Description: Our dining room dining room falls somewhere between red-velvet regal and Slum Dog casual, with white table linens, fresh roses and vinyl-coated menus. There's gentle, tinkling music, authentic if slightly wooze-inducing incense and, for better weather, a petite patio. Our menu is centered mostly on the northern half of the country but includes fiery Goan specialties and henna-red vindaloo. Our knowledgeable, welcoming and sincere staff makes ordering easy for novices. Meals begin with a complimentary stack of crisp pappadom with thimbles of thick-cut onion chutney and a green-as-fresh-cut-grass coriander version for dipping. A side order of mixed chutneys yields store-bought but no less delicious sour mango pickle and sweet mango chutney. Come visit our lovely, value-priced dreamy addition to Coconut Grove!

“Excellent Indian food!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 14, 2013

We got take out on a Saturday night since they get really busy and the wait time was over an hour. We have vegetarians as well as non vegetarians in our family. Their food is EXCELLENT! We had dal tadka, saag paneer, malai kofta, daal makhani, chicken tikka masala and chicken jalfrezi - I would rate the daal makhani at 4 out of 5, but everything else was perfect! We would love to eat there (instead of take out) when we visit Miami again.

We've eaten Indian food all around the world, this place was excellent! Friendly service, good food, cozy small place but really worth a visit if you come to Miami.

“Eat Indian food at this place!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 10, 2013

Enough said! We have been to many Indian places including India itself. This was an excellent selection of food and a good price. Service was prompt and friendly. Orders were accurate and well prepared. The place is small so be aware. We sat inside without reservations but planning ahead is recommended. You can order different spice levels and the milder version are mild. The super hot was still what I would call hot but nothing over the top. If you are a fan of VERY spicy food make them aware of that and maybe you can get the full treatment. I didn't find it as spicy as I expected. Otherwise a very good place worth making a trip or several to when you're in the area.

“Best indian flavors”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 31, 2012

We decided to go there so we called in to check wait. The lady on phone said 'one and a half hour'. So, we decided to pick the food! Which was an hour later (the food better be good!) and finally, yes! They are awesome. The food was really fab. We ordered veg korma and butter paneer with garlic & paneer naan. Everything was made to perfection. We were compelled to go back during our trip. If you like Indian food you have to try this. Yeah! They are pricey and portions are little...but still can't complain the food was awesome!!

“Definitely going back!!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed December 28, 2012

Took some of our friends to this restaurant and were seated outdoors as they couldn't accomodate ten of us inside. The waiter took our order and brought the food in batches and completely forgot about the breads. Other than that, the food was good and the restaurant apologized for the confusion about the breads and gave us couple orders of dessert complimentary to make up for the issue with not serving us the breads on time. The food was delicious and well presented. Since all of us were Indians, I can tell you, this restaurant passed the test. Everyone liked the food and it was flavorful, fresh, and well presented. Definitely going back again, soon!
