Devi has possibly the best kitchen for North Indian cuisine in North America. Their Malai Tikka, Nan breads. Parathas and koftas are very very good. Delicately spiced and tender, their tandoori fish and prawns are a delight. We used their catering services for a party at home recently. Excellent service and piping hot, plentiful food, left our guests complementing the... More

If you have a poor service and chased by the staff because you did not pay the regular 15% tip how will you feel? As a customer one reserves the right to tip the server for the service provided. However if you do not like the food and the service and you are asked rather demanded to pay at least... More

Devi is located on rue Crescebt, centre-ville Montreal's main party strip, with many excellent watering holes but not so many serious restaurants. I love Indian food and decided to give it a try. It was wonderful. Started with papadums which they serve in a cone shape rather than flat like every other Indian place I've ever visited. Then had an... More

I used to bring employees or more casual clients to Devi very often for business lunch, it is right next to my office. Unfortunately, I had the BAD idea to call for delivery. After waiting 5 hours and myself making several calls to follow up on the order (they NEVER called me to apologize for the wait or inform me... More

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
