Terrible indian cuisine - I make better butter chicken

Let me start by saying when I went to get my food there were no dinner plates. When I asked one of the employees for plates, he said "ask him" pointing to the manager. The manager told me they ran out of dinner plates. I had to use a smaller plate (dessert plate). The food was disappointing, not a... read more

Not so pleased with this place! Food was not so good, tasted like it came from a jar. The buffet was not labeled as to the name of the dishes provided. A lot of deep fried greasy food. The food was not kept hot enough. Service was slow and decor was old & ugly. When I went into the restaurant... More

I loved the old buffet. It was under a different management. Every time I used to visit Montreal, I made sure I eat there. This time I went there and I was extremely disappointed. The restaurant has a different entrance and it is not the old glory, spacious and enlightened place. It is small and dull. It is like eating... More

The last time we had food at the restaurant was in 2008, the food was tasty, they had lots of variety and the place was clean then. This time they had very limited menu, it tasted horrible. the service was really bad and the place is so unclean.... More

This is not an Indian cuisine, but Indian look like Bangladeshi cuisine, run by Bangladeshi management. You would get the feeling when you have a look at dal and vegetable dishes.somebody should teach them how to prepare Indian cuisine. I made a mistake going to this place and had a terrible time. Stay away from this restaurant. I bet even... More

They really have terrible food in very expensive price. Won't go again. We have many other better places. I would rather have Macdonald burger.

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.
