This area deserves better than this; we had a takeaway and it was by far the most disappointing dhaal makhani and fish madras I had ever tasted, small portions (with a free serving of rice) for the rip-off price of nearly $30. This is all surprising seeing as authenticity is on show, from cricket on the small TV to the... More

I had the nine-vegetable vegetarian dish (which came with basmati rice), and also a salt lassi to drink. It was a good tasty meal, and including gratuity came out at $20

We just ate in for the first time this evening after having ordered take out several times. It appears that most people do take out, as it is almost always somewhat empty inside. You don't go for the decor which is an interesting mix. Instead you go for the food. I debated among the rankings due to this balance. The... More

I and three friends had a leisurely dinner here and thought the food was uniformly excellent. We ordered a couple of different appetizers and each a different entree, all were top-notch. My lamb curry was some of the best I have ever eaten, and the chicken vindaloo and spicy shrimp curry were to die for! You owe it to yourself... More

Didn't seem to be doing a whole lot of business in the late lunch time (2 p.m.), but the curry was good and the lunch specials reasonably priced.

I had a very nice dinner here -- authentic, well-presented, and mostly pretty delicious. The raita was disappointing, but the chicken koorma was some of the best I've had anywhere.

Our family has been going here for years, mostly for the buffet. It's a very kid-friendly place, and the management and staff are always so welcoming and gracious. The buffet food is extremely tasty, although mostly on the milder side. The decor is a bit lackluster, but still has its own homestyle charm, probably because the people are all so... More
