Delicious, authentic but not fancy

It is worth mentioning that if you are hungry and enjoy Indian food, then their lunch buffet is not to be missed.

The food is ok and good. Not super authentic but like most other Indian restaurants. The dosa and naan were very dry. Gulag jamun was good for dessert. They had limited vegetarian rice item.

One of the best places in US, where you get really yummy Indian food, ofcourse with a good service. And you dont want to miss the Egg Biryani. Its the best Egg Biryani, I have ever had.

Comes with three incredible dips or chutneys -- one with coconut, one with cilantro, and one... okay I can't remember, but who cares because those are my favorite. Order either an assorment of entre items a la cart, or the thali dinners, which are served in an array of little flat metal bowls.... More
