“Excellent food”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 13, 2013

Although they need to fix the sign in front to show their business name food was excellent. We had Lamb curry, Chicken Tikka Masala and chicken curry. They were all very good.
Only let down was I ordered a hot tea and it comes in tiny cup with NO refil.Based on the cost of tea bag, this was not nice.

“If you love Indian food you must try this place”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 8, 2013

Excellent food, samosas the best I have ever had. The entrees were a healthy portion and the flavors were fantastic. The one downfall was the cost of a glass of wine, you should really reconsider when ordering a glass of red wine for $9.50 that I am sure wasn't,the more than a $5 dollar bottle of wine at Trader Joes. Loved the food, thanks.

“Wonderful Indian Food”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 27, 2013

This restaurant was a real pleasant surprise. The food was excellent, we had a butter chicken type of dish and a lamb kabobe. The service was also fast and friendly. The restaurant is in a strip mall and has that feel, but the food more than compensates. I will definitely go again.

“Great lunch time buffet”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 10, 2013

Not a buffet person but this one was delicious.
Restaurant is not large and has some outdoor seating, the crowd was electic, but we like that and the buffet inviting.
Many different choices, a few of our favourites and some new ones, waiter asked what type of Naan bread we would prefer.
The naan was the best I have ever tasted and the food delicous.
I cook Indian food often and just love to go out and try new dishes,.We took the naan home as I could not bear to leave it behind it was so thin and tasty.
Service was great and family run....always so good, we will definitely go back and very soon.

“excellent bargain”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 16, 2013

Another modest restaurant likely to be missed by visitors, but popular with locals. A very friendly, family atmosphere, and the food, though not quite the best Indian we've had, was very good. We look forward to visiting again.
