“Wonderful food. Amaaazing service!”
On a "staycation" in nearby Columbia, Maryland (I live in Silver Spring and checked into a nearby Marriott as a respite from the usual), I ventured out to this popular Indian restaurant.
My party of two (2) did not have a reservation on a busy Sunday evening. We were warmly welcomed and asked to wait about 15 minutes. Based on the delightful fragrances floating through the room, we were happy to do so! As I was walking with a cane, my friend and I were kindly offered seating in the waiting area. When a lovely, candlelit booth opened by the window, we were escorted to our dining table.
Service was prompt and efficient. Our questions were answered thoroughly. The team approach to service meant that we never waited for fresh beverages or delivery of the next item. Every staff member's attention was woven with elegance and kindness.
The food was delicious! Iced tea was crisp and flavorful. Basmati rice was cooked to perfection. Chicken tikka was tender and complimented by a smooth marsala sauce. Chicken saag was creamy and spiced exactly as I asked. The pakora were a bit heavier than expected and mostly made with potatoes rather than the assortment of vegetables that I expected. But that was only a minor disappointment. And it was the only one.
I saw couples, small parties and large family gatherings including children. All were treated with great care. The food was great, service fabulous and the price quite reasonable. I would definitely go here again!
