Superb Indian meals - good value - cooked to order

Have now visited multiple times. Always excellent, sometimes slow because cooked to order but well worth the wait. Go 5,6,or 7(hot) Lamb Korma, Chicken Makhani great!

Fully enjoy this restaurant and have been their many times. Very good food but most important is they allow you to dial the heat intensity from 1-10 so you can get the right amount of heat

Excellent food in a very classy setting....very accommodating service. We always really enjoy our meals . Tonight they made us something "off menu" ....no problem and very well made. The food is a cut above their competitors. The vegetable dishes are outstanding.

This restaurant is a treasure. My husband and I meet friends here once a month. The dishes are seasoned to perfection. Be certain to try their chutneys and ask for the mango chutney they have brought in from India. The restaurant is on the expensive side but worth it. If you don't know what to order, ask one of the... More

We know Indian food from India. I am aware that this is Scottsdale, Arizona, not India. At the moment we have nice weather in this area, and we would like to sit outside, on the terrace, if possible. Unfortunately it was not possible because the door was broken - and it seems that nobody cares about it. Everyone is happy... More

As with others who have dined at this restaurant, it is quite puzzling. It is ALWAYS empty. And, when I say empty, I mean...3 tables tops. We walked in and saw 2 other tables seated. One had 1 person. There was another table for 2, and the rest of the restaurant was empty. The tables were set nicely with white... More

The waiter we had last night was rude! I'm not sure if he thought he was being funny, but we left he no tip and we will not be back to this restaurant because of him.

I've honed my taste for Indian food living in London, which has some of the best Indian food in the world. This hidden gem of a restaurant has excellent Indian food in a quiet, hidden corner of a court yard behind a large strip mall. It is worth seeking out. We had a delicious meal Friday night with excellent service.... More

went for dinner last night. I had curried chicken and wife had shrimp in a spinach sauce. We both loved our meals . One of the best Indian food we have had. Services was good but was not too crowded. The place is in a mall ( same place as Mastro's ) but in a little alcove so easy to... More
