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

When we arrived we wanted to sit outside as it was a beautiful evening; the maitre d/ manager/ owner (not sure) was very accommodating as far as keeping us comfortable while waiting for the first available table, as we said we were willing to wait for an outside table rather than eat inside. He continued to be attentive and welcoming... More

I have been to Devi umpteen number of times in the last two decades, but somehow missed writing a review. It's time to make amends! The restaurant supposedly opens at 11:00 a.m. My reservation was for 11:30, for lunch with two companions. The staff appeared to be gearing up for the day but attended to me immediately as I settled... 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!

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.
