I ate here last night, we were 4 people. The food was absolutely amazing. We started with onion bhajee and the chef's salad - both were extremely fresh. We had butter chicken, lamb madras, palak paneer and chicken tikka. Every single bite was delicious and succulent! It wasn't overpowering with spice, it was fresh and full of flavor. The service was better than any other time I have been here, seems like they are improving. The only thing that is not the greatest, is how close the tables are to each other. We asked to move to another section so we could have more room.

If you are looking for good indian food, this is some of the best in Montreal!!!

I read a few other reviews for this place and was shocked to read those!
I would definitely suggest the Tandoori chicken and the Gobi Manchurian here!!
Ambience was not too great but the overall quality of food was very nice.
I felt like being in India and eating in a Restaurant.
Delicious food.
Biriyani was not too great but Chicken Tandoori was like no other!!
Must try, if for nothing else, the tandoori atleast!

On the 2-block stretch, there are about 6 or 7 indian / pakistani restaurants in this part of town. Tandoor & Grille is big and clean and seems to be a popular spot for non-indian crowd. That must be the reason why their foods are toned down a lot and taste different than the usual mom-and-pop indian restaurants. We sampled different plates and nothing really excited my palate. Their chicken balti and beef vindaloo are just average, chicken biryani is not good at all (lot of white meat though), only their fish pakora and naans are above average.

One dish that stood out that night is the "crispy lamb" (lamb dipped in gram flour and fried with herbs). I really cannot tell the difference between this dish and the usual "General Tao chicken".

Price is a bit high compared to other indian eateries in the area but still fair. Service is very amateurish.

Living in West island, we pakistanis do not have a better choice than to go once in a while to this restaurant because
a- it has a good ambiance (compare to other south asian restaurant in this area)
b- price is reasonable &
c- it`s halal

However, the service sucks.

Since the begining of this restaurant on this location (opposite to Adonis), their clientale has grown (justifiably) and we were happy we have a good restaurant in this area where we can take our guests and even visitors from other cities of North America. But with the growth, the managment did not focus on improvement of service. The waiters and waiteress are always running and yet they do not provide service that is expected on your table i.e. timely replenishing naans, bringing water, serving deserts on time etc... Often they missed bookings or changing rooms etc.. Even for paying the bills you have to get into the queue at the paying counter.

I have registered these complaints to the partners including Lari saheb, let`s see if they can sacrifice a bit of profit to increase their serving crew to further increase their satisfied customers.

Can't imagine the standards of those who liked this restaurant. The place has a good potential but is not maintained at all. As soon as you enter the restaurant the smell overwhelms you. The sticky floors, unclean bathroom can't go unnoticed. Can't imagine their kitchen. Very unsanitary condition. On top the A/C was not working either. The staff and owner kept blaming the hot weather. But they simply do not have adequate A/C system that is capable of supporting their party rooms. Their Internet gave out also. Food was average. We have seen lot better. Overall experience was extremely unsatisfactory.
