Ordered for delivery. The food wasn't packaged well and there was sauce all over everything! The butter chicken was chewy and inedible, the saag paneer tasteless and the onion bhaji was cold and soggy. The Garlic naan was oddly sticky and had an extreme amount...More

Our family of six had dinner. My kids were hesitant to try 'something new' and they ate every last bit of everything we ordered. The staff was helpful with our order and engaged in conversation with all of us.

Centre-Ville (Downtown)
Montreal's towering skyline is concentrated in the
Downtown area, its nexus of commerce and
commercialism. A suffusion of luxury hotels, flagship
stores, high-end restaurants, and corporate
headquarters characterize the neighborhood, which by
nightfall transforms from a business district into a
youth-culture hotspot, with hip bars, clubs, and
restaurants heavily peopled by students and young
