I was driving on Devon and stopped to get some food to take home. As soon as i walked in the door, the first thing i was asked was if i was looking for a job, which i did not like at all. Then the guy who took my order seemed to be a racist, the whole time talking bad about other people,fist about Hispanics, then when i said i was Mexican he talked about other races. I ordered the chicken makhani and the lamb dingsi, both had very good flavor, but the portions were extremely small for the price. I mean their food cost most be 10% serving those portions. I'm a professional chef so i know what i'm talking about. I don't know if the portions were that small because that was the only container size they had, but it was bad . I also ordered i side of rice and naan, naan was good, the rice was not in the bag. so it was a terrible experience for me. won't ever go back, there are better Indian restaurants on Devon.

Cons: portions are way too small for the price

I've been to several Indian restaurants in different cities and I have to say that the Indian Garden is one of the best! I love that they have an extensive menu selection. I can bring my vegetarian friends along with my non vegetarian friends and can be assured that we'll all have some dish or drink that we'll enjoy over long talks and leisurely indian teas. oh, and their Chicken Massala is a must-have! Definitely one of my faves and I'll be sure to order this next time I come for a long pleasant lunch.

Pros: best indian food in town

Cons: traffic

Great food. Good waiting stuff, no more attention then needed. Good place to go if you in the area. But I hate to spend that much.

I tried Indian food for the first time and it was really good. I think people should try this place and it is really nice inside. I recommend this place to anyone.

I have traveled around the country and have been a great fan of the Indian cuisine, I have tried the food at the Indian Garden and was greatly disappointed. The food has no flavor just full of cream and a bland taste and the servers were pushy and very aggressive. If you want a good meal without people hassling you please don't try this place.

The tasteful decor, the excellent service, and especially the FOOD make Indian Garden one of my favorite restaurants for a long, conversational lunch or a romantic dinner. The samosas are the best anywhere, and every dish I've ever tried has become my favorite. It might be difficult to choose between the many restaurants on Devon, but Indian Garden stands out for its friendliness, consistency, and quality.

This place had gone downhill under the old owners. However, new ownership took over in September of 2007. And what a difference they're making.
The new owner, Maria, had been the longtime manager of the Indian Garden on Ontario (downtown). She and Alex (bartender/manager) have worked hard to make this the place to stop on Devon. We've been there 4 times since the new ownership has taken over and it gets better every time. Give Maria and Alex a couple more months and this will be the place to stop on Devon.

Editorial from

One of the best-looking Indian restaurants on the Devon Avenue strip also has one of the biggest (and most reliably enjoyable) menus. Specialties cooked in a kadhai (iron wok) and on a tawa (griddle-like iron plate) help show off the rangeā€¦
