We are looking for a good Indian restaurant in the downtown area. We are coming for the Grand Prix weekend and would like to have a late, leisurely dinner. Any suggestion? Thanks!

    I havent tried either but I hear Atma on St Laurent and Ghandi on St Paul are both excellent.

      Dev on Crescent street will suit your needs.

        Cresent street will be anything but leisurely during the Grand Prix. I would suggest Curry House, on Mackay, below Ste Catherine.

          I meant Devi on Crescent street:

          I don't remember if they have a terasse, but if they sit indoors, I don't see why they couldn't have a leisurely meal.

            hungryann, have you ever been on Crescent during GP weekend? (That's a purely rhetorical question, btw.)

            davekry is right, crescent does NOT = leisurely (or relaxing, de-compressing, quiet, serene, etc.) at that time, or, to lesser degrees, pretty much any other weekend until the dog days of mid/late August.

              And to add to what you say. The Crescent restaurants would probably jack up their prices for Grand Prix weekend.

              That was my suggestion, feel free to contribute your own.

          Taj on Stanley is a great Indian Restaurant

            I could not disagree more about Taj. As for suggestions, take the metro or bus out to Jean Talon and hit up Indian Curry House or Bombay Mahal. I know it's not downtown, but the short trip IS worth it.

            Thanks so much for your recommendations. This gives us a couple of good options-now hopefully we'll be able to get a table! Cheers!
