“Superb Indian food at a great price.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 14, 2013

Based on a friends recommendation we had dinner here while visiting Montréal. It's a bit out-of-the-way although easily accessible by metro. The food was delicious with great portions. It's obviously a neighborhood favorite.

“Excellent taste and value”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 11, 2013 via mobile

This apportez-votre-vin restaurant has the perfect balance of great-tasting food for an affordable price. The service is fast and friendly, many waiters and the owner recognize myself and my partner when we go. I have tried many things on the menu and have loved everything. My favorite is probably the lamb korma. I agree with other reviews that this place is always full and is very noisy, but that's fine; if you are like me, you prefer to pay for the food and service and not for the atmosphere.

“Average.”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed July 5, 2013

The food was very average, the service slow, washrooms unclean. It was quite reasonably priced though. Nothing to write home about.

“Great Indian dinner @ Bombay Mahal!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 28, 2013

I love this place - food is tasteful and delicious, I love the service, and the ambiance. Yes it's loud, but since when India is quiet??! It's a great restaurant for a casual dinner & byow. Food is cooked well and traditional Indian recipes. The Chicken Korma is amazing!!!! The Onion Bhazi starts well the meal. I also love their Thali and Biryani. Don't forget the naan :) The prices are very good too. I went a few times and it was always good. Can't wait to go back!

“You have been warned”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed February 15, 2013

The food is okay, but I am concerned about customer safety. This place is an overcrowded firetrap. You have been warned. If you decide to go anyway, stay away from the exposed baseboard heaters and faulty wiring. My coat caught fire (I am not kidding), and the manager refused to cover the damages. Go to DEV on Victoria instead.
