If it wasn't for the hidden fees, I would have given this place a good review. The food is actually quite good. My husband and I went here a few years ago and we liked it. However, I assume there are new owners now. The place has been redecorated and there is a mandatory 15% service charge that comes tacked onto the bill, no matter what size your party is. I'm fine with the service charge. But when my husband paid the bill, the waiter actually stopped us and told him that he forgot the tip! When my husband told him he'd already paid the service charge, the waiter told him he was "required" to leave a tip. Yeah, no.
There are numerous Indian restaurants on IDrive and most of them are very good. None of them have a mandatory service charge.There is NO NEED to ever go to this place.
