“Superb Indian Food”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 29, 2013

I have eaten Indian food in many places over the years, and none surpasses that which is available at Sam's. It is the only restaurant in that area that I regularly recommend, and my whole family goes there often - my wife and I and one son for the Indian food, my other boy for the pizza, which itself is first-rate. Excellent naan, tikka, etc.

“Odd”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed July 13, 2013

Trying to be somewhere that offers pizzas subs burgers and Indian food would seem to be a difficult task. Well it is! Have been eating Indian food for fifty years, this was OK but Indian not!

“Better than New York city!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 8, 2013

What a stunner. Really nice service. Fantastic menu. The okra was to die for. We just couldn't ask for better any Indian food and we've eaten all over the world in Indian restaurants. This is just the best inthe most unsuspecting place you can never think of

“Great Indian”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 27, 2013

We found this place and were happy to see that it doubles as an Indian restaurant. We were lucky to have excellent service - we were the only ones in the dining room as we were having a late dinner.

The food was good, not the best Indian I've ever had but definitely tasty, very well spiced, very tasty naan. The masala chai was welcome on such a cold day. The atmosphere needs some help, but they do take out!

“Tasty sandwiches to go!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 11, 2013

We used a 20% off coupon from the Safari motel to grab a couple of sandwiches to take to the park. Turns out, they were pretty doggone good! Did not sample the Indian food or pizza, but what we saw leaving the kitchen while we were waiting for out sandwiches looked great - wish we'd had time to try some!
