“..there's comfort food and there are comfort movies. In Lasse Hallstrom's "The Hundred-Foot Journey," you get a full helping of both. And guess what? It's all very comforting..”
by Randy Cordova [Arizona Republic]
3.5 of 5

“..there are no surprises - nothing off the menu - in this tasty and tasteful feel-good dramedy about clashing cultures and cuisines, but fans of "The Best Exotic Marigold Hotel" will no doubt find it palatable..”
by Bruce Ingram [Chicago Sun-Times]
2.5 of 4

“..the result is light and tasty, just not as special as it could have been..”
by Claudia Puig [USA Today]

“..the movie is at times too sentimental and the storyline is neither original nor surprising, but the production as a whole gains points for its unalloyed charm. This is one dish that has been cooked well enough to satisfy..”
by James Berardinelli [ReelViews]
2.5 of 4

“..from the director of "Chocolat" comes this crowd-pleasing souffle. Mirren's icy matriarch is terrific, even if the rest is mostly air..”
by Rafer Guzman [Newsday]
