We reached late in afternoon and there was chill in the air. Had our lunch at the restaurant and got some rice on the go for night as it would be late in when we get to the next destination. Food was good. Chole batura, Dosa and veg meal were available at that hour. Once done walked down to the... More

If you are looking for home-tasting Indian food, make your way here for lunch. It is perhaps one of the best Indian buffets I have had in a long time! Yes, coming from an Indian, that should hold some weight. Great vegetarian options - both North and South Indian food.

We ordered from the menu. They were out of pani puri. Their papri chaat was not good. Their daal makhani was very sour, it tasted like they either added to much lime or it was stale, Their chilly paneer was very very tomatoey. The only dish edible was the pav bhaji. The servers were courteous. The restaurant was located at... More

Our favorite, chicken tikki masala was as tasty as could be with plenty of tender chicken. Vindaloo was also very good. We had very prompt friendly service.

We went there for an early dinner, when the place wasn't very crowded. The food was okay but the service left a lot to be desired. It took a while for the server to arrive and we had to ask for water, silver and napkins. Definitely not worth the price.

If you craved Indian Food in the Lake Tahoe area, this probably the only choice. I cook Indian food everyday and was unfortunately craving for some Chaat. Several items on the extensive menu were not really available. We were not offered water and had to request water a couple times. The waiter forgot to bring napkins and silverware and again... More

We were pleasantly surprised to see a perfect layout of chaat items for our starters. To prepare Indian chaat as per our taste and requirement was a real treat in a small pretty town of Lake Tahoe. Even the other items were good to taste. We relished hot fresh garlic naan. The icing on the cake was aam ras (thick... More

Uber awesome food. We were two couples with a kid, and thoroughly enjoyed the food here. The host and the facilitators were very hospitable. Highly recommended.

Went for afternoon buffet. The taste was very average and the price was high. But this was the only Indian restaurant I found in Lake Tahoe.

We had a vegetarian lunch at Nikki's during our stay at South Lake Tahoe. We ate a la carte although they also have a buffet, which seemed to have a good number of choices and the food looked quite appetizing. Our food tasted very good and I could see that it was prepared with care (The naans were exceptional) The... More
