First, this restaurant doesn't serve alcohol so you can bring your own wine. It can be very crowded by night but it's worth the visit. We've been there a few times and each time, it was very good. Prices are good. You can chose more...More

Honestly the best Indian food I've had in the Western Hemisphere. Every single dish we got was delicious. Not dumbed down or overly sweet. The butter chicken stole the show with its delicately seasoned buttery flavour and its tender breast meat. We also had chicken...More

I went to a lot of Indian restaurant in Montreal, this one is my favorite (and Indian’s Oven in second). Like almost every Indian restaurant the decor and the service is so-so. It’s a 'Bring your own wine policy'. After 18:00 expect a line-up because...More

I'm guessing you're asking if you can bring your own wine? If so, then yes. You can bring wine or beer.
Is there a lunch buffet special on Saturdays...?
