I’m not sure when I spotted the Thali in downtown Montréal. It’s just a chapatti’s throw north off Rue Ste. Catherine on the east side of St. Marc, occupying a nondescript aluminum storefront that has served many masters over its lifetime. I have fond memories of enjoying a thali at the Punjab Palace on Jean-Talon, where the chef’s daughters serving... More

A great spot for a very informal, authentic East Indian meal. The food is fresh, plentiful and ridiculously inexpensive for the amount you are given. If you are staying at the Le Meridien or on Sherbrooke it is close by. Don't let the exterior fool you its great "fast" food.

This place is always busy because they have good thali's for a low price. I don't go for anything a la carte but it's great for a cheap and filling thali

Excellent take out deal with 2 meats, a vegetable choice, rice, Naan and Poppadum for $10. The butter chicken was outstanding. Prefer take out as the interior is a bit drab. But the service was very friendly.

Walked for an hour to find Thali, after reading good reviews prior to my trip to Montreal. Got there and found it was not a great experience, and not worth my time and effort to get there. The fact that it is a cafe in appearance was surprising, but not too significant as I still wanted to try the food.... More

It's hard not to eat here everyday. I almost always get the alu goby, chana masala, and sambar. Their samosas are unreal. I love the staff. They do their job and they're good at it. I dream about their food.

This little hole in the wall restaurant is a favorites not only among students but also among locals living in the downtown core. They have a $10, (tax incl) dish that gives you 2 meat selections, one vegetarian dish, rice, a full nan and papadam. Where else can you get that much food for 10 bucks. It was so much... More

You can expect Good Quality of Indian food over here within a reasonable price. The place is usually packed and full.Their vegetarian and non vegetarian combination plates are good for those who are on budget. Otherwise you can order the dishes separately. I would suggest Palak paneer and Chana masala for vegetarians and Butter Chicken and lamb curry for non... More

Went for lunch buffet. Ordered the veg and the meat combo plates. On the large section a huge mound of white rice was placed, topped with a huge piece of naan, and that topped with papadum (no chutneys). In the 3 small plate sections we had choices of veg and meat dishes. The butter chicken (orange sauce) was average. The... More

If you are looking for basic North Indian food at a low price, this is the place to go in Montreal. It is not far from Centreville. They had a sign announcing that they serve South Indian masala dosa but they don't -- it is an old sign. The food is filling.

Staying in Centre-Ville (Downtown)

Neighbourhood Profile
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 professionals. The once-seat of millionaire's 'Golden Square Mile', an incongruity of stately mansions and dapper brownstones sit between glass skyscrapers, creating a visually lush urban landscape. Beneath the sidewalks lay the Underground City, the world's largest below-ground mall, a labyrinth of over 1,500 shops and eateries that echo the profusion of cafes, gallerias, cinemas, and fashion outlets above. From the scholarly array at McGill University to the carousing crowds of Rue Crescent, visit Downtown to shop by day for what you'll wear there by night.
