“wide variety of Indian food, nicely spiced”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 21, 2012

have eaten here many times, always find something I haven't tried before, and it is usually excellent, with just the right amount of spice--they try hard to accommodate your request.

“Indian food in NH”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed October 11, 2012

There aren't a lot of choices in the Upper Valley if you're in the mood for Indian food. We are regulars. It is not exceptional but it is reliable and consistent. Lots of sauce, not so much meat.

“Terrible Food”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed August 20, 2012

On the few occasions I have eaten here, I have been disappointed. The last time I went I found the food dreadful. I grew up with wonderful Indian restaurants in the UK, especially in London, and have eaten in fine restaurants on trips to India, but especially in New Delhi, Lucknow, Jaipur, Udaipur, and Madras. This restaurant, for some reason (but perhaps catering for the American palate) fails to season the food properly. A classic example has been the Tandoori Murghi (Chicken), where they had obvious skimped on the yogurt, lemon, and spices marinade beforehand. Even their Chicken Tikka looks and tastes nothing like the original recipe!

If you are used to good Indian food, I would avoid this restaurant. Sad, as Hanover deserves a great Indian restaurant.

“Great Indian food!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 9, 2012 via mobile

I've been going to this restaurant for about ten years! The food is great and the lunch portions are decently priced. Dinner portions are a little expensive, but overall this is a great place to go!

“Fix the service!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 27, 2012

Excellent food (I'm afraid to know how much ghee they use!) - but TERRIBLE service. They serve the take out folks ahead of the seated patrons. We waited for over an hour one night for our food. My advice: get your food to go.
