“Very salty and over priced”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed July 20, 2012 via mobile

We've lived in Ann Arbor for over 20 years. Always loved the food and atmosphere. Used to go there twice a month. The past few months noticed the food was too salty. Once the tandoori chicken was not edible - too salty. Last week we gave it another chance and we had the same experience. Everything was salty, even the raita(yogurt). I hope they get their act together. I don't think we will be going there anymore.

“Best in Ann Arbor”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 30, 2012

Lived in Ann Arbor for years, and this is my favorite restaurant. A must try.

Veg pakoras are great. Murgh vindaloo and curry are our favorites. Chana Pindi and Karahi Paneer are amazing.

Indoor and outdoor seating available. More expensive that the other nearby indian restaurants, but much better.

“Indian Cuisine”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 13, 2012

They do a wonderful job with the Indian cuisine. Heat to my liking and plenty of food! It's great to share the entrees.

“Very good food, bit pricey”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 29, 2012

Possibly the best tasting Indian food in the Ann Arbor/Metro Detroit area. I actually like the fact that they don't have a lunch buffet like every other Indian restaurant; they do have lunch platters wherein you can choose the main entree rather than be forced to eat the buffet fare. Very busy on weekend nights, reservations recommended. Beverages are ok, service and atmosphere are good. Location is on Main Street in Ann Arbor, so parking can be a problem; plan to use one of the public paid structures and walk to the restaurant. My favorites - malai kofta and kadai paneer...yumm
