I went there to follow the hype surrounding the food. I ordered nachos, I received na'an bread and jam. I found the food expensive for what it was, but the restaurant itself was very beautiful.

Although not a frequent patron at Thandi's we generally visit a couple of times a year or so. Their prices are on the high side for Saint John ($33.00 plus for a steak) so it's not one of our regulars. Their entrees are good, fresh and plentiful and we never leave there hungry. They do take liberity with classic dishes... More

We came to the city from St. Stephen to do a little shopping and decided to eat here for lunch. The place did not disappoint. We all thoroughly enjoyed our meals and wine. The ambiance is lovely and look forward to visiting in the evening as they have the greatest lighting fixtures, it must look divine at night. Our server... More

Definitely in my top 3 restaurants in Saint John. The food never disappoints, and the atmosphere is warm and inviting. Great ambiance. The wait staff always have just the right touch - the perfect balance between friendly and professional. I picked Thandi's for my birthday dinner last night and it was really just perfect.

We love Thandis (though in 2 yrs we still aren't 100% sure how to pronounce it)! The pad Thai is always the same, and by that I mean EXCELLENT. Service is always pleasant, one of our favourites.

Thandi's is always a great dinning experience. The food is always fresh, consistently flavorful , reasonably priced and served in ample portions. Our go to restaurant is never a disappointment. Service is always very good with helpful waiters willing to explain each dish when questioned. Lunch specials are always a treat at an even better price. A must when you... More

We have visited Thandi's many times for an evening dinner before I fly out on a business trip. The food is great and the service is good. The wine is also a great price and there is a good selection. We will.be back.

My wife and I recently switched to a Vegan diet, but this place was already on out top 10 list of SJ restaurants before then. But now, we love this place even more. We recently got their Channa Masala (vegan version) to go... and it was perfect. The one serving was plenty for both of us, though we did buy... More
