Consistently great food and service, our local fave for Indian!

Not what you'd expect at a mall, but Lehja isn't an ordinary Indian restaurant. You won't find a lengthy menu of traditional Indian meals, instead you'll find one page of some of the best contemporary Indian food in the area, and if you don't see what you want, ask Sunny and the kitchen fix it for... read more

I had the chicken tikka masala and the lamb kabob appetizer. The rice was excellent and so was the naan. I order the spicy and it was really hot but it was also very good. If your not into spicy you can ask for less spice. The service was very good. I was really full after eating here. If your... More

Went to Lehja for an early New Years Eve dinner. Lehja is small, "cozy" might be a good word. If you sit close to the front door be prepared to get a blast of cold air every time the door opens. On to the food. Had the appetizer special, at the recommendation of our waiter. It was by far the... More

This is my favorite Indian restaurant in the USA and one of the best I've had anywhere. My wife and I have been coming here since they first opened and each time Sunny and his staff exceed our highest expectations. The variety of food is eclectic, aromatic and sinfully tasteful. The service is always excellent and the atmosphere is welcoming,... More

This was our first trip here. Warm welcome, nice atmosphere --a bit noisy but only because they were busy. Well appointed bar, good draft beer selection and pretty decent wine list esp. by glass. Had some questions about menu and was guided through them nicely with some good recommendations. Service was very good and attentive. My wife out -ordered me... More

I was shopping in the mall and decided to stop in. I was with my mother. The dinning room was packed. The atmosphere was clean but very loud. It was defiantly not relaxing after a day of shopping. The service was very good. The food was less than par. We had 2 glasses of wine, an appetizer to share, an... More

We reserved at Lehja based on the TA and other rave reviews. It's rare to go to a place with high expectations and have them exceeded, but this is one of those places. It was a quiet Sunday and not many patrons but they made it special for us. Wonderfully knowledgable and charming service from Raj, who had excellent recommendations,... More

For me, Lehja had only one problem--I wanted to try almost everything on the menu, but we have our limits. What particularly excited me was that it had such variety, and many dishes you don't see at most Indian restaurants in the suburbs. My server not only helped me to choose with his own recommendations and descriptions, but he let... More

After past travels in Asia and Europe my taste buds were calling out for some genuine Indian tastes and after some serious checking with friend and colleagues Lehja was recommended..... and it turned out to be excellent treat and a total recapture of past memories. Everything was perfect with superb taste, presentation and variety. I'll be back many times! Although... More
