Just edges into 4-dot

A mix of about 50% Indian and 50% all sorts of other stuff: Thai, Chinese, Italian, French (steaks). Overall quality was good. Service was good. Wine list was good. Some specifics - I had the Chicken Masala. Spice blend was nice and balanced but with not a lot of complexity. Some more undertones... read more

Skip the Market Place Restaurants and walk the 2 blocks uphill to Thandi's. Lamb Marsela was tender and the samosas were outstanding. You will not find better Indian food anywhere. I would stop in Saint John just to eat in this restaurant!

Drove to Saint John for supper in celebration of my brother's birthday. Had heard great things about this restaurant and I must say there was certainly no disappointment. From the point we entered the door to departure the service with a smile was A1. Also, entrance aroma certainly made me feel it was going to be worth the journey. Couldn't... More

The food here was delicious and I really enjoyed myself my mother said that I couldn't eat it all but I did without much trouble even though that was a very decent serving I would strongly recommend any food is out there.

Went for parents 50th anniversary and my husband didn't even get his meal for an hour - which made it 30 minutes after the rest of us got ours. There was no offer of extra service, a quick appetizer to tide him over - I had to share my meal with him as he was starving. No apologies from management... More

There are more and more good places to eat in Saint John but Thandi's remains my favorite - so much so that when I get the chance to eat out in this city I have a hard time choosing a new place to try over this place. I suppose it really depends on what kind of cuisine you enjoy, but... More

Very tasty food, with provisions for dietary restrictions, including gluten free. Many vegetarian options. The hummus is amazing! Nice decor. Service was excellent. Ample wine list, with many by the glass options.

Great deco, food was surprisingly authentic and just right amount of complicated flavour, like good Indian food, with a tiny excitement of spicy. Waitress was very attentive. Great food and memorable evening. Taken out one star due to high prices.

This is one of my favorite places to eat in up town Saint John. The food and service are always good. It is also a place my son enjoys which is big considering he is a very fussy eater. Their ribs are amazing. I had my 40th birthday party here which was awesome. We had our own room with our... More
