Four of us ate here Saturday evening for dinner. Parker was an excellent server and was very patient while we tried to settle on what we wanted. I had the Pad Thai and ordered it extra spicy. It was an incredible dish and was served very differently than I have had it before. Everyone tried mine and all said it... More

Typically always order a curry dish, Butter chicken is generally the best in southern NB; a modern take on a classic with wonderful chunks of chicken in a spicy but smooth butter curry. Generally always order take-out, last order was slightly off... the chicken pieces seemed grisly while the actual sauce seemed more spicy and less flavourful than normal. Hoping... More

The Indian food was amazing, but the cheesecake was out of this world! I have had a lot of cheesecake in my life and have never tasted anything like it!

You 'have' to order the Butter Chicken - so authentic and the Basmati rice is done just perfect! Also try Ken's Combo - (General Tao Chicken, Pork Skewers and a mix of fresh vegetables all in a scrumptious sauce and served with rice - so yummy) Great selections and authentic food here. You won't be disappointed!

One of the best places to eat in Saint John if your on a date, celebrating an anniversary or have a little extra money for a good meal and a bottle of wine. As a married man with 3 kids, I don't have any extra money or time, but the wife and I really enjoy spending a little extra to... More

The food here is always amazing!! Everything I have had there did not disappoint. If you don't like Indian or Thai food they also have a nice selection of Canadian foods. The restaurant is beautiful, great atmosphere and decor. One of my favourites for sure!

One of the best Indian restaurants to dine in. If you've decided to make a road trip from Boston to Halifax Novascotia, Saint John is an ideal stop over town. Quaint, yet modern Saint John offers excellent vistas, restaurants and a beautiful downtown. And if hungry, can't find a better place than Thandi. Excellent food, ambiance and waiting staff.

Had dinner at the bar after work. The Pad Thai was very good, actually some of the best I've ever had. Good selection of local beers. Atmosphere was friendly and service was excellent. It got busy early on the Thursday evening. Don't miss whenever you are in Saint John.
