Beggars Can't Be Choosers

Only Indian place in town. Scratches the itch. Not the best but also not the worst. A la cart is a bit pricey, buffet is the way to go.

While staying at Piitsfield's "Hotel on North" (an outstanding new hotel, by the way), and being unwilling to venture out on a chilly night, my wife and I ordered takeout from this restaurant, which is across the street. The restaurant is unsophisticated - a simple, quiet space with Indian music whispering in the background. But for fans of Indian food,... More

Had been to this restaurant after hearing from friends on the reviews on the web. Well, sort of disappointed, there was just 1 person to do everything in the restaurant. Took about 10 minutes to get him even speak to us. Ordered House Platter comprising of a combo of veg and non veg snacks. Pakoda and samosa were good. The... More

Typical Indian Resturant. I found what I was looking for. Tried chicken tikka masala and it was ok. Tried lamp beryani and didn't like the meat really.

We were really looking forward to an Indian meal and when we found this one I was really interested. Unfortunately, as a European diner, I found the food boring, bland. The waiter was a nice guy.

We used to order out from there all the time. One night I ordered food and the chicken tikka masala was so hot that it literally melted the bottom of the container it was in and spilled everywhere in the take out bag. I got home and saw this and called them up asking them to give me another order.... More

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
