Best Indian in Niagara Falls

Authentic punjabi Indian cuisine. Nothing fancy here, just fresh and homemade food. This might be the best Indian restaurant in Western New York.

Although the quality of food was good I was particularly upset that the staff were not helpful in providing or identifying food for my son which was nut free and egg free. Whilst the restaurant was busy with guests, they were just not interested in catering to our request.
