Authentic Curries from India make it incredible.

These people know how to season. The hotness of the food is excellent as it warms you from inside rather than igniting your sinuses. Every dish was perfect and the nan was excellent. Good matching Indian beer and a good wine list too. Very good service. I prefer the brick second room as it has an... read more

I come here really often and am pretty picky on my Indian food. I have had a little bit of everything and all have been amazing. My favorites are Butter Chicken, Eggplant, Lamb sag, naan (of course), vegetable Samosa ... but you can't go wrong with anything on their menu. Their take out is prompt and on time. I would... More

We came here for dinner after going to the movies. I liked the decor of this Indian restaurant. For dinner we had pakoras (very good) and for our main lamb curry, matar panner, rice, and a garlic nan. We asked it to be made spicy. The food was very good. Service was good also. We parked nearby at a free... More

This is my grandma and my favorite place to get Indian food. The staff is always very friendly, and the food is delicious. My only complaint would be that it isn't as spicy as I'm used to in Indian food, but for my grandma it's a plus - she really can't handle that kind of heat anymore.

We were quite impressed. I for one had never had Indian food before, and was quite pleased with the experience.

Go early to the buffet for best choices. Service is quick, prices are good. The yogurt is house made so the Lassis are very good and not too sweet.

I must say we really do like the food and service here but it is just too pricey. The lunch buffet is a very good deal but a takeout dinner for two will run you $50 plus - step price for indian takeout. Food is very good. Love the naan, chicken tikka and the masala. Also have very good tandor... More

It's Saturday night and I made the family dress nice for Uncle's Yu's. We got there and there was a 2.5 hour wait. So we went to Sauce another 45 min wait. Looked across the way to the pizza place and they had a huge line. So we thought let's try that Sansar. We got there and there was only... More
