Best Indian restaurants in Montreal?

Ive been told several times,
maison indian curry. Cheap, small, great. On jean talon.

Kam Shing any good?

Kam Shing is amazing!
I think your talking about on the places cote des neiges.
There was Kam Shing,a little place with a red logo next to harveys, AND there was also Maison Kam with those big round tables and dragon decor on the walls.
Kam Shing in now a big hit and moved across the street into the cote-des-neiges mall, and sadly, Maison Kam closed and is now Kim Phat (asian grocery store).
hope that helps!
Kam Shing: best for general tao chicken, cantonese fired noodles, house fried rice, and won ton soup is great too.

Anyone have good tips on ingredients, or even better, a recipe on Portuguese cornbread?
I had it for the first time and it was amazing! A nice very dark non hard crust with light white wonderfulness inside.

Healthiest tea?

I am a huge tea drinker, but I am wondering what is the healthiest to have? What is the best green tea?
I sometimes drink loose oolong tea that I get under 10$ in china town and gunpowder green tea. I like to have teas that help digest big meals.

Any suggestions/tips/advice?

restaurant for a day time bachelorette party?

well, it looks like it might be a group of around 10-15 max. It would be during the day time and it will be in june. I would say 20$ a person would be reasonable.
One girl is kosher.. so if there are kosher places, thats awesome, but if you have some great non-kosher suggestions, do tell! We dont care for it being fancy, just somewhere comfortable for a bunch of girls to be girly.

restaurant for a day time bachelorette party?

I want to throw a bachlorette party for the bride to be during the afternoon somewhere not to far from or in downtown.
nothing too expensive... and even some kosher suggestions would be awesome!
