Same old food same old taste, no innovation. Same menu for many years. Masala tastes the same as if it has been recycled from preprepared.

I am a big fan of Open House, whether for a sit down meal or take away. You will not be blown away with the decor/ambiance (average), but the food and service are excellent. What more could you want?

Great service, nice ambience, delicious food, and the kids like it too. Whenever we want to treat ourselves to something special , we go to Open House. It does close in the mid afternoon so be sure they are open if you go at an unusual time

I have eaten at the Open House restaurant 3 times over the last few years and have always enjoyed my meal there. While it is a little more expensive than some other indian places, it's not too dear and the food quality and flavour is excellent. The service is great and the wait staff know what they are doing.
