Bringing You The Best Biryani in Thornhill & Ajax.​

Chi si volta, e chi si gira, sempre a casa va finire. No matter where you go or turn, you’ll always end up at home.

A sentiment our nearly 1 million-strong Indian contingent in Ontario knows all too well. More so, when the matters turn to food. The mind, ever so wistful for the delicacies of the land.


And if you were to nominate a dish that would appease that desi taste bud, spur your pulse and welcome you with open arms, it is the biryani.

For the residents of Thornhill and Ajax, courtesy Chowrasta, this evergreen Indian classic is now just a few blocks away!


At Chowrasta, we have devoted ourselves to bringing forth authentic Indian delicacies which have yet to shine in the mainstream limelight.

With a typical Deccan kick, our biryani, containing local and hyperlocal variations of the region, will spoil you for choice when it comes to this melting pot of flavours.


From the vintage Dum Goat biryani to the delightfully creamy Chicken Shahi biryani. Ghee roast to the chef special Nuzvid. We’ve got all the biryanis you’ll ever need. 


With tender meat and seafood procured halal style, we at Chowrasta infuse our biryani with the zest of Hyderabad, the city of Nizams.

Our biryanis are meticulously prepared in the ‘Kutchi’ biryanis style, unique to the city of Hyderabad, where raw meat and rice are cooked together in an earthen pot or ‘handi’ with a sizzling blend of spices.

What’s more, Ontario and our biryani share a marked similarity. Just as the Hyderabadi society is a confluence of myriad cultures, the biryani is famous for imbibing many food ingredients (as our menu so proves!). And so has been Ontario, embracing everyone with genuine warmth.

So if you’re a pukka desi at heart, you’ll know of a nostalgic slice of biryani haven to revisit. If you happen to be a true-blood Canadian tucking into this authentic gem from India, know you’ll be part of a biryani brotherhood for life!
