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

A friend from India recommended this restaurant as "most authentic" in Saint John and I can see why. I enjoyed the Bombay Chicken Curry. I asked for hot, I got HOT!! The portion was huge (I managed to only eat half and brought the rest home for lunch the next day) and the flavors absolutely beautiful. Fusion of fresh Indian... More

My wife and I were visiting Saint John, and we like Indian food. The somewhat mixed reviews of this place made me wonder, but we decided to give it a try anyway. My lamb saag was very good, and the Asian dish my wife ordered was also good. Portions are large, so be hungry or take some home. One thing... More

I tried the pad thai, which was spectacular and my husband had the lamb curry with rice also very good. The waiter and hostess are very pleasant and helpful. This was probably the most geniune thai I have had in my travels. A must stop.
