Service and food are outstanding. The restaurant keeps getting better and better. It's nice to get a Mango Lassi without the glass being filled full of ice.

Lamb kebab - uncooked and layer of chilli Applied. Briyani - uncooked rice mixed with chicken and red chilli powder. Totally my dinner was spoiled, with burning sensation in stomach after eating. Instead I could have starved.

I'm partial to chana masalla and theirs is delicious, and their sag paneer is delocious to, has plenty of paneer and is wonderful. The naans are great too. We have also tried the samosas and bhaji, which... More

I know the food cost in CA is more compare to any other state still I am tot satisfied with the spread. Very limited option for both veg and non veg. Taste is below par for the price they charge. At least they should increase their non veg to 3 items from 2 for the weekend buffet.
