We were running a little late for our end of evening reservation. The restaurant called to be sure we were coming and they were very welcoming to our late group. They kept the kitchen open long enough to be certain we got our dinner. The food was wonderful and although the staff was ending their shift, they were patient and professional. Thank you for making our trip to Montreal just a little better!

Cant say enough about the experiance at Chez Devi. The room is. Beautifully appointed and the seating is comfortable. The wait staff was friendly and attentive. But oh my THE FOOD was heavenly
Real fresh Indian flavors
Where we live Indian food is sometimes good but never great. At Chez Devi every dish we had was over the top delishious. Even our white rice had a fragrant cardamom seed on top.
The prices were fair and the portions were plentiful.
A great experiance over all!

Much quieter inside than outside! A little bit dark at the beginning, but fresh and cozy. The food is delicious, service efficient. La demoiselle s’est forcée pour nous parler en français, très apprécié.

My wife and I always enjoy going to Devi when we’re in Montreal. Food is always great. Service was a little slow due to a large party ahead of us.

Would definitely recommend.

Restaurant was practically empty, but waitress seemed in a rush to clear our table before my wife was finished eating. The butter chicken was not as good as previous time; why did they change the recipe.

This restaurant was a great find - in fact I have no idea how I've missed it all these years! They had a lunch buffet but we opted to share a few plates instead - delicious! And the staff was so friendly. A definite gem - if you love Indian food you have to eat here!

Came here on my wedding anniversary which happens to coincide with Saint Patty’s day. I’ve been to some Indian restaurants in Montreal before and the quality is typically average compared to what you can find in Toronto, New York or Chicago.

However , this restaurant was one of the better Indian options in Montreal. Portions were decent size and while it’s a tad bit pricey, it’s in line with what you’d expect at a fine dining establishmen

Only things I didn’t care for was that the service was just OK, examples include the waiter bringing out the food in the wrong order and then not bringing out any silverware ... to eat with until we asked for it. Normally it could happen anywhere but given it we were there at 3pm when it was slow, I expected better service

Noise level was higher but then I would attribute that to the bar across the street and the occasion of st. Patty’s day.. so can’t really hold that against them.

I would give this place a shot again when in Montreal next time

Our waiter , Mike was amazing and attentive at all times. Provided great insight on the food and other conversational topics during our dining stay.
The food was very good and tasty. The only gripe I personally have is that the spices aren't too powerful, if you like your food spicy, you may be mildly disappointed .

This is our second visit to this restaurant. Our first occurred last year, while visiting Montreal for the first time.
The restaurant is located on the the wonderfully energized Rue Crescent.
We sat at a table for two, looking out on to the street.
The dishes were prepared just as we like (spiced hot) and authentic.
Our server was attentive, and very pleasant.

The service was friendly and attentive. But unfortunately, the food was disappointing. The curry was bland and more like a local gravy than an Indian specialty. The tandoori was also unusual and more like a family baked chicken than what I’ve grown to love at Indian restaurants. My first clue should have been that only one patron was in the place when I showed up.

The final hassle was that even though they had an OpenTable sticker on the door, they couldn’t get the system to work.

Très belle expérience un samedi soir, souper en tête-à-tête. Très bon service, en français. Le serveur a su bien nous expliquer le menu et nous aider à faire nos choix. Il n'y a pas de menu dégustation, ce que le proprio devrait penser à ajouter comme option puisqu'il y a plein de choses que nous aurions voulu essayer au menu. Nous avons donc opté pour la table d'hôte pour 2 (2 entrées + 2 plats principaux + 2 desserts) que nous avons partagée. Tout était très bon. Épicé mais pas piquant. Le pain naan est tout simplement exquis.

I would recommend it as a date as well. They have a buffet till 3 daily. I went for a dinner. I did the course for 2 and it was a perfect amount. The desserts are.. ehh, but it’s definitely not a reason to not visit this great spot. It’s decor is indescribably beautiful. You can see it on my Instagram at RoseLinings. Bon appétit :)

Food overall good. Service, while friendly and efficient was slow even though the restaurant was not full. Apparently the kitchen was overloaded with takeout orders. Not a great reason for making onsite customers wait.
