    We thought it would be appropriate to have supper at an indian Restaurant after viewing THE 100-FOOT JOURNEY which BTW is an incredible movie. The food was simply succulent and the atmosphere superb! A fantastic location and amazing staff. We have had indian in many different restaurants in Montreal as well as at various locations in the UK over the years and Gandhi is one of the best we've had. Thanks for the great evening and we're looking forward to our next visit.

    The Restaurant Gandhi is tucked away in a little corner of Old Montreal. It dosn't shout out its presence for all to hear. I am glad for that because when more people hear about this place, its going to be very difficult to make a spontaneous decision to eat there any evening. The food is outstanding. At my last visit, we were a party of seven. Looks like the Gandhi now has six more loyal patrons. Start off with the Muligatawny soup (ask for a bit of pepper in it). Follow up with the lamb bryani as well as the lamb vindaloo (spicy) to go with it. Garlic Naan is also great with the vindaloo. Oh crikey!! my mouth is watering already. Looks like I will have to take a drive this evening. Remember, don't tell anyone about the Gandhi.

    The food was excellent! We were served with sesame crisp and 3 dipping sauce when we were first seated. The dipping sauce was really tasty! We ordered lamp curry and chicken masala paired with both rice and nan bread. Everything was delicious and the service was wonderful! Will likely to visit again.

    We ate at Gandhi restaurant several times while in Montreal. The first time, one of our group asked for a special menu item that she had seen at other restaurants. The chef agreed to make this special item for her, which thrilled her to death. The service was top-notch and friendly. The food was excellent, with the level of spice that we ordered. The dessert ice cream with pistachios and mango was also wonderful.

    Where are the spices? It is nice to cater to the average guest but if you want something genuine, you better go somewhere else. You will find no Indians eating there. On the other hand , the service is the best I have seen in an Indian restaurant in Montreal.

    Disclaimer - I am an Indian & thus very critical of Indian food. We were in Montreal during Formula One in June '14 & visited Gandhi after reading some online reviews about it. I went with 2 other Indian friends & we ordered a variety of items - appetizers, curry, lamb, chicken, matar paneer, biryani etc. Everything that we ordered was a disappointment. The flavor just wasn't there & overall the food was very bland. My friends shared my opinion. The food may be okay for someone who new to Indian food, who wants to try it for the first time, without being overwhelmed with the aroma/spices. On the plus side, the service was good and being in Old Montreal, the location is pretty good. The ambiance was fine dining, which is also appreciated.

    Absolutely lovely location, great multi-lingual staff (English, French, Bengali, Hindi) and OUTSTANDING FOOD. Their Peshwari naan is hands-down the best in Montreal and rivals the great Indian restaurant quality of London, UK. The rest is on par with home-cooked delicacies prepared in the finest gourmet house of India. Bengali food at the peak of its powers!

    Cela fait plusieurs fois que je pratique le Ghandi et au-delà de l’excellence générale de ce restaurant, c'est la constance du menu qui ne se dément pas, les mêmes critères de qualité, les mêmes saveurs des plats qui me ravissent. On sait à quoi s'attendre quoi. Le service est toujours courtois et discret et le décor fort agréable. Bref c'est un restaurant qui répond à mes goûts en matière de cuisine indienne simple et efficace sans être gastronomique ni coûteux.

    We were searching for a great Indian restaurant to celebrate my wife's birthday. Ever since we discovered our favourite Indian restaurant in Spain, we have had a hard time finding something that lived up to our expectations. After a couple of tries in various cities, we decided to try Ghandi in old Montreal. First, we were looking for an old city experience and were thrilled to find out that there were a couple of decent Indian places. We chose Gandhi based on reviews. And...we were not dissapointed. The food was amazing. Finally, I had written in the invitation that it was my wife's birthday and they brought a cake without me asking. We have found our place for Indian in Montreal.

    This was a wonderful break from French cuisine in the old port neighborhood. The food was very good - try the peshwari nan and gobi. Be aware that what may be described as somewhat spicy on the menu may be hot, hot to you or your fellow diners. But the wait staff was very attentive and kept our water glasses filled.

    Gandhi has been my favourite restaurant for more than 10 years. The sheer quality of the plates they offer is constantly the best in Montréal. I've invited quite a few people over the years, and for first timers, I highly recommend the Korma chicken, butter chicken or tandoori chicken. They never dissapoint! As for the service, they are a very professionnal and dedicated staff. They really live up tp the restaurant's reputation. All in all, Gandhi will probably keep besting all the new restaurants I will try. They have mastered every aspect of what makes an excellent night out. For any Indian cuisine lover, it is a must-try!

    This was our second visit to Gandhi and we enjoyed it as much as the first. The service was top notch, with no beat missed. My husband had a vindaloo, which was hot but not so hot as to challenge his happiness. I had a birani. I usually have birani at Indian restaurants and the only other I've found that prepares it like Gandhi was in Edinburgh, Scotland; rice medley with sauce with the main ingredient (for me, chicken) alongside. We arrived at 7:00 to a fairly quiet place which perked up considerably about 8:00.
