Extensive and varied menu. The food is good and inexpensive. Papadems with tamarind dipping sauce welcomes diners. The room is pleasant enough and the service is adequate.

The flavors of India come alive here with new twists on old standards and chutneys that are out of this world. Wait staff is super efficient and the price is great!

We had chicken korma, palak paneer, and samosas. All of them were very good. We eat a lot of Indian and this was one of our favorite meals. The only thing that was not great was the naan which was a little soggy
