Thanjai Restaurant in Montreal makes 6 foot Dosa !

Thanjai is an authentic South Indian Restaurant which serves vegetarian and non-vegetarian food with separate kitchen concept. We specialize in creating the true flavors of South Indian recipes that are familiar to all who grew up with these dishes.. We offer a rich blend of flavors, colours, seasoning, health values, aroma, tastes and the visual appeals of this unique cuisine. And.. we are alone in the area in offering you this taste experience.

Apart from South India's ** rich cultural past, it reminds us that these unique tastes are most savored by one and all and are always a treat for our taste buds. From its' humble inception, Thanjai has grown into the lavish success story that it has become today. Originally being a "take-out joint" and then adding 10 seats to "eat-in", it has now evolved into the present location and capacity of seating.

We had realized that our customers could not come with their family to taste our many delicacies served hot. We did not believe in resting our laurels, so we reinvented ourselves, found our current location where we offer unrivaled quality and taste many customers in a much larger venue.

We now have 70 seats capacity and an 80 to 100 seats hall facility for private parties, business meetings and receptions. We strive in bringing to our beloved customers the best authentic flavours of South Indian kitchens, without compromising quality, taste or health benefits.

We reaffirm to our many customers that we are committed in keeping the prices reasonable and affordable with high quality authentic food. We encourage your valuable feedback and continued support. Please provide us your feedback at our website,
