While the menu is extensive and very interesting, execution was not very good. The lamb biryani was heavy and lacked dimension, and the chicken tikka kadai had an oddly soft and chewy texture like it was undercooked. The nan was greasy. The dal was OK. I was so sad - I wanted to love this place because of the extensive... More

Years ago this place was amazing. There was a young man who was the waiter for the entire restaurant and he was so thoughtful and attentive. The service was wonderful and whenever we visited from out of town, he would remember us. The food is amazing. Best Indian around. The service is insufferable. The other couple we were dining with...

Have eaten here twice while traveling on business. Both times I've been pleased with the variety, preparation and of the food and warm friendly service. A REAL TREAT.

Just came from lunch buffet and was treated to authentic, delicious assortment of Indian entrees and sides. Service was very attentive and waiter kept water glass filled and used plates removed quickly. Reasonably priced for all you can eat buffet including rice pudding for dessert. Will definitely return when I am in the area.

Bad food, very unclean, staff does not care. Don't make the mistake of trying this place. No real service, more like help yourself and figure it out yourself.

If you walk/drive by this storefront Indian restaurant you MAY NOT want to venture in. But please do. You wont be sorry. We were there for dinner and was NOT disappointed. All their food is prepared to order and comes out hot and delicious. They also do a lunch buffet that I have been wanting to try but their dinner... More

This place is an institution in Pittsfield, a faithful constant on North Street over the years. Never busy in the evening. Simple, but tasteful decor. Bollywood music videos. Service is very low key, nobody is in a rush here - which is nice. Depending on who's cooking, the food can be average to excellent. We have eaten here many dozen... More

Great selection here and they really do honor your choice when it comes to how spicy you like your food. Great veggie choices, friendly staff and a nice atmosphere.

While staying at Piitsfield's "Hotel on North" (an outstanding new hotel, by the way), and being unwilling to venture out on a chilly night, my wife and I ordered takeout from this restaurant, which is across the street. The restaurant is unsophisticated - a simple, quiet space with Indian music whispering in the background. But for fans of Indian food,... More
