For you soup lovers, I highly recommend Thandi. I tried the "soup of the day" (different kind) 3 times and it's 100% success. Rich flavors, perfect portion of spices and served in a very accurate size bowl. Came out the kitchen quickly (unlike the main courses) and fairly priced.

The perfect blend of great food and an upscale but casual atmosphere, Thandi's has the best dahl makhani ever. Service is great. Portions are large enough for two diners...but the food is too yummy to share. A great place to dine in Uptown Saint John--not to be missed, especially if you love curry.

Eastern food is extremely tasty. Never eaten non eastern food here. We started off with a mixed platter for two - a variety of Indian / Thai starters, good value for money. Then we shared lamb rogan josh and chicken korma. Would recommend if you enjoy Indian / Thai food.

Our entire group agreed that the seafood chowder was the best! Parker our server was amazing, efficient & friendly. Ambience was rustic, warm & quite cozy & quaint. Fabulous dinning experience in Saint John. Hoping to be fortunate enough to return someday.

Was visiting in the city of Saint John and was craving butter chicken. The reviews for Thandi's has been excellent and my brief stop for appetizer last year peaked my interest. Wow from the time I walked thru the door and was met by the wonderful Julie who got us a table (recommend reservations) and was left in the capable... More

Amazing food, service and atmosphere. Expect to pay over $ 100 for dinner and drinks for two but also expect to have a very nice experience. We loved it. I think this was our third visit and each time is excellent! This place deserves its high ranking! Amazing uptown location too.

We were part of a large group on a Friday evening. Nice downtown location and very busy. My partner and I had the fresh halibut, chowder and steak salad. Everything was wonderful including the service. Hard to carry a conversation because it was so busy but all in all a great experience and we would return.

My fiance and I went here very recently, the food was very good! It was pretty expensive but the butter chicken was amazing and we will definitely be going back very soon!

I love this place. The service is great, the atmosphere is friendly and classy, and the curry is fantastic!! The dahl makhani is the best I've had in a restaurant anywhere, and is served with homemade naan and papadam and a big mound of basmati. One order is enough for two people, but it's so good you won't want to... More
