Interestingly yummy

Tikka Masala was what I ordered. It was very different than what I've had in the past. But I liked it. A bit spicier as well. But I liked it. It was a rather chunky tomato masala. The serving sizes are large and could certainly be split by 2 people. I was probably disappointed that rice and... read more

An annual events for the women of the Cinema and Media Studies Conference was held here and it was truly a wonderful experience. The restaurant staff were welcoming and helpful. We had the upstairs room, which is exquisitely beautiful. The seating was comfortable, too. But the food was the star. A fine variety of delicious vegetarian choices for three courses... More

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

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

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.
