This Indian restaurant has been located on Somerled for many years. Ambiance is ok but service is good and food is delish. They even ask how spicy you would like your dish. We had the lunch Thali special with the lamb and the butter chicken. Their sauces were rich and tasty as their seasoning flavourful. Naan bread arrived warm and... More

Poor Indian food, pre-made and heated when you order. Cheap and nasty. With so many good Indian restaurants in NDG why would anyone choose to eat this food.

The food is delicious here and the naan bread is warm and fresh. They are flexible at making substitutions for the combo meals. The downside is that there is quite a difference in the lunch menu and the supper menu prices for the same meal. The ambiance is not great, but not The worst. The food is worth the visit.

Good food. A bit spicy even if you ask not spicy at all. I agree that Indian food is always spicy, but you're told they can make no spicy, you expect something not spicy.. But that's ok, it was not a big deal. Daddy ate all the food !!! Service is great, people is nice.

Ok so here's the deal with Express Indien... the atmosphere isn't great, the service can be slow at times. The food itself is above average for *Montreal* Indian cuisine, meaning I find Montreal really lacks great Indian restaurants. In most other cities, this food would be just average *at best*. The dishes are prepared well, not too salty or too... More

I used to know this restaurant as Yagel Bagel Deli. Then one day it changed! It was turned into a fabulous restaurant. Small and quaint. The food is awesome. Some of the best Indian food around. The owners hadn't changed from the deli to the restaurant, so I was a bit curious as to the food quality. Boy was I... More

I ordered from here yesterday, I ordered a combo for 2 people and an extra meat dish. When the food arrived I immediately called the restaurant and explained I got some food which I didn't order but not the foods which I did. Off course the dishes missing were the expensive once, Tandoori chicken and Beef Bhuna. Instead I got... More

My craving for authentic Indian food was fulfilled today. This small wonderful gem of a restaurant, in an unexpected neighbourhood was a real find. We were greeted warmly from the moment we stepped in. We were asked if we wanted the lunch menu (served until 2pm - even on a Saturday!) or the full menu. We took a look at... More
