After trying several times, we succeeded in reserving a table. I was told the restaurant is very trendy and busy. Yes it is on both counts. But the experience was very positive. The staff was very nice and helpful, we were seated immediately. Our waiter was very knowledgeable about the menu and guided us through with helpful suggestions. We had shrimp wrap and crispy spinach for appetizers, both outstanding. The flavors and the spices were wonderful. Smoky lentils and lamb followed. Again the spices were perfect and very satisfying. We were told the President and first Lady had dined there recently as well as former and future president Clinton. Not a bad reference. I would like to see the wine list a bit more affordable. In the mean time I will order beer which goes well with Indian spices.
