Best Indian food we have found within 30 minutes or so of here. Always good service, kid friendly and tasty food. Pretty decent level of spiciness, and even have dosas.

We always enjoy eating Indian food and Monsoon in both Acton and Savoring in Maynard never disappoint. Always a terrific eating experience.

Liked Naan - predictable and good. Buffet has decent choices. Like convenience of location. Like inexpensive appetizer options. Did NOT appreciate - ordering at lunchtime and automatically being charged for a dinner meal (not being offered a choice).

The food was good, but I found the table and setting not adequately clean for me to enjoy the experience. I had lunch with a friend and the temperature was a bit too warm, the service only fair, and the table greasy. It was not...More

The drinks and service are decent. The food is decent quality, but not really authentic from my experience (lived in India and married to an Indian). Their quality used to be better, but recently it's been going down hill. The biggest problem appears to be...More

Service was so-so, and the food was not as good as I remember from a few years ago. The atmosphere is dark and almost dismal, with a tv blaring in the bar area. Would probably not return.
