I love restaurants with only a few tables, and this is one of them. Combine it with great food and great service, and you have a winning combination. This place is a definite come-again for us

Went for dinner with friends on a -26°C evening. What better than to warm yourself up from the inside with fabulous curry! Everything was fantastic, especially the chicken vindaloo. The naan was perfectly cooked. Very friendly staff and owner. I will be going back!

A quaint little Indian restaurant in downtown Montréal. The food was delicious and the service quite agreeable. If you want spicy food, I suggest the Madrass part of the menu - my personal preference. Prices were quite reasonable and quantities more than enough.

Very tasty. My wife took a combo platter and me more elaborated choices (chicken balti, etc). Both were perfect. Not that spicy, but I did not try the vindaloo ;-)
