We came in on a night when travel was challenging for many in our party, and as a result not everyone could make the reservation at the same time. The staff here allowed my husband to use their resources to charge is cell phone while we waited. We order 3 appetizer plates - quite good - and were finally able... More

This charming restaurant is tucked away in an upper corner of a shopping district, but well worth the time to search for it. Exquisite indian food served by staff who are attentive and knowledgeable. The kitchen is adept at adjusting spice levels so that no one need worry about food being too spicy. Had an exceptional meal on a Sunday... More

We had the pleasure to eat here this evening and our whole experience was superb. Waiters were all attentive and could not do enough to help, we had a nice table nice atmosphere and brilliant food at a sensible price which indicated the quality of the food.

My son and I went here for dinner with a groupon, which was graciously accepted no questions asked (not sure why others had problems with their groupons). The restaurant is beautiful and immaculate. We were served our appetizers within five minutes of sitting down (Aloo chat papri and garlic naan), literally it was that fast. Once we ordered, the meal... More

The food was okay okay. It was not up to the expectations. Though I liked the candle light and the way the table was setup but the taste of food was fine!

The service was great and the food outstanding. Make sure you have the Spinach Salad, it has an Indian name but I can't remember it. They will know if you say Spinach Salad.

The wall and ceiling murals in this posh place are like nothing I've seen in another restaurant, and the food is just as spectacular. They had a brief rough patch a couple years ago with a sub chef but are back on their game. Our favorites are the aloo chat papri appetizer, samosas, malai kofta (potato and cheese dumplings in...

This restaurant lives off groupons and does not seem to care whether its customers are satisfied. If you come with a groupon, they will come up with all kinds of caveats on how it can be used. The only thing worth having is the buffet, because at least then you can see what you are getting in advance. However, the... More

This Indian restaurant is tucked away in the mall, but you will not be sorry if you happen upon it. I knew from the moment I tasted the delectable complimentary papadum that this would be a great meal. Our waiter was friendly and knowledgeable and recommended the Kurkure Patte, which was amazing. I wish I could eat that every day.... More

I have been going to this location since it was Tandori Nights. When I learned it became another restaurant, I was worried that it changed. We went and realized it is still the same fantastic food as it always has been. Great service, great flavors. My only suggestion is to please clean the bathrooms more often and pay attention to...
