Wonderful food and exotic music

We had the pork vindaloo wrap and the garbanzo bean with pork in the rice bowl . The spices are delicious. We were very pleasantly surprised as this is the strip mall and REI is right up the way....not expecting anything great. It is a very good bargain and quite tasty.

This little place has big flavors! We had the tandoori mushrooms and Samosas followed by the lamb and ground beef dish. Also had garlic nann. All was delicious and the prices are small. It is by on too.

If you want a place to entertain a small group, this is it: they have a “banquet room” in the back room. The minimally decorated room was great for our family: a full range of elders, middle aged, young adults and very active smaller kids. The service was very fast (thank God with active kids). And that was about it.... More

Great little place. Menu is small, but what is on it is good. Good curries (including goat - it was good, but I prefer their lamb). I primarily come here for the Himalayan food, especially the Kalimpong Shapta. Food can be ordered mild to burn your eye-brows off spicy. Excellent selection of vegetarian food as well.

I tried the tingmo (dumpling) that comes with house spicy sauce and mint chutney, and the tika masala chicken with raita. The house sauce is a mix of soy sauce and a hot sauce that actually has a surprising kick. The tingmo were good with the mint chutney, but I wasn't a fan of the house sauce. (Flavour reasons, not...

Quite a change from the usual vegetarian Alaskan fare (if that is a thing) that we'd come to expect on our 10-day trip. The menu, just like everything else at the place, is non-elaborate, and more function over form. But if you're looking for good Indian-ish food in a decent setting, find your way here. Distinctly remember the Tingmo (Tibetan... More

Not sure what they are called but they are excellent. As an appetizer or even small dinner. The sauces are nicely done and the portions are within reason. Parking is fine but this is a popular place.

The menu here is not huge, but it still offers a good selection, mostly focused on a rice bowl served with something (tikka masala or curry or something similar) and their sandwiches. All the times I have been the food has been of high quality and served quickly.

I love this place! We had a huge party with multiple toddlers and they catered to us perfectly. We were put in the back room and served amazing food at really reasonable prices.
