Great food and you're guaranteed a table

This is a great restaurant. We had delicious Goat Saag, wonderful garlic naan, and the best desserts - gulab jamun and a magnificent small dish of peach ice cream. Yes, also a delicious Hendrick's gin martini up with a twist for me. But we were the only customers there! Everyone else seems to... read more

We were lucky enough to stumble across this restaurant while on our way to another one. We were starving so we started off with some papadums and Kingfisher beer. The 22oz bottles are a great deal although if we had seen the great price on a bottle of Moet we probably would have ordered that instead. Papdums were served with... More

To begin with, our waiter was absolutely wonderful ... helping us navigate the menu to choose the dishes that would satisfy our family's different palates. I wish I would have remembered to ask his name. In any case, everyone with whom we came in contact at the restaurant was very friendly. :-) We are so happy we found this restaurant!... More

Stopped in on a whim while traversing Seattle because it was next to the amazing "Delicatus" and could not have been happier! Even with a huge table next to us, we were still served in record time. The service was excellent and My travel companion and I shared an appetizer plate, lamb curry, and stuffed naan between us and still... More

This is a fun place to visit after you're broke from the other local bars, and just want to get your drink on. Loud juke box, conversations, and good prices on drinks.

During my 2 year residence in West Seattle, this was my absolute favorite restaurant. I would come here with friends, I would order take out, and they even do delivery! I probably ate here at least once every 2 weeks and it was delicious every time. I could not get enough of their food. Everything new I tried was so... More

My go-to Indian take-out for family (spices from really mild to mid-hot). Good value in serving size- usually have leftovers for lunches. Huge but repetitive menu: Sauces A,B, C, D, E, and F with chicken, lamb, shrimp, goat, or vegetarian. Few mistakes with phone orders, rare with Indian takeout. Decent conservative lunch buffet. Better buffet ar Royal India.

I go here with family when I am in town. Prices are very reasonable, the background noise is low so that we can talk. Recently there were twelve of us, we shared meals--tasty and fun to do, including a round of drinks, hors d'oeuvres and dessert (not tip) it was $215. They let us stay and talk as long as... More

We all ordered something different (Chicken tikka masala, lamb in coconut curry, vegetable curry etc.). All had distinct flavors and the service was excellent-we will return!

Yup, my first try at Indian food, about one year ago. Luckily it was here, I love to go back! I am from central Washington, I visit Seattle every other week to visit my sick father. I try and make a meal here each visit. The price is fair, I adore the tandoori chicken, others like the curries. Have fun,... More
