My wife and I enjoy good Indian food. So glad we found Pooja. The food is very fresh and all the dishes we have tried are excellent. I can definitely recommend the Chicken Tikka Masala and my wife enjoys the vegetarian choices. Very friendly staff...too. This has become a regular for us.More

Last time not as good as usual tonight the owner was in and the meal was perfectly delicious! The chicken was tender and so full of rich flavors I loved it, and the okra and rice cooked perfectly. Will return, keep up the good work!

We do not have Indian food where we live in SW Arizona. So every time we visit NJ, Pooja is our preferred go to place. We both had their shrimp entrees number 53 and 61. Although I love number 54 too! The shrimp where huge,...plump and tasty! The sauces were fresh an flavorful The Naan bread and mango chutney amazing They constantly water you and check in on your eating experience. No room for dessert. This is an affordable eating experience worth going out for frequently! Consistently great experience for us for years!More

Eat here a lot, the owner wasn't in tonight, smaller portions and the chicken was chewy not as tender as usual and not as spicy, an off night? Always consistent will return, hopeful it won't happen again!

Good service and food. Like that it's a BYOB and you can split an entree 1/2 mild or medium and 1/2 very hot if you want, so everyone is happy. Nice menu, big take away business. Would return and recommend.

Tried this restaurant for the first time and we were very pleased with our meals. Nice ambiance with adequate space between tables. Large menu with lots and lots of choices with good explanations of what each was. Prices are fair and portions were very nice....We had 2 chicken dishes and the tandoor combination platter and everyone loved his/her food. The naan is made in house and was fresh and warm with char marks and yummy. Just the thing to soak up all those great sauces. Service was excellent and staff was extremely friendly. Told us that same chef has been with them since they opened over 20+ years ago. In a strip mall, but perpendicular to the street so you have to go into a shopping area to find it. Adequate parking. Busy the whole time we were there with lots of take-out orders going out the door. We really enjoyed our dinner and will definitely come again. It's also a BYOB place, so bring you wine and enjoy!More
