“Great Indian Food, slow service”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 24, 2012 via mobile

The four of us ordered a bunch of dishes and split so we could try more things. All of the food was terrific, but even with three different waiters, the service was not good at all. It wasn't busy, just service lacking immensely. Not sure if I would go back it was that bad, but good food, good atmosphere and reasonably priced.

“Variable food, poor service”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed August 24, 2012 via mobile

Some things great, others not, overall average.
Sag paneer was disappointingly bland, paneer was dry and rubbery. But the chickpea side was excellent, and the naan was perfect- fresh off the grill, tender and crisp. Onion bhajee was ok, would have been better with the condiments that I asked for and never got.
The waiter tried to talk me out of the wine pairing (more work than a single glass?) and when I insisted, brought it as a flight, all at once, instead of paired with the courses. However, it was excellent, an Italian Pinot grigio, French dry rose and (local?) Gewurtztraminer, none of which were otherwise available by the glass.
Nice little deck outside. It was the pre-show rush, if you can come at another time it might be better.

“Great food!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 14, 2012

Enjoyed thoroughly, especially the Butter Chicken and the Chai Tea was a favorite. Ate indoors and out - both great.
