For the prices you get there, especially if you take the lunch buffet, you can't find a better indian food in all the places I have been till today (7/2014). Excellent Naan and Tikka Massala Chicken, extra tasty. Been there several times. I remember that one time I have eaten so much that I couldn't walk afterwards! This place has... More

This second-floor restaurant overlooking a portion of Harvard Square exudes a kind elegance not always found in Indian restaurants in the Boston area. Our party of four particularly enjoyed the tandoori chicken and salmon as well as the chicken and vegetarian biryanis. There was a wide assortment of breads and chutneys to complement the entrees. We were too full to... More

Now, I'm not really an expert, but the food here was delicious and tasty, so I'll rate it 'very good' and hope that no one who really knows Indian food will call me out on it. Everything was spiced as we had asked it to be, the food was served quickly, and the service was brisk and friendly.

We have eaten dinner here twice. The ambience is much nicer than most Indian restaurants in the area (though with higher prices to match), although the noise level can be a bit high when the place is full. Service has been very friendly and willing. In general, the food (mostly northern-style) is quite good (although I think the naan could... More

This is the second time we visited this restaurant, and this time there was the lunch buffet. for $12 per person, it is a great value. The food was good, but I was a bit disappointed with the selection. The only meat option was chicken—even in several different forms, it is still the same meat—, the only dessert was rice... More

This was my first time here and won't be my last. I came with a work colleague that's been a couple of times. We had a short wait since we arrived at a peak time of the evening but that was expected. Once seated, service was fast and efficient. Once the food was ordered it came out fast and very... More

The food is great, server was of help when choosing a meal. Ambient is great. I've only waited for a bit longer than necessary to order, but once I did order, the food was prepared and served quickly.

We visited the lunch buffet here recently and enjoyed it immensely. For less than 10/person you get a lot of tasty food. The selection was good with about eight or so hot dishes to choose from plus some. The tables along the windows offer a nice view. Our only problem was that it was full when we showed up and... More
