This place was great. We had a party of 10 (4 kids), and they handled it with east and class. Food was awesome, and more then we could handle. Wait staff was attentive, friendly, and helpful. Everything they claimed about their food or drinks was true and spot on. Head waiter for our table made us feel like we were... More

I took my mother for the lunch buffet- she wasn't so sure about Indian food but as soon as we walked through the door, she was impressed by the comfortable, clean, inviting ambience complete with white linen tablecloths. The food was very good, tasty, hot and fresh and the fresh baked garlic naan was the perfect accompaniment. The waitstaff was... More

We really enjoy good Indian food but have not had this experience for a long while. My family is big fan of Indian food and this time Trip Advisor saved us from any disappointment when we checked the reviews of this restaurant at Emmet St. Great atmosphere, friendly service and most importantly was the food - which was the best...

This food was obviously made by a professionally trained chef. The best Indian food I have ever had. The atmosphere was very nice and the service was very good. I had some questions as I am also gluten free and a head waiter (I assume) came over to answer any questions and made suggestions regarding that and any spice issues.... More

They have a great lunch buffet, as long as you get there by 1:30 (it closes at 2:30). Their dinner menu is great. My daughter and I shared a "Dinner for Two" which came with a delicious cauliflower appetizer and a huge amount of food for the entree's, including a vegetarian dish. It also included desert. All for $40! Service... More

We mostly enjoyed our visit to Milan. The service was very good, efficient and helpful, and the food for the most part was quite good. Our table really enjoyed the Rogan Josh with lamb (a curry style sauce), and Pasanda with goat ( which reminded me of what a korma is in other restaurants). The meat was tender and delicious,...

My favorite Indian food in town. Love their naan, raita, and chicken tikka masala. Love it for dining in and take-out. Scrumptious. I will keep this short and sweet: their food is phenomenal.

Lunch buffet great (lots of veggie choices), dinner quieter and also terrific food from the menu. The sauces grab you and they know how to kick it up a notch. Consistent service and quality make this a local favorite.

I have been here many, many times and have never had a bad meal. It is our usual go-to spot when we want take out food. The menu is varied and spice and heat range widely from near bland to eye-watering. The lamb dishes are always good as are the seafood based items. It can get a bit crowded and... More

Had dinner with a friend. Our waiter was charming and gave excellent service. The other staff that attended us were also friendly and excellent. The food was absolutely delicious. The atmosphere is quite pleasant and comfortable. Great experience.
