Went here because we love indian food. Can confirm that there are rats in this place, we moved tables because there were rats above us in the ceiling... we should have just walked out. I was the only one of our party to even remotely enjoy my food, one half of the people in our group had significant stomach illness... More

This place is beautiful and cozy. The service is good. The food takes you to India. It's yummy especially the nan bread. I like going back to this place to try different dishes. I recommend it. BTW, the menu of the restaurant is on the website address. I hope you like it !

For Indian food cravings you should try this restaurant. The Service is poor but the food is nice. Good food for the price you pay there.

You can't crave for Indian food more than any other place but China! And to add to that...there aren't many, infact only this 1 which we could find when we started craving for Daal-Rice! It located prime on commercial Huaihai Raod. We tracked this restaurant online and called the owner and he was courteous enough to guide us to reach... More

My girlfriend and I heard about the all you can eat buffet so we decided to give it a try.

I ate there yesterday. July 6th 2014. Food was OK, service was TERRIBLE.. But just when I finished eating and was waiting for dessert I heard rat sounds.. I looked up to the ceiling that's open and painted black.. I just saw at least 3 rats. They were just not even afraid of our presence, what makes me think they... More
