A top chef had told us in the past which restaurants he thought served the best Indian food in Toronto. But this time, we wanted Toronto locals to have a say.

More specifically, we wanted to know which spots in the 6ix were said by laypeople to serve some of the best butter chicken in town. So Narcity asked their readers on Instagram to tell us where we think they would best satiate our taste buds.
