Great Food, Reasonable Price

The food in this restaurant is outstanding. The wait staff is personable and attentive. The only downside is that you sit very close to the other tables, but this may have been because there was a giant party the night we were there.

Staff is friendly and courteous. Food is awesome.. I love their Garlic Naan and Paneer Masala .. Have tried Lunch Buffet too which is also good and worth the money.

The food here is great, the lunch buffet offers a lot of variety and the main ingredients are noted on the serving dishes. This is a great place to eat if you have never had Indian food and even better if you already love Indian food. The price for the buffet is very reasonable for the selection available.

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.

Fast, friendly as well helpful service, combined with tasty food. In addition the prices are average for the quality served. The ambient isn't high level but with India style. The thing what bothers me, is only the permanently running Video Screen with India movies and the two TV's at the bar. A restaurant doesn't need a TV or screen.... However,... More

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.
