When in need for a no-frills quick bite - this is the place to go to

Good Food, fast food, no frills food, + chilled beer. If u r up for this - head here. If you are looking for an elaborate dine-in experience look elsewhere. Delivery is a no-no even though it says so on the glass as u enter. I live in the area and have been here a few times. The last one... read more

Our whole family loves this place and several of the menu items. For me, the Tika Masala is just perfect - one of he better dishes I've had anywhere - and at a good value price

This restaurant was a very similar set up to Pei Wei but Indian food. The food was good and made fast. The staff was friendly and it was clean and convenient. I didn't have the authentic Indian food flare for me but I would eat there again.

It's like fast food Indian style in a contemporary setting. Traditional dishes come in your choice of mild, medium, and hot. The mango drink and chai tea are delicious!

Delicious Indian food near the outlets in Round Rock, so perfect for a lunch break. Seems pretty authentic (based on my limited experience) and the levels of spicy ensure something for everyone. Favorite dish is the Saag with chicken!

Being used to great Indian cooking, I may be a little harsh here... but really, it fills the stomach but nothing outstanding.

I liked everything about my first Indian food experience. I had the help of two family members in ordering and etiquette. We shared Samosa Chaat (starter), shrimp Biryanis, a Curry dish (don't remember which one), and Garlic Naan (bread). The flavors were new, but quite enjoyable.

This is a great option if you want some good indian food fast. It is not your normal sit down place...you walkin, order at the counter and they bring it to you. The food is value priced, and of good quality. Definately worth trying.

Really moist chicken kaboobs, well seasoned grilled veggies and yummy rice--loved the sauce. Entrees under $10 and plenty of food. The extra order of flat bread was really good (enough for 2 to share). Mango lemonaide was dellicious. Staff was very helpful. Plan to eat here again.
