“Not bad Indian food. Mediocre not top notch but passable....”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 7, 2012 via mobile

We had the dinner sets(u took non vegetarian meat lovers set platter) it was decently spiced (though not fiery hot in any way), and came in small morsels just like a "sampler" would. Not the best for a hungry eater but again its not insufficient either.

If you had not had much Indian food then this will be above average but having lived in Singapore, Uk, Toronto, NYC, there are many better restaurants outside India that you can compare to.

The rice was spiced but not adequately fragrant. Garlic naan was above average and the meats were adequately spice but not tender. Some of the meats like the kabab was a little too dry. The dessert, Kulfi and Jamun was a disappointment. The Jamun was powdery and the Kulfi felt more
Like normal creamy ice cream and didnt have any ground cardamom, saffron, or fresh pistachio nuts. The Pistachio was all mashed into the ice cream. It was also dumped into the metal bowl and probably emptied from a plastic "sauce" dish mould and one could see remnant ridges of the container moulding. All in all, didnt have the nicety it deserved.

“Nice menu choices”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 27, 2012

After a long day I was craving a flavorful and a large meal. This restaurant hit both spots. I just hoped that the service was bit diligent. Other than that I order the mixed grill and a mango lassie.
everything tasted fresh, spicy but not too hot.
