“What a treat!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 1, 2012

What a find, in Yakima, no less! Went with several friends, none of whom had been before either, and was prepared to be disappointed. Driving into the parking lot and viewing the place from the exterior didn't improve my confidence one bit. And then, we were in.

What a surprise. Elegantly lit and tastefully decorated; I could have sworn we just walked into another time zone. The service was gracious from the word go. After studying the extensive menu (with a number of great-looking options that I will keep in mind for my vegetarian friends) we gorged ourselves on dal makhni ,pakoras, garlic naan, lavender nan, chicken korma, chicken tikka and tandoori, and then topped it all off with mango kulfi.

Everything was fresh, wholesome, and delectable.

There was not a word of dissatisfaction to be heard from any of us. We'll be back, for certain.

“Decent Indian food”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed June 25, 2012

No terrible for Yakima. I thought most items were a little heavy and there was a lot of fruit flies (never a good sign)

“Great buffet”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 20, 2012

We eat here everytime we go to Yakima. The food is fairly authentic and the buffet is fresh. Service is very friendly. One of the better restaurants in Yakima for us.

“Taj Express Food Poisoning”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed May 8, 2012

I ate at their closed affiliate (Taj Express) and suffered such bad food poisoning that I missed two days of work. There is no way that I would try the parent restaurant as a result. For the record, it was the baighan bartha.
