The dining experience is a bit underwhelming but the food is good, not particularly expensive, generous portions. The evening we were there, there was hardly anyone in the restaurant at all. The owners have done little to make the facility itself a very inviting or comfortable place but maybe they are putting more emphasis on the food. I haven't been... More

We came here to use a Groupon and haven't regretted it. When it comes down to it, the food is always great, and Alex is always a gracious host.

Disappointing. Typical strip mall restaurant, until you enter inside and then you're on your own. No one at the front door. You wonder if they're even open. Service satisfactory, but slow. Skip the appetizers, save your money. We had what the waiter recommended; it was barely edible. Again, we asked for recommendations from the waiter for the main course. The... More

We had been here for a lunch buffet. They had kept all non-veg items together with veg, one beside the other in a manner which would hurt a veggie, and this they never do in Indian restaurants and don't do in American restaurants too. This is terrible for a veggie. The veg items were hopeless with absolutely no taste. We... More

I really, really dig this place. Everything kind of works for it. The food defies description. Go for the goat, and you will be forever hooked on goat meat. I wish more people were, in lieu of beef, but that's a discussion for another day. The veg korma is a standout. This joint is my "Give a Mouse a Cookie"... More

The husband and I went there for dinner last night, everything was absolutely wonderful. My samosas were perfect and my husband said the lamb dish he ordered was the best he's ever had. We also tried the Taj mahal beet, it was light and had wonderful flavor.

We go there often for lunch and dinner, and we've only had two different servers on all these occasions. Prices are a little high for this market, but the lunch buffet is an excellent way to try it out, and we've found a number of tasty new dishes this way. Some of our favorites: Samosa chaat, Aloo Chana papri chaat,... More

We have enjoyed Indian cuisine for 25 years and try to visit an Indian restaurant whenever we travel. After consulting Trip advisor, we selected this restaurant for dinner. As we drove up, we noticed the parking lot was empty at the height of the a dinner hour. As we entered the restaurant, we saw we were the only diners. There... More

The food was okay, nothing spectacular! The staff was helpful in describing the food that I was unfamiliar with. It wasn't as fresh as I would have liked, but not bad.

We had the lunch buffet. Very good food, with a few items not usually found in Indian restaurants such as upadam. The Chicken Tiki Masala, Goat Curry, Vegetable Korma, and Saag were also very good.
