Good Food, Slow Service

Every time I've come here the service is incredibly slow. During my most recent visit the place was getting pretty crowded but there was only one server. There were other workers at the bar and going in and out of the kitchen, but this one woman was taking care of every table in the restaurant. She... read more

We had lunch and dinner over here. Dinner was good and awesome. We liked the Biryani which is authentic. We didn't like the lunch buffet as food was cold and nothing special about it. They should improve the buffet.

This is by far one of my favorite Indian restaurants, any where in the world. The food was amazing. The samosa and pakora starter was amazing. plenty of dips and huge portion. The curry was amazing. I had a vindaloo and it blew my head off, which is what I wanted because north America is usually way to mild for... More

I'm not a particular fan of Indian food but in the spirit of going along with the crowd, I joined my boyfriend and another couple for dinner before a concert. Most impressive was the service; making sure we all ordered the appropriate spicy level for our foods. In the end we all shared a bit of everything and it was... More

Food and service were quite basic. They charge a ridiculous 20$ as mandatory tip on our check. Would not recommend to anyone and surely not going back.

Recommended by our hotel, we found the food, service, and ambiance to be just average. Price was a little on the high side too, but probably due to the location. Shrimp bhuna was good, but the fish curry was not very flavorful. And the garlic naan was a little greasy.

Our meals were excellent. We had appetizers and dinner. All of our dishes were great. Chicken Tikka Masala and Lamb Vindelo were especially good.

Worst service I have had in a very long time. Wait time to get your order placed and then getting the order is very long and the servers don't care about anything. Automatic gratuity of 18% is added at the end (which probably explains why the server won't care at all). No1 even comes back to fill the glasses or... More

I had a very nice dinner here with an Indian co-worker that I was attending a conference with in Minneapolis. As he was the expert he did all the ordering and it was delicious. We ordered medium spice and it was a bit on the hot side but as I like my food on the hot side it was perfect.... More
