Services were very busy so service was not the best (did not offer to fill up water, take order, etc)

We had such a disappointing time here. I had called to request a spot on their patio, the server said no problem, and showed up to find out the patio was nonexistent — we sat inside, but with COVID they should really be more transparent with their reservations if they won't have outdoor space available.

The restaurant was wildly understaffed, which is so unfair to the one waitress working. She was so overwhelmed and clearly trying to do her best, but it was painful to watch. We waited 20 minutes to be offered a drink only to find out they weren't serving cocktails. I asked for a glass of wine and the server said she knows nothing about wine and to "go to the bar and pick a bottle." We ended up asking for beer instead, all they had was a cheap Asian lager that they still charged the same amount for as their craft beer ($9), which they were out of. The crispy shrimp appetizer was a stand out, but the chicken korma was so oily, the saag paneer was bitter, the saffron rice was stale and the roti was dry. We were out celebrating a birthday and weren't offered dessert. Instead, while we sat to finish our drinks, the server asked us to settle up as people were waiting outside to get in. What's the point of a reservation? I didn't even get to finish my expensively cheap lager. Not at all worth the money. I left embarrassed for having taken my partner here for his birthday dinner.

Fantastic food. The server was lovely, but blamed the 1.5 hour delay on the kitchen prioritizing take out over dine in customers. That’s outrageous, especially for a pretty pricey place. But really, the food was spectacular.

It had been a couple of years since I’d last eaten at an Indian restaurant and I was very much looking forward to it!
Last Train to Delhi was definitely worth the wait. The fun started with our waitress, who was very knowledgeable and enthusiastic about the menu. The wine list is short but quality-oriented. I ordered a cocktail called Shere Khan which was earthy/spicy/whiskey yummy. The crispy shrimp were outstanding with spicy fried potato “vermicelli” wrapped around them!
The Butter Chicken lives up to its reputation: absolutely mouthwatering and enough for a takeaway snack next day. Wish we lived closer 😏

Notre seconde visite chez Last Train to Delhi, et certainement pas la dernière.
Les plats sont des versions contemporaines des classiques avec à chaque fois une interprétation originale et des composants inattendus (ils appellent ça "progressive" en angliche). Tout est délicieux, et plusieurs choix sont végétariens ou végétaliens.
Nos préférés : les onion bhaji version "onion ring", et le kofta curry -- il faut goûter pour le croire. Mais tout est bon, de toute façon, on ne peut pas se tromper. Pour ne rien gâcher, bon choix de vins au verre, comprenant des vins locaux (Niagara et PEC) lors de notre visite.
Le service est classe mais cool, l'hospitalité canadienne (anglo) à son meilleur. Tables très aérées et éloignées, ce qui est bien apprécié en ces temps de covid. Les autres convives semblaient être des habitués ou des amis, ce qui est toujours bon signe.

Restaurant wasn't busy yet took 20 min to get the menu and had to ask for it. The couple seated in front of us got much better service than we did, very strange... Has never happened before at any other restaurant. Pretty pricey food.

I’d had a delicious meal at this restaurant in the past and was excited to bring out of town guests. I reserved well in advance to ensure we had a table. Unfortunately the experience was very disappointing. Staff were trying hard but the facility seemed unprepared for either the volume of takeout orders or the combination of takeout orders and dine in guests. We were over an hour before our drink order taken, despite the waitress coming to take our order and then leaving abruptly to seat another table, promising to return and give us her undivided attention but getting distracted and coming back 25 minutes later.
We tried to place our drink order but my guest’s request was out of stock, that happens so she order the next closest beer, to have the waitress return 10 minutes later to say it was out of stock too. My guest declined a third choice.
Much later, we ordered our dinner, we were now famished. The waitress returned to say they only had enough shrimp to give us one order, explaining the takeout orders that were placed before out eat in order, had to be filled first. This was frustrating as we’d been waiting now over an hour and 45 minutes to get food. Our waitress seemed frustrated and offered us a complimentary dessert, which was nice, but it occurred to us that we would have had our first food choice and a better evening if we’d ordered takeout closer to our arrival time.
As expected the, the food was delicious but we were so hungry we inhaled it instead of savouring the food. We ordered our desserts to go.
I don’t fault the staff, they were clearly working very hard but possibly trying to deal with too much. Additionally, running out of certain foods and 50% of your beer options demonstrates poor planning, unless it was an unusually heavy night, but a Friday night in September should be predictable.
At this point, I’d recommend them for takeout, but not dine in.

The food is delicious! You can taste the freshness of the ingredients and the love that goes into making it. I had the crispy shrimp, lamb chops and gobi matter - recommend all three dishes!

I had a 6pm reservation and the service was top notch until they got really busy with takeout orders as well as later reservations. Not sure if this is a one off, as this was my first visit. Perhaps dine early, or prepare to not be in a hurry...the food is worth the wait and will have you wanting to return for more.

First time trying out this Indian restaurant in Ottawa. Found ourselves a new awesome dining spot.

The food was very authentic, loved the lamb dish and the korma. We did not order an appetizer.

The place is very clean and nicely decorated, perfect for celebrating a formal occasion. The service was also great!

I love Indian food but I usually suffer later with digestive problems - not so with the food at Last Train to Delhi. I don't know whether it is the fact that pretty much everything is made in-house or the kind of oil they use or the quantity, but at this restaurant, I can indulge my appetite for korma and curry and rogan josh and all the delicious appetizers with no ill effects whatsoever. Last Train to Delhi is now my go-to place when I crave Indian food.

The Citizen review implied that one could request a lower level of heat(spiciest) in a dish. This why we went there as we do not like things too spicy. As it turned out that was not the case the spiciness in a dish could not be reduced. Most of the menu were quite spicy dishes, one was not. This is what I had, it was okay but quite bland. In other words one or the other, nothing in between. I was given some Chili sauce which I added and it gave it a little kick but tolerable. Also ordered onion Bahji which turned out to be very spicy, the waiter knowing this was a concern should have mentioned it. These are not spicy in most Indian restaurants around here. Nice restaurant but we will not return unless more varied choices are offered.

Amazing food... this isn’t your run of the mill Indian Food. Each dish’s flavours are perfectly nuanced. Normally I order dal as a key side, but their dal was the stand out star of the dishes we ordered. Must try!

Excellent food. 4 dishes plus rice were enough for 4 people. The service was great, attentive, not intrusive. The desserts that we tried were heavenly. Good ambience. We found parking for a 6:15 seating. If you want to stay longer than 2 hours, let them know when you reserve - as tables are booked for an 8:30 seating.

The restaurant is small which is great as far as I'm concerned. However it does make for a less than quiet ambiance. The bright lights also doesn't create a relaxing experience. The service and food are excellent. Our server (also co-owner) was very helpful and knowledgeable. The food is fresh and very flavourful. Would recommend absolutely. Hope they dim the lights next time...

One of the best new restaurants in Ottawa. Very nice atmosphere, the food was amazing! All of it was tied perfectly together by our server - I actually wrote her name down for this exact moment but can't find it. She was a dream. Very knowledgeable about the food and drinks. She made our visit perfect.
I have been in the restaurant business for over 25 years and this place has really made an impression on me.
Thanks to the team at "Last train to Delhi"
