I met a friend here for lunch and was quite surprised at what a lovely place this was and how marvelous and tasty the food was on the buffet. The buffet foods were fresh and delicious and we were served warm naan at the table along with a sizzling platter of tandoori chicken. The service was outstanding and the restaurant... More

Today 8/29/14-Friday, I... More

This restaurant has nice calming décor and a genuinely pleasant atmosphere. The food is exceptionally good. I have eaten in a fair number of Indian restaurants and while I am no expert, I like how the food is prepared here and the flavors are varied and exciting. The service is self-effacing, but as one other reviewer remarked, they don't often... More

Not so big and high end but still well kept and clean. The service was good although the waiters could have had friendly smiles. Food was served quicker than expected. Do not go for the highest spice level if you dont like hot hot stuff, since it will be very very spicy. The garlic naan is a must try if... More

I am in awe at how magically the chef mingles spices with the freshest seafood and vegetables to create a symphony for my palate. The vast number of choices are arrayed across an informative menu. Every question I had was answered patiently and kindly. Suggestions were made and I embarked upon a transformative journey into the wonders of gourmet Indian... More

Although their portions run small, they have excellent cuisine. They can spicing to your likeness. On the other hand, as they are getting more popular, their service is slowing. In addition, they no longer serve per-meal snack as they used to do - we really loved it before.
