Can't express how much I love this place. A nice quiet dining experience and the food doesn't disappoint. My fallback is always the stuffed chicken. Moist and juicy and nicely seasoned. The ribs have never let me down either. Their sides tend to rotate. Smashed garlic potatoes are one of the best I've ever had and the roasted baked potato... More

We were at Thandi's for dinner. The food was delicious and portions were reasonable as we experienced during past visits. The atmosphere was nice. The service was fine although the waiter appeared not so friendly with no smile on his face. I recommend Thandi's restaurant to others.

What a great find! Had a very good meal here, waiter was very helpful, and my curry was fantastic (with enough for leftovers). Walkable to our hotel, and after dinner we went for a nice walk by the water. Definitely worth a visit!

As we were driving lost through the streets of Saint John looking for a meal we saw a wall dedicated to the notable folks from Saint John. In that building was a lovely Indian restaurant called Thandi's. It was early so we were seated immediately. The naan and dip that comes before ordering was excellent. I ordered the Lamb Korma,...

Authentic and consistently good, with large selection and knowledgeable waiters. We have visited 5 or 6 times, and not been disappointed.

I was in Saint John for work and stayed at Cheteau Saint John , which was great a well. Walked to "Uptown Saint John" and stumbled on this gem . It was the best butter chicken I have ever tasted. If you get an opportunity you should not pass it up. I will be back. Loved the atmosphere but most... More

I adore the butter chicken here...but myself and close friends have had a number of poor service experiences. These include, but are not limited to the time a reservation was not available to us for 45 mins while complaining about how they were busy with customers. They did not offer to bring us beverages while we waited or an appetizer... More

We frequent Thandi's as often as time allows. We have never been disappointed with food quality, service and atmosphere. We highly recommend.

I am so disgusted at how I was treated by the manager at Thandi. First, when I made the reservation(over a month ago) she made fun of the fact that we were having a baby shower there. I threatened to cancel my reservation of 14 and then she changed her tune. She called today to confirm the reservation stating that... More
