The food is the best Indian cuisine I have had and I have had a lot of Indian. The atmosphere and décor is beautiful. The service attentive. This is the place we take friends and visitors for a very nice and memorable evening.

Excellent Indian restaurant but expensive for casual dinning. Great for prestigious dinning and not for kids.
