We used a Groupon for a two course meal. We had been before some years ago. The food was good and the waiting was extremely attentive, friendly and helpful in terms of suggestions. Vegetarian platter followed by two curries

Their wait staff is extremely nice, food is wonderful! Recommend the Grill, medium spicy! First time we went there, (new to Indian food), we were treated with kindness, and genuine care, and were given recommendations. Absolutely delish!
