My favourite restaurant in Montreal hands down.
If you go and don't like it, it's because you're not ordering the right thing. My boyfriend and I have gone every 6-8 weeks for the last 4 years and we have tried a variety of dishes, but now, we always order exactly the same thing.
Chana Samosa - crunchy, spicy, saucy.
Baingan Bharta - velvety pureed eggplant with a kick
Chicken Korma - creamy dreamy yogurt-y sauce with tender chicken.
garlic naan - amazing to dip in the bharta and korma.
Buy yourself a bottle of wine, grab a friend, and try the above mentioned menu next time, (all for about $35).

Just went for the bajillionth time (okay, it was actually the quintillionth if it's specificity you're after) on Saturday night and I still adore this place. Maybe it's the fact that I have a perennial soft spot for Bring Your Own Wine restaurants. Maybe it's the fact that their food is absolutely delicious, fresh and rather inexpensive. Maybe it's the fact that I get my eyebrows done at Dee's across the street and Bombay Mahal is great comfort food when my entire forehead is throbbing in pain. Whatever it is, I keep going back.
My favourite dishes include the palak paneer, which has a brilliant, strong flavour to the spinach, the creamy lamb korma and the vada sambar, which I had for the first time the other night but will definitely be ordering as an appetizer in the future. Their garlic nan is also a treat!
If you're heading there for lunch, they have a $5 veg thali that is not only to die for, but surprisingly filling despite appearances. I definitely looked at it with uncertainty when it first arrived, thinking I might have to order an extra side, but I soon discovered it was more than enough.
On Friday and Saturday nights, it does tend to fill up, so you'll want to head over with about ten-to-fifteen minutes to spare. Besides that, the service is quick and friendly and it's a great place for a casual BYOW meal.

I go there from times to times. Their lentil sauce is well executed: enjoyably seasoned and very tasty. Kudos for their Aloo Gobi veggy dish: simple cauliflower/potatoes nicely spiced dish that's all savory. The butter chicken I had there (had it twice by now) was of of utter tenderness and had been savourish on both occasions. Definitely a nice good simple and yet well executed table.
