Love this place. Great lunch menu, which gives you a lot of food. We also ordered extra naan and mango chutney (yum) and some vegetable pakoras.

I like Indian food but I think this was only the second time that I actually went to an Indian restaurant. This place was highly recommended and after eating there I can see why. We ordered several different dishes so that we could all share. Everyone's dish was good but the vindaloo was my favorite...it was full of flavor. If... More

Dinner for two with samosas, two entrees, rice , two beers and bread , 55 bucks. Food is excellent. Cute little place, most items a la carte: the combo dinners for two best deal. Samosas are delicious, we had lamb Vindaloo and lamb Frankki. In Old Pasadena so convenient to shops, movies etc. Public parking lot practically next door.

This place has excellent, authentic Indian food at a great price. We stopped in for a quick lunch on a weekend. You get the perfect amount of food and lots of fresh naan. Service was good and the atmosphere was relaxing and open. Highly recommended!!

Old Town is filling up with theme restaurants -- this is the real thing. Family owned and operated, it is consistently good and well worth adding to your list of regular stops.

Little tired indian restaurant in Pasadena Old Town district. Food quite tasty but no wow factor in food, decor or service. The above average reviews may possibly reflect the relative scarcity of good Indian food in southern California from my experience. Nevertheless if you are hankering for an Indian, this place might just satisfy you. If you like spicy hot,... More

This restaurant exists in old town Pasadena in the vicinity of many Asian restaurants. The owner is the cook. He combines North India menus with South India dishes. Very delicious at very reasonable prices. The restaurant is small and more intimate. There is rich cultural décor all around. Two sidewalk tables offer outside seating. Public parking is directly across the... More
