“Freshest, Tastiest Indian Food”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 17, 2013

We visited this restaurant last week, based on the Trip Advisor reviews. They were right on. In most Indian restaurants the food tastes like it was made three days ago. Not here. This was the freshest most flavorful Indian food we've eaten. The tandoor chicken nicely spiced, steaming hot, and had flavors of the real charcoal - no electric tandoors here. The dining area is not large, so a reservation is recommended. Ambiance is very casual, prices are reasonable.

“Best Indian Restaurant I've ever eaten at!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 14, 2013

This place was amazing, we saw it on TripAdvisor as a good place to eat. So figured we would try it out while we were there. We sat on the floor of the place ordered some Mango Lassi's, garlic Naan Bread, and Tikka Masala. We had plenty to eat and even was handed a 10% off coupon as we came in side. They have a bar with a select few drinks. Not very many places to sit so I recommend calling ahead and reserving a seat.
