When walking by, I noticed this Indian restaurant. Since I'm a Indian flavors addicted, I've decided to have dinner. With a super friendly staff that try to learn your name and call you by it, you definitely going to have a pleasant evening. The dishes are good, and worth a visit even if is just to remember how good is... More

Nice staff, food lacking in taste and very expensive. Asked if we wanted mild medium or spicy so went for medium, to say it was bland and tasteless was and understatement . The waiter was very friendly but to the point of annoying when you are trying to chat and eat.

We ate here tonight for the first time and we couldn't ask for more. Our waiter Taj was extremely attentive getting to know each of our names and chatted like we were old friends. The food was excellent and we will definitely be dining here again

It seems ironic that just last year I gave this place 5 star rating and now I'm giving it a 1... What the hell happened in this last year? I don't know if the cook they lost the chef or if the owners changed, but this place went down hill. The food took a lot of time to arrive even... More
