Stopped here for dinner, having past by it many times in the past few years, and am glad that I did. The restaurant is neatly set up, white table clothes, well detailed tables, and service is excellent. I tried the Aloo Gobi and found it quite good. The Poori was excellent. I would recommend this to any Indian Food fans.... More

my boyfriend and I eat here all the time. We get takeout from this place once a week. The food is delicious and I've had no problems at all with the servers or the restaurant owners or anyone who works there. The building might look a little bit run down but so what? It's not just a restaurant there's apartments... More

Mediocre Indian food, but if you like Indian Bolllywood videos, this is the place for you, they constantly play on the TVs around the dining room.

We were a bit hesitant based on some of the negative reviews, but I am glad we did not stay away. My BF and I are happy to have found this play, so close to home. I couldn't find any fault with anything that we had. We had veggie samosas, naan, chicken biryani and gobhi alu. Everything was spot on.... More

This is the second time we've eaten there, the visits being a year apart. Both times the food was outstanding and the service excellent. The lamb dishes were scrumptious and the nan breads to die for (try the garlic one). Friendly server (owner?) helped us choose dishes and patiently explained the difference between vindaloo and other dishes. We'll go back!

My boyfriend and I are visiting from NJ and saw the menu at the hotel so decided to give it a shot. When we asked the hotel owner (Indian might I add) for his review he said he has not been there, he drives 30 min to Albany for Indian food, now I see why. From the moment we tried... More

The building itself is in poor condition, and a little scarry looking from the outside. The inside of the restaraunt is awful! Walls peeling and cracked, molding coming off and also TINY! The theme is cheaply overdone, and the service isn't that great. When our food came out it all tasted like burnt plastic, and rubber. They only thing they... More

We were waiting there for over half an hour for our appetizers and drinks. Barely anyone in the restaurant had food, people who have been there longer than us. The atmosphere was lamely overdone. We got up and left. Not our best choice for dinner.

For true authentic Indian dishes this place has it covered. I generally order to go because the atmosphere here is not close to comparing to the food. But if you enjoy authentic Indian fare, give this place a try.
