Came here by myself after a long day on the road. For $18, I received an enormous plate of mixed meat tandoori, complete with garlic naan and a vegetable korma thrown in for no extra charge. I ended up bringing half of it back to the house with me because of the generous portions. High quality as well. Very nice... More

The food is excellent! The staff is on the serious side but who cares...they are fast and they are good. The waitor helped us pick out wine/beer based on what we like and the selections were great. You can order any dish as a combo which includes your naan bread, dips and everything you need to accompany your food choice.... More

Seasonings were all balanced. Variety was good. Prices were reasonable. The only downside was the flat affect of... More

This location used to be a store, so the restaurant has two huge display windows. Each has a table for two. You can sit in them, and it's like outdoor seating without the street noise. They also have two truly outdoor tables, so you can have a dog with you. It's next to the Natural Cafe, which has adjacent outdoor... More

We were attracted to this restaurant by the wonderful smell of spices outside the front door. Once we were inside we had one of the best Indian meals we have enjoyed anywhere in the U.S., Canada or the U.K. Recommended.
