I was in Montreal arriving late Friday night and staying at the Omni so wanted something closeby. The TripAdvisor reviews looked good and the restaurant didn't disappoint. It took me 20 minutes to wait for a table but the staff were very accommodating. They have an excellent wine list including Indian wines and a small selection of draught beers. The... More

This restaurant was right around the corner from my hotel. I went in expecting to have to trade off convenience for quality but I was very wrong. The experience I had was wonderful! I enjoyed succulent fish tikka, fluffy rice, delicious chutneys of types unusual for UK diners, and very friendly and helpful service. I have to eat gluten free... More

An incredible dining experience for an Indian Restaurant. Having seen many that aren't always decorated in a contemporary way and been in many with lesser service, to have such incredible food too in a chic environment with incredibly attentive servers I felt was leading unto a hefty bill. Not at all. I highly recommend the Chicken Jafrazi and Lamb Bhuna,... More

Tasty, wonderful food served with kindness and good cheer. Very pretty, clean, and quiet (in a very good way!!) Lots of patrons, but the sound level was well controlled. The lamb and beef were beautifully seasoned and the rice, nan, and samosas lovely. Highly recommended and well situated in downtown Montreal.

The atmosphere here is great. It is spacious and clean. This place is a class act. There is a grand wine display with a variety to choose from. The décor and music are pleasantly and authentically Indian. This is the perfect place for friends, by yourself, business lunch or dinner and of course, a romantic date. The service is excellent....

The food was delicious, the service was excellent and their advising on portions, heat and flavour combinations was bang on. Restaurant not too busy on a Sunday evening although nor was it dead. Plates hot and all the food very freshly cooked. No sense of being rushed. Delish.

We found this restaurant by chance and were lucky to get a table as it is very busy. We had garlic naan, butter chicken and chicken tikka masala. Everything was delicious. The only drawback was the huge crowd and that it always seemed very busy all around us. But we loved the food.
