This is where we go when we want to be sure of a great meal. Usually go for business lunches. Nicely renovated historic property.

Excellent Food. I was looking for Indian Vegeterian meal.. And i found it here :). The taste is good supported by the cheerful ambiance. The chef is from India too.. That helped him to understand my taste better.

Party of three, two adults and one toddler. We were seated promptly without reservation. We were offered a children's menu but afterwards were told none were available... it was really the only thing we could say didn't work out-- although really a non-factor. My partner had the Butter Chicken while I had the Rajon Josh. Both were delicious, we sampled... More

The Food was spectacular, the service impecable. LOVE THIS PLACE. My choice for Business lunches also. I work uptown and drive here for the best food besides Big Tide's Pub which is a different menu but just as fabulous.

For my birthday in July my family took me to eat at Thandis and I had a delicious steak with bacon wrapped scallops on top. Steak and scallops are two of my favorite foods. I asked for the steak to be cooked medium well but it was too well done for my liking. Other than that everything was very tasty,... More

Thandi's is an excellent Indian restaurant in the historic "Uptown" district of St. John. The food and service are both excellent. Try the specialty curry dishes - don't bother with the regular and fusion options. Why bother to come to a good Indian restaurant if you don't want authentic Indian food?

With only a few hours to spend in this delightful city we thought we'd try a restaurant recommended to us by one of it's fans. The Thandi is nice to go for what might be considered "fusion"food. The service was prompt, courteous and most resourceful. The food was good tasting but thought for the mid thirties range there could have... More

We love eating at Thandi's. You never have to guess about the quality of food, the excellence of service or the ambiance. I also appreciate how much the owners give back to the community they serve. An excellent example to all business persons.

Consistent good quality food! Best calamari in Saint John. Very good curry always spiced appropriately. Work up an appetite before going as the portions are large!

The ambiance here is nice - very clean, vaguely upscale and yet welcoming. We sat in the booth area on the main floor which was nice with a view of the street. The servers brought appetizer hummus & naan which was delicious, though the naan was a bit more pita-y than I've had elsewhere. Still good! I had the butter... More
