Authentic Indian food, great vegetarian options

We were three women enjoying an evening in Montreal while on vacation. One of our group follows a vegan diet so we chose Indian food as an easy option that would satisfy everyone. Samosas were large and delicious, without a trace of grease. The three of us shared Chana masala (very spicy and... read more

We were moved to three different tables because of a 'new' hostess. Wasn't a great start but we didn't complain, particularly because the last table was under an air vent and the restaurant was otherwise very warm. The manager apologized and told us it was 'unacceptable' to be treated this way but apparently not unacceptable enough to offer us anything... More

We ordered delivery late in the evening, which arrived sooner than was anticipated. The prices are fantastic, the food was absolutely wonderful, and the service over the phone and through the delivery driver was top notch. Polite, friendly, and eager to please. We will most certainly be visiting the restaurant in person next time we are in Montreal!

On a tip from our concierge, we squeezed into Devi for an early dinner before a concert. The manager was super friendly and had a great sense of humor. The food was just what we had been craving - spicy Indian! Their Sangria was delicious too. We had Samosas, Chicken Korma, Chettinad and Devi Shrimp, to name a few of... More

Arrived in Montreal hungry and decided to walk around the block. Came upon Devi and was drawn in by the beautiful little outdoor seating area... Perfect for people watching. Our waiter was very attentive and easily spoke English for us. The menu was good sized, with lots of options for appetizers, breads, salads, sides and entrees. Our food arrived quickly... More

They have a good fixed-price, lunch special. The soup was excellent. The naan was good. The main dish (chicken tikka masala, I think) was ok. Lovely ambience. I was the only person there at first. It is close to the subway station.

Ordered off their regular menu for delivery thinking it would better choice than their combo meal. The appetizer was nice - Chicken tikka but had a little bit of bitterness. Not sure why. Then I opened up the Lamb Roganjosh and it was utterly different than any Roganjosh I have ever eaten - small or big restaurant does not matter.... More

Dear Anil, Thank you for your review. We apologize that your recent experience was not an enjoyable one with our dish as you found it bland. We cater to variety of palates , because of which we have to keep spice level at a medium unless our guests have specific request.. It' is unfortunate that you found our lamb dish... More

Staying in Centre-Ville (Downtown)

Neighborhood Profile
Centre-Ville (Downtown)
Montreal's towering skyline is concentrated in the Downtown area, its nexus of commerce and commercialism. A suffusion of luxury hotels, flagship stores, high-end restaurants, and corporate headquarters characterize the neighborhood, which by nightfall transforms from a business district into a youth-culture hotspot, with hip bars, clubs, and restaurants heavily peopled by students and young professionals. The once-seat of millionaire's 'Golden Square Mile', an incongruity of stately mansions and dapper brownstones sit between glass skyscrapers, creating a visually lush urban landscape. Beneath the sidewalks lay the Underground City, the world's largest below-ground mall, a labyrinth of over 1,500 shops and eateries that echo the profusion of cafes, gallerias, cinemas, and fashion outlets above. From the scholarly array at McGill University to the carousing crowds of Rue Crescent, visit Downtown to shop by day for what you'll wear there by night.
