Great rice bowl and Lassi

Lassi is seasonal, however the rice bowl and pronti are really good. GOA CATCH was the best I've had and like, fish eater should try this, otherwise the chicken pronti and rice bowl is fine.

Delicious food for a small place. Served "fast food" style, not waiter/waitress service. But always tasty. I enjoy the red fort dish.

Pronti is delicious! I typically get the Lucknow Special rice bowl (lamb). Ask for extra sauces. Also make sure to try the brownies!! They are amazing (and I don't even like brownies normally)

This place has some interesting lunch options- Indian flavored meat in Naan wraps and rice bowls. Everything is made fresh to order and tastes great. The smoothies are also highly recommended. Not the same old lunch food- unique and tasty.

Good restaurant with Indo American style of cooking. I like the chapathi with Delhi chicken having spicy taste with additional sauces making the taste so delicious.

This place combines Indian Food with a Sub Shop vibe. (You can add cheese to almost everything like an American!) However, even moderately spicy means SPICY, so be careful how you order. Friendly service, watch Bollywood videos while you wait, could be cleaner, prices reasonable. Tasty food!

I hate that I just can't go here anymore. I have been at least 3x but the last time was the final straw. The bathrooms were the filthiest I ever saw, the trash was overflowing near the counter and there was dirt all over the restaurant floor. It looked like it hadn't been cleaned in a while. It just makes... More

Fast food with a fun twist! A great alternative to the usual chain fare of the neighborhood. I lived in India for work for a few years and this reminds me of good qwik food there but made in a modern kitchen.

The pronti bread is delicious, in fact everything I have had here has been good, including the daily soup special. Dynamite chicken is spicy with a great mint yogurt dip. Looks can be deceiving, you would never think this little place on the corner of an intersection would be this good. Not open for dinner on weekends, disappointing.

This is a very good Indian place that mostly caters to the lunch crowed. They don't stay open very late for dinner which is a shame! The service is very good, although the parking is difficult. This is a reasonably priced place. Counter service, with a decent variety of entrees. They have Bollywood style music videos on TV's around the... More
