The food is great but too pricey

Though they specialize in Indian cuisine, their menu features sections with Mexican, Italian and American food. They prepare each cuisine very well but just know that it all has an Indian accent to it. I think it works really well and creates some great flavor combinations. Also know that it is... read more

Every experience I've had here has been entirely positive. The food is delicious - SO flavorful and unique - and the wait staff has always been smiley and helpful. The decor is minimal and plain but everything is clean. I absolutely loved coming here when I lived in Chicago even though it was a 25-minute drive. Totally worth it. I... More

I saw on the way and stopped with wife and kid as we were too hungry and vegetarians. We had high expectations from the restaurant as there are very few Indian veg restaurants. We weren't welcomed by any person, after going inside. After a min, a lady sitting on a customers table, lifted her head and said sit any where... More

As a 20-year vegetarian, I'm hesitant to give a below average review to a vegetarian restaurant. But I'm even more hesitant to let vegetarians go into a restaurant without a warning that they may be disappointed. The food and atmosphere of the restaurant is less than mediocre. A microwaved frozen meal would have been equally as good to me. The... More

First, this is a vegetarian restaurant with food made to order. Be patient. Second, try one of the made to order juices. Third, no matter what else you order, try the Indian Nachos but be careful they're spicy! 4. Enjoy!

I was very impressed with the menu and with the food however the service was very slow. We were there on a Saturday evening and the place was full however it looked like maybe 3 people were working ?! Being vegan I have to say I was thrilled to find the place and to enjoy the meal!

Good food but felt it wasn't great value. We felt the bill was expensive for what we ordered. Great place if you're a strict vegetarian.

At first look I was shocked at the prices. I got carried away by ambiance so still went ahead &ordered a carry out curry. It tasted like uncooked canned tomato paste. It was absolutely terrible. Would never go back.

I love this place. I am Vegan, gluten, corn & soy free and this menu had SO much for me. My waitress was so sweet and friendly. I can't remember the name of what I ate, but it was like a Middle Eastern pizza. It was so delicious. I really probably should have eaten only half, but just couldn't stop... More
