New Indian restaurant in northern Ontario aims to delight taste buds


Timmins –

Darshankumar Chaudhari lived in a few places before settling in Timmins. Originally from western India, he has also lived in the United States, southern Ontario and, most recently, Saskatchewan.

Chaudhari wanted to open his own restaurant, offering Indian cuisine, but he wanted to find the perfect place. He said the site of the old Holy Cow restaurant was a good fit for him.

It takes a lot of courage to make a dream so far from home come true, and Chaudhari credits his wife for it.

“We’re here because of her hard work, so yeah, she’s my courage, actually,” he said.

International students

The Indian population is increasing in Timmins mainly due to the high number of international students at Northern College.

The CEO of the Downtown Timmins BIA said the city strives to serve everyone.

“It’s so important, we all know, to have a little corner of home no matter how far away you live,” said Cindy Campbell.

Chaudhari said he was happy to share Indian food with the whole community.

“I was looking at the demographics of Timmins and the services they offer here, that was the main point because I don’t believe this restaurant is just for students and international customers, it’s for everyone,” did he declare.

One of the biggest challenges Chaudhari has handled is finding employees. He said he had one chef so far, but needed another so he could be open longer.

Mango Delight is the only Indian restaurant of its kind in Timmins. Chaudhari named it after his favorite Indian dessert, which is also on the menu.
