Amazing food!

A group of friends and myself just went to Thandi's for the first time and were very impressed! Food was amazing and the atmosphere was beautiful and inviting. What a hidden gem in this city.

Great food and atmosphere, have never had a bad meal here. Great daily lunch specials - quality and value. Can't beat Thandi's. The Butter Chicken on Friday's lunch menu is the best.

This restaurant has a lovely atmosphere. There are cozy areas by the fireplace or large open areas. The food is always delicious.

Whenever I am in Saint John, friday at lunch is always booked off for Butter Chicken fridays at Thandi's. Hands down the best butter chicken. Chicken Pad thai, naan nachos, club on naan, soups.... everything on the menu is top notch. Love the atmosphere in a beautiful, lavishly furnished, brick uptown building. The staff is friendly and professional. Eat here... More

We've been waiting to come here since moving to NB five years ago. It was worth the wait. Great Indian and international food, and friendly service in a beautiful building. Can't wait to go again. Tip of the day, either don't have starters (which are delicious), or get one main course between two, as the portions are huge. However, no... More

The food here was amazing and service second to none. I never tip over 15 % but I tipped 20 % on the total which was a $ 26 tip for two of us. That's saying something for us. At $ 155 total, this was the second highest dinner we have had in our travels around the world and worth... More

This is a great place for any occasion or just looking for a chill out spot for lunch. The food is amazing and the staff are great. The kitchen is off to the side and you can see them cooking your food. I go everytime I find myself in Saint John.

Thandi's is our favorite fine-dining restaurant in Saint John. The food is wonderful and the service excellent! We highly recommend this restaurant for a special night out or perhaps dining before seeing a show at Imperial Theatre.
