The food is good with lots of variety although sometimes I find the consistency a challenge,..maybe there is a issue with different chefs. The wait staff is very attentive, helpful and friendly The place is good for lunch or dinner and good for families or business meetings or dinner or with friends or a date...it has 2 floors and lots...

Had a great supper. The flavours were excellant. Tried the calamari and it was a new way to do it and we loved it.

Visited this venue with a group of friends. We all ordered different dishes, sampling as we went. Overall, the food was decent. Portion size was fair and taste was good as well. "Spicy" dishes were flavourful but was not really that spicy, so order away, it won't be that hot. Service was good. They offer a gluten-free section with cider... More

The menu is varied and extensive. There is a page listing gluten free options and vegan options are noted. We both had the wonton soup which was different from that found in the Chinese restaurants in Saint John as the broth was flavoured with lemon grass -- very good. DH had a steak and I had butter chicken. Both were... More

Hi Susan, Thank you for reviewing Thandi. Happy to see someone enjoyed a steak. Thandi does have great steaks. Our specialty as you are aware is our curry but there are several other great dishes to be enjoyed as well. If you have a chance to try our Seafood Chowder on Fridays you will not be disappointed More

It is a great place for dinner and can get busy very easy, especially on Friday or Saturday nights. They have Indian and Thai dishes can vary the spice level. I liked mine more spicy so I asked for it. My first visit I did not and it didn't taste that great.

Thank you Kiran, you are correct the chef's are happy to assist in the level of spice one wishes. Not all patrons prefer the spicier dishes so we have to go middle of the road but are happy to accommodate for those that prefer a more flavorful spice level More

Thandi's is a great place for lunch or dinner. Food is great every time. Such a nice atmosphere. We tend to bring clients here from out of town as you know it will be an enjoyable experience.

Lovely ambience in a great location. Waiter was very attentive and gave us great service throughout the meal. Very overpriced for what you get though. I have eaten Indian food throughout the world but I'm afraid neither mine or my wife's curry tasted like authentic Indian curry. Both were similar to chilli based meals in my opinion. Nowhere in the... More

Just seen this walking by and was waived in by customers stating it was the best. We had app's only but they were amazing. Calamari, Caesar Salad and Samos were to die for. The Calamari was the BEST I have ever had. Wicked Indian food by the looks of the smiles as the dishes were being served all around..
