This is the best Indian food in town – fully vegetarian, the food is delicious. Bhel thali - hara bhara bhel is superb. We ordered for three Gujarati Thaali and one Bhel Thaali. All the items were very great… Tawah Ki Rotis were very thin and soft. Really an authentic Indian Gujarati Food very close to Home Made Food served... More

In last one month I went to this place, twice, first with my son and daughter-in-law for late lunch and later with my daughter and her family for early dinner. This restaurant offers several varieties in chaat (Indian snacks) besides items serving as full or partial meals. In chaats, dahi poori/dahi papri/sev puri and other dahi (curd snacks) are really...

Ok, I'm a little impatient with the other reviewers who didn't seem to understand that this is a CHAAT restaurant, not a full Indian restaurant. Chaat means snack, but it will do for lunch. Yes, it is all veg and no alcohol. Lunch, ok, calm down! This was very tasty chaat and we ate until we were stuffed. Chole batura,... More

Looking for sort of home cooked indian food. This place is good. 2 people can eat in 17-18 dollars (assuming you order 2 dishes and 8 chapatis).

Large dining room, friendly servers who were very helpful in suggesting a nice variety of tastes and textures. Just a bit under-attentive in that we did not get all of our order and could not get attention of servers to follow up. Also not available when we were ready to get the bill. Loved the food and will definitely return.... More

The food's pretty good, considering this unassuming restauratn is tucked away in the corner of a mall right on the edge of Mountain View. Don't go expecting luxurious surroundings though.

The reviews are true. The food is great. It is a vegetarian restaurant but it doesn't matter one bit, if you like Indian, this is the place to go. A firm future fixture.
