We stayed in Coconut Grove for 4 nights. We were in need of a curry so went here on the first night. We were silly in thinking that the food would not be very spicy hot so we ordered super hot ( the restaurant gives you a choice from mild to super hot) - how wrong we were! It was... More

I loved the food there. Mango chicken is must try. Only flaw of this restaurant is serving time is slightly longer, it could be because we went during busy hour.

Seated promptly with our reservation and our server was on point throughout our meal. We started with the delicious vegetable samosas, then enjoyed mango curry chicken, garlic naan and shrimp biryani. A-plus on heat. Paired with semi-sweet Riesling and Kingfisher of course! Perfection.

I'm a huge fan of Indian food, but it's hard to find the good stuff in south Florida. Well, I've got news: THIS PLACE IS FANTASTIC! I have standards when trying a new Indian restaurant: papadam with chutney, vegetable samosas, chicken saag with basmati rice, and pistachio khulfi. These items have to be on the menu, or I just leave.... More

I had a fairly low expectation for an Indian restaurant in Miami but this was surprisingly good and as good as any decent Indian restaurant in the England!They are able to give you choice on how hot you want a dish and seemed to get it right for everyone in the group. Very impressed and very enjoyable

Had heard some good comments about this place when it was at a smaller venue, finally got chance to try it at their new setting. The place is large and designed for productivity, feels more like an elegant banquet hall than a restaurant. It is loud, but not more than most modern restaurants. We were seated promptly, ordered some appetizers... More

So sorry to write this review, but I have to. The worst experience since I moved to Miami. I made a reservation for this evening, and as soon as me and my boyfriend arrived we were seated at small table in the left corner of the restaurant. That was the only nice thing. After 10 minutes server approached and asked... More

Dined here with friends. We had the lentil crackers (so delicious, yet salty). Garlic Naan. Chicken Tikka Masala. Lamb Roganjosh. Saag Chicken with Spinach. We enjoyed sitting outside al fresco. The service was impeccable. The food was outstanding. I would definitely dine here again. Highly recommended. Inside seating was very busy (noisier). The bar seating area is nice, if that's... More

The food was lovely but it was a small portion. The waiter was very nice and attentive. He explained the levels of spice in the food and he was constantly checking in on us to see if we needed anything

My husband and dine at this place with our ex-colleagues last Friday, it was a good ambience and gets really crowded especially if you did not or did make any reservation. It is a full house when we had our dinner there. We ordered butter chicken (husband's favorite) it tasted like there is a lot of clove and i don't... More

Description
Our dining room dining room falls somewhere between red-velvet regal and Slum Dog casual, with white table linens, fresh roses and vinyl-coated menus. There's gentle, tinkling music, authentic if slightly wooze-inducing incense and, for better weather, a petite patio.

Our menu is centered mostly on the northern half of the country but includes fiery Goan specialties and henna-red vindaloo. Our knowledgeable, welcoming and sincere staff makes ordering easy for novices. Meals begin with a complimentary stack of crisp pappadom with thimbles of thick-cut onion chutney and a green-as-fresh-cut-grass coriander version for dipping. A side order of mixed chutneys yields store-bought but no less delicious sour mango pickle and sweet mango chutney.

Come visit our lovely, value-priced dreamy addition to Coconut Grove!
