    Loved everything. Only problem: 1st time visiting motivated by Resto Montreal coupons ($5 off on every $15 spent before taxes). Confirmed&double-checked upon arrival: "let's say I order 45$ before tax., I can use 3 coupons?". They validated. Bill was a bit over $60 before tax. I handed the 4 coupons. They came back saying it was max. 2 coupons per bill. I told them: 1- There is no fine print 2- I reminded him of our conversation 3- I firmly requested them to honor their promotion exactly as it's written in the coupons, otherwise it would be misrepresentation. After staff deliberation, they fixed the bill to include the 4 coupons. We're going back, and again will ask coupons to be honored exactly as printed. You should do the same.

    I have been going to Devi for a number of years now and have enjoyed it every single time. The decor is beautiful and the staff was friendly. I mostly enjoy the food- it is always delicious. The only issue I had was with my most recent visit for my own birthday and that was because there was a birthday party going on upstairs with children screaming and running around. It kind of ruined the ambiance for my small group looking for a quiet evening with the girls. I will definitely be returning but hopefully not on a night that was similar to that.

    We chose Devi as one of two Indian restaurants we know in Montreal. The experience was very good. The food was excellent, flavors familiar yet intriguing and every dish unique [ as an aside my wife grinds her own Indian spices and I am an chef- so we are not entirely unfamiliar with good Indian food]- the service affable, efficient and accommodating. We enjoyed the people watching and the street scene too. Although Devi is on one of the cities tourist(ier) streets- the experience was authentic. We will return again.

    The food was so fresh and delicious! The lambchops were out of this world delicious. They have a lot of the usual mainstays (tikka masala, saag paneer, etc.), but they're SO different from any other ones that I have had. Every dish tasted as if the vegetables had been freshly picked and prepared just for us. Try their specialty appetizers (the fried okra strings were quite delicious!)

    A restaurant with good food and mostly quiet ambience tucked away on Crescent. Make sure to order some of the appetizers - they are actually better than the mains, and the naan is great here, you get a ton and it's buttery. Don't go here and just order the butter chicken, you will miss out!

    My boyfriend and I are both vegan, and the waitress was very kind in asking the chef which dishes contain no animal products. We ending up getting the Aloo Gobi and Vegetable Jalfrazie main courses with sides of rice and roti. Everything was delicious, and the main courses had wonderful spices and flavors. The meal also came with Papadum and 2 dips (a coriander sauce and a chutney) on the side, which was all delicious too. I would definitely return to this place!

    It was my first experience with Indian food! I was not disappointed. The food was great, the portions were good, the ambiance was nice. But what really makes me want to go back is the fresh naan bread. I was to die for! If I had the chance to live close by, I would stop at Devi every day to buy my bread.

    Although the price was a bit high compared to other Indian places I've been to, the amount of sauce that comes with each dish is more than any other place I've been to as well as getting a lot of naan bread too. Would recommend.

    We had a great meal at Devi. Through no fault of the restaurant, my meal was too hot for me -- I simply ordered the wrong thing. I said I would pay for the meal, but would like to order something else. The staff was extremely solicitous, did not charge me, and made me a new meal that was absolutely wonderful. Service was stellar throughout. Excellent Indian food.

    I recently visited Montreal with my boyfriend for the first time and had dinner at Devi on my second night there. The food was some of the best Indian cuisine I have ever had, we had a great seat looking out onto the street, and the service was quick. The price ended up being about $50 each for a great meal and a bottle of wine - definitely worth it! Servers were polite but not overly friendly.

    We were visiting Montreal for the weekend and tried Devi after reading some good reviews. My husband had the lamb shank which he loved! We started with the lentil soup which was good but a bit watery for my taste. I had the Devi shrimp which was fresh and flavorful. On a busy street with a bunch of bars.

    Devi never fails to deliver on taste. Indian fare is elegantly presented. However, servers sometimes recommend too much food n wine pairings, and one can end up ordering a lot of food.Service could be improved. Indian fare is mild, caters to a non indian palate. Must try naan, kebabs, shrimp curry, chicken masala.

    The food was very delicious, the decor was very enchanting and it didn't feel too crowded even though the restaurant was full. The waiter was very nice, he explained some of the dishes on the menu and was able to match it with the right wine. Our only comment would be to add an entrée plater to the menu, so that we may taste more flavors. We were very happily surprised as we found this restaurant online and hadn't heard from it. We will definitely recommend and go back there!
