Open until 9 pm on Fridays and Saturdays, Barrie Delight is known for its Samosas and Butter Chicken. This restaurant is located in a plaza about a 10-minute drive north of the city, so there’s lots of parking available.
20 Bell Farm Rd, Barrie
Who doesn’t like pizza and Indian food late at night? TJs Pizza & Curry in a Hurry is located in the north end of Barrie in a plaza. Customers to TJs recommend the Saag paneer and Butter Chicken as well as the Caribbean Curry and Roti. Curry in a Hurry also offers lots of vegan options.
Unfortunately, they’re only open from the afternoon until 7:30 pm, so they are more of a dinner spot than late-night eats.

311 Blake St, Barrie
While not open quite as late as DesiLicious, Indian Curry is open until 11 pm on Fridays and Saturdays, 10 pm on Sundays and 9 pm the rest of the week, except Tuesdays when they’re closed, and you’ll have to venture elsewhere for your fix.

Customers recommend Tandoori for the great prices, good portions and amazing flavours. The Malai Kofta, Chaat Papri and Vegetable Korma are recommended.
One customer says to get the take-out because the portions are worth its price, with just the right amount of spice and chutney, and there’s always fresh pomegranate on top.
7 Anne St., Unit 7, Barrie
Located off the 400 exit near Dunlop and Anne St., Royal Paan is open late until 2 am on Friday until Sunday and midnight the rest of the week.
According to their website, the Royal Paan chain was established back in 2001 because the founder wasn’t able to find the authentic Indian version of Paan in Canada and serves “the only source of true, authentic Paan, Falooda” in Canada as well as milkshakes and street food delicacies from Mumbai.
