A good friend and I had a taste for Indian and saw the reviews so we took this in on Saturday evening. The place was relatively busy but emptied out around 8pm. Atmosphere was casual and loftish interior design. Service was prompt, attentive and the waiter was suggestive. In the end we settled on the clay pot sampler as an... More

We adore Indian food, and this is one of only like 2 places in STC where you can get Indian food. The curries are amazing, love their naan and the tandoori chicken- yum. We often get this for dinner or come for the lunch buffet. The service is always a little odd - the servers don't really understand the suburban... More

OUTSTANDING CUISINE AND SERVICE! Our first dining experience at this establishment could not have been better! Friendly, knowledgeable staff, incredible food, pleasant atmosphere. If you like spicy or mild Nepali food you will certainly enjoy this restaurant. Portions not huge but actually perfect size. we had an appetizer, main course plus dessert and left completely satisfied, not hungry. You never... More

We went to this exceptional restaurant for the first time. Being unfamiliar with Nepali food, we went for lunch so we could sample their buffet. We enjoyed everything we sampled. We didn't realize the that extremely reasonably priced lunch also included our own individual serving of Tandoori Chicken. It was also outstanding - full of flavor and very tender. The... More

The wait staff was super attentive and the complementary poppadom (sp?) with sauces was lovely. My new favorite restaurant.

Had dinner here on Saturday night. I had the Chicken Tika Masala and it was extremely tasty but a bit on the small side portion wise. Here is where the bad experience comes in... I asked for some extra sauce for the Masala and they gave it to me but charged me $8.00 for the sauce. My meal was $14... More

Have eaten there twice. Both times it was good though it was better the second when we went with friends that knew Indian food and could help us order a mix of dishes that fit together. A nice restaurant for a casual dinner at a decent price.

This was our 5th time dining there over the past year. We had the lunch buffet once, but other times we were there for dinner. On this last visit, we ordered chana masala, tandoor chicken tikka, and naan. We also had white basmati and veg biryani rice. All very good. We went home with leftover rice and chicken! We'll be...
