“Average”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed May 17, 2012

The food is definately delicious but I felt like it took a while to come out and it was pretty overpriced. It bothered me that they charged for rice, $5 at that for a very average sized portion, not enough for more than one person in my opinion. It is decorated trendy with the colored lights always changing to give it a city-feel. There is a rooftop bar/lounge area that I did not go out on because I figured what was the point? I don't really need a view of the mall parking lot. There are so many quality Indian restaurants in Hicksville, it isn't really necessary to go here.

“Delicious Food!!!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 27, 2012

We decided to go for Restaurant week! First time and We are SO coming back!
Food was delicious! We both love Indian food! It was definitely more than what we were expecting!
We had a 7:00Pm RSVP... we arrived at 6:50 and were seated right away. We got Happy hour!!!
Their food was really good!
We can't wait to come back to this restaurant!!!

The decor inside was amazing!!!! We loved it!

Service was good, it was a little hard to understand sometimes our waiter since he had an accent but regardless of the accent EVERYTHING WAS AMAZING!

“hands down, worst place i've ever been to”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed April 1, 2012

went here twice, both times it was a disaster. the service was horrible, over an hour waiting for food... so we got up and left. on top of that, valet gave us keys (without the car) and actually asked for a tip.

the appetizers were good (but late, about an hour after ordering) and the drinks (that i had to go the bar and get) were good, but the service was so bad I can't recommend this place at all. now there's buffet for lunch and dinner... this place is going down in flames - thank god.

“Horrible! Horrible! Horrible!”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed March 4, 2012 via mobile

The restaurant looks beautiful on the outside. The interior is well decorated. The service was horrible. They switched waiters every couple of minutes and kept forgetting what we ordered. We were a group of 8 people. When they poured water for each of us there were random objects floating in ALL of the glasses. Once we placed our order we waited over an hour to be served and an additional 20 minutes just to receive the check. If you are in search of authentic Indian cuisine, do not patronize this restaurant as you will be sorely disappointed. it was also very over priced. It averages about $60 per person and that doesn't include dessert.
