My wife had received a Groupon for $30 off this restaurant-so we decided to go. My wife, my 5 year old son and myself went on a Wednesday about 12:30pm. Upon arriving we were seated within 5 minutes. We sat at a semicircular booth where there were throw pillows everywhere. The table sits low and I think that one is just supposed to stretch out and relax (we were asked to remove our shoes before climbing onto this couch/booth). I'm so used to actually sitting with more back support so this couch/booth was interesting for me and a little tricky to actually eat while being stretched out. The menu selection was abundant, and I being the vegetarian in the family loved the choices; so it took us awhile to decide what we wanted and the person taking our order didn't come back around to see if we were ready to order until about 15 minutes later. It took longer than I thought it would to place our order. Anyway, when we finally were asked what we wanted to order, I ordered the vegetable medley with the Tikka Masala sauce and some Naan bread. My wife ordered the chicken with the Tikka Masala sauce and we ordered a Dal plate (black beans, kidney beans and a lentil sauce for our son. All of our meals came with Basmati rice. While waiting for our food we just sat back and enjoyed the music that was playing overhead. The music was of course Indian in style and serene. It was loud enough to hear it yet quiet enough so that we could talk and not have to compete with the music. The ambience was superb! After about 20 minutes our food arrived. Everything that I ate just seemed to melt in my mouth. The rice was nice and soft and my vegetables were just right-not crunchy and yet not mushy. The Naan bread came in two fairly large pieces and was very nice and fluffy. The meal was warm temperature. My son, the finicky eater, just gobbled his meal right up-couldn't quite finish it so my wife and I finished it up. My wife even was impressed with her meal and the amount that she received was better than some other Indian places that we have eaten at. The plates of food that we ordered were $11 (son's), $13 (me) and $15 (wife's)-Naan was a few dollars extra-no drinks for us. Now concerning the qauntity, I felt that perhaps for the price there could have been more food or at least some free bread (wishful thinking) I left feeling content. Here in America we are so used to being "supersized" that unless we gorge ourselves and end up having to unbutton our pants to breathe, we feel that we aren't getting our money's worth. Yes, I could have eaten more but all in all the amount of food was sufficient. Our bill came to about $44 less the $30 Groupon which brought the amount that we had to pay to around $14 + $7 tip. It was a great experience for our family and we'd definitely eat there again if we obtained another Groupon. For me personally, the food was the best Indian that I've eaten. My wife compared it to the Tikka Masala that we used to buy at Trader Joe's store in California (Trader Joe's Tikka Masala is her benchmark) and she said that her food was right up there with Trader Joe's! Towards the end of our dining the manager/owner came over and asked us how the food was. We told him if was great and he bid us a good day. This lunch was in a casual setting but the place looks like it could be formal on occasion.
