I was here in 2012/2013 with my family, and I still remember how I loved this place - need I say more? :) So obviously, I've forgotten what we ordered. But I think we had a burger and a few Indian dishes. Really nice food...More

We ordered chicken karahi and naan, the dish came with rice; the gentleman who took our order asked if we wanted it spicy or medium spicy, we choose medium spicy. Even for medium spicy the chicken had a pretty good kick, not too much but...More

The food was delicious was the place looked awful. It's embarrassing and disgusting. If the place is not clean and has a refreshing look then how do we know the food or the kitchen it sanitary or acceptable?!More

The food here is absolutely wonderful! The place could use a fresh coat of paint and all that but it doesn't take away from the food or the service.

We went for a late dinner when the hurricane was approaching, so this place was pretty quiet. Even so, the service was way above par. We talked to three different employees and all were wonderful. We just ordered simple salads, and they were fine. The...More
