Went for the first time with a groupon I bought on a sunday night, very quiet, maybe 4-5 tables were occupied. Food was average, service was average. We had to keep asking the waiter for everything from straws to napkins to salt shakers. Butter Chicken was good, the rest was just OK. When we were almost finishing up dinner, a... More

This restaurant reopened in the Florida Mall area on Crystal Clear Lane at the intersection of Sand Lake Road and Orange Blossom Trail, after the Bay Hill location (located on Turkey Lake Road was closed). It is owned and operated by the same family and chef. The only thing that has changed is the location. Food is excellent - every... More

Having eaten here for several years the food has been very consistent. The chicken tikka masala, aloo gobi, bindhi masala are my favorites. I am well traveled and understand that all ethnic food varies. Some reviews are dead wrong and should stick to Darden restaurants. The food and service is very good. If you want heat ask then to spice... More
