I am by no means an expert on Indian food, but it's pretty easy to tell that this place makes good food! It was pretty crowded when we arrived at about 8:30 on a Friday night. The only remaining "seating" was a little alcove on the floor with cushions and tiny tables. I'm always up for an adventure, although my... More

We found this on our first night in Montreal and couldn't have been more pleased. Its a cute & cozy restaurant with really good food. We did our waiters suggestion and did the Thali plate which didn't disappoint. The vegetables were amazing. I ordered the curry chicken and you got a little extra with plate, thought it was great for... More

My husband and I had never really tried Indian food before and we loved it! The waitress was super helpful explaining stuff and the decor was cute complete with pillows on the floor with tables traditional style. We would have went back if they were open before we left!

I would like to give this place more of a "good" rating of 3.5 stars, but I'm rounding down since I don't think I'll ever eat there again. On the plus side, the food was very flavorful and seemed to be of good quality. Also, the atmosphere was very romantic and cozy. We sat at a table - I don't... More

I've been going to this restaurant for a number of years (back when the sign still said Le Pain de l'Inde) at lunch time (when it's open) and for dinner (always open). It is without a doubt my favorite indian restaurant in Montreal. The place didn't use to look like much but now that it's been renovated, the ambiance is... More

Overall great meal at Resto Darbar. We were pleasantly surprised at how delicious the food was, while at the same time being very reasonably priced. The staff are very kind, and do their best to make sure you enjoy the food. They were able to accommodate a mild palate, to very spicy, pleasing everyone. A few down sides: Table was... More
