I have stopped here for take out over the last several months when I have had a hankering for Indian food but haven't had the time to cook. They are always friendly and accommodating - willing to explain things on the menu and to make recommendations. Food is good and service is fast. I have never eaten in so I... More

This is a great spot for Indian food and a good place to introduce this challenging cuisine to novices. The menu has good information about what you are ordering and it's nice to be able to request what degree of heat you are comfortable with. All in all a great spot for some tasty food.

It is was a Saturday evening, my family and I were binging on Netflix when we decided that it would be great to order some takeout. Now here in West Hartford, foodies do not have much delivery options as we would like, so we decided to have some Indian food. Now while I was deployed to Iraq, I was stationed... More

I recently enjoyed their lunch buffet with my family. The food was very authentic, well presented, and a wide selection of dishes (none of which I could/can pronounce). Many were vegetarian and gluten free. Staff hovered nearby ensuring the buffet line remained supplied and fresh. The tables were also well attended, providing water, beverages, removing dishes, and answering question (in... More

One of the best restaurants in the Hartford area! Food is always cooked perfectly and delicious, I love how the buffet isn't spicy but still is so flavorful. The staff is attentive always trying to refill your water when needed. The staff also always listens to how spicy you want your food so that two people at the same table... More

Not our first time here, in fact, we live 20 miles or so away but whenever we think Indian, this restaurant comes to mind. Food is excellent, service is great and though almost always busy, they always have a table. Went on New Year's and still were able to be seated quickly and all left pleased with out meals.

5 of us went to this restaurant for dinner. Food was great, but service was poor. We waited a long time to place dinner order. They didn't ask for drink order at all. We had to remind them. Food was very slow to come to our table and one item was admitted, yet we were charged for it (and had... More

I mostly order in from this location, but they have been consistently good with their food. When I have eaten at the restaurant, the service is quick and polite. The food is always nicely presented and their breads (the aloo paratha especially) are hot and tasty. I usually order the salmon either in the tandoori oven or in the Fish... More

This was the second time that I had ever had Indian food. First time was 20 years ago and the person I was with told me where we happen to dine the food was not very good. So I was in no any hurry to experience this food again. I had an Entertainment Coupon and a friend and I were... More
