The waiters are very friendly and helpful. Chicken tikka masala is excellent, so are the curry sauces and various vegetable dishes. Everything we ordered was delicious and the price is right.

Easy enough to find parking. Quieter part of town. Friendly staff. Non-stop filling of our water. Never-ending Naan. My friends and i just finished our legs of a 200 mile relay race. We were starving. And the only thing that got me through my last gruelling leg of running was the thought of tikka masala. We did the lunch buffet... More

Of course, I'm not into crack...but the food here is to die for. Make this my last meal. Just a little spicy, but oh so flavorful. Medium price (I'd pay more). Quick, respectful staff. All around a must visit if you like Indian food at all.

We come here for the lunch buffet regularly. The atmosphere is nice, the Indian food is great, the price ($12.95) is reasonable, and since it is a buffet, you can get in and out on as quick as necessary to match your lunch schedule.

Buffet lunch from 11:30 - 2:30 is all you can eat! Drinks are extra. Food is delicious and can be all vegetarian or meat[lamb, chicken] Service is good. Great Indian food!

I love this place! We typically go for the lunch buffet during the week and it always is delicious, hot, and fresh tasting. I love it on samosa day because they are so good here. They can accommodate a decent sized large group for lunch too, so we will celebrate here often with 8+ people in the group. The mango... More

I really enjoyed my visit to this Indian restaurant. The staff are very professional and serve you very well. The portions are large for the entrees and the food is very tasty. I highly recommend it.

It's a nice dinner place in Bethesda - it gets a 4 rating on a relative basis ( from what I think is in general Indian food in US) ... We were a largish group - the portion sizes were sufficient and the food was not spicy. On the downside, avoid pakoras hey are too oily - the rest of... More
