If you are staying in the Old Town area and want some very good Indian food this is a great choice. Beside having very good food one thing I do appreciate is that the waiters work as a team and the person who took your order may not be the same person who brings your meal. The meals we had were great. The only fail was when we ordered a bottle of wine and were handed a bottle the size of a Coke bottle. That was a big turnoff and they should provide normal size bottles. What we ordered was not an expensive wine.

The night started by my wife and I waiting 20 minutes after we were seated until finally I found a server.
We asked our waiter to put together some special dishes (later found out it was one of the combos).
Honestly if this is a top end Indian restaurant, I am sorry but Montreal has a long way to go.
The food needed salt and lacked flavour. Even the nan bread was thick and doughy.
If you are used to good Indian food, this will disappoint.

We had the vegetarian dinner for two, with wonderful sag paneer, mattar aloo, biryani with vegetables, and naan kulcha. Everything was very fresh tasting without the heavy cream sometimes found in some of these dishes. The finishing touch was an artistically presented dish of coconut cake, rice pudding & gulab jamun, served with mango and strawberry sauces and sprinkled with cocoa. Location is on a quiet street in old Montreal, a few blocks south of the Palais des Congres. The staff was friendly and we had good service. Staff said that the management takes pride in using very freshest vegetables and meats. We have sampled Indian restaurants in Europe, Asia, the US and Canada-- overall we rate this right up there with the best of the ones we have visited.

Good Indian food is surprisingly hard to find.

At Ghandi they know what they're doing. Best : tandoori shrimp, mango pistachio ice cream and the best, hottest vindaloo we've ever had.

They were out of the Chilean Rose wine we asked for but came with a fairly priced Argentinian substitute.

We got there late after what had apparently been a busy night but the service was still energetic.

Recommended.

Discovered Gandhi accidentally while walking around Old Montreal and what a find!

This is not fast food, so be prepared to wait. Everything about the menu is well done, down to the rice and naan. The best part of the menu is that they describe the different sauces so that you can choose how your like your meat or vegetable prepared.

The wine list is also good and fairly priced.

Best of all, the staff is friendly and helpful. When it's really busy, they are not fast, but the wait is always worth it.
