I have been there a couple of times and tried some authentic Indian food. The restaurant is located in old town Pasadena and is very easily accessible. The food is tasty, albeit the quantity appears to be on the lesser side. However the Indian buffet option was not available, which was a little of a let down. The Tandoori butter... More

We went here with friends. My chicken was tough. I should have returned it. I won't be going back here again! We also had to wave down the waiter. Terrible.

Went with a group from work. They brought out bread to start with a dipping sauce that was very tasty. I had the Chicken Biriyni which was very good and was a large portion. I was starved when I arrived and very full when I left. The food was very good and the prices where extremely cheap considering portion sizes.... More

We wanted Indian food - we'd been to two other highly rated restaurants in this area and were disappointed - food OK not great despite good reviews.

It is a pretty well known fact by my co-workers who are from India that this is the most authentic and delicious Indian food in Pasadena. I come here about once a month. They have lots of great choices for Vegans like me.

I've only had Indian food a couple times, not my first choice when deciding where to eat. But we were with some Indian friends and they wanted to take us to this place since it was one of their favorite Indian restaurants. I left the ordering up to my friend, for the four of us, he ordered quite a bit... More

Love this place. Great lunch menu, which gives you a lot of food. We also ordered extra naan and mango chutney (yum) and some vegetable pakoras.
