While its not THE BEST Indian food I have ever had it was certainly in the top 5 list. Its a pleasant atmosphere with friendly staff and good flavor profiles. They also have a buffet on weekends!

We were immediately offered drinks and appetizers. Our party had a wide range of tastes in terms of level of seasoning. The wait staff and the cooks fulfilled our varied... More

This is a good, solid Indian restaurant that our community is lucky to have. Priced very reasonably, with good service and atmosphere, it is particularly popular for it's lunch buffet. Great chai!
