Good!

I was out in Baltimore by myself, I ran into this little place. It doesn't look like much but I did not let the appearance or $9.95 lunch buffet price scare me away. The service was friendly, the price is right, the place was full, the food was great!

I'm not a very adventurous eater, and I hadn't had Indian food until I was convinced to try this place. You should either go with a person familiar with Indian food or at least have an idea of what you want to eat because the menus don't go into great detail about ingredients. However, the food is delicious! My only... More

This is a Mount Vernon staple for very good Indian food. And the owner aims to please when it comes to ingredients and spicing. Consistently yummie.

Pretty good spread and they kept it stocked. Food only warm and my favorite chicken tikka was very dry today.

My boyfriend and I ate here for the first time last night and we enjoyed every minute! I just happened to pick this place off Google maps on a whim. We wanted to have a nice night out. This place is in the basement, so it can be easy to miss if you aren't paying attention. The inside is cozy... More

When we arrived (7;00 p.m.) the place was almost full. Good sign of things to come. Granted even though there's a limited amount of seating, everything goes smoothly because it's self evident from the owner, wait staff and kitchen work together and you can sense the pride they share with all their guests; from the couple who were last to...

I've been coming here for years. I love the meat samosas, mixed grill, and the rice pudding. They make a good gold margarita too believe it or not
