Heard that this place is small and crowded so got there early. At 11:30 am, food barely came out to the buffet line. Yeh, freshly made! Unfortunately, food is not appealing and place does not appear to be very clean either. There is no appetite left ..

Authentic Indian cuisine though run by a Pakistani. The place is kind of seedy but the food is undeniably good.

My experience here was sub-optimal as a result of the following reasons: a. They took over 45 minutes to serve food b. The food that was served was taken back immediately stating that it was delivered to the wrong table c. Taste is a mere OK as the curries lack the 'authentic' Indian flavor.

All in the title. The food is super tasty. Prices are very affordable. And halal food if it makes any difference for you.

This place is really good for a fun outing enjoying pakistani/ north indian food. We came here (the four of us) in mid August and were running quite late for dinner and some other indian places were already shut but as soon as we entered we just had to wait few minutes and were seated. If you are in for... More

Bit crowded during lunch, but for the taste I would compromise the crowd and ambiance. Briyani is tasty as well. Guests would just pile up Tandoori and eat nothing but Tandoori :)

We were invited by friends and pleasantly surprised at the authenticity of their Lamb Biryani with succulent lamb in a perfect melange of spices, masala, basmati rice with the right fragrance, aroma, taste and portion! I had four sumptuous helpings till I could eat no more. They get a whopping 10. There were several other dishes ordered but the portions... More

I usually order biryani and one other side dish (leg or breast) here. It is "usually" sufficient for two people. There is only one/two instances where I was able to finish full plater of biryani by myself( too much quantity). Back in 2007 when I first tried this place, biryani was in short supply and often would run out of... More
