Best Indian food in a great location

Forget what you have heard or read, I am an expert on Indian Cuisine and this ranks up there with the Bombay Brasserie in London in my opinion. Great atmosphere, informed and cordial staff, reasonably priced and conveniently located. A great change of pace for your dining.

Indian cuisine is one of my very favorites. I'm a big fan of the flavors and spices and, as a mostly vegetarian-pescatarian diner, I very much appreciate that Indian restaurants don't relegate me to having only one or two options. Thus, I usually try to find good Indian restaurants whenever I travel. After discovering Devi, I know that each time... More

This is a restaurant worthy of a visit! It's beautiful interior is welcomes you as you step in and the food is worth coming back for! Devi has the best naan I've ever had and main courses are divine. We really appreciated the friendly and gear service to top it all. Was a lovely evening and looking forward to future... More

The flavours are richly authentic and spiced beautifully.By far one of the best Indian restaurants in Montreal.Try the achari paneer tikka as an entree,it is pickled perfection.Their lamb and chicken main courses are amazing.Definitely a pleasant experience.

Never had Indian food but this place really satisfied my tastes. They had a special for lunch, $11.95 (CAN) with a main dish (minus the drink) appetizer and dessert. A bit pricey, but worth it.

Not the best Indian food we ever had but overall the dinner hit the spot. Note most of the portions at Devi are generous and two can easily share. This would make the meal more economical as the prices are steep for Indian but then again, you must remember that you are dining on famous Crescent St., heart of Montreal's... More

This is probably the best Indian restaurant in Canada. The food was awesome. I would have surely rated 5 stars but for a waiter who openly asked to be tipped even though its not my practice to tip the very first time.

I have lunch at Devi about once a month: the price is right, the food is reliable if not outstanding, and it's usually a quiet place where one can chat in a relaxed atmosphere. The lunch menu is limited: in effect, you simply choose your main dish from one option in each of the meat, fish, poultry and vegetarian categories,... More
