What a year this has been already for Mississauga’s food scene. We’ve seen over a dozen new restaurants and eateries open their doors for business, from The Halal Guys to Nomad’s, Lazeez Shawarma to Eva’s Original Chimney’s. And then there’s some great redemption stories like Streetsville’s On-Z-Rocks, which just re-opened, following a three year closure due to fire.

Well, we’ve now seen another redemption story, as one of Mississauga’s most popular Indian restaurants has just re-opened! Godavari has just returned to our fine city, and can now be found at 3215 Derry Road East.

Godavari once operated at the famed Cherry Hill House, a location that is said to be haunted, but only lasted a year at the spooky site. Despite only being there for a year, Godavari was immensely popular; managing to score 4.0 stars on Google, based on almost 300 reviews! The new location is a beautiful space, full of natural lighting, and with no neighbours nearby.

While the location may have changed, the ideology and mantra of Godavari remains the same. The extensive menu of fresh, authentic Indian food includes dishes like Masala Vada, Aloo Bonda, Butter Masala Dosa, Spring Uthappam, Poori with Vegetable Curry, and the truly gigantic Family Dosa. The prices at Godavari are entirely reasonable, with the majority of dishes coming in under $20.

Godavari may not have lasted very long at the mystical Cherry Hill House, but the traditional Indian restaurant is back for seconds. The new location is well worth a visit, at 3215 Derry Road East.
