I eat here too much

I've traveled all over the world (never to India though) and this is some of the best Indian food I have found outside of a Borough Market in England. Their delivery usually takes around an hour but if you are in the mood to get take-out, their hidden dive bar in the back has excellent drinks and... read more

I was in the neighborhood and ate there. The service was ok and the atmosphere was ok. I could taste the spices sometimes individually so it seemed they were using quality ingredients. The food just did not taste good to me. I ordered twice what I could eat so I could take some home for later meal as well. I... More

We all agree on this place, my kids and I. We love the curries, the Tikka Masala, the Garlic Nan, and the Chicken Briyani. The Mango Lassi is also a favorite. We did try the desserts and were not impressed, not likely to do that again. This restaurant also has a bar in the back, so plenty of alcohol options... More

We were so thrilled to find this restaurant, as we'd been craving authentic Indian food for some time. All the dishes we ordered were amazing. I can't wait to go back the next time we're in West Seattle!

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

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 prefer takeout. To me, that's a tragedy.... 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
