This local spot has undergone several iterations and if you read the previous reviews they were correct. However, I recently went to the highly rated Amber India in Mt. View and ordered their Butter Chicken which is pretty expensive and I must say that the Butter Chicken here is as good if not better than Amber India. I cannot comment... More

Service: Average; Food: Average. The food served was not exactly what we expected (as an Indian, I have pretty good idea about the indian cuisine). It looked like they somehow put all the available things together and made a dish out of it. Food does not taste good either. Staffs are not cordial. I won't recommend going to this place.

don't bother even if you live nearby. The service is always crap, they change owners and names every two minutes and the food is just so so. Don't you dare ask for anything extra (forks, sauces, pickles) they'll tell you to your face that Indian's want everything free and won't give you a damn thing. The prices are changed daily... More

This place is so close to home that I check every few months if it has improved. Previous review made me visit this place again, It is a misleading review, even owner of the restaurant won't give it more than two stars. Every time I visit this place, I feel they have hit the rock bottom. Now nowhere else to... More

We tried this place 2 times. First time, the food ordered was not specifically what we ordered. When we complained, the waiter refused to agree about what we ordred. Luckily the owner was there and he came to our rescue and helped us. Most of the time the owner seems to be absent and the same waiter is the there... More

If you like Biryani's, you would love this place because they have Chicken Bum Biryani, Goat Biryani and newly introduced "Boneless" Vijayawada Spl Chicken Biryani. I love this Boneless Biryani. they are giving 25% Discount on it.

Poor service. Waited for 1.5 hours for the order which never came though the bill was presented to me. No apologies for the delay. No one would make eye contact even. Their food is also inconsistent. In between the lamb biriyani was good. Now its just rice with load of spices and bones. Food sucks too.
