Good Indian food

I arrived after 8 pm to an empty restaurant so I wondered if they were beginning to close. Instead, I was greeted graciously and encouraged to linger. I decided on a few appetizers instead of a dinner and found them to be freshly made and very flavorful. The hostess, who is probably an owner... read more

The restaurant was empty when we arrived and we were still the only party there when we left. We ordered papadum, garlic naan, mango chicken, and mutter paneer. The latter was ordered spicy and it arrived mild. The papadum was pretty greasy, but the tamarind sauce was good. The place seems tired: decor, service, and kitchen output. I won't be... More

My first attempt to visit on a Monday was unsuccessful. Learned they are closed on that day. Web site didn't give hours, nor was it on the door even though the sign said "Open". Came back the next evening. Ordered a complete meal sampler. Mix-up with the server & got 2 soups. Disappointed in the Mulligawny. It had lentils -... More

Not a big fan of Indian food but son twisted my arm. Loved the chicken ticka, and the potato pockets, the name of which escapes me.

I had heard that this restaurant was good, so was looking forward to trying it. I was a little disappointed with the food. The meat was very tender and the portions were adequate, but the spices were not great. I asked for medium to hot spices and it was very mild. We had two different meat dishes, but the sauce...

Have only had take-out from the restaurant but it was delicious. Malai kofta is one of my favorite dishes and they did it very well. Only thing I didn't like was the coconut in it. Not a fan of coconut texture although my husband loves it. Nan, samosas, rice and lamb were great. Will be going again soon.

Spent a week at a rented house in nearby Biddeford Pool and was very intrigued by the description of this restaurant in the "Maine Coast and Islands" travel guide published by Countryman Press. Despite all the praise from other reviewers, the place was empty on a Friday night. I guess my impression isn't fair, in that that my companion and... More

The food here is made from scratch by a lovely Indian family. The place is nicely decorated and the atmosphere good if the family kids are behaving. The food is well prepared and very tasty. It can be made to the degree of hotness you like so don't worry about it being too spicy and there are many dishes with... More
