“Favourite local and favourite Indian restaurant.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 4, 2011

Maison India is the kind of restaurant you go back to again and again. The consistency of the service, atmosphere and of course food is unsurpassed. The menu is tantalizing and I think over the years they have only improved; something most restaurants fail to do. Their appetizers are simply mouth-watering - anything deep-fried is light and bursting with flavour, and usually accompanied by a refreshing salad. Their delicious chickpea in tamarind sauce & potato galette appetizer is a perennial favourite with anyone we bring.

As a vegetarian, it is a pleasure to dine at Maison India because of the variety and nature of their vegetarian options - however, my father cannot speak highly enough of their hot beef curries and butter chicken. I would highly recommend the paneer dishes, especially the shahi paneer which although pricier than some of the vegetable curries is out of this world. Even their most simple dishes are delicious and thoughtfully constructed though - the mixed vegetable curry is great.

With reasonably priced wine options, lovely desserts and gorgeous presentation this is a restaurant we frequently bring guests to; we have never been disappointed and will keep going back as long as we live in Montreal.

“Excellent Indian Restaurant”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 3, 2011 via mobile

We are from Toronto and everytime we went to Quebec we always stop in this restaurant.
The service was excellent and the food taste really fantastic, I love the Gulap jamun which is not so sweet as regular Gulap jamun.
The price is reasonable and the portion is perfect.
High recommended for Indian food lover.

“Very good, consistent and nice setting”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 4, 2011

Have been coming to this place for years. So far never disappoints.

I LOVE Indian food. Traveled there 3 times and spent quite some time. And honestly the food they service in Maison India does not feel ``westernized``. Actually I regularly see Indian customers here, which is always to me a good testement of the quality of the food.

They have a wide selection. We usually take the Vege platter for two plus a few things here and there as appetizer. The Aloo Gobi is really good. And yes, it will probably be a slight variation to what you have tried before. I never had Aloo Gobi done the same way. Everyone goes with their variation and adds a twist.

Prices are reasonable. Portions too, not big but not Weight Watcher either. They have a selection of alcohol, including Indian beers. Staff has been stable for years. And they also have an outdoor setting for the warm days. Just read that they started offering Lunch Buffer ($10 to $13 depending of weekday/weekend).

It's not downtown but really not far. Easily accessible by car (there is always Parkin) or public transport (metro Vendome + Bus, I think).

Highly recommend it.
