This is one of my go-to restaurants. Always a winner. The owners and staff are friendly and inviting. Some of the best Indian food I have ever had, and I have eaten plenty.

Good food, great service and reasonable prices. The only drawback is that the place is too congested.

I definitely recommend this restaurant to anyone looking for a great Indian meal. Lots of options and the service was fantastic. Very affordable and easy to get to. We drove and parked right out front on the street.

Pared with extremely polite gracious servers, the menu is stupendous, you will be pleased at the amount of your check when it arrives. Whenever the opportunity stop in for a quick lunch buffet - well presented, clean and appetizing, I frequent here at least twice a month for lunch. Tandoor Chicken is world class for preparation on buffet. An absolute... More

Never had a bad dish here -- as good or better than any of the places in the Indian strip on Devon. But their Nepalese selections -- the dal and the cauliflower especially -- are superb. The tandoori vegetables are the tandooriest. Reservations for dinner on Fridays and Saturdays are definitely recommended as it is often quite busy and there... More

A great restaurant and perfect if you need to get away from the masses on the Mile. We like spicy and the Chicken Vindaloo was awesomely spicy - a rarity for us - my husband always has to request a hot sauce to supplement and didn't this time. I had the Chicken Tika Masala and it was also spicy -... More
