Service, décor and food - all excellent. My daughter and I visited this restaurant twice during our five day stay in Montreal, never ordering the same thing twice - only because everything was so delicious we wanted to try more! The staff were friendly and helpful, explaining dishes so we had a better idea of what we wanted to try.... More

This restaurant is tucked away on Crescent, not exactly a food mecca. But it is a lovely place, if you know what to order! First, the main dishes are good, but not great - there are other Indian restaurants in the area that do better butter chicken, for instance, though Devi's is not bad. What really shines here are some... More

The sweets dishes are good. Definitely worth... More

I am of Indian origin, and let me say that I was surprised by what they served! Samosa & kababs were tolerable. Gobi manchuri (indo-chinese style cauliflower) was 3 roasted florets covered in what appeared to be gussied up ketchup. Chettinad chicken was chicken in a tomato/onion sauce (more like North indian rather than from the south). I could go... More

We enjoyed the vegetarian meal, and the atmosphere was congenial. Not too expensive, and easy walk from our B&B. We ate early in the evening, before things got very busy out on the street (...which is lined with restaurants and bars).

This was probably our best meal in Montreal. Exceptional food and service and very charming inside. Expensive for Indian, but just about all food in Montreal is pricey.

Wonderful indian food on a busy street in downtown Montreal. My husband had the lamb shank which he loved. I had the Devi Shrimp which was fresh and flavorful. Great service too!

I took my family here the other night. The food was average but not great for the price.4.00 extra for a small bowl of rice wow that's a first. The staff was great that's why I gave it 3 stars.
