Nous avons demandé une table sur la terrasse, c'était une belle soirée d'été. Les employés étaient courtois & attentionnés. La nourriture était excellente. Nous y retournerons. Quel bon repas & quelle belle soirée sur la rue Crescent.
The restaurant is nice & situated on crescent . We recommend the garlic bread . & we tried the chicken Masala which was spicy but not much & we also tried the chicken Chettinad . Nice enjoyable dishes but the only thing is it is expensive compared to what you are given . Each Chicken dish has about 7-8 medium chicken piece for about 20$ a plate with no rice or anything - those you would need to order on the side
Overall : a nice experience
Nous avions un des meilleurs restaurant sous le nez & pourtant, apres un drink sur crescent nous ne prenions jamais le temps de s'y arreter.....qu'elle belle decouverte!!! Plutot que de se nourrir d'habitudes,nous avons simplement traversé la rue....9h45, nous sommes recus par un serveur tres charmant...malgré l'heure tardive la cuisine est toujours ouverte & son sourire toujours present..nous avons ete agreablement surpris & y retournons ce midi!!
I recently visited Devi restaurant with some friends on a Friday night. I was excited to eat at Devi, since I have been to their restaurant in New York & had an exquisite meal. Unfortunately I cannot say the same for the Montreal restaurant on Crescent. First, the Navratan korma was bland & watery (had to send it back), when it came back it seemed to have been warmed up, not re made! The paneer Tikka was also very bland & dry. The butter chicken was average, but definitely not worth the price tag. The ambiance is nice, but if you really don’t enjoy the food, there isn’t much else you can enjoy. There are a few other Indian restaurants I would pick over this one in downtown Montreal, or even the plateau area. 5/10
Very disappointing !! Food was inconsistent & poorly presented. Imagine "greasy" tandoori chicken ( I later discovered that the tandoori oven is not a real one & is gas-fired). The prices are only in line with the location (Crescent St !!) & have nothing to do with the quality or quantitiy of the food. The sheek kabab was cold & undercooked; we returned it to the kitchen. The raita ( yogurt) was watery & had no cucumbers.The best dish was dessert- warm gulab jumin.
The tables are plain wood without tablecloths or place mats---not right for a so-called upscale resto.
I would never return to this resto!!-- there are plenty of much better Indian restos in Montreal & at a much fairer price.
Une cuisine tout en saveur & en nuance.
Les mélanges d'épices sont d'une subtils & délicats, une découverte à chaque bouchée (essayez le plat de légumes grillés en entrée).
Les portions sont généreuses pour un bon rapport quqlité/prix.
Un petit bémol quand même: Aucun serveur ou serveuse n'ont été capable de me répondre en français, & n'ont même pas fait d'effort pour essayer de comprendre. Je sais que l'on est sur Crescent, mais ce n'est pas une excuse.
Un GROS effort est à faire de ce côté.
Un excellent restaurant indien à Montréal.
Devi is an upscale Indian-cuisine restaurant that succeeds because of its great location (right in the middle of downtown Crescent St.) & its enjoyable food menu.
The grilled vegetable platter is a perfect blend of bbq & veggies (with tangy pineapple pieces mixed in!) The shammi kababs are delicious; cooked exactly like a homemade dish - the meat is soft, melting in your mouth & the surprise mozarella center gives it a uniquely tasty spin.
The other meat dishes are slightly over-salted, but the portions are great for two/tree people to share.
The atmosphere is chic, with dimly-lit lights all around the main floor. The young servers are helpful & give you enough time to choose your meal among so many mouth-watering choices.
The prices are considerably higher compared to other smaller Indian restaurants around town, but Devi is a great place to bring clients & a well-deserving way to treat yourself! Enjoy!
You must try this culinary delight that has great ambiance, surprising & tasty food & great location. The exotic atmosphere will transport you into the Asian realm. Dishes like ""Hariyali, fried fish, Achari Paneer Tikka, Manchurian & Tikka Masalla" will take you into a new realm of fine Indian dining but there is also the regular fare. The location on Crescent cannot go wrong for the party goer.
With a wealth of reputation in India & New York, I am sure Montreal will be enriched with the rich Indian tradition of great food & entertainment. Both my trips convinced me that it is an oasis worth our try to satiate our palates for food & a drink.
With thematic parties in the offing soon, I look forward to the atmosphere, entertainment & culinary surprises that this amazing new restaurant has to offe
