This restaurant has been in business for 30 years now and I know why. Traditional Indian food at it's best. Every bite tells a story of herbs and spices that I never grew up on but can't get enough of. Their desserts are un-traditional for...More

We went for the buffet one night, which was average. However, the naan was the BEST I have ever had (and I've had some great naan!). Not sure I'd go back to the buffet - I'll try the dinner menu next time, but will definitely...More
