It's great having an Indian restaurant next door since my mom's cooking is so far away. The food is very well prepared and manages to make savory food without all the oil one would ordinarily find elsewhere. Order the crispy spinach appetizer - it's baked, not fried - it's delicious and full of flavor! Van Neas is a rather quiet... More

This is a tough review. If I was just rating the food, very close to 4 stars. Vindaloo was top notch - very tasty, just the right spice mixture, 5 stars (better than all but 2 others I have had in the world).

The restaurant is stylish in an old world way with plush upholstered banquettes and a large crystal chandelier. White tablecloths set a formal... More

This is a wonderful and unique Indian restaurant. Raj (the owner's) food philosophy is to apply ayurvedic principles to the food preparation. Yogurt is used in place of cream, olive oil in place of ghee, and rose syrup or pureed dates in place of sugar (depending on the dish) - and the dishes taste marvellous. All dishes are made to...
