! No matter what you choose on the menu (even the Tiger Beer!) you will discover flavor and... the need to come back! A great addition to the restaurant offer in Ottawa! Looking forward to our next visit! More
I organized a surprise birthday party (group of 20+ people) for my mom at Dhruvees on their lovely patio. The service was exceptional. Nicole was patient and knowledgeable, and answered all my questions and provided everything I asked for. The food well presented, super delicious,...and came in generous quantity. The owner kindly came out to speak to us several times, and the whole waiting team was very friendly, accommodating, and paid attention to details which was greatly appreciated. It was the first time for the group and I to try this place, and everyone was happy, with some of them already planning for their second visit. I highly recommend this restaurant! More
Amazing ambiance, great food, brilliant service, extremely friendly staff, nice place for a hangout.
Dhruvees stands out among Ottawa restaurants offering South Asian cuisine because it does not focus on just one country but offers you the cuisines of three countries - India, Sri Lanka and Indonesia. As well, the menu items have carefully selected ingredients that set them apart from other restaurants, such as the special long grain Basmati rice in the biryanis. Each country uses different spices and seasonings which create unique and very flavorful food. The best way to enjoy this is to go with four or more people and share a number of dishes in order to sample and contrast the differences. We especially enjoyed an Indonesian specialty, the lamb rendang. Also very good was the chicken tikka. Each dish is accompanied by sauces and condiments which compliment the particular item. To finish off our meal we shared a bowl of wonderful carrot halwa. The owner, Donald Wingell, was on the floor, answered all of our questions and was very helpful with suggestions. The restaurant space has been re-done in a modern look with hints of South Asia. We thoroughly enjoyed our evening there.
Best Indian Restaurant in Ottawa. If you’re looking for authentic Indian flavors with great ambiance and friendly staff, this is the place. The owner himself takes great pride in serving you and taking his valuable time to offer the right choices you and your family would enjoy eating. They also offered us the lemonade and ice tea which were not even listed on their menu items. They go above and beyond to cook something special for your family if you plan your trip well in advance, they will make sure to make your day.
With choice of flavorful Indian, Sri Lankan, Malaysian and Indonesian Cuisines, Dhruvees will keep you coming back for more. You know the food is amazing when you are stuffed and you crave more of the Lamb cutlets on your way home. These are not on the menu so make sure you remember to ask for it. All the items we tried were beautifully spiced to perfection. Our son who is picky eater ate the samosas, lamb cutlets, chicken biriyani and hoppers. The owner Donald and his staff provide an amazing personal touch with their interactions. This is my new favorite restaurant for Sri Lankan food. I can't wait to check out their Sunday brunch with some great Sri Lankan options made by Sri Lankan executive chef. You have to check this place out if you are in Ottawa.
Sunday brunch menu, many options. Awesome.. best pakoras (onion + potato) I've had in and Ottawa restaurant in 40 years. Dosa (crispy) was authentic, great chutneys too. Also had the goat curry, which was delicious - good sized portion, though only 2 chappattis (rotis) came with it (if rice is chosen instead it seems to be a good amount), Highly recommend, would go there again.
We went for my fiancé’s graduation celebration there. I must say that the beautifully designed restaurant matches up to the hype this place has garnered in the past few months! The staff is helpful, especially the owner who aims to please you with his Jazz music collection, great food recommendations and a delightful conversation! The food is divine and I definitely recommend the Jaffna Curry, Roasted Pan and the Lamb!!
Fantastic food, service and atmosphere. We had two mains, drinks, tea and dessert and loved every element!
Had a chance to dine in here couple of days ago . The dine in experience is simply awesome. After covid I know many restaurants offer only plastic plates or to go containers for dine in & here i saw everything from plates, cutlery to...plating, everything is just amazing. Enjoyed the ambiance & the customer service is outstanding. I ordered veg combo & the veg stew was flavourful😋 I wish them more and more success from bottom of my heart and keep up the good work Mr. Donald More
